The average cost of a gallon of gas has risen to $5 in San Diego and the national average has risen to $3.72.
The price of gas has risen to the highest mark in nine years as Americans are feeling the pain at the pump across the country. The statewide average in California is $5.07 as Biden’s war on fossil fuels has led to continued uptick in price at the pump.
Left-wing media have claimed that inflation and international stress from the war on Ukraine have been the only driving factors causing the increase of the price of oil. Joe Biden has vowed that he will work to lower the price of gas, but suggested that Americans purchase an electric car to save money.
The solution to have widespread electric car availability has many issues itself. There is a low inventory of all types of vehicles and electric vehicles are not widely available across the country. Additionally, electric vehicles are not feasible from a cost perspective for many Americans.
Biden has failed to mention his initiative to shut down the Keystone XL pipeline. This handcuffed the country’s ability to produce oil domestically. American industries have been forced to buy international oil in order to stay afloat in their daily operations.
