The White House offered their spin on gas prices reaching a 7 year high approaching Memorial Day.
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said in a statement “While prices have increased from the lows last year—as demand drastically dipped—prices at just about $3 per gallon are still well in-line with what they’ve been in recent decades.”
Conservatives were not convinced and several took to Twitter to mockingly “thank” Biden for the benchmark.
This weekends gas prices highest since 2014.
