With no end in sight, American’s are suffering gasoline prices that have reached, on average, a seven-year high.
On Wednesday, the Epoch Times reported the average price for gasoline went from 3.389 to $3.394. Compare this to last month’s average price of $3.189.
AAA spokesman Andrew Gross commented on the rapid rise in gas prices saying, “With the U.S. economy slowly recovering from the depths of the pandemic, demand for gas is robust, but the supply is tight. He went on to say, “We haven’t seen prices this high since September of 2014.”
Some parts of the nation are feeling price increases more than others. For example, California’s average price per gallon is $4.56. In Nevada, it’s $3.93. Hawaii stands at $4.29.
In San Fransisco, arguably one of the nation’s most liberal cities, it now costs $4.73 for a gallon of gas. This, according to petroleum analyst Patrick De Haan, is just 1.2 cents away from being a record for the city.
San Francisco’s #gasprices are just 1.2 cents from a new all-time record high. It will be the first city to set a new record high for #gasprices since 2012. It could happen yet today.

The Biden Administration has admitted that they have no plan to help curb the increasing cost of gasoline. When questioned about the sition, Jen Psaki said, “There are limitations to what any president can do, as it relates to gas prices.”
