REPORT: The Biden White House Is Quietly Sweating The Huge Increase In Gas Prices

The Biden White House may not come right out and say it, but they are actually very concerned about the rising price of gas.

Not because it’s hurting the American people, but because they know it has the potential to politically destroy Democrats in 2022 and 2024.

Gas prices affect everyone, regardless of their political background and Democrats know this.

Politico reports:

The White House has one problem that rules them all: Gas prices

For the past several months, a White House-led team of economic specialists has marked each day in the same way: With a painstaking, state-by-state examination of gasoline prices and the intricate market forces pushing them relentlessly upward.

Senior officials and others close to President Joe Biden view those prices as the cost that most directly affects voters’ everyday lives, and therefore their perception of the economy as well. As such, Biden and his top advisers fixate on them with an intensity that some aides describe as obsessive. White House chief of staff Ron Klain has grown particularly absorbed by the issue, checking the average price of a gallon of gas every morning. He’s lamented that it’s the one item everyone knows the cost of because gas station billboards are so ubiquitous throughout the country.

“Could they advertise anything else?” Klain rhetorically, and ruefully, asked one recent visitor.

The White House’s focus on gas prices is bred from two sobering political conclusions top officials have made. The first is that they have little control over the problem. The second is that as prices rise at the pump, so do Democrats’ odds of a midterm wipeout — especially as the average U.S. gallon of gas hits fresh record highs.
