Biden Does WHAT To Gas Prices?

( – In the United States, fuel costs are climbing once more, with gas prices more than doubling since President Biden assumed office, contrary to recent White House statements claiming reductions in daily expenses, including gas and milk prices. The latest figures from AAA show the national average for a gallon of gas at around $3.62, a significant increase from the $2.39 price point at the start of Biden’s presidency on January 20, 2021, marking over a 50% hike.

Despite the White House’s March 11 assertion that inflation has decreased substantially from its peak, with a decrease in the costs of common items like gas and milk, data from GasBuddy indicates a continuous rise in gas prices, with an approximate 25 cent increase per gallon since early March.

The White House had not provided an immediate comment on this development when approached by FOX Business.

In June 2022, gas prices reached a historic high, with the national average hitting $5 per gallon, the highest since AAA began recording this data in 2000. At that time, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre credited Biden’s policies with aiding the economic recovery and attributed the surge in gas prices primarily to Russian President Vladimir Putin’s actions, particularly his invasion of Ukraine, which she claimed caused a 60% rise in prices over several months.

President Biden, in a press conference during the same period, acknowledged that the American public is less concerned with the reasons behind the high gas prices and more focused on wanting them to decrease.
