Who’s Up For A $6 National Gas Average?

Everything Biden and his Democrat Comrades are doing is working great, right? Except, this is not a policy failure, it’s an intended consequence

Experts warn we could see national average of $6 gas by August

st greta carThe average gas price in North Carolina stands at $4.32 per gallon on Wednesday. Experts are now saying we could see gas prices at $6 by the end of the summer.

The local average jumped 6 cents Tuesday night — the largest increase we’ve seen in awhile.

CNN Business reports the average price for gasoline in California hit $6 a gallon Tuesday for the first time, and that could become the national average in only a few months.

“There is a real risk the price could reach $6+ a gallon by August,” Natasha Kaneva, head of global oil and commodities research at JPMorgan, told CNN in an email on Tuesday.

While JPMorgan is concerned it could be difficult to meet intense demand during this summer’s driving season, other experts don’t believe gas prices will ever get that high because many people would likely “balk at $6 gas” and drive less.

Biden doesn’t want to do anything to alleviate this. He wants to force you to stop driving, to get an EV (where do they come from? Production is way down on everything), to ride a bike, walk, or take the bus. Meanwhile

Let’s say he drove: a huge fossil fueled limo surround by around 18 other fossil fueled vehicles.

You know what happens when gas goes up? That’s right, everything goes up. All your food and goods cost more because it has to be delivered. Consider this CNBC piece from November 2021 on why beef prices are so high

Many of the factors that led to beef’s dramatic price increase can be traced back to 2020, when Covid shut down production plants and hobbled the nation’s meat production capabilities.

The slowdown left farmers with nowhere to send their beef, which resulted in them having to cull cattle and other livestock. That, coupled with uncertainty about the future, caused farmers to scale back their production at the time, which Sundaram says “can affect production more than a year, year and a half down the road.”

At the same time, processing facilities have dealt with labor shortages that have reduced their capacity to process meat at the same clip as before the pandemic. This reduced production came as demand for beef returned from both consumers and restaurants, forcing prices higher.

From the prices of the chemical fertilizers that help grow the feed that cattle eat to the cost of the materials used to package meat for sale to consumers, every aspect of the beef supply chain has become more expensive.

“Think about the amount of polystyrene that is used to put out the meat. The tray and pads from the supermarket. So much goes into beef production, and all of those costs have gone up, which affects the cost of a hamburger or a steak,” Lively says. He adds that carbon dioxide, which is used in ground beef production to keep meat cold, has almost doubled in price over the past year.

And the cost of shipping, much due to gas/diesel prices.

    U.S. gasoline prices are middle of the pack globally. How did President Biden raise global gas prices?

    • L.G.Brandon!, L.G.Brandon! says:

      Mr. Dowd you really don’t know jack shit about economics or global prices do you?

      • drowningpuppies says:

        Rimjob doesn’t know jackshit about anything.
        Except ruining his company.

        Bwaha! Lolgf https://www.thepiratescove.us/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_cool.gif

        Lurid Groooomer,

        How did President Biden cause global inflation, particularly for gasoline prices? Gasoline is over $9/gal in Norway!! Canada is $6.35/gal. France is $7.58. Germany $8.26. Hungary $4.86.

        If you bozos don’t know, maybe Teach can solve this!! Is it because President Biden made Putin invade Ukraine?

          The right for years tried to call the left the real racists and it just never stuck and it always looks very weak.

          there is an old meme that you do not use the other side’s language against them.

          the left thought it was funny and barely even talked about any attempts to label them racists.

          Hahaha, they would scoff. And then one day.

          The left started using the word GROOMER and Voile.

          The left has become unhinged. It is true. They admit it. They have a strategy put in place for decades to turn the children against their country and parents.

          Now the left is angry and trying to use GROOMER against the right.

          Dowd, it doesn’t work. It has become the go-to label the right singlehandedly placed on the left and your use against anyone here simply makes you look silly.

      Dearest Elwood:

      Look out the window.

      This is the United States.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        Our Dearest James Lewis,

        Push drowningpuppies out of the way and osculate our tuchus!!

