(ReclaimingAmerica.net) – Happening Now: With the price of a gallon of gasoline reaching new all-time highs, President Joe Biden is coming under fire for having promised the American people that he would lower the cost.
Today, just as Biden prepares to deliver an address to the nation about “his plan to fight inflation,” the average price of gasoline in the United States skyrocketed to a new record.
According to data released by AAA today, the average nationwide price at the pump rose to $4.37 per gallon, the highest level since March, while the average price of diesel fuel hit a record $5.56 a gallon.
Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis at research firm GasBuddy, said today, “There’s little, if any, good news about fuel prices heading into summer, and the problem could become worse should we see an above-average hurricane season, which could knock out refinery capacity at a time we badly need it as refined product inventories continue to plummet.”
As for Biden’s promise to the American people, the Daily Caller recounts:
“In February, Biden said he would ‘work like the devil’ to bring prices down and, in March, he promised gasoline would decline between 10-35 cents per gallon after he announced a historic release of U.S. emergency oil stocks. The president ordered a 50-million-barrel Strategic Petroleum Reserve release in November, a 30-million-barrel release on March 1, and a 180-million-barrel release on March 31 to combat rising gasoline prices.”
The American people will now decide if Biden delivered on his promise.
