Is Joe Biden to blame for high gas prices?

“Hurricane Ian could cause problems, depending on the storm’s path, by disrupting oil production in the Gulf of Mexico and affecting major refineries along the coast,” he said.

Hurricanes have had an impact fuel prices Before. A NBC report citing AAA figures, noted that gas prices rose about 45 cents a gallon in less than a week after Hurricane Katrina made landfall in 2008.

As the November election approaches, a fact-checking report CNN noted that President Joe Biden got it wrong last week when he tried to tell inflation-stricken America that he had won victory over high gas prices.

“Gas prices are down, $1.30 a gallon. And in 41 states plus the District of Columbia, the average price of gasoline is under $2.99,” Biden said Friday, according to CNN.

“Biden’s claim about average gas prices was wrong,” CNN noted, adding that the White House had to correct the president when it released a transcript of his comments.

“Biden got a key number wrong: 41 states and the District of Columbia have an average price below $3.99, not $2.99,” CNN wrote.
