According to data from AAA and Oil Price Information Service, the average price increased by 1.4 cents on Friday. It is 7.9cs higher than it was one week earlier, 20.8cs higher than one month ago, and $1.523 more than one year ago. Patrick De Haan, an analyst in the oil and refined products, posted on Thursday that California’s average gasoline prices were at all-time highs. He said they were “beating both 2012 and 2008 records”. $4.68/gal statewide average today.
Californians spoke out to CBS Los Angeles to discuss how the price rise has affected them.
Senator Tom Cotton (R, AR) has recently started to Breitbart News that he believes President Joe Biden and other Democrats deliberately cause gas prices to reach record highs in order to push their leftist environmental agenda against Americans.
Cotton stated, “Most importantly, more and more people tell me that they aren’t even able to fill up their pickup truck tank for the whole week.” They’ll need to fill half of a tank, and then hope the price drops by the end. This is the intended result of Joe Biden’s energy policy. It isn’t accidental or unintended. They want gas to be $4 per gallon. This is because they want us all to get out of our pickup trucks and SUVs to get into small electric compacts, bicycles, scooters, or whatever else Pete Buttigieg has in mind.
The White House stated Friday that rising gas prices meant the federal government must spend more on green energy.
Jen Psaki, White House Press Secretary, commented that “the rise in gas prices over the long-term makes it even more compelling to double down our investments and focus on clean energies options.”
