AS SUMMER finally arrives after a winter that seemingly would never end ('cause once again, global warming is a totally real thing that can be fixed with higher taxes), people are starting to hit the road....
...Which usually drives up prices on gas. Normally not such a big deal, but seeing as gas prices had already more than doubled in the 15 months since Joe Biden took the center chair, any increases are going to hit hard:
"The national average price for both a gallon of regular gas and diesel broke all-time records Tuesday – two months after gas prices shattered records on five consecutive days.
The national average price for a gallon of regular gas has now registered at a record-high $4.37, while diesel fuel averaged at $5.55 – also an all-time high, the American Automobile Association (AAA) reported."
Today Joe blamed literally everyone not named Joe for inflation and higher prices - Vlad, the 'rona, ultra-maga (whatever the hell that is), it's everyone's fault but the guy in charge.
Which is a dog that won't hunt, a fact that dems seems awfully slow to acknowledge.
Well, fortunately, rising fuel prices have no impact whatsoever on industries that rely on fuel to operate! So we can expect no increases in the cost to transport anything by truck, train, ship, or plane. I'm sure you'll join me in a sigh of relief knowing that these momentary (and slight!) increases in fuel costs across the board will only affect all those "rich guys", while mom and pop back home are safe and secure and will have nothing but full shelves and stable prices from here on out!
"Gas prices in President Joe Biden’s America hit another record high on Friday as the Biden administration continues its assault on American energy independence.
The national gas price average rose yet again on Friday after reaching new highs over the course of the week.
On Friday, the average for regular gas reached $4.432, up from the record of $4.418 that the U.S. hit on Thursday. The national average for mid-grade is $4.794, and the average for premium is $5.072. Diesel also hit a new high on Friday, standing at $5.560.
The average price is well over $5.00 for regular gas in states such as California and Nevada.
All the while, the Biden administration has continued its assault on American energy independence, which started on day one with the cancelation of the Keystone XL Pipeline.
Then this week, a spokesperson for the Interior Department confirmed that the Biden administration canceled gas lease sales in Alaska and the Gulf of New Mexico."
I'm starting to get this crazy idea that Biden doesn't know what the hell he's doing.
