That damn Vladimir Putin! If it weren’t for him, I wouldn’t have paid $4.57 per gallon of gas yesterday at a northern Virginia gas station — or so I’m told. Let’s cut the crap, folks. The Biden regime has been one of the worst entities to affect the average American’s wallet, at least in terms of gas…well, ever. How do we know that to be true? Well, when you set records every single day for gas prices, yeah, it might be his regime.

After Biden said he would do everything he could to lower gas prices — which came in the form of gas going down a few cents over a few weeks — all that “progress” is but a distant memory if you look at recent prices and trends.

One month ago today, the national average price for a gallon of gas dipped below a previous all-time high when it settled at $4.098/gal., according to AAA. Fast forward to today and that price has surged to a whopping $4.418/gal., a full 32 cents higher.

The state with the highest average price for a gallon of gas is, of course, California, currently sitting at $5.853/gal. But the day is young, so that price will most likely increase a few cents before the average Californian drives home from work.

The lowest average price in the nation goes to the state of Georgia, with their price currently averaging $3.945/gal.

But that’s nothing compared to the pain truckers and anyone else who uses diesel fuel to get around is feeling.

The current national average for a gallon of diesel is $5.557. Compare that to just a month ago and you’d see the price has gone up nearly 53 cents. And one year ago? Well, the cost of a gallon of diesel would’ve cost you just $3.136 — still high, but bearable compared to the current price.

Our U.S. government is doing nothing about it, either. They can talk about who to blame it on, or how they’re going to try and do something about it. But one doesn’t have to be able to connect too many dots to figure out that it seems like things are going in this direction to line the pockets of the politician’s friends who work in the “green” sector.
