Yemeni Opens Obama Gas Station in South Carolina Print E-mail
by Tom McGregor    Thu, Jul 31, 2014, 10:02 pm

An Obama Gas station, owned by a Yemeni, is charging four cents more per gallon of unleaded gas than it's nearest rival, El Cheapo, but nevertheless Democrat voters in Columbia, South Carolina are filling their gas tanks with Obama Gas.

LIVE 5 WCSC reports that, "A gas station on Columbia's North Main Street has been renamed and redecorated after President Obama. Two gas stations sit at the corner of Columbia's North Main Street and Prescott Road, the El Cheapo and another station with a new name -- Obama."

Obama Gas patron Chiquita Burton is quoted as saying that, "A lot of people think that it's morally and ethically wrong to have the president beside beer, wine and cigarettes. That's portraying an image to society and also to the children here."

According to Live 5 WSCS, "I see more people come in excited with the name," said owner Sam Alhanik, who got the idea from a friend who created an Obama Gas Station in Michigan. Alhanik has only owned this station for two months. Although born in Yemen, he says he supports America's president. "It's the first president of black people," he said. "It's our president. We like him."

Some South Carolina Democrats believe that it's their civic duty to buy Obama Gas.

The excitement of an Obama-nything is nuts!...This guy wants to play the race card & he is trying to make profit off that?...Give us a break!...This president (or king should I say) has ruined the greatest country in the world & to make it through the next two years (if we can) will leave us in the weakest state ever in history aka...military, economics, health-care, world influence, etc!...May the Lord have mercy on us!
