Look, even a girl from South Central with a community college degree can figure this out: you increase the supply of any commodity, its price goes down. If that increase in supply has its origin at home rather than overseas--in countries which, in their envy, would love to take America down a peg or two--the price goes down. Even if the POTUS simply called a press conference and lambasted Congress for blocking all methods of increasing supply and urged its members to stop standing in the way and to stop proposing that the new middle men--themselves--take the place of the old ones (the oil companies), the price would go down.
So what's the president waiting for?
