At the beginning of 2007,when the democrats took over congress with what Nancy Pelosi would later call “a commonsense plan to help bring down skyrocketing gas prices” gas was $2.34.
Today, it’s $3.96. The AVERAGE price since they took over is $3.00.
But what is the real cost? To figure that out, the Glenn Beck Program presents a new metric—the Flat screen Factor.
The average American uses about 700 gallons of gas per year, and Americans have 1.9 vehicles per household.
Meaning that since the democrats took over, the commonsense democratic plan has cost the average household about 1175 dollars. The average 42 inch plasma, now costs 975 dollars.
Meaning the real measure of gas prices----how many Flat Screens has the rise in gas prices cost you—or the Flat Screen Factor---- is 1.203.
