Folks, there’s no point in playing the blame game for the astronomical and record-setting gas prices. We know who’s at fault, and his name isn’t Vladimir Putin. Feeling the pain at the pump. Well, welcome to the new pandemic — stupid decisions that lead to pain in one form or another for ALL Americans.

The national average price for a single gallon of Regular gas currently sits, as of Thursday morning, at $4.589. That number is nearly 18 cents higher than a week ago and nearly 48 cents higher than a month ago, according to AAA.

That’s right. Gas for the average American has gone up almost 50 cents in a single month!

People have also been keeping their eyes on the price of Diesel gas, because the trucks that are the lifeblood of our economy and food supply run on that fuel.

Let’s put this in perspective, shall we?

One year ago, the average price of a single gallon of Diesel gas was $3.172, which is still high. Compare that to the price just a month ago and you’ll see the price skyrocketed to $5.044/gal. A week ago the price resided at $5.557/gal., while the price Thursday morning saw an increase to $5.577.

As for the country at large, California not only remains the state with the highest average gas prices, but they’re also the first to see their average reach over $6/gal. ($6.061).

The lowest average gas prices in the country is currently in the state of Kansas, where the price is $4.044/gal. on average.

There’s no end in sight to the rising prices, and the Biden regime seems all too happy to accommodate the rising prices by doing nothing about it.

I guess that’s what happens when you have a Green New Deal to push without ever having to pass legislation to implement it.
