Gas prices have been at all-time record highs since April.
The price of a gallon of regular gas reached $5.11 a gallon in June and currently stands at $4.35 a gallon.
This is more than 20 cents higher than any during any other presidency in US history.
On Monday Joe Biden bragged about US gas prices that are still at $4.35 a gallon.
As Senator Ron Johnson pointed out, this is nothing to brag about!

The Hill reported:
President Biden touted falling gas prices in a series of tweets over the weekend as the national average for a gallon of gas fell below $4.50.
The national average for a gallon of gas is now $4.36, according to the transportation organization American Automobile Association (AAA), down from a high of $5 a gallon last month.
Biden, who is struggling with slumping approval ratings, tweeted first on Friday that gas prices fell 60 cents over the past 38 days, marking the fifth straight week of decline.
He followed that up with a tweet on Sunday, noting it was now 65 cents over 40 days.
“I grew up in a family where if the price of gas went up, we felt it,” the president tweeted on his personal account. “Gas prices have dropped since mid-June and should continue to come down in the days and weeks ahead. I know those extra dollars and cents mean something.”
Just last week Biden’s Secretary of Energy cheered the energy prices and the destruction of the US middle class.
