Stickers that are being placed on gas pumps across the country are reminding Americans why they’re paying so much for gasoline eight months into President Joe Biden’s presidency.
The stickers are actually of Biden, and they point toward the outrageous cost of fuel on the pumps themselves. The cost is of course being driven by the inept commander in chief and his failed policies.
Images and videos of the stickers began popping up on TikTok, Instagram, Facebook and Twitter about a month ago. They’ve been seen across the country.

Of course, fuel is much more expensive in some areas of the country, such as California.

This is all partially the result of Biden’s aggressive stance against the energy sector. The president has taken measures since January meant to ensure America is reliant on foreign crude.
He needlessly canceled the Keystone XL pipeline lease on day one of his presidency. In June, he suspended drilling leases at the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in northeastern Alaska, CBS News reported. One of Biden’s radical climate advisors defended the decision to reverse a Trump administration move to tap into the area’s fuel reserves.
Biden National Climate Advisor Gina McCarthy praised the decision to rid the country of oil from ANWR in a statement to the left-wing network.
“President Biden believes America’s national treasures are cultural and economic cornerstones of our country and he is grateful for the prompt action by the Department of the Interior to suspend all leasing pending a review of decisions made in the last administration’s final days that could have changes the character of this special place forever,” McCarthy said.
ANWR’s “cultural” treasures are of course unable by themselves to help Americans afford to drive. That’s yet another reason for a surge in fuel prices.
“We are engaging with relevant OPEC+ members on the importance of competitive markets in setting prices,” National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan told the network. “Competitive energy markets will ensure reliable and stable energy supplies, and OPEC+ must do more to support the recovery.”
Gasoline right now is as expensive as it was the last time a Democrat occupied the White House. That was curiously the last time Biden was near the Oval office when he served as former President Barack Obama’s vice president.
There is definitely a correlation there. A growing number of patriots are spending a little extra on stickers to remind others why they have less money than they did a year ago.
