Biden and his political allies treated the State of the Union like a siege against a Freedom Convoy that wasn’t even scheduled to arrive. Now that it’s actually getting closer, the country is under siege, not by the convoy, but by gas prices.
Here’s a report out of Los Angeles.
Gas prices spiked more than 13 cents in one day this week — the largest one day hike since 2015.
Pumps near the Beverly Center offered $6.65 for regular Friday and more than $7 for premium. On Saturday, the average price of a gallon of self-serve regular in Los Angeles County rose 9.5 cents to $5.247.
At a station across from the Beverly Center Saturday, a gallon of regular costs $6.95. A gallon of premium will set you back $7.55.
The weight of the environmental regulations that have made California gas so expensive is falling on minorities.
Sam’s Club in Arcadia offered what is now considered a bargain — $4.29 for regular.
Long lines of cars had been pulling in all morning.
“It’s too high right now,” Maria Rayos said as she waited her turn.
She is still filling up despite the sudden hike Friday.
She says she is doing her best to limit her driving to save gas, including driving around to find the cheapest in town.
So naturally California Democrats are moving to ban offshore drilling. Senator Dianne Feinstein introduced a federal bill to ban offshore drilling last year.
They can’t wait until no one except them can afford to drive.
