President Joe Biden gave a speech today in Baltimore, Maryland discussing the infrastructure bill that has been passed by both chambers, but he has yet to sign.
Biden claimed in a tweet, “The deal will upgrade our nation’s ports and strengthen supply chains to prevent disruptions.”
At one point during the speech, Biden inexplicably asked, “Did you ever think you’d be paying this much for a gallon of gas?”
Prior to the election, Republicans pointed out how much higher gas had been at times under the Obama administration and many expected a return to those prices when Biden was elected.
Fact-checkers have been doing everything they can, however, to downplay the prices and suggest that there is no correlation to who is in the Oval Office.
U.S. House Rep Lauren Boebert (R-CO) said that she knew it was coming and in a quote tweet of a clip of Biden saying that, responded, “Yes, the minute you put your hand on the Bible and took the Oath of Office that you’ve since broken.”

“In some parts of California, they are paying $4.50 a gallon. That’s why it’s so important to do everything in our power to stabilize the supply chains,” Biden added after his inexplicable question.
According to GasBuddy data, the average price for a gallon of gasoline in the U.S. is about $3.41 with prices are up 15.1 cents compared to a month ago and $1.31 per gallon higher compared to this time last year.
As Fox Business noted, rising gas prices are a big driver in consumer inflation which rose by the most in 31 years.
