George Conway on Trump's Gas Prices Boast: 'You've Figured Out How to Turn Lies Into a Renewable Source of Energy?'

George Conway has called out President Donald Trump yet again on social media after he appeared to take credit for a recent drop in gas prices.

"Do you think it's just luck that gas prices are so low, and falling?" Trump wrote on Twitter New Year's Day. "Low gas prices are like another Tax Cut!"

"You've figured out how to turn lies into a renewable source of energy?" responded Conway, who is married to Trump counselor Kellyanne Conway.

You’ve figured out how to turn lies into a renewable source of energy?

Trump did not expand on his suggestion that current low prices are not just down to "luck" on Twitter. Instead, he went on to accuse Senate Democrats of "obstructing" his nominations.

According to USA Today, factors influencing today's gas prices include government budget decisions, an oversupply of petroleum, seasonal fluctuations in gas costs and demand, as well as more general concerns about the economy.

Although today's low gas prices may indicate a good year for motorists, a December decision by the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC)'s to slash crude oil production could see them rise, the publication continued.

"In some respects, putting an accurate forecast together for fuel prices in 2019 feels like playing darts blind and hoping for a bullseye," GasBuddy petroleum analysis head Patrick DeHaan told USA Today. "Some of that feel comes from the White House playing an increasing role in volatility. You never know what President Trump might do or say."

George Conway, a prominent Washington, D.C. lawyer, often criticizes Trump online—in spite of his wife's position. He recently called the president a "liar" over his role in the hush money payments that saw ex-Trump lawyer Michael Cohen sentenced to three years in jail.

A frequent critic of the president's honesty, Conway shared a New Year's Eve Politifact article listing ten inaccurate Trump claims from 2018. Earlier, he also retweeted a photograph of a Washington Post article titled "Trump averaged 15 false statements a day in 2018."

On Tuesday Conway called Trump out yet again on Twitter, writing that the presidency had been pervaded by "an intractably malignant narcissism," in a comment questioning former presidential nominee Mitt Romney's views on Trump.

Back in August, The Post profiled Conway and his wife, detailing the ways the couple's starkly opposing opinions of the president affect their day-to-day life. In the article, Kellyanne called her husband's tweets "disrespectful." But George claimed her real problem was "with her boss, not me."

"If my wife were the counselor to the CEO of Pepsi and I had a problem with her boss, I would simply drink my Coke and keep my mouth shut," George said. "If the president were simply mediocre or even bad, I'd have nothing to say. This is much different."
