Celebrity Apprentice star and potential 2012 Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump visited Portsmouth, NH yesterday. Here's what he had to say about gas prices:
"You look at these nations - Saudi Arabia, we protect them and then they want to raise the price of fuel. It's not high enough?"
"So it would be very easy and very quick to get gasoline prices down."
"Gasoline prices are $4, $5... they are going to $6 and $7 as sure as you're standing there."
"An then if you look at Saudi Arabia... what they did... it's unbelievable."
"Three days ago they announced essentially that they are going to raise the price of oil by cutting back on production. And we have nobody to speak to these people. We have nobody that calls and talks and says, 'You're not going to do it fellas. We're protecting you. You wouldn't be there except for us.' We have nobody."
"Now yesterday, the President said that he has very little impact over the price of gasoline. I think he's 100% wrong, because OPEC is setting the price of fuel."
"We have oil all over the place, all over the place. Every ship at sea is loaded up with oil. They don't know where to dump it. And yet everyday we are setting records. Pretty soon we're going to be at that $150 a gallon, the all time record."
"Now when the President says that, I mean it's pretty sad."
