U.S. Gas Prices Reach New Record High

The cost of gasoline in the United States continues to skyrocket.  It has now reached a new all-time high of $4.67 per gallon.

According to AAA, that leaves gas prices up by 48 cents in the past month alone. It now costs 32% more to fill up your tank than on the day before Russia invaded Ukraine.

Seven states now average $5 or higher, with Illinois becoming the latest to join that unpopular club, according to AAA. New York and Arizona are just pennies away from the $5 threshold. The average in California now stands at $6.19 a gallon. According to a report by CNN, no states have an average of $4.15 or lower, with George coming in at the lowest at $4.16.

Gasoline and diesel prices continue to surge higher as inflation takes a stronghold of the economy at large. All of the minor and ineffective strategies of the ruling class have failed to bring down the cost of fuel and coupled with the rising prices of food (if any can even be found), Americans are looking at a dire situation by autumn of this year.

The national average for regular gas is now 44 cents higher than on the day President Joe Biden announced the largest-ever release of oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve in late March.

Budget for the increase in prices. Carpool if you can and limit trips out. Saving as much as possible will allow you to put more resources toward some preps. If fuel runs out and food cannot be delivered, you will be better off being as self-sustaining as possible at your own home.
