Christie won't address rising gas prices

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) said he isn't running for president, so he doesn't have to answer any questions about rising gas prices.

"I'm not answering the gas thing, 'cause heck, I don't know. I don't know what I'd do, and if I decided to run for president, I'd have to come up with an answer," he said at town-hall meeting Tuesday. "But I'm not running for president, so I'm not going to worry about what I can do about gas taxes, and I could make up some answer, but I'm not going to do that for you."
