Stupidity watch: states with the highest gas prices back Obama
There is a curious relationship between a state’s gas prices and presidential politics. The higher the price of gasoline, the higher President Obama’s prospects of winning that state.
Obama’s electoral map to victory bears a remarkable resemblance to a map of the nation’s highest gas prices.
California, Illinois, Washington, D.C., and New York – all solidly Democratic – are among the costliest for gas. Wyoming, Montana, Oklahoma and Utah – where Lyndon Johnson was the last Democrat to win the presidential vote – are among the cheapest.
