    Yo, California, you doing okay out there? Just checking. The rest of us? We're doing pretty okay, but you're giving us a great preview of what it will look like when we get that Green New Deal at the federal level, with your outrageous taxes on gasoline. Los Angeles County drivers have been experiencing more pain at the pump recently as gas prices have surged past $6 per gallon this week. As of Tuesday, the average price for a gallon of gas in L.A. County had reached $6.03, according to AAA. Ventura County's average price sits at $6.00 per gallon...
  • UAW’s 20% Wage Hike Demands Just Coping With Bidenonomics (Gasoline Prices UP 70% Under Union Joe While Food CPI Up 20%)

    The Big Three auto companies and the UAW are suffering under Bidenomics (code for massive green energy payoffs to large donors). As I pointed out yesterday, the auto industry suffered a large decline of -7.60% in Q2 as a result of rising car prices (going electric is EXPENSIVE) and increasing consumer debt to cope with Bidenomics. So when we consider the UAW’s demands of $20 an hour hike in pay, you have to consider that under “Union Joe” gasoline prices are up 70%, and food CPI is up 20%. So a 20% pay hike won’t even cover the cost of...
  • Europe’s Gasoline Demand Is Increasing, Despite the Shift to Electric Vehicles

    09/10/2023 5:40:39 PM PDT · by RomanSoldier19 · 15 replies
    Europe is using more gasoline despite the push to electric vehicles as consumers are holding onto their vehicles longer. Car ownership is increasing in Europe as remote work results in more people living in the country where vehicles are a necessity. EV market share grows because of government subsidies, despite their much higher costs. Despite increased electric vehicle sales in Europe, its gasoline demand is rising. In the UK, gasoline demand for the January-to-June period this year was the strongest since 2015, according to Bloomberg. In France, gasoline demand hit a 20-year high during the summer. In Spain, gasoline demand...

    U.S. gasoline prices are headed higher in the nation’s corn belt, and could rise by as much as $1 per gallon at some gas stations, the head of petroleum analysis at GasBuddy warned on Thursday. GasBuddy’s Patric DeHaan implored the EPA to issue fuel waivers ASAP, as the wholesale price of gasoline spikes in Oklahoma, Missouri, South Dakota, North Dakota, Nebraska, Montana, and Kansas. “ALERT: #GasPrices will likely rise 25-75c/gal in OK, MO, SD, ND, NE, MN and KS over the next few days. Some stations may go up closer to $1/gal as the wholesale price of gasoline is spiking...

  • Gasoline prices on the rise despite high oil production in the US

    The Hill ^ | 08/15/2023 | RACHEL FRAZIN
    The average price for a gallon of gasoline in the U.S. is $3.85. That’s up nearly 30 cents from a month ago. Prices are still lower this year than they were last year due to spikes caused by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine; however, they are at their highest point this year. Factors influencing the high gasoline prices include oil supply cuts abroad and issues at refineries that turn crude oil into gasoline. Oil prices are a major factor in the price of the gasoline that eventually reaches consumers at the pump. Oil prices have been on the rise over the...
  • Graham: AG Garland Poured ‘Gasoline’ on Fire with Hunter Biden Special Counsel Appointment

    Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said Friday on FNC’s “America Reports” that Attorney General Merrick Garland appointing David Weiss as special counsel in the Hunter Biden investigation was akin to pouring gasoline on a fire. Graham said, “This was a political decision, not a legal decision. They’re trying to put out a fire, and they just poured gasoline on it. Nobody in their right mind believes that making him a special counsel, Mr. Weiss, cleans up the mess that’s been created.”

    Josef Stalin of the old Soviet Union used to be called County Joe. But Biden has so many possible nicknames: Corrupt Joe, Pay-for-play Joe, Sleazy Joe, Bully Joe, etc. How about Green Joe? Green Joe (or the Nasty Green Giant?) along with his energy goon Jennifer Granholm, have drained the strategic petroleum reserve by 46% while gasoline prices have soared 60% under Bidenomics. Gasoline prices have rise over 6.5% just since 7/23/2023. Trump wants to drain the swamp, Biden/Granholm want to drain the strategic petroleum reserve so we can’t go back to fossil fuels. Biden and Granholm as Fossil Fools...

    (NEXSTAR) – Temperatures around the country aren’t the only numbers reaching new heights. Gas prices are also heating up, reaching a nationwide average of $3.76 per gallon on Monday, according to AAA. The situation is way worse out West. In California, the average is $5. Washington isn’t far behind at $4.95. Gas prices typically rise in the summer, but the heat is making it even worse this year, industry experts say.

