The media are showing bias in failing to give much attention to the rise in gasoline prices under President Barack Obama, says former presidential candidate Mike Huckabee.

Gas prices now average $3.82 per gallon around the country, about double the level prevailing when Obama took office.

“When George [W.] Bush was president, we heard about gas prices every time,” Huckabee, now a radio talk show host told Fox News Monday, Politico reports.

“And they would take cameras to the pumps and have someone almost tearfully explaining that they were paying almost $2.50 a gallon. It’s amazing how quiet the media has been when gas prices are double what they were when President Obama took office. They’re the highest in the country’s history.”

Huckabee notes that consumers are paying $6 a gallon in some parts of California now. “When that hits people, it hits them hard,” he said. “That’s a gut-punch to Americans that I think they’ll remember on Election Day.”
