What if your nightmare wasn’t actually a dream at all?
What if it was actually real life?
There’s no waking up to get away from America’s outrageous gas prices.
Prices at the pump continue to climb, setting yet another all-time record on June 2.
Compared to the previous day, the $4.67 price tag was a $.04 increase.
Compared to the previous week, it was an $.11 increase.
Compared to the previous month, it was an $.52 rise.
There is ZERO relief in sight, either. Things are only going to get worse.
Shockingly, the American Automobile Association is predicting that these prices under $5 are actually “the calm before the storm.”
AAA predicts the average price for a gallon of gas in America to hit $6.00 before the end of Summer 2022.
Don’t worry though, the Department of Energy is staying out of the issue. They’ve got more important things to worry about, like advertising that they fly colorful flags.

The tweet read “Pride. This month. Next month. Always.”
What Americans read was “Rising gas prices. This month. Next month. Always.”
