I see why you'd think that. He says a lot about the Constitution only allowing gold and silver to be money, but when you actually press him on it, I'm pretty sure he's said that he'd want a basket of commodities like Paul Ryan has advocated.
Measuring oil by gold, the price per gallon is something like 25 cents. But that doesn't matter. He isn't going to be president anyway. I give him money just to be a pain in everyone's ass. And it's working.
