Obama to Man Concerned over High Gas Prices: "Think About a Trade-In"

Gas prices have more than doubled under President Obama's Administration and he has, at least, approximately two years left in office.  At the moment, the average price for a gallon of gas is $3.75.  To visualize that, here is a graph detailing the historic rise:

With each passing day, oil and gas prices continue to skyrocket.  With unrest in the Middle East, US off-shore drilling banned, and inflation ballooning, unless things change, the trend will continue into the foreseeable future.

So, what is the President of the United States going to do?  Make jokes and insult concerned citizens who are finding it had to afford the things that he has done.
Mr. Obama
When asked by a man at a wind turbine factory about crippling gas prices, Mr. Obama laughed and responded:
"If you're complaining about the price of gas and you're only getting 8 miles a gallon, you know.  You might want to think about a trade-in."
Yeah, that's real hilarious Mr. President.  Nice answer to a concerned citizen.  But really, how can a middle class worker afford a new car when his policies have made it much harder to pay our bills?

Mr. Obama is indeed a joker, but not one that tells jokes.  He simply is one.
