GREENVILLE, SC (CNN) - Presidential candidates are known for making promises on the campaign trail.
Republican contender Michele Bachmann told a crowd of supporters in Greenville, South Carolina on Tuesday that she will bring down gas prices when she's president.
"Under President Bachmann you will see gasoline come down below $2 a gallon again," said Bachmann. "That will happen."
If she is elected, it may be a tough promise to keep.
Gas prices are tied to global oil prices and are not controlled by Washington.
Bachmann did not say specifically how she would help gas prices come down again, but her website says as president, she would ease restrictions on drilling.
