Election 2012

I'm putting this under this heading because with the upcoming election I think it's relevant

Under Obama's presidency 1st term:
2009 = $3.04
2012 = $3.47 (old number, currently 3.77)
Risen 45.6% in less than 4 yrs

Under Bush presidency 1st term (which included 9/11):
2001 = $1.55
2004 = $1.85 (complete year - remember how people complained then?)
Rose 30.5% in 4 years

What they did not give was for Bush's 2nd term:
If we start with the 2004 price and end with the 2009 price we get:
2004 = $1.85
2009 = $3.04
Rose about 61%!

This included Katrina, as well as other hurricanes and tornadoes and wildfires - as well as war overseas ... It would be interesting to get a graphic of the prices to see of it was a steady rise, or I'd there seemed to be some sort of spike in prices surrounding an event or two
