Remember $2.00 a gallon gas? Yeah, good times there…
For the first time in the history of the United States, gas prices have risen above $4.00 in all 50 states, a truly amazing feat. This wouldn’t have been possible without the help of inflation, the current administration going hard against “big oil,” and soaring inflation as we print money like there’s literally no tomorrow. According to AAA, the average price of a gallon of gas across the nation is $4.52.
Don’t fall for the car scams like this guy did here.
Not shockingly, the land of taxes, otherwise known as California, boasts the highest average price for gas at $6.02 a gallon. Until Monday, three states were holdouts, staying below an average of $4 a gallon. But then Georgia, Kansas, and Oklahoma joined the rest of us in emptying out their wallets at the pump. Some analysts are projecting gas will be an average of $5 a gallon by July 4, just in time to celebrate our freedom.
Some think they can just buy an electric car and escape the skyrocketing price of gas and diesel. These geniuses don’t realize the cost of fuel impacts the whole economy. How do they think all those things they buy at the store get there? How do they think the workers who are remodeling their house get themselves and all the building materials onsite? Skyrocketing gas and diesel prices help drive further inflation, so things are poised to get even worse.
But don’t worry, all this isn’t the fault of the current administration. It’s really the fault of everyone and everything else. While there are obvious culprits, the fact government regulation with ever-increasing safety standards have made cars heavier than ever sure isn’t helping with the situation. Nor is the fact people are hauling around more extra cargo weight than ever.
