Yesterday, the Biden administration broke a record they probably wish they hadn’t: the national average for a gallon of gasoline is at an all-time high, topping $4 in the USA and approaching $5.50 at some stations in New York City and California. Americans are feeling the pain at the pump.
And House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) is wondering why Speaker Pelosi has remained so quiet, despite her Trump-era outrage over gas prices hitting $2.84 a gallon.
“Nancy Pelosi feigned alarm be $2.84 gas in 2018. Gas prices have been steadily rising higher than that for the last year under Democrats’ one-party rule. Why is she not upset now that the average price is $4.07 a gallon?” McCarthy shared on Twitter, with a screen shot of an old Pelosi Tweet.
“The price of regular unleaded gas has climbed 20% over the last year (thanks to Republican policies), eating away at working families’ paychecks —but according to (McCarthy), you’re #BetterOffNow,” Pelosi tweeted in 2018 along with a USA Today article on gas prices.
