We can’t say that we didn’t warn you about the possibility of gas prices rising under Joe Biden.
It was predicted by President Trump on his campaign trail.
It’s amazing what’s happened in the past few years, many great things and you only pay $2 per gallon for gasoline. He said, “That’s okay.” Do you know what that feels like? He pointed out that it’s similar to a tax cut. It’s more than a tax cut. You’d pay $7, $8, or $9 if Biden was elected. They’d then tell you to get rid of your car. ‘”
And boy, was he right. As gas prices hit historic highs, Democrats have been using that in a push for people to buy electric cars that are typically in the range of $60,000. Just this past week, Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.) bragged about how gas prices didn’t matter to her when she drove her car from her home state to Washington, D.C., because she has an electric car. “I just have to say just on the issue of that at gas prices, after waiting for a long time to have enough chips in this country to finally get my electric vehicle, I got it and drove it from Michigan to here this last weekend and went by every single gas station. It didn’t matter how high it was.”
What really bugs me about the current situation, however, is the fact that both the experts and mainstream media have dismissed the possibility that gas prices will rise under Biden.

According to the Washington Post, a dubious meme was spreading online among conservative circles. “The price of gasoline will rise because Joe Biden is in office,” they reported in November 2020. “The theory is the President-elect’s upcoming efforts to wean America off oil will wreak havoc on people’s pockets. Facebook’s conservative corners are filled with viral photos showing gas station signs at prices exceeding $5 per gallon. One image shows a reminder of how things looked when Biden was last in the White House.
On Friday, June 10, the national gas price average for regular gasoline was $4.986. Several states also have gas prices above $5.00 per gallon. The author refuted the notion that gas prices could rise to such levels under Biden. He said that although a president’s actions, including Biden’s climate policies, can lower the price of oil, it is only marginal, experts agree.
It seems that Trump was correct, and the experts were wrong.
