President Joe Biden falsely claimed that the national average price of gas per gallon was “over $5 when i took office” during prepared remarks delivered on Thursday.
“The most common price of gas in America is three dollars and 39 cents, down from over $5 when I took office,” Biden said.
It is unclear where the President sourced the idea that gas prices were “over $5” in January 2020, but the claim is completely untrue.
In actuality, the national average for a gallon of gas was $2.39, less than half of $5 and over a dollar less than the $3.39 figure Biden bragged about on Thursday.
Inflation has spiked dramatically under the Biden administration, and polling data shows that the regime is highly unpopular despite attempts to blame high energy cost on Vladimir Putin’s Russia.

Biden sputtered more unintelligible jargon regarding gun control during a presidential forum with far-left organization NowThis this week, claiming he has authored legislation preventing there being “more than 8 bullets in a round, okay?”
“My, my, my legislation says there can be no more than eight bullets in a round, okay?” Biden stammered.
It is unclear what exactly the commander-in-chief of the united States was talking about, though it is possible he confused the word “round” – another term for bullet – with “magazine,” which is the accessory that holds the bullets in many modern firearms.
