Gas prices have been rising dramatically for months and have now hit a new milestone.
The national average price of a gallon of gas is now five dollars.
Democrats continue to insist that this isn’t Biden’s fault but the problem began to manifest the moment he became president and has only gotten worse on his watch.
Breitbart News reports:
Gas Prices Soar to National Average of $5 per Gallon
Gas prices on Thursday soared to a national average of $5.00 per gallon, according to GasBuddy.
The $5.00 per gallon mark has never been reached before and represents a twelve consecutive record-day high.
In all 50 states on Thursday, the average price of a gallon of gas reached above $4.40, according to AAA data.
In California, gas prices on Thursday reached $6.40 per gallon. JPMorgan commodities analyst predicted gas prices may increase to more than $6.00 per gallon before Labor Day.
Gas prices have more than doubled since former President Donald Trump left office.
Trump had warned voters that if Biden won the 2020 election, the price of gas would reach at least $7.00 per gallon. “If Biden got in, you’d be paying $7, $8, $9. Then they’d say ‘get rid of your car!’”
This is causing real pain for all Americans.

Gas has officially passed $5 a gallon, an all time high that acts as a default tax on the poorest Americans, and prices show no signs of coming down any time soon. Joe Biden is the worst president in modern American history, maybe ever.

The Washington Post in November 2020 wrote: "Conservatives predict gas prices will spike under Biden. Experts say those fears are overblown."
The Post then mocked the idea of $5 per gallon gas.

Democrats can make any excuses they want but the American people are going to hold them and Biden responsible.
November is coming.
