Under Donald Trump, the United States was energy independent and gas prices were low. Under Joe Biden for barely three months, we are already experiencing a gas crisis throughout the southeast.
Gas prices are also rising. In Virginia, one station is reportedly charging $7 a gallon.
None of this has to happen. They are allowing it to happen.
FOX Business reports:
Virginia gas station raises gas prices to $7 per gallon: report
Gas shortages across the East Coast have led to long lines and panic buying. One business appears to have taken advantage of the situation by price gouging some of its customers, according to reports.
A BP in Richmond, Va., was charging customers $6.99 per gallon, WRIC reported Wednesday. According to photos of the gas station posted on Twitter, the price was only listed at the pump and not advertised on the sign.
Though prices have risen because of the gas shortages, $6.99 per gallon is an exorbitant increase.
The average price for regular gas in the Richmond-Petersburg area on Friday was $2.938 per gallon, up slightly from Thursday’s average price of $2.914 per gallon, according to data from AAA.
This is all on the Biden administration.
$6.99/gallon. That’s how much the @bp_plc gas station at Williamsburg Rd & Parker St is charging for 87 octane fuel. The price isn’t being advertised until you get to the pump. Some drivers are leaving- saying it’s price gouging. Others are filling up anyways. @8NEWS pic.twitter.com/uiBawLTl63

If you live in Georgia and gas prices are high or there is no gas, thank @BrianKempGA for helping @staceyabrams, @JoeBiden @SenatorWarnock & @ossoff steal the election. #Missing45! pic.twitter.com/RcAzDb6rq9

Joe Biden cancelled Keystone XL and is waging a war on American energy.
Is anyone surprised gas prices have skyrocketed on his watch?

This is all self-imposed. We had low gas prices less than a year ago.
