GasBuddy recently forecasted the national average for gasoline at the pump will rise to $3.41 a gallon in 2022, up from $3.02 a gallon in 2021.
Energy Information Administration (EIA) last week predicted gas will be up to $3.79 in 2022.
White House Resident Joe Biden, on Day One decided to rescind the permit for the Keystone XL Pipeline.
Under President Donald J. Trump’s first term, gas prices were close to $1.20 less than Biden’s first year in office. For the first time in history, Americans were not energy dependent on foreign oil.
Today, US pipeline capacity is sitting around 50%.
“We could see a national average that flirts with, or in a worst-case scenario, potentially exceeds $4 a gallon,” said Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis at GasBuddy, the leading app that tracks fuel prices, demand and outages.
Baby Boomers have not forgotten the amplified inflationary pressures American families grappled with during the 1970s and 1980s. With Biden in control, all analysts (except for those in government and mainstream media) indicate we will soon be living with the biggest price spikes in nearly 40 years.
Many of us experienced first-hand the rationing, restrictions and long lines of President Jimmy Carter’s decisions. It was devastating and did not set too well with most Americans when Carter, discussing high home-heating oil prices, encouraged us to wear a sweater and turn down the thermostat.
Singer Jerry Reed’s new recording was entitled “The Crude Oil Blues.” Other songs hitting the airwaves and record stores were “Get That Gasoline Blues,” by NRBQ and “Where Have All the Gas Pumps Gone To?”
Just as it was with Carter, citizens today see in Biden as someone not on their side of the fight.
