Gas Prices Spike in Obama's Neighborhood

Prices around the White House are high.


It doesn't pay to live in President Obama's neighborhood, at least in the pain in the gas department. The Watergate Exxon, pictured on top, and the M Street Exxon, shown at bottom, are just a mile from the White House. It is highly unlikely that President Obama is aware of these high prices, but Vice President Joe Biden, Majority Leader Harry Reid, and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi all pass by these stations from time to time, giving them a bird's eye view of the gas price surges Americans have been witnessing since the democracy protests began in Egypt and Libya.
