Outgoing U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann takes credit on Twitter for the low gas prices in the U.S. The failed presidential candidate posted a photo of herself standing under a gas station sign on Friday via Twitter with the caption, “$2 gas, anyone?”
Bachmann had pledged during her failed presidential campaign to bring gas prices back under two dollars a gallon. Never mind the fact that energy analysts have said the real reason for the low gas prices in the U.S. is largely due to an increase in supply and decrease in demand.

@TUSK81 Something tells me she's never pumped her own gas, let alone cared about cost. She's pointing at the sign because America is Super.

@owillis Can't wait until her "thank me for your healthcare" pics. Then irony can die like an OG.
