In the last week, the price of gas has dropped by two cents, perhaps because Biden released part of the nation’s oil reserve.
A change of two cents doesn’t make a difference for most Americans but Democrats think you should be thankful for this.
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee even put out an official tweet about it.
Democrats Are Actually Expecting You to Thank Joe Biden for Gas Prices Right Now
It seems like it should have been sent out on April 1 rather than December 2, but the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) on Thursday tweeted a graph showing that gas prices had gone down by 2 cents, with the caption of “Thanks, @JoeBiden.”
Gas prices are particularly high as of late, and have hit record-high levels in California during Biden’s presidency, with the president having been in office for less than a year. As Matt Egan reported for CNN last Wednesday, “Thanksgiving gas prices are the highest since 2012.”

Wow. Two whole cents. Thanks, Joe!
People have thoughts.
Can I get the play-by-play on who on your staff thought this was a good idea? The graphics guy who made it? The comms guy who thinks two cents is something to high-five over? Whoever approved and then tweeted it? Truly amazing stuff.

“High gas prices aren’t our fault.. but please give us credit for the 2 CENT DROP.”
Incredible messaging here. https://t.co/wn3nAHXZIh

16 cents on July 4, 2 cents a gallon on gas
Have you saved enough for the tesla you're supposed to buy yet? https://t.co/W8PVXbvQ7A

2 cents saved on gas is the absolute perfect sequel to 16 cents saved on hot dogs. What a time to be alive. https://t.co/mxd0Iv3gfd

How are you going to spend your extra two cents?
