Conservative Group Reveals How Biden Hurts Us At The Pump

Under Joe Biden, inflation has crushed ordinary families as he’s focused on the “green” pet projects put in front of him by his liberal staff. 

Nowhere has Biden’s economic plan hurt Americans more than at the pump. In 2022, the administration claimed that high gas prices was the cost of having liberal order.”

Fox Business recently discussed one clever way that a conservative group is reminding Americans how disastrous “Bidenomics” has been for filling up our gas tanks. 

On Monday, Americans for Prosperity (AFP) will host the first of a series of events that will roll back gas prices from coast to coast “to get a pre-Bidenomics break at the pump.” More than 20 gas stations will participate throughout this week, temporarily reducing prices to as low as $2.38 per gallon – near the average price per gallon of gas on the day President Biden assumed office.

“Biden’s war on American energy has had disastrous results and Americans are reeling from high gas prices going into the summer,” said Akash Chougule, AFP vice president of government affairs.

“From shutting down the Keystone Pipeline to banning energy leases on federal land, Joe Biden’s top-down policies have stifled our country’s energy resources and made even the things like a family road trip more expensive,” Chougule said in a statement. “This week, we are spotlighting what gas prices could be with policies that unleash our country’s energy potential.”

The first AFP gas rollback event kicked off Monday at 11 a.m. at the Sunoco station at 7701 Penn Avenue in Pittsburgh, and the events will continue through May 29, closing at a gas station in Oregon located at 13488 SE Hwy 212. AFP expects at least 4,000 drivers to line up at gas stations this week to fill up their tanks at a bargain price.

When Biden assumed office in January 2021, gas prices averaged $2.42 per gallon. They then surged alongside rising oil prices, reaching a peak of $5 per gallon in June 2022. Throughout Biden’s presidency so far, the average gas price has been $3.61 per gallon. This is 40% higher than the average during Trump’s entire term and 35% higher if the COVID-19 period is excluded.

Even when adjusting for inflation, gas prices have been significantly higher under Biden. The inflation-adjusted average price during Trump’s term was $3.18 per gallon in 2024 dollars, compared to an average of $3.86 per gallon under Biden. This represents a 21% increase in gas prices under Biden, adjusted for inflation.
