Guy who travels in 8 MPG vehicle in 45-vehicle motorcade needles another guy for allegedly burning too much fossil fuel

Obama: Expect little short-term relief on gas prices - Fall River, MA - The Herald News
But the president said it won’t happen overnight and if any politician says it’s easy, “they’re not telling the truth.”

“Gas prices? They’re going to still fluctuate until we can start making these broader changes, and that’s going to take a couple of years to have serious effect,” Obama said.  [But Obama has already been in office for two years.  If he knows how to give us lower gas prices in two years, why didn't he do it two years ago?]

Obama needled one questioner who asked about gas prices, now averaging close to $3.70 a gallon nationwide, and suggested that the gentleman consider getting rid of his gas-guzzling vehicle.

“If you’re complaining about the price of gas and you’re only getting 8 miles a gallon, you know,” Obama said laughingly. “You might want to think about a trade-in.”
