Gas prices reached a NEW all-time record high on Monday — for the SEVENTH STRAIGHT DAY!
This did not make headlines in the major media today.
Can you even imagine if this would have happened when Trump was president? But, of course, it didn’t because President Trump’s policies lowered gas prices and helped every American.
The Denver Channel reported:
For the seventh consecutive day, gas prices hit a record high. According to AAA, the average for a gallon of regular gas reached an all-time high of $4.48 nationwide on Monday after increasing by 1 cent overnight, AAA said.
According to AAA, gas has increased 16 cents in the last week, 41 cents in the last month and $1.44 in the last year. This streak of records topped the nation’s previous record of $4.33 set back on March 11.
AAA notes that there is normally a lull in gas prices between spring break and Memorial Day, but the U.S. is not seeing that this year.
“The high cost of oil, the key ingredient in gasoline, is driving these high pump prices for consumers,” said Andrew Gross, AAA spokesperson. “Even the annual seasonal demand dip for gasoline during the lull between spring break and Memorial Day, which would normally help lower prices, is having no effect this year.”
Several states — California, Nevada, Washington and Hawaii — are averaging more than $5 per gallon. Meanwhile, three states — Georgia, Oklahoma and Kansas— still have average gas prices below $4 a gallon.
