Gasoline.

Unless you're living under a rock, avoiding the use of a car for your daily commute, or can afford to fill up your tank each time you're at the pump (without complaining), I think most of us can agree with Jimmy McMillan.

Yes, the Jimmy McMillan, founder of The Rent Is Too Damn High Party. The mustachioed political activist who garnered buzz after his monologue at the 2010 New York gubernatorial debate is now pushing a new message with a similar name — "Gasoline Is Too Damn High Movement."

In the series of videos, among other statements, he says President Obama "hasn't gotten the message that gasoline is too damn high because you're picked up by a chauffeured limousine everyday."

If you think you've seen the last of McMillan, think again — the man has White House ambitions. Although he's a registered Democrat, McMillan has switched parties to run as a Republican in the 2012 election.
