With the Start of Summer Driving Season, AFP Rolls Back Gas Prices to What They Were Before Bidenomics

May 20, 2024 by AFP

Gas Rollback Events Spotlight What Prices at the Pump Could Be With Policies That Unleash Energy Abundance

Washington, DC – With the national average for a gallon of gas hovering near $3.59 thanks to Bidenomics, Americans for Prosperity is hosting a series of events across the country this week to remind Americans what prices at the pump could be with policies that end President Biden’s war on energy and unleash America’s energy abundance.

Beginning today, in the lead up to the summer driving season, AFP is hosting a series of events in communities across the country to roll back gas prices to what they were before Bidenomics. AFP will partner with local gas stations across dozens of states to temporarily drop the price of gas to $2.38 per gallon – what it was the day Biden took office – and show Americans what gas prices could look like if we remove barriers standing in the way of an abundant supply of American energy.

Under Bidenomics, gas prices are sky high—and it’s making the American dream unaffordable. On President Biden’s watch, the national average price of a gallon of gas skyrocketed from $2.38 to an average of $5.06 per gallon, the highest prices on record. Prices currently remain at a steep $3.59 per gallon and are costing Americans significantly more than when Biden took office. Overall energy prices have risen over 41% in the last four years, and the average household is paying $11,400 more each year just to maintain the same quality of life.

AFP’s Vice President of Government Affairs Akash Chougule said:

“Biden’s war on American energy has had disastrous results and Americans are reeling from high gas prices going into the summer. From shutting down the Keystone Pipeline to banning energy leases on federal land, Joe Biden’s top-down policies have stifled our country’s energy resources and made even things like a family road trip more expensive. This week, we are spotlighting what gas prices could be with policies that unleash our country’s energy potential. A better future is possible if we prioritize reforms to remove energy barriers and lower costs for all Americans.”
