Ron Klain suggests gas prices are down to $3.10 for one-third of states, but that’s not even close to accurate. As of December 11, 2021, 13 states average below $3.10 per gallon, 26%. Either gas prices have risen overnight since Klain’s December 10, 2021 tweet, or he was lying.
Klain was likely lying or rounding up to make President Joe Biden’s administration look good as the White House requested.
The truth is that gas prices were higher on December 10, 2021, when Klain wrote the tweet than this writing on December 11, 2021.
It’s even more shocking that a year ago, the average for regular grade gas was $2.159, $1.15 lower than today.
Gas prices are one thing, but full-blown inflation is another. The Consumer Price Index reported that “over the last 12 months, the all items index increased 6.8 percent before seasonal adjustment.”
That means that even if gas prices were down, prices would still be up.
The Consumer Price Index also reported, “The energy index rose 3.5 percent in November as the gasoline index increased 6.1 percent and the other major energy component indexes also rose. The food index increased 0.7 percent as the index for food at home rose 0.8 percent.”
That was a more accurate figure than Klain tweeted on December 8, 2021.
What insightful words. Do you think it took him a couple of days to find a good source, or do you think his staff did that for him?
This administration is blowing the minds of Democrats and Republicans. The stretch they’re willing to go to look good is baffling. They’re failing miserably, and the entire world is watching. It would be nice if Biden would get impeached already. Then, we can go down the list impeaching Vice President Kamala Harris, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, and whoever gets put in charge after that. It would certainly set a precedent for how to conduct yourself in the Oval Office.
