Those lower gas prices — you know, the ones that were raised by the Biden regime just so they could claim they eventually lowered them — ended with Christmas, ironically, almost as if the regime could raise and lower the prices on a whim.

The national average price for a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline has jumped from the Christmas Eve price ($3.09/gal.) nearly 20 cents to the current price of $3.28/gal., according to AAA.

While AAA attributed the price hike to nationally colder temperatures over the last week or so, along with higher demand as a result of the holidays, they played both sides of the fence and couldn’t give a definitive answer as to whether the prices would continue to rise or lower again now that the deep freeze is over.

“As we head toward February, pump prices will likely dip, barring any jolt in the global oil market,” Andrew Gross, AAA spokesperson said. “But it is likely that the national average prices we saw heading in to Christmas may have been the lows for this winter.”

So the prices could lower, but the lower prices — which were still at least 80 cents higher than at the end of former President Donald Trump’s term in office — might’ve already been seen. That’s professional double speak for those playing the home game.
