Gas Prices Continue to Increase in Biden’s America

While the economy continues to suffer, one of the worst factors to date is gas prices. Unlike other things that Americans can possibly go without buying, gas is an absolute necessity.

Folks need to fill their tanks in order to be able to get to/from work, run errands, and otherwise transport themselves from point a to point b.

The Biden administration wants Americans to believe that gas prices today are nothing more than offshoots of Putin’s war in Ukraine. However, the timeline that shows the war starting well after the rise of US gas prices doesn’t support this argument.

Unfortunately, gas prices are continuing to get higher and higher.

The latest on gas prices in the United States

Over an 11-day timeframe, gas prices consistently rose to an average of $4.95 per gallon. In more than one-third of states across the union, the average cost of gas is around the $5.00 per gallon marker.

Future projections for the costs of gas in the United States aren’t looking good, either. By the time Labor Day arrives, the average price for gas could stand at about $6.00 per gallon.

This would mark a nearly triple increase of the $2.41 per gallon average that gas cost before Biden came into office.

The Biden administration’s response

Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen argues the current administration has been working hard to lower gas costs. However, Yellen has yet to acknowledge the role that Biden’s energy policies play in current gas prices.

The president is still blocking Keystone XL pipeline; he’s also still interfering with oil drilling, along with oil and gas leases. Allowing these measures to resume would increase the supply of US oil, therefore lowering prices.

However, this is not something the White House is willing to do. As it turns out, this administration cares more about its own climate change plans than about providing relief to Americans who desperately need it.

The current prices of gas remain set to play a huge role in the midterm elections. As it turns out, paying an arm and a leg for gas doesn’t appeal to all that many people across the nation.
