Just so you know

Average gas price here in Western North Carolina, is $2.70 per gallon. And usually gas is highest furthered away from shipping origins.
Yet trump keeps ranting about $8.00 gas because of Joe. As you know Presidents do not set gas costs.
So maybe pundits can throw that out there when they mention unexcited Dems not with Joe and struggling to survive in this economy. Gas is an important part of daily costs of living. Savings on gas can counter greedy overpricing food costs. Plus, food goes down when shipping cost go down from gas needs. But…….Hunter and impeaching all Dems is what I discuss at the kitchen table. according to GQP taking heads.
( I have not sat at the kitchen table in decades) I prefer sitting on the porch with my dogs to discuss political issues.
$2,70 a gallons, and not in a shut down from Covid.

And I love it that every gas prices sign is a constant reminder to my conservative neighbors that these are Biden era prices!

Hawaii used to have us beat, but it is around $4.00 right now.

In my city (Napa, CA) it is around $4.50-$4.99. We have a lot of taxes added to the gas here.
