Joe Biden has been a colossal disaster for the country.
His incompetent regime isn’t slowing down its destruction.
And he’s panicking after he got this horrifying statistic.
Joe Biden was portrayed by the corporate-controlled media as a moderate.
He’s thrown his lot in with the socialist Left running the Democrat Party.
Biden declared war on American energy, shutting down pipelines, stopping oil drilling permits, and threatening oil companies with crippling regulations.
Now, the country is paying the price for his failed policies.
Gas prices are skyrocketing across the country as the price of oil hit its highest level since 2013.
The Russian invasion of Ukraine caused by Biden’s weakness is only adding to the pain.
As of Friday, the national average was $3.84 a gallon, which is up more than a dollar from this time last year according to AAA.
The situation is so bad that even the corporate-controlled media can’t keep a lid on it.
CBS News had a shocking report that gas prices are likely on their way to $5 a gallon in some places.
Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis at GasBuddy, said that gas prices in major cities were headed to $5 a gallon “in the next couple of weeks.”
San Francisco recently hit $5 a gallon and other cities in California could be joining it shortly.
De Haan said for “first time ever a US city has breached the $5/gal per gallon average.”
One town in California has already seen prices hit nearly $8 a gallon.
He predicted the national average would be $4 a gallon by the end of the March.
The way things are going, prices could hit that mark much sooner.
With states switching to more expensive “environmentally friendly” summer blends of gas and driving increasing as summer rolls around, this problem isn’t going away.
Some experts have predicted that the national average could be $5 a gallon by the start of summer.
The Ukrainian-Russian conflict looms large as Russia is the second largest oil exporter in the world.
Any disruptions to Russian oil could shock the system.
This is a massive political problem for Biden that he inflicted on himself.
Consumers are outraged at the pain at the pumps they’ve experienced under him and polls show most of them blame him for it.
But instead of reversing course and unleashing American energy, he’s clinging to his failed policies.
He’s blaming oil companies for “price gouging” and begging OPEC to increase production.
None of these gimmicks are going to change anything.
Biden refuses to do the one thing that would solve the problem and Democrats in this year’s midterm elections will pay the price.
Democrats are so panicked over the political fallout from gas prices that vulnerable Senate Democrats have floated the idea of suspending the federal gas tax.
The gas tax would conveniently return right after Election Day.
With gas prices likely to keep climbing, drivers won’t be able to count on any relief until Joe Biden is out of office.
