Where is GOP finger-pointing for falling gas prices?

Isn't it funny, when gas prices were going up all we heard from the Republicans was how gas prices were totally President Barack Obama's responsibility, and how every cent we were paying was all due to his administration.

Oh yes, the Republicans told us, President Obama controls gas prices himself, and it was all his fault that gas was over $4 a gallon.

But what do you know, gas prices have been going back down again. And since the Republicans swore on their "honor" that everything is totally under Mr. Obama's control, that can only mean that it is entirely President Obama and no one else that has brought those prices back down for us.

Thank you so much, Mr. President! I guess all those Republicans are going to be lining up to show their gratitude. Might I suggest a great big kiss?
