Drivers in the heart of New York City are now paying more for gasoline than any point since 2014, with some motorists shelling out upwards of $5 per gallon in midtown Manhattan.
“Gas prices are on the rise and they have hit nearly $5 for regular and are now about $5.40 a gallon for supreme in Manhattan. A Mobil station on 11th Ave. on the West Side had the eye-popping prices on Monday evening,” reports Fox New York.
“Gas prices have jumped across the nation as oil prices reach a 7-year high. The average price of gas across the country is about $3.25 per gallon according to GasBuddy and $3.31 according to the Lundberg Survey,” adds the outlet.
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki admitted the reason behind a national spike in gasoline pricing Thursday; telling reporters the “threat of climate change certainly can’t wait any longer.”
“Certainly we all want to keep gasoline prices low, but the threat of the climate crisis certainly can’t wait any longer,” said Psaki.

The national price for a gallon of gasoline rose to $3.21 Wednesday, reaching a new high for 2021 after steadily increasing from $2.18 on Inauguration Day.
Experts predict the cost will likely reach $3.30 by the end of October.
Earlier this year, the Biden administration asked OPEC to increase oil production after limiting facilities here in the United States.
National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan released a statement in August urging OPEC to increase production to help lower oil costs; raising even more questions over the Biden administration’s recent regulation’s on America’s energy sector.
“Higher gasoline costs, if left unchecked, risk harming the ongoing global recovery. The price of crude oil has been higher than it was at the end of 2019, before the onset of the pandemic,” writes Sullivan.
“President Biden has made clear that he wants Americans to have access to affordable, reliable energy, including at the pump. Although we are not a party to OPEC, the United States will always speak to international partners regarding issues of significance that affect our national economic and security affairs,” he adds.
