Rep. Tom Price (R-Ga.) alleged Wednesday that President Obama is “tone-deaf” on energy policy, the latest signal that falling gasoline prices won’t stop Republican attacks on the White House.

“Gas prices, I believe, are one of the poster-children, if you will, for the tone-deaf policy of the current administration,” Price said during a policy breakfast hosted by The Hill on Wednesday morning.

“I say tone deaf because it’s clear that the administration either doesn’t understand the connection between gas prices and small business and job creation or doesn’t want to understand it,” he said.

Price said high gasoline prices are taking a major toll on small-business owners.
