U.S. Rep. Debbie Lasko (R-Ariz.) criticized Joe Biden for allowing gas prices to reach record highs.  On Friday, the Arizona Republican noted the average gas price currently stands at $3.44 a gallon, which is the highest since 2014 when Barack Obama was president.

In certain regions, such as California, gas is averaging over $4.30. Lasko pointed out the U.S. achieved energy independence under 45th President Donald Trump. She said abandoning those polices prove Biden stands for America last and is keeping the U.S. reliant on foreign oil.

“Oil prices are rising further as the global energy supply tightness squeezes fuel availability,” said Louise Dickson, senior oil markets analyst at Rystad Energy.

With higher oil prices comes higher prices at the pump, leaving consumers with the highest costs seen in the last seven years.
