Nat'l Avg. for Gallon of Gas Nearing All-Time High, Jumps 23-Cents Over Weekend

The days of looking for cheap gas, at least for now, is over. In just a five-day span, my local gas station’s price for a gallon of regular gas went from $3.77 to $3.81 to $3.91 to $3.99 to $4.11, ending up at $4.31/gal. on day five.

The national average for a gallon of gas has skyrocketed in much the same fashion.

From Friday morning to Monday morning, the national average went from $3.837 to $4.065, according to AAA. For those that appreciate quick math, that’s a 23-cent increase in a single weekend.

In my social media travels, many — like yours truly — noted how the price for a gallon of gas shot up 20 to 30 cents in a single day. That isn’t sustainable for the everyday American.

WHNT reported that the “all-time high” national average is $4.103/gal. That’s not far off from where the average currently sits. Heck, by tomorrow morning, we could see that all-time high eclipsed.

AAA’s charts point out the current average compared to averages in the days, weeks, months and year prior.

As you can see above, the $4.065 current national average is nearly six cents higher than the day before, 45-cents higher than last week, 62-cents higher than a month ago and nearly $1.30 higher than at the same point in 2021.

If only there were ways the Biden regime could cut the pain at the pump for Americans. Oh wait, there is! But they have no plans on approving the Keystone XL pipeline or simply increasing oil production on the domestic oil we currently use in the U.S.

Instead, they look to extremist governments — like Iran and Venezuela — to offset the Russian oil we’re no longer importing because of the current conflict between their country and Ukraine.

Forget energy independence, at least for the next couple years.
