Remember last Fourth of July when the White House informed us all that we’d be paying $0.16 less for our Independence Day cookouts than the previous year? The Biden administration actually thought that was something to brag about, and it was just today that Jen Psaki claimed that “the American people are not looking at cost-to-cost comparisons from this year to two years ago.” This is the same person who tried to tell us in May that Americans were actually “paying less in real terms for gas” despite the price jump.
The Associated Press is reporting that the government is saying winter heating prices could jump 54 percent this year — we’re sure COVID-19 has something to do with it.
AP: U.S. government expects households to see heating bills jump as much as 54% compared to last winter

When you declare war on the industry that keeps you warm in the winter, things get cold quickly.

I heard stories of living under Carter. Funny how history rhymes.

The Carter years were the roaring 20's compared to this.

Pretty soon we’ll see them trot out President Biden wearing a sweater for a televised fireside chat.

We remember. And odd-and-even days for gas lines? Good times.

At this point it is hard to argue that this is due to incompetence of the current administration and not intentional.

Just wait until the Biden admin gets rid of natural gas and coal…solar and wind for your winter heat!

Worse than Carter. That should have been his campaign slogan. At least Carter could put a coherent sentence together

Question for the Biden administration: will utility bills exceeding $600 this winter also be monitored and tracked by the IRS?

No, the American people certainly aren’t comparing today’s prices to those last year.
We’re not? Jen Psaki calmly explains that Americans aren’t ackshually looking at how much more things cost now than two years ago https://t.co/WAp9ct4GeI
