Karine Jean-Pierre Takes To Social Media To Defend Biden’s Ongoing Progress To Reduce Gas Prices

by Gee NY

In a social media post, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre has defended President Joe Biden’s efforts to address gas prices.

Jean-Pierre, using the platform X (formerly Twitter), responded to an article that discusses gas prices, highlighting the decline in the national average to $3.12, down $1.90 from its peak after Russia invaded Ukraine in February 2022.

While the prices have decreased over the past month, they remain above the April 2021 national average before rising above $3 per gallon for the first time since 2014.

“Gas prices are down $1.90 from their peak after Putin’s war—and there’s even more relief for Americans in the New Year,” Jean-Pierre wrote on X.

The highest recorded average price of $5.02 per gallon occurred in June 2022, just before the midterm elections, with a recent 6-cent increase marking the first uptick since September.

Hawaii, California, Washington, Nevada, and Oregon currently have the highest prices, while Florida, Texas, Delaware, South Carolina, and Colorado experienced the most significant recent increases.

Jean-Pierre, who assumed the role of press secretary in May 2022, succeeding Jen Psaki, has been active in communicating the Biden administration’s stance on economic issues, including gas prices.
