Nationwide gas prices have continued to skyrocket under President Joe Biden’s administration. According to the auto club AAA, The average gallon of gas now costs at least $4 in all 50 states, the first time in United States History. Oklahoma, Kansas, and Georgia were the only state where gas hadn’t crossed $4 a gallon on Monday, but jumped over $4 on Tuesday.
“Kansas still has the cheapest gas in the nation at $4.006 a gallon, while California has the priciest at $6.021 a gallon,” Fox News reported.
“According to JPMorgan, prices could surge another 37% by August, hitting a $6.20 per gallon national average. This is due to ‘expectations of strong driving demand’ throughout the summer driving season, which spans from Memorial Day and lasts until Labor Day, the analysts, led by Natasha Kaneva, the head of JPMorgan’s global commodities strategy team, wrote,” according to Fox Business.
In March, President Joe Biden appeared to not care about gas prices hours after promising to bring them down, saying during a speech at the White House, “Can’t do much right now. Russia is responsible.”
When reporters questioned Biden on his message to Americans suffering from the high gas prices, Biden answered, “They’re going to go up.”
“I’m going to do everything I can to minimize Putin’s price hike here at home,” Biden said.
“Loosening environmental regulations or pulling back clean energy investment won’t — let me explain — won’t — will not lower energy prices for families,” Biden explained.
“This is the goal we should be racing toward,” he said.
“I’m not going to give you a nod or a wink to any specifics,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki said when asked for details of the president’s gas plan.
“There are a range of options on the table,” Psaki added.
“Biden has not announced any significant changes to his existing energy policies to lower gas prices in the wake of Russia escalating their war in Ukraine. The president continues to point to significant releases of the American Strategic Petroleum Reserves, but his efforts have done little to reduce the cost of gas,” Breitbart reports.
