Newt Promises $2.50/Gallon Gas

GOP presidential candidate Newt Gingrich wants everybody to share one idea with their friends and family. That "I represent $2.50 a gallon gasoline," the former U.S. Speaker of the House said at a rally Thursday night at the Coeur d'Alene Best Western Inn. The price of gas now is a major part of Gingrich's game plan as he seeks to become president. He said President Barack Obama was responsible for "the most expensive gas in history" in 2011. Gingrich made two appearances in Coeur d'Alene Thursday night. The other was at a fundraiser at a home on Neachen Bay, where tickets to the event were $1,000 each/David Cole, Coeur d'Alene Press.

Question: If Newt Gingrich truly could bring the country $2.50 gas, would you support his presidential candidacy?