    • Doom and Gloom says:

      Biden raised US taxes by shutting down the Fossil fuel industry. It is a covert action by the left that has wall street terrified to spend a dime on the US fossil fuel industry.

      The people you hate the most are the ones that are driving this across the planet. The left has infiltrated business and has shut down financing for fossil fuels. Hence it is strictly 100 percent on the doorstep of lunatic leftist at this moment led by Diaper Joe Biden.

      You can bet if Diapers were in short supply he would have declared a national emergency a long time ago.

    What, the White House doesn’t have meeting and briefing rooms?

    • L.G.Brandon!, L.G.Brandon! says:

      Sure they do Dana but they’re all being used by dem operatives to try and figure out a way not to explode in November. The few that are left are being used by BLM and such to plan the next round of burning looting and murdering for the summer festivities.

  3. Hairy says:

    The USA is currently exporting about 2 million barells of gas diesel jp5 each day.
    That is about 100 million gallons per DAY.
    Oil companies se product to maximize profit.
    Should Biden atop those exports? I think he should. Total USA gas consumption is about 400 mlion hal per day. Should BIG GOVERNMENT force our gas To be sold here in the USA??

  4. DCE says:

    If gas prices are like that at our local gas stations, I hate to think what gas will cost at the gas docks at marinas. (I live in an area where summer tourism is a big industry and part of the attraction is a large lake, so lots of boats needing gas.) I figure we’ll see marine gas prices north of $7 by the Fourth of July.

  5. James Lewis says:

    We don’t have an oil shortage.

    We have an EXPECTATION of an oil shortage caused by the reduction of the number of government drilling permits which in turn will reduce the number of wells, etc. This followed by the shut down of what was to be a large supply of oil from Canada and a government controlled by the radical Left which desires carbon based energy sources to be shut down.

    I do not trust the “oil companies.” They will use any excuse to increase prices. And I’m not saying that is “bad” or that the government should regulate prices. Two wrongs do not make a right. Plus, speculation is also a factor. Dec 2022 price is around $95.00/barrel. Current is $109.

    The price in June 2008 was around $130., local gas was around $3.30. It is now $4.29. Adjusting for about a 20 cent state tax increase, the comparison is $4.09 at $109. oil vs $3.30 at $130 oil.

    So there’s a certain amount of “getting what we can when we can” going on.

    Back in May 2008 the Democrats voted down 5 attempts to open up federal lands for more exploration and oil price took off, again based on speculation of shortages.

    In July 2008. Bush issued a presidential order opening up off shore drilling and the run up was stopped. Prices went down, but not enough to save the party in power, Republicans.

    It will be a chilly day in Hades when Biden moves to increase drilling.

    So we are at the mercy of the oil companies.

    Lord help us all.

    Elwood does more to promote the thinking and logic of conservatives with a single post than so many of us combined over weeks of input. He is so plainly a lunatic, he so effortlessly epitomizes the embarrassing state of “progressive” thought that he destroys any credibility of his own cause. I often think he is infact running a parody of liberals. Whatever the case Elwood, keep it up! We need more kooks like you showing the world what you dumb liberals are really all about!

    • L.G.Brandon!, L.G.Brandon! says:

      He is one of our best recruiters. I show his comments to friends and they can’t believe he’s serious. He’s turned leftists into Republicans with just one comment. He’s an asset to the post and to the entire nation by showing what people shouldn’t think. He’s our very own Goebbels, Dahmer, Kermit Gosnell and black killing eugenics freak Margaret Sanger all wrapped into one. If he could kill more he’d do it especially conservatives and Christians. His seemingly endless supply of hate, vitriol, condescension, elitism and snark are a tribute to a failed American education/propaganda system. And his ability to seek out and support the most perverted, evil and anti American among us is a gift. Nobody this side of the 9th Circle of Hell can do better at siding with immorality than our very own Dowd.

      It’s gonna be fantastic to watch him twist in the wind after his legions of corrupt and evil sycophants get slaughtered in the next election…. unless they cheat and seal another one.
