Remember when this happened less than a month ago?
Move aside, $4 gas, because $5 gas is here and $6 gas is just a few weeks away!
Look at this new chart updated on Tuesday:
People who don't understand economics think gas stations are making bank on this price increase.
Gas stations make pennies (like literally several pennies) on each gallon sold. There's a reason most of them can't afford time or manpower to clean those bathrooms.
No, my woke friends, this has absolutely everything to do with government corruption and market principles.
You want Big Oil to stop raking in insane amounts of dough? Stop artificially constricting the market and killing competition by starving the American energy industry. That's entirely on Biden.
Don't want corrupt oil execs in Saudi Arabia shipping boatloads of hazardous oil over open ocean? Put the companies in North Dakota, Texas, and Alaska to work.
Want a supply chain that works? Tell the dunderheads who locked everything down for two years and pit Americans against each other in a vain attempt to stop Covid that they can no longer do such things.
Want to be able to afford energy? Kick out the politicians who are pandering to the climate cult because they think we're all gonna die if they don't force us to buy $50,000 electric vehicles right this instant.
And I quote:
"[When] it comes to the gas prices," Biden said in Japan last month as prices were climbing daily, "we're going through an incredible transition that is taking place."
"God willing," the president added, "when it's over, we'll be stronger and the world will be stronger and less reliant on fossil fuels."
While you're at it, tell the Fed to give those money printers a break and vote all the politicians out who keep spending trillions of your dollars without consequence!
