Why Didn't Obama Take More Credit for Low Gas Prices?

I love this old picture from 1938. It shows a sign in front of a Gas Station in Santa Fe, New Mexico. The sign shows Gas at 20 1/2 cents a gallon. The sign gives a breakdown on the cost, showing the various cost components leading to the price. At this price, they also came out and filled your car up, checked your oil and tire pressure, and washed your windshield. Good old days!
