The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) got absolutely savaged by critics for blustering that President Joe Biden caused gas prices to tumble a laughable 2 cents a gallon, despite global oil costs freefalling over the new Omicron variant’s emergence.

“Thanks, @JoeBiden,” the DCCC posted a chart that displayed gas prices falling in paltry half-cent declines from Nov. 22-29, which resulted in a mere 2 cent reduction.
Twitter gleefully trashed the display as “parody-level misleading” and “beyond satire,” in a series of replies that should have whoever gave approval to post the graph over at the DCCC fearing for their job.
Rep. Mike Johnson (R-LA) handily responded with a chart of the last 12 months in average gas prices, which showed costs surging from $2.14 a gallon last year to $3.42 under the current administration. “Thanks, @JoeBiden,” he cheekily captioned the post.
“Gas prices are up more than 50% since Dec 2020 and Dems are demanding you thank them. Here are TWO CENTS: After you delete your tweet, restart Keystone, start tapping more into our own domestic energy supply, and stop fast-tracking foreign pipelines abroad,” Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) helpfully suggested.
The left-wing media didn’t even try to put a partisan spin on the graph, with CNN fact-checker Daniel Dale calling the DCCC’s post “parody-level misleading-with-axes stuff,” and Washington Post fact-checker Glenn Kessler piling on that the graph is “ridiculous and embarrassing. Whoever is making this stuff at @dccc needs a lesson in chart-making and statistics.”
One of the more clever responses came out of conservative commentator Charlie Kirk, who tweeted, “It’s now 2 cents cheaper per gallon for Democrats to Gaslight us into thinking everything is great in Joe Biden’s America.”
“This reminds me of high school when I’d double-space paragraphs to make my papers seem longer,” snarked Fox News’ Joseph A. Wulfsohn.
Rep. Mary Miller (R-Ill.) cracked, “I’ll combine the two cents I saved on gas with that 16 cents I saved on my 4th of July BBQ and put a down payment on a pack of gum. Thanks, Brandon.”
National average gas prices are $3.37 as of Friday, up from $2.16 the same time last year.
Don’t blame me. I voted for Trump .
Right there with you, sister.
Don’t blame me, I voted for Trump and will again!
What a bunch of clowns we have in D.C. So when I go to fill up the car the next time, I should be thanking Nancy and Joe for all the hard work they are doing for us little people out here in America. What can I do with that $.36 cents. Wow this one might keep me up all night. Maybe I will put it towards my natural gas bill that is increasing by 50% this winter. Clowns real clowns, and what the younger Dem’s having coming up in the ranks is far worst.
I’m a trucker. I get more per gallon with my rewards cards.
Mike, that’s a great way of putting it! Those evil wall street banks give more back on a rewards card! LOL That’s got to totally confuse the “Woke” crowd!
We are well past the debate and discussion stage. Dems are all liars and crooks. Low of the low. Other action must be taken.
