As prices began their steady climb from their national average of $2.39 a gallon on inauguration day to over $5 last month, the Biden administration responded with their documented spin of denying the problem existed, branding it transitory, claiming they have no control over it, blaming Vladimir Putin, and then blaming price gouging before begging stations to lower prices.
As gas prices have drifted from all-time-highs in the past few weeks and are now roughly $4.20 nationwide, a 76% increase since Biden office, the Biden administration has begun measuring gas prices from their peak to push the absurd narrative that they're lowering gas prices. The administration's chief propagandist Karine Jean-Pierre told reporters with a straight face yesterday that "More work remains, but the fact is that we are currently experiencing the fastest decline in gas prices in over a decade."
What she doesn't mention about the "fastest decline in over a decade" is that the Biden administration also presided over the fastest increase in gas prices in three decades.
This comes just one week after Biden economic adviser Jared Bernstein pitched $4.30 a gallon gas as a positive.
The administration is playing a "heads I win, tails you lose" game with gas prices, where all increases are out of their control, while all declines are thanks to them.
And we know what happened last time the White House bragged about a decline in gas prices like this.
Earlier in 2021 the White House celebrated that the cost of the average Fourth of July BBQ was down 16 cents from the year prior. The price of the typical Fourth of July BBQ increased by about $10 in 2022, wiping out the prior year's savings sixty-two and a half times over.
