Mitt Romney Once Touted Carpools, Fuel-Efficient Vehicles


WASHINGTON -- A funny thing has happened with Mitt Romney's talk about gas prices.

Evidence has surfaced showing that as governor of Massachusetts, Romney behaved much as President Barack Obama is behaving now, describing high gas prices as the natural result of global market pressures and calling for the same vehicle-efficiency standards he now ridicules Obama for embracing.

This has happened at a time when Romney is calling for more drilling and has ramped up his rhetoric about how Obama has failed to curb prices at the pump. Prominent economists have debunked those talking points, saying there's virtually nothing the president can do to lower them in the short term.
