From ABC’s The Note:
DEMOCRATIC SUPER PAC LINKS ROMNEY TO BIG OIL.“Priorities USA Action today released a television ad ‘Romney’s Big Oil Trail’ to expose the true motivations of big oil’s attacks on President Obama — to elect Mitt Romney who stands to protect big oil’s profits at the expense of middle class Americans. ‘While President Obama is taking serious action to make America less dependent on dirty and dangerous sources of Middle East oil and create clean energy jobs here at home, Mitt Romney and the oil companies bankrolling his campaign are profiting from high gas prices politically and financially,’ said Paul Begala, Senior Advisor for Priorities USA Action. The ad will run both on television and online in Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, New Mexico, Nevada, Ohio and Virginia.” WATCH:http://bit.ly/HgxiOW
Truth is, all this gas price talk is just gasbaggery.

Not to get technical about it.
