Folks, there are a lot of morons out there. You’ll write a story on how the national average price of gas goes up 13 cents in a week, and they’ll try and come back at you with, ‘Yeah, but it’s down 50 cents to a dollar from last year.’ The problem with that is their memory must be trash, because it’s still over a dollar and a half higher than it was when President Joe Biden took office.

Well, that same national average just keeps going up.

Compared to a month ago, the national average price of a gallon of regular gas has gone up a little over 30 cents, according to AAA. One month ago, the price sat at $3.529/gal, while it currently sits $3.831/gal.


And for those that like to chew their tongues while they talk and play the “It’s Still Lower Than It  Was Last Year” game, the average price of a gallon of regular gas was $2.168/gal. in 2020, before the current regime took over, according to statistics from the U.S. Energy Information Administration.

Just one year later, in 2021, that average jumped to $3.008/gal. and all the way to $3.951/gal. in 2022.

That’s almost a two dollar increase in two years. However, that doesn’t come close to the all-time high for the national average price of gas, which was achieved by the Biden regime on June 14, 2022, where it reached $5.016/gal.

For those playing the home game, that’s almost a three dollar increase just a year-and-a-half into Biden’s presidency. At least he can legitimately say that he holds that record.
