Gas prices hit yet another high Tuesday, and critics President Joe Biden because of it.
Gas prices are above $5 in several states and more than $6 per gallon in California.
That has drawn major criticism on Twitter.
The national average for unleaded gas hit another new high of $4.62 per gallon Tuesday, according to AAA data. Prices are up more than 50% compared with last year. Glad the “adults” are in charge! Great job @JoeBiden. https://t.co/RyzlGq7LvW

Gas prices were under $2 a gallon when Trump was last president on Memorial Day. Remember this.

Joe Biden says we’re experiencing the “most robust” economic recovery in history.
If by that he means $5 gas, record inflation, and soaring grocery prices, then sure, it’s robust.

Reminder – soaring gas prices are a direct result of Joe Biden’s anti-energy agenda.

For Joe Biden, high gas prices are the point.
When fuel is high it makes his “green” initiatives seem more appealing.
Wake up, America!
That’s why Biden doesn’t want us energy independent.

Biden has also taken fire for saying that the higher gas prices are part of a transition, leading many to assume he expects prices to stay high as the nation moves toward green energy.
After flying around on a 747 while taxpayers pay for his jet fuel, Joe Biden said, “When it comes to the gas prices, we’re going through an incredible transition.”

Even liberal TV network CNN turned on the president.
