(The Post Millennial) – On Thursday, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee posted a graph to Twitter celebrating what appeared to be a decrease in gas prices over a couple weeks in November. That price decreased just two cents per gallon.
“Thanks, @JoeBiden,” the post from the DCCC reads. Attached is a graph that shows the gas price starting at $3.40 per gallon on an undated day, presumably one week before November 22.
On November 22, the gas price had dropped to $3.395 per gallon, and on November 29, it had fallen to around $3.38 per gallon.
Twitter users were quick to judge their post, pointing out the misleading graph, and sarcastically praising the president for the extra two cents.
It was pointed out that gas prices, though dropping 2 cents over the last two weeks, are up over one dollar from the year prior. According to statistics from GasBuddy, the average gas price on December 8 was around $2.15 per gallon.
The post struck a similar vein as one made by the Biden Administration over the summer, which celebrated the cost of a 4th of July cookout being 16 cents cheaper than the year before.
Planning a cookout this year? Ketchup on the news. According to the Farm Bureau, the cost of a 4th of July BBQ is down from last year. It’s a fact you must-hear(d). Hot dog, the Biden economic plan is working. And that’s something we can all relish. pic.twitter.com/7h9qLauIbC
