'GAS'LIGHTING: Biden Claims Gas Was More Than $5 a Gallon When He Took Office

That’s not true, Joe.

During Thursday’s event at the Onondaga Community College’s SRC Arena in Syracuse, New York, President Biden made an outrageous claim that fact checkers immediately flagged as an outright lie —that gas was $5 a gallon when he took office.

“And because of the action we’ve taken, gas prices are declining. We’re down $1.25 since the peak this summer and there been falling for the last three weeks as well, and adding up real savings for families today. The most common price of gas in America is $3.39, down from over five dollars when I took office,” Biden said.

“The lies are staggering,” radio host Clay Travis tweeted.

“It’s not hyperbole to say Joe Biden is the biggest liar in presidential history. And that’s saying something because they all lie all the time. But he tell these bizarre black and white lies that any idiot can verify. It’s honestly very strange,” Jesse Kelly, host of “The Jesse Kelly Show,” wrote.

According to AAA, the average price for a gallon of gas on Thursday was $3.76. Meanwhile, the cost for gas on Jan. 20, 2021, the day Biden took office, was approximately $2.39, according to Fox News.
