Sean Hannity had quite a field day this afternoon ridiculing Barack Obama for saying that inflating car tires and keeping cars tuned up would save as much oil as drilling on the Continental Shelf would produce. Hannity couldn't get enough of it. He played the clip over and over.
My first thought was that it wasn't Obama's best day, but I could see his underlying point: Saving a gallon of gas is just as valuable (and better for the environment) than drilling for one. Still, after hearing Hannity attack the point so relentlessly, I thought I should at least check to see if what Obama said might actually be true.
