Biden Under Fire For Lying About Gas Prices

Over time, Joe Biden has demonstrated a disturbing pattern of willingness to try lying his way out of various controversies. Apparently, the president believes if he says something loudly and with enough conviction, that will make it true.

Biden’s done this on a number of issues, from the southern border to crime, inflation, and more. Of course, when there’s real-world, empirical evidence proving the president wrong, this isn’t just going to vanish.

At this rate, Biden’s lied so much about things which are easily verifiable that it’s hard to totally keep track. However, the latest falsehoods from the president pertain to the costs of gas in America, as documented by Breitbart News.

Biden’s Version of Events on Gas Costs and More

On Thursday, the president flat-out lied when he alleged that gas was more than $5.00 per gallon when he first came into office.

In reality, $2.39 was the average cost of gas before Biden came into office and ruined US energy independence, a decision that forced gas prices to spike.

Biden continued to lie when moving onto inflation and saying that this, too, has gone down. On the current president’s watch, inflation is actually at an 8.2% rise, compared to where it stood in 2021.

The president later claimed wages have gone up; though, in truth, wages have been constantly plummeting for the past 17 months in a row.

Biden’s outright dishonesty is astounding, since there is clear data on the books to prove what he’s saying isn’t true. The only likely scenario is the president was counting on Americans to take his word at face value and not look up this information for themselves.

Never-ending Lies

If the president was truly serious about revitalizing the economy as he pretends to be, he could take measures to ensure that inflation and gas costs decrease, while wages go up.

Though this would involve lowering spending, getting out of the way of domestic energy production, and being fiscally responsible.

Biden, of his own free will, isn’t going to do this. He’d rather lie to Americans about what’s really going on than be honest and change his polices that are clearly to the detriment of this country.

Social media users, on Thursday, slammed the president for being dishonest about where gas prices and other parts of the economy stand. Though dishonesty is par for the course for Biden, it’s still an amazement to see him lie so brazenly and expect everyone to go along with it.

What do you think about Joe Biden directly lying about the prices of gas when all evidence disproves what he’s saying? Let us know in the comments area if you believe gas prices will ever go down with the current administration in office.
