Biden May Have Saved You Two Cents at the Gas Pump and Democrats Want You to be Thankful

“2 cents saved on gas is the absolute perfect sequel to 16 cents saved on hot dogs. What a time to be alive.”

Americans across the country are struggling with higher gas prices that are still rising, but Democrats have found a silver lining.

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) recently noted that Joe Biden may have gotten the price of a gallon of gas to drop by as much as two cents.

They actually put out a tweet about this:

Just amazing:

Remember July 4th when the Biden administration bragged about saving you 16 cents on the cost of your cookout?

Even the liberal Washington Post knows how bad this looks:

This might be the worst defense of the Biden administration yet

No one would argue that things are going perfectly for President Biden. Many, in fact, would point out that, at least politically, things have rarely been worse. His approval rating is in the low 40s, and his efforts to finalize his major spending package are trudging along. It’s possible that, by the weekend, he’ll be contending with a government shutdown.

So it’s safe to say that having his allies gin up defenses as shoddy as this won’t really help much.

That’s a graph from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) showing a drop in the average price of a gallon of gas in the United States. The line does go downward, it’s true, and rather dramatically. Were that axis on the left a scale from zero to $4 a gallon, that decrease would be remarkable. Nearly free gas! Certainly something worth hyping.

But the axis does not use the scale. Instead, the line drops from about $3.40 to about $3.38, as marked on the y-axis — or, in layman’s terms, a decline of two cents. And since we’re talking about two cents out of nearly four dollars, that graph depicts a drop in the price of gas of just under 1 percent of the cost.

Since Biden took office, the price of gas has risen more than a dollar on this same measure.

Enjoy your two cent bonus, America. Don’t spend it all in one place.

The best thing Biden can do for the country is nothing……… absolutely nothing. That way his unique talent for screwing up everything he touches will remain dormant.

The technique of deceptively choosing x- and y-axis ranges was described in the classic book, “How to Lie With Statistics”.

Overconfidence in one’s propaganda allies is the only gift that keeps on giving in this admin.

Thank you sir, may I have another?

Once you’re dependent on teh government for everything you’re grateful for any scraps they give you.

He didn’t save anything, this is a normal drop for winter

Young voters who voted for him and earn the least are hardest hit.

LOVING IT.

    Know what I’m not loving? They have NO IDEA. They are incapable of connecting how badly they vote with how badly they have to live. They are to national age cohorts what California is to geography. A total disconnect between their virtue-signaling politics and their destruction of the country..

Biden has two cents but zero sense.

All sponsored media must be considered as a combination of Lord Haw Haw, Tokio Rose. and Axis Sally

Mike, you missed the graph bunches of folks posted in response, showing that miniscule drop in relation to the massive run-up of prices in the previous 11 months.

This one, for example.

Biden is not responsible when gas goes up, only when it goes down.

Why would I thank that pedophile for saving me two cents after he raised the price $1.50 before that? Damn communists are stupid.
