Certainly you have noticed by now that it is showing off if you can fill your car up the whole way… just really clip in and let that fucker pump… woooo, you are killing it.
The price of regular gasoline broke $4 per gallon on average across the U.S. on Sunday for the first time since 2008.
The media is going to tell you that it is because of Russia invading Ukraine but that is total bullshit as the price of gas has been on the rise since we change Presidents.
The facts here are that, during the first full week of Russia’s invasion, the price of regular gas rose by almost 41 cents, according to the AAA motor club.
Since it was right around $1.15 nationally when Biden took office, that 0.41 would still have the total number under $2, if it had not already raised over $2 per gallon in just seven months.
The jump that did occur was the second largest jump in average national prices in a week, according to GasBuddy.
“As Russia’s war on Ukraine continues to evolve and we head into a season where gas prices typically increase, Americans should prepare to pay more for gas than they ever have before,” Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy, said in a statement.
The all-time high for average gasoline prices was set in July 17, 2008 at $4.10 per gallon.
On Sunday, California had the highest average price per gallon among U.S. states at $5.29, while Missouri had the lowest at around $3.60.
