You may want to sit down, because this story may be shocking to you. Our illegitimate president, F. Joe Biden, is now presiding over a new high for American gas prices.
The average price of gas in the United States rose to a new high on Tuesday of $4.37 a gallon, according to AAA.
The record high represents a 17-cent spike since last week and comes just two months after prices climbed in March to the previous high of $4.33 per gallon. The spike also comes despite efforts from the Biden administration to reduce pain at the pump, including calling on oil and gas producers to ramp up production and ordering the release of millions of barrels of oil from the U.S. emergency stockpile.
Man, if only we had a gas pipeline which could run through North America, the United States would be energy independ-. Oh, never mind.
Energy prices overall have risen by about a third over the past year, contributing to the soaring inflation that has dented President Joe Biden’s approval ratings and undercut support for his agenda.
The only bright side of this debacle is that F. Joe Biden in hemorrhaging voters from both sides of the aisle. Sure, our 401k is collapsing, and we’re paying $5 a gallon at the pump, but at least Biden and the Democrats will see a resounding defeat in November.
