As Townhall reported in the final weeks of September, the White House’s braggadocios statements on falling gas prices — while conveniently omitting that the national average cost for a gallon of unleaded and diesel fuel had hit record highs on Biden’s watch — abruptly came to an end because prices leveled out and began to show signs of increasing again.
Now, in the first week of October, the national average price for gas has turned around after hitting the apparent bottom of a dip in gas prices — still higher than when Biden took office — and are inching upward again as inflation in other economic sectors continues to accelerate as demonstrated by recent reads of the Consumer Price Index, Producer Price Index, and PCE Price Index.

Rather than Biden and his party’s feeble attempts to blame supposedly “greedy” corporations and Putin’s invasion of Ukraine, GasBuddy’s Head of Petroleum Analysis Patrick De Haan points to fuel shortages and OPEC’s pending decision on whether to cut production…two things that would have been non-issues if Biden hadn’t killed America’s energy independence: Some West Coast states saw prices rise 35 to 55 cents per gallon in the last week as refinery issues continued to impact gasoline supply, which fell to its lowest level in a decade in the region, causing prices […]
We Often Feel Like David Taking on Giants
Today’s Goliath is the Mainstream Media Industrial Complex that brainwashes the masses.
Our mission is very straightforward: To counter the false narratives and nefarious agendas destroying America today. It isn’t easy for obvious reasons; despite incredible growth over the last year we are still a very tiny fish in a huge media pond. But we’re fighting and we will continue to do so, Lord willing, for as long as we possibly can. The battle for America’s present and future is too important for us to back down to the giants that stand in our way.
We need help. I don’t want to say “desperately,” but the need is definitely great. If you have the means, please donate through our GivingFuel page, PayPal, or our Substack page. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
