Math. It’s just the latest thing the Biden administration is attempting to pervert.
While being questioned about rising gas prices under Joe Biden, White House Spokesman Karine Jean-Pierre performed some mental gymnastics with mathematics.

“Every month, the typical two-driver family saves about $120 at the pump compared to where we were in mid-June. Everyday Americans — Americans saved about $420 million at the pump compared to mid-June,”
Uh-huh. Americans are just reeling in those savings at the gas pump.
As the New York Post has pointed out:
While the price of gasoline has fallen from a nationwide average of $5.01 per gallon on June 14 to $3.85 per gallon as of Wednesday, according to AAA, Americans are still feeling pain at the pump compared to when Biden took office — when the price of a gallon of gas averaged $2.37.
The Twitterverse noticed.

GorT: Saying this stupid shit and waiving away Doocy's questions pressing on the increases being a loss for Americans highlights the idiocy in this administration. You can't have it both ways, KJP. If we're saving that much, then the Biden-Harris administration COST us millions https://t.co/cM975MkjFu— The Gormogons (@Gormogons) October 19, 2022
