Speaking in Phoeniz, Arizona, yesterday, President Obama told his audience not to go out and buy a gas guzzling car just because gas prices are low right now.
“Gas prices aren’t going to be low forever, so don’t start suddenly saying you don’t have to worry about fuel efficiency,” Obama told a crowd in Phoenix on Thursday.
“If you’re going out shopping for a new car, don’t think it’s always going to be this low, because then you’ll be surprised and you’ll be mad at me later … and I’ll be able to say, ‘I told you don’t get a gas guzzler because gas is going to go back up.’
“But while it’s low, enjoy it. And feel free to spend some of that money on local businesses, who then will hire more people and put more folks back to work.”
