Biden brings Americans higher gas prices
Red State runs a revealing report, titled: “ BREAKING: State of Emergency Declared in 17 States and D.C. After Pipeline Cyberattack.”
Equally serious, the shutting down of the Keystone XL pipeline has been disastrous. Thanks to the Biden administration’s policies, gas prices have skyrocketed. His surrogates claim his $2.25 trillion infrastructure and tax plan will be funded largely by raising taxes on U.S. corporations, neglecting to add that those costs will, in turn, be passed on to consumers. A walk through the supermarket or big box store is sobering as prices have surged astronomically, and the rising gas prices are reflected in the transportation costs of food and other necessities.
Candidate Biden, bowing to the far left flank of his party, announced his plan to cancel the Keystone XL pipeline permit via executive action on his first day in office. This action occurred despite objections from Canada and the resulting thousands of good-paying jobs lost by American workers.
Twenty-one states, Arizona among them, led by attorneys general from Texas and Montana, entered into this lawsuit, filed March 17, 2021, against Pres. Biden and members of his cabinet, alleging he overstepped his presidential authority in canceling the pipeline.

The answer to the vast discrepancies in the price of a gallon of regular gas in various locations across the United States is clearly political. California, burdened by far leftist Gov. Gavin Newsom, has prices that far exceed those in other states. In blue states, controls have given way to higher taxes, which translate to higher prices per gallon.
