President Biden touted his $1.2 trillion Infrastructure Bill in Baltimore Wednesday afternoon; bizarrely asking the audience if they ever anticipated “paying this much for a gallon of gas?”
“Did you ever think you’d be paying this much for a gallon of gas?” asked Biden.
“In some parts of California they’re paying $4.50 a gallon!” he added.
US consumer prices spiked in October at the fastest pace in 31 years; raising new questions over the country’s shaky recovery following the COVID pandemic.
“The consumer price index climbed 6.2% year over year in October, the Labor Department said. The increase marked the largest annual gain since November 1990. Prices rose 0.9% month over month,” reports Fox News.
“Core prices, which exclude food and energy, increased 0.6% month over month and 4.6% over the past 12 months. Economists were expecting respective increases of 0.4% and 4.3%,” adds Fox.
Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm deflected growing criticism of the Biden administration’s disastrous war on fossil fuels over the weekend; saying she “hopes” gas prices don’t rise to $4 per gallon.
“According to AAA, the national average of gas prices is now $3.42 a gallon. Bank of America is predicting crude oil prices could soar another 50 percent by next June. Could the average gas price in America be $4 a gallon in the United States soon?” “State of the Union” co-anchor Dana Bash asked Granholm on CNN.
“Well, we certainly hope not,” the Energy secretary fired-back.

“Of course, every president is frustrated because they can’t control the price of gasoline because it’s a global market. You can call upon increased supply, which he has done and OPEC is unfortunately controlling the agenda with respect to oil prices. OPEC is a cartel, and it controls over 50 percent of the supply of gasoline,” she added.
“We have the same problem in fuels that the supply chains have, which is that the oil and gas companies are not flipping the switch as quickly as the demand requires,” explained the Secretary.

?????: Biden Rambles On for 50 Seconds, Proclaims ‘That’s How We Beat COVID’
President Biden confused countless Americans during a speaking event in Elk Grove Village, Illinois Thursday where he discussed his ‘Build Back Better’ plan and his efforts to “beat COVID-19.”
“The Ohio Pennsylvania, Ohio Pennsylvania, I’m from Pennsylvania. The Illinois President of the Don Harmon… Um, we got great leadership too. Where’s Tim? … Folks. That’s how we beat COVID-19,” said the President.
President Biden’s approval rating is shrinking to record lows as his administration struggles to contain crisis after crisis, with new data showing just 38% of voters back the Democrat’s performance.
“Biden’s approval rating hovered in the low to mid 50s during his first six months in the White House. But the president’s numbers started sagging in August, in the wake of Biden’s much-criticized handling of the turbulent U.S. exit from Afghanistan, and following a surge in COVID cases this summer among mainly unvaccinated people due to the spread of the highly infectious delta variant, as the nation continues to combat the coronavirus, the worst pandemic to strike the globe in a century. The plunge in the president’s approval was also compounded by the latest surge of migrants trying to cross into the U.S. along the southern border with Mexico,” reports Fox News.
“Biden registers at 48%-50% approval/disapproval on handling the pandemic, according to the Quinnipiac University survey. The president is at 39%-55% on handling the economy, 37%-58% on his job as commander in chief, 34%-58% on foreign policy, and 23%-67% on dealing with the situation at the U.S.-Mexican border,” adds Fox.
