Gas prices have doubled since Joe Biden was “elected” president in November 2020.
Gas on Tuesday reached $4.13 per gallon which is still over the previous record all-time high before Joe Biden became president.
Despite the record pain at the pump, Joe Biden blocked oil drilling on millions of acres of US land on Monday.

The Daily Caller reported:
The Biden administration reversed a Trump-era policy Monday that massively expanded the area available for fossil fuel leasing even as gasoline prices remained near an all-time high.
The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) issued a record of decision, reducing the land available for energy leasing in the National Petroleum Reserve in Alaska (NPR-A) to its level set in 2013. In June 2020, former Interior Secretary David Bernhardt finalized a decision allowing 18.6 million acres, or 82%, of the NPR-A’s subsurface estate to be open for oil and gas leasing.
The average price of gasoline nationwide increased to $4.13 per gallon on Tuesday, remaining near its all-time high, according to AAA data. Pump prices have surged throughout President Joe Biden’s first 15 months in office.
“Today’s decision ensures the NPR-A will be managed consistent with the 2013 [Integrated Activity Plan], while including certain more protective lease stipulations and operating procedures for threatened and endangered species … confirmed through consultation with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the National Marine Fisheries Service,” the BLM said in its announcement Monday.
