National average gas price per gallon continues slow drop

Sky-high gas prices have taken a toll on the bank accounts of millions of Americans, all while the Biden administration seemingly looks the other way.

However, according to the Washington Examiner, while prices still remain at record levels, there has been some measurable level of relief over the past few weeks, as the national average price per gallon of gas has dropped to $4.51, down from a record-high of over $5 per gallon last month.

The Examiner noted: “AAA Mid-Atlantic says the average price of a gallon of regular gas in New Jersey on Friday was $4.51, down 12 cents from last week. Drivers were paying $3.17 a gallon on average a year ago at this time.”

While the Biden administration spent the last several months blaming Vladimir Putin — and many other people/things — for the increased gas prices, it was quick to tout the recent drop in price, a move for which they were brutally mocked on social media.

Unfortunately for the Biden administration, even if they could claim credit, it would seem to be too late, as Republican pollster Ed Goeas thinks voters will still firmly be casting their votes based on the country’s economic health.

“We’ve now passed that point, and so the economy is going to continue to be the No. 1 issue through the election, and that’s not where the progressives necessarily want him talking,” Goeas said.

He added: “But quite frankly, if they don’t all get on that issue more, the Democrats are going to be in deep trouble in the 2022 election.”

Dems will need nothing short of a total miracle to stand even a remote chance at victory in the upcoming November midterms.
