Historic Gas Prices This Labor Day Weekend

Historic Gas Prices This Labor Day Weekend

August 31, 2023

Families traveling this weekend will be met with sticker shock at the pump. Drivers will face historically high gas prices over the holiday weekend.

CNN reports, 

“The record-high for gas prices during the week leading up to Labor Day was set in 2012 at $3.84 a gallon, according to a CNN review of federal data that goes back to 1990.

Current prices are just shy of that. The national average for regular gas is $3.83 a gallon as of Thursday, according to AAA.”

Most of the time, gas prices tend to cool down as the summer ends, but thanks to President Biden’s war on fossil fuels this year, they are higher than ever.

‘“This is abnormal. Prices normally fade towards the end of the summer,”’ said John LaForge, head of real asset strategy at the Wells Fargo Investment Institute. Eleven states across the country average $4 a gallon or more, according to AAA. That includes Illinois, Washington, Arizona and California.”

As gas prices continue to reach staggering highs, there is no relief in sight for the American people. The Biden administration has no answers and instead continues enforcing punishing policies that worsen the problem. Hopefully, this administration will see the light soon and reverse their eco-left policies that have taken away our energy independence.
