The average U.S. price of a gallon of gas is $3.33, down $1.69 from a year ago. This is largely a function of the cost of oil, as gas prices always are. But it would be nice if gas prices weren’t used as cudgels for political gain. There’s been a desire to compare gas prices under President Trump and Vice President Joe Biden. Gas prices under Biden were $2.31 per gallon, compared with $3.91 under Trump, according to the Energy Information Administration. This isn’t terrible, even by historical standards; it’s better than going down.
