The average price of a gallon of gas nationwide exceeded $5 on Thursday, crossing the milestone after a rapid rise over the past month that has alarmed public officials and strained the budgets of everyday Americans as Build Back Better rages on.

Welcome to Day 815 of 15 Days To Flatten the Curve, gas prices are the highest in American history and climbing daily, food shortages are increasing, children under the age of 5-years old are being force-fed the COVID vaccine, and inflation is looking like it may be giving way to recession. Welcome to Joe Biden’s America, what Keystone Pipeline?
“Now therefore be ye not mockers, lest your bands be made strong: for I have heard from the Lord GOD of hosts a consumption, even determined upon the whole earth.” Isaiah 28:22 (KJB)
Did you notice that right after Congress authorized $53 billion for Ukraine “aid” that no one is even talking about Ukraine and Russia anymore? That was fast. Did you notice that Apple is now joining the global bankers in the financial services industry? I wonder why that would be. COVID rates in Florida are up 500%, but nary a peep on the evening news, how come? This is what the Great Reset is all about, this is how you Build Back Better, by first leveling the existing system in order to bring in the new one. I drive a Jeep Wrangler that now costs $99.75 to fill up with regular gas, in 2020 it cost $38.50. How much higher can all this go? Until it breaks. Welcome to Build Back Better.
Gas prices hit $5 national average after rapid rise
FROM ABC NEWS: In all 50 states, the average price of a gallon of gas stood above $4.40, but costs ranged considerably across different regions, as drivers in the West and Northeast suffered the highest prices and drivers in the Southeast saw the lowest, AAA data showed.
In California, the state with the highest gas prices, drivers paid an eye-popping average of $6.40 per gallon, AAA data showed.
The rising prices owe to a summer travel boom that has brought more people to the pump, experts told ABC News late last month. The spike in demand coincides with a shortage of crude oil supply amid the Russian invasion of Ukraine, which prompted a widespread industry exit from Russia that pushed millions of barrels of oil off the market, the experts said.
As consumer frustration has mounted in recent months, President Joe Biden has faced criticism over his handling of cost increases in essentials like fuel and groceries. Only 37% of Americans approve of Biden’s handling of the economic recovery, according to an ABC/Ipsos poll released on Sunday. Republican leaders in Congress have faulted Biden’s management of the U.S. oil supply for high gas prices, blasting his choice to shut down the Keystone XL pipeline last year.
As of last week, Biden was leaning toward a trip to Saudi Arabia, the world’s top oil exporter, which may offer some hope of relief for U.S. gas buyers.
In March, the U.S. and its allies announced the collective release of 60 million barrels of oil from their strategic reserves over the following months, which sought to alleviate some of the supply shortage and blunt price increases.
Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg on Sunday told “This Week” anchor George Stephanopoulos that inflation is Biden’s “top economic priority.” Stephanopoulos on Sunday asked Buttigieg about the release of oil from the strategic reserves, saying it “hasn’t made any difference at all.” Stephanopoulos asked, “Was that a failure?”
