There are reports of gas stations across the US running out of gas and some stations are simply leaving notes on their pumps that the station is dry, the Western Journal reports.
This gas and oil shortage is, of course, leading to higher gas prices.
The American Automobile Association stated that the average price of a gallon of gasoline is now at record levels, sitting at $4.567US a gallon as of Wednesday.
And along that theme, some stations are even reprogramming their pumps to include a “double-digit’ price for a gallon of gas.
The Western Journal reports:
A 76 Gas Station in Auburn, Washington, recently reprogrammed its pumps for double digits in anticipation of higher gas prices. The current rate of increase could put gas prices over $10 a gallon in the state. […]
In the Washington Tri-Cities of Kennewick, Pasco and West Richland, customers driving up to the pumps are finding notes saying the station is totally dry — some offering only diesel, The Post Millennial reported.
Meanwhile, President Joe Biden, blinded by his climate change extremist agenda, recently canceled a massive sale of oil and gas leases in the US. READ: Biden cancels massive oil and gas lease sale
This is on top of earlier decisions, which included signing an executive order on his first day in office pausing oil and gas leases on federal land, and then later canceling the Keystone pipeline that would have brought in oil from Canada.
Of course, President Biden blames Russia for the oil shortage.
