That was Gingrich. I think almost everyone went on that. But keep in mind that he is famous for making outrageous predictions like that. I'm not sure that many other politicians fall into the category you are staking out in your OP. I think it's more common that they blame the opposition for higher gas prices without actually promising to lower them. But I could be wrong...
