Mr. DUNCAN of South Carolina. Americans, it's been 1,044 days since the United States Senate has passed a budget for America. Back in 2009, the average American family spent $173.80 a month on gasoline. In 2011, that number had risen to $368.09 a month on gasoline. What could you use that difference, $194, what could you use that money for?
I guarantee you, with the policies coming out of this administration, gasoline prices are going up. It will be more than $368 a month for gasoline unless we make changes to American energy policies and be energy independent.
