Alabama Gas Station Manager Says He Removes Five Or Six Biden ‘I Did That’ Stickers From Gas Pumps Each Day
“As gas prices keep climbing, Cagle says the stickers are rising up with them.”
If you’ve been to a gas station lately, you may have seen the small stickers featuring Joe Biden, usually positioned so that he is pointing to the price with the caption, “I did that.”
The stickers are sold in packs of 100 online, and they’re turning up everywhere.
One gas station manager in Alabama was recently featured in a local news report about this and said that he removes five or six of the stickers from his pumps every day.
Apparently, stations can be fined by their corporations for vandalism if the stickers aren’t removed.
Nicole Zedeck reports at WAAY News in Alabama:
Satirical sticker at North Alabama gas pumps bringing problems for gas station owners
As gas prices surge, some people are voicing their concern with a satirical sticker at the pump.
That small sticker is causing big problems for local gas stations. It is a picture of President Biden pointing to the high dollar sign and saying ‘I did that’ underneath. While it may seem like a funny political message to some people, the gas stations could be fined for vandalism.
“I take off 5 or 6 a day from our different pumps,” says Perry Cagle. He’s the assistant manger of the Exxon off Highway 72 in Athens.
As gas prices keep climbing, Cagle says the stickers are rising up with them.
“I got one here, it’s the ‘I did that’ and then they put it by the pump and it’s supposed to be that Joe, President Biden, is causing the gas to go up,” he says.
The satirical joke is turning away some costumers.
“I have had one or two people come in here and complain about it,” says Cagle.
Not only that, but the stickers could cost his locally owned station a corporate fine.
“The point of the matter is it’s causing issues for us because we get points taken off if our corporate comes by and does inspections they do,” Cagle explains.
He says he is all for people voicing their political beliefs, just not at his workplace.
“Put it on your car, put it on your house. Don’t vandalize private property,” he says.

This has been going on for a while now, even in blue New England.
Joe Battenfeld reported at the Boston Herald back in November of 2021:
If you see Joe Biden’s picture on a gas pump these days, it’s not a tribute to his amazingly successful energy policy.
The stickers — with Biden pointing to the $3.50 a gallon gas price and saying “I did that!” — are part of a Republican guerrilla campaign to undermine the Democratic administration. They’ve gone viral online.
And it’s cheap and easy.
A 100-pack of the stickers is going for just six bucks on Amazon.
You might see the derisive stickers up in New Hampshire, the swing state Biden is set to visit on Tuesday to promote his $1.2 trillion infrastructure package that just passed Congress…
Biden’s approval rating in the Granite State is the same as it is nationally — abysmal. And the passage of the infrastructure bill won’t change that, no matter how much the Democrats and CNN celebrate it.
The gas pump stickers are similar tactics to what Democrats did to Republican presidents like Trump. Remember those “Not my President” bumper stickers? So in a way Republicans now are just returning the favor.
This is right up there with “Let’s Go Brandon.”
Pretty funny stuff.