    Joe Biden said that Republicans will impeach him in the House of Representatives since inflation is coming down. Huh? No Joe, it is because your are the most corrupt President in history, a compulsive liar and your economic policies are pure World Economic Forum mandates (open borders, Central Bank Digital currency, green energy, etc). Biden started off his Presidency by declaring war on fossil fuels that helped drive prices through the roof. And the middle class are paying the price. But as inflation cools (blue line) thanks in part to Biden draining the Strategic Petroleum Reserve (orange line), Biden can...

    Biden Press Secretary KARINE JEAN-PIERRE: “The American people are beginning to feel Bidenomics” Prices are up 16.6% and real wages are down 3% since Biden took office. Well, at least Jean-Pierre didn’t claim like her boss Joe Biden claimed that he “ended cancer as we know it.” But getting back to Jean-Pierre’s claim that “The American people are beginning to feel Bidenomics.” She is right (for once). Americans are REALLY feeling Bidenomics. And it hurts SO BAD!!! What hurts so bad? Food (CRB Foodstuffs) are up 56% under Bidenomics. Real weekly wage growth is down -90% since Biden assumed office....
  • Climate Expert: Gas Car Cancellation Is Intended to End Private Transport

    Soon after a World Economic Forum partner was caught calling for an “end” to private car ownership, a climate expert is warning that the push to cancel gas-powered cars is just a ploy to end private transport. The climate crisis is a hoax, but it’s such a darn useful hoax for authoritarian globalists.Climate Depot’s Marc Morano went on Fox Business Thursday and discussed how the Democrat and globalist push to replace gas cars with electric vehicles (EVs) isn’t about helping the environment but restricting Americans’ freedom of movement. “This really isn’t about them driving an electric car,” Morano said, highlighting...
  • From aloe vera to gasoline and even pickled Asian vegetables: Ten other 'possibly carcinogenic' substances following WHO's re-classification of aspartame

    A sweetener used in a swathe of everyday items from diet soft drinks to yoghurt is 'possibly carcinogenic to humans', World Health Organization bosses ruled today. Aspartame – added to Diet Coke, Extra chewing gum and Muller Light yoghurts – is now classed as posing a 2B cancer risk, meaning there is limited but not convincing evidence. But WHO bosses also claimed that aspartame does not pose a cancer risk at current consumption levels. Only people who consume excessive quantities face a heightened risk, researchers concluded. Nearly 100 products have been given the same ranking as aspartame, from common suncream...

    What is Bidenomics? It isn’t what Press Secretary Karine Jean Pierre thinks. She said Biden hates “trick down economics”. Instead, Biden prefers a Soviet-style command economy where The Federal Government spends trillions of dollars and directs where the money goes. We also have the Socialist Federal Reserve that relies on rate manipulation to achieve policy results. A good example of Biden’s Soviet-style “Bidenomics” is his use of the Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR). Biden has now drained almost 50% of the SPR from when he was sworn in as President. And has drained the SPR for 14 straigth weeks to manipulate...
  • Massive Price Increase Coming In New York State (Gasoline)

    According to Triple A, the average cost for a gallon of regular fuel is now $3.49. That is up a dime in the past week and is also eight cents more than this time one month ago. Some portions of New York State are getting close to that four dollar mark this week. Why? International moves in the oil market are making things more expensive across the world on just about everything. OPEC will slash output and will cause much higher prices for gas!

    New peak pricing at electric car chargepoints can leave consumers worse off than if they stuck to traditional petrol-engined vehicles, according to new analysis from the AA. Previous analysis by motoring organisations has showed the cost of charging electric vehicles has soared in recent months, driven by rising energy prices partly triggered by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine last February...

    As the global economy slows and global central banks continue to tighten, we are seeing gasoline and diesel prices falling. But bear in mind that US gasoline prices remain 30% higher since Biden was sworn-in as President. Diesel prices are up a staggering 78% since that fatal day. Speaking of tightening monetary policy, the US Treasury yield curves have flattened/inverted since The Fed started tightening with rate increases to fight inflation. Let’s see how inflation does with Congress’ $1.7 trillion, unread Omnibus bill. Aka, Grand Theft Congress. Pelosi is holding an iPhone and Schumer is holding the scope rifle. McConnell...

AAA shows a national average retail price of $3.76 for a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline. That’s down from the $3.82 average at this time last week, but unchanged from one month ago.

    Eight dollars for a gallon of gas. Once, it seemed like an impossibility; now, it seems to happen in California every time there is a price spike. Last week, a Chevron station in Los Angeles recorded prices of $8.35 and above; similar prices were reported at multiple stations around Southern California
