Gas station website, GasBuddy, has pinned United States gas prices at a new, all-time record high this week.
The nationwide average price of gas per gallon has jumped up to $4.10, a price that is almost double what Americans paid when Donald Trump was president.
The record prices are also encouraged by the largest one-week rise in U. S. history.
Gasbuddy showed that in the past week gas prices rose by a whopping 49.1 cents per gallon.
This crushed the last weekly record in 2005 caused by Hurricane Katrina.
“Americans have never seen gas prices go this high, and we have not seen increases with such a fast and furious pace,” said Patrick De Haan, GasBuddy’s head of petroleum analysis.
“That combination makes this situation all the more intense and remarkable, with damaging sanctions on Russia controlling their flow of oil, leading to the huge spike in the cost of all fuels: diesel, jet fuel, gasoline, and more.”
“It is a dire situation and won’t get better any time soon. The high prices will probably stick around for months instead of days or weeks, like they did in 2008,” he continued.
Is Joe Biden the reason for skyrocketing gas prices?
“GasBuddy is now expecting the yearly U. S. average to increase to the highest ever recorded,” De Haan concluded, which is devastating news for working Americans.
Prices of almost $2.00 per gallon were commonplace during Trump’s administration, during which American natural gas production was accelerated and permitted.
The White House is wanting to negotiate with oil-funded dictatorships Venezuela and Saudi Arabia to supply the gas for American energy needs.
There is little indication that Joe Biden plans to increase the production of American gas, with extremist ideologues in his administration citing carbon pollution.
It is not clear how importing natural gas from Saudi Arabia and Venezuela is any better for the environment than the production of domestic natural gas.
Soaring gas prices are kind of like a regressive tax on the working and middle class people in America, who more than likely live in sparsely populated rural regions and have to drive to work.
The prices are combined with high inflation, which is amounting to a dual pincer that is destroying the savings of Americans while making them pay more for every day necessities.
Biden Transportation Sec. Pete Buttigieg has simply directed the avg. American to buy an electric vehicle — at the avg. price of $55,000 — rather than paying to fill up their gas tank.
