Now that lockdown restrictions are easing and summer is coming, more Americans are eager to get out in their cars and drive.
This was never a concern under President Trump, where gas prices were stable and low.
Under Joe Biden, they’re soaring.
As the coronavirus pandemic ends and the summer travel season begins, consumers face gas prices surging past $3 a gallon for regular unleaded. Experts say high demand from people eager to get on the road again and oil production increases cause the highest gas prices since 2014.
According to AAA, the current average price is $3.045 a gallon for regular unleaded nationwide. That national average is up 14.3 cents per gallon from a week ago and $1.06 higher than a year ago.Breitbart News
That’s an extra $1 per gallon you’re paying to drive your car thanks to the Biden Administration.
They don’t particularly like America’s energy independence, or the fact that people were getting gas cheaper than they were before.
In some places, gas prices are even higher than $3 a gallon.
As Breitbart News reported, in California gas prices at several fuel outlets are much higher with one gas station selling fuel for $6 a gallon:
The Mobil station across from the Beverly Center shopping mall, near Beverly Hills and West Hollywood, was selling regular unleaded gasoline for $5.29 and 9/10 per gallon on Monday evening, and “Super Plus” for $5.99 and 9/10 — self serve, without assistance or a car wash.
Those prices were unusually high, even for Los Angeles, where many stations charged between $4 and $5 per gallon over the holiday weekend, and the average is currently about $4.22 per gallon, according to GasBuddy.com.Breitbart News
It’s no surprise that Democrat-run California’s prices are among the highest in the country.
Wherever Democrats are in charge, everything gets more expensive thanks to higher taxes and socialist economic policies.
Even the average price for California is higher than it’s ever been.
Genuinely conservative Republicans could get these numbers down, just like Trump did.
But Joe Biden, his Administration, and the Democrats are perfectly content to see prices soar.
That tells you everything you need to know about their attitude to the American people.
