Gas prices hit another record high Friday, and new polling shows voters think this is part of President Joe Biden’s plan for the future.
Prices are $4.99 nationally with several states over $5 per gallon and California above $6 per gallon.
A new poll from Convention of States Action, along with the Trafalgar Group, found “53 percent of American voters believe the Biden Administration is intentionally letting gas prices rise to make Americans use less fossil fuels.”
That notion especially highlighted when Biden referred to the prices as “an incredible transition that is taking place that, God willing, when it’s over, we’ll be stronger and the world will be stronger and less reliant on fossil fuels when this is over.”
Those comments sparked major controversy.
Meals on Wheels could deliver less due to record-breaking gas prices.
The most vulnerable in society are impacted the most by Biden’s “incredible transition” to green energy.

It’s not partisan to take note of facts. @JoeBiden has now presided over a doubling of gas prices… shafting regular working folks and the poor in a way. Never seen before in American history. Is this Joe’s “incredible transition?” https://t.co/mHlrL8lEd8

When Joe Biden entered the White House, a gallon of gas was $2.46. Now, it’s $5.15 a gallon in Cleves. The only thing “incredible” about Biden’s disastrous “transition” away from gas is how “incredibly” expensive and “incredibly” painful it is for American families. pic.twitter.com/24AMvwTKGu
