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.
According to GasBuddy , “[f]or the second straight week, gas prices have headed higher, with the nation’s average gas price posting a rise of 11.1 cents from a week ago to $3.78 per gallon today, according to GasBuddy data compiled from more than 11 million individual price reports covering over 150,000 stations nationwide,” meaning the national average “is up 0.4 cents from a month ago and 59.8 cents higher than a year ago.” How’s that “Build Back Better” agenda going?
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 […]
Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our Giving Fuel. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
