AAA Lists Most Expensive States for Gas: 9 of Top 10 Are Run by DemocratsDavid Hawkins March 8, 2022According to AAA here are the most expensive states for gas as of Monday:The American Automobile Association (AAA) has listed the top-ten most expensive states to buy gas, nine of which are run by Democrats.According to AAA, the national average for a gallon of gas is $4.06 and rising.The average is now 45 cents more than a week ago, 62 cents more than a month ago, and $1.30 more than a year ago.And it promises to get worse as the West debates banning Russian oil.AAA has released a list of the ten states with the most expensive gas prices and most are blue states.The only red state in the top ten is Alaska, which surprisingly comes in at number 6.Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis at GasBuddy, said:“There are few words to describe the unprecedented rise in gasoline prices over the last week, with massive spikes coast to coast in both gasoline and diesel prices, as oil prices jump to their highest since 2008. ...California: $5.34Hawaii: $4.69Nevada: $4.59Oregon: $4.51Washington: $4.44Alaska: $4.39Illinois: $4.30Connecticut: $4.28New York: $4.26Pennsylvania: $4.23

“The average price for a gallon of gasoline in the U.S. hit a new record high of $4.104 on Monday,” reports Fox News, “surpassing the previous record of $4.103 set in 2008 according to data from GasBuddy.”Using a different measure, The Wall Street Journal adds: “The national average price for regular gasoline hit $4.173 a gallon, surpassing the previous record of $4.114 reached in July 2008, AAA said early Tuesday. The price was 15% higher than a week earlier and 21% higher than a month earlier, the automobile association’s figures showed.”Let’s add a bit of analysis to that news: Joe Biden’s battle against fossil fuels on behalf of his party’s ecofascist agenda drove gas prices higher than they’ve been since Biden was Barack Obama’s sidekick in the same fight.
Perhaps you’ve noticed: Joe Biden is president, the world is a mess, inflation is through the roof, and gasoline prices are at record highs. But never fear: Pete Buttigieg has the solution.“Clean transportation can bring significant cost savings for the American people as well,” said the pay-to-play former mayor of South Bend, Indiana. “Last month, we announced a $5 billion investment to build out a nationwide electric vehicle charging network so that people from rural to suburban to urban communities can all benefit from the gas savings of driving an EV.”That’s right. Rural, suburban, urban — it doesn’t matter. Everyone can benefit by simply purchasing an electric vehicle. Whether you’re a family farmer with an old F-150, a suburban mom with a used minivan, or a poor college kid getting to and from campus in a beat-up Accord, all you need is one of Mayor Pete’s coal-charged, battery-powered beauties. Oh, and around $56,437.
Welcome to the controlled demolition of American energy, or as our ruling class alludes to it, the “energy transition.”Since the beginning of the Biden presidency, there have been competing forces in the White House going back and forth over the energy future for America. On one side, you had somewhat rational minds that recognized the necessity of continuing to produce reliable energy in America. On the other side, there are the forces for the regression of human civilization, arguing that fossil fuels were destroying Gaia and therefore humans need to be made to sacrifice for the supposed health of the planet. ...Well, for the past several years, the ruling elites have been getting together in Davos, Paris, and elsewhere, and deciding, without your consent, that removing reliable energy from our lives is absolutely necessary to combat the “climate crisis.” They claim this “crisis” — which just so happens to result in the massive accumulation of centralized power — is the most important issue facing the world today. Virtually every powerful western government has embraced the need for “accelerating” away from reliable energy and into unreliable “clean” resources, such as solar and wind farms. Joe Biden and his handlers don’t want to restore energy independence to America and alleviate the suffering that is being experienced by millions of Americans. They can’t do that, because it would jeopardize their “energy transition.” Simply put, the people in charge right now are participating in a controlled demolition of America’s reliable energy resources. And the wellbeing of the American people is being sacrificed for this agenda.Policies and mottos like “Build Back Better,” the “Green New Deal” and the “energy transition” all allude to the eco radicalism that the “free world” seeks to impose upon its citizens. Most of these slogans and ideas are disbursed by the World Economic Forum, which serves as the narrative shop and think tank for these leaders.Meanwhile, the Davos climate suicide pact is more than welcomed by adversarial governments in Russia and China, which are more than happy to monopolize reliable energy and improve their geopolitical standing on the world stage. In fact, perhaps the primary motive for Russia’s invasion of Ukraine comes via Moscow’s energy monopoly over Europe. Our newfound record energy prices should serve as a wake up call for what these energy transitionists have planned not only for Americans, but for the world as a whole.
So glad I got a Tesla last month.I've already saved nearly $300 in gas over the last 6 weeks driving 1,700 miles.
Not a knock on getting a Tesla, everyone has their preference. But you're still paying the electric and it's a lot harder to track (accurately) than pumping fuel.
They say people stopped buying Teslas in LA because the charging booths got too mobbed for waiting times. The performance of electric cars in cold weather drops off a lot.
I wouldn't get an EV if I had to rely on public charging. You really need a place to charge at home for it to make sense.

But you're still paying the electric and it's a lot harder to track (accurately) than pumping fuel. Either way, $3,500 each year saved, subtract electric and it's closer to $1k, but you likely bought a $40k+ car versus say a ICE sedan that runs $25-30k. Takes 5 years to negate the savings using electric. There are plenty of models out there that would cost less purchase price wise and compete MPG $$$ amount. I get they're fun to drive, but they're not cheaper or better for the environment. I like them, but EV's are still 5-10 years from "actually" being efficient. Technically they cause more environmental damage as they're not driving electric cranes and servicing power lines with 10 ton truc...

I am driving it because it is the fastest and most fun car I can afford
@socal2Which model did you get?
It really makes sense in California where I live: a 15 gallon fillup costs about $90 today and I can recharge 300+ miles for under $20.
I have an "EV Plan" with my electric company (SDGE) and only pay $.10/kwh when I charge in my garage at night during off peak
You are so lucky. After I read your comment I looked up the EV Plan at PG&E here in San Jose, to see about charging our plug-in hybrid.The PG&E website offers 24 cents per kwhr for off peak charging IF we agree to pay 45 cents for "shoulder" and 56 cents for "peak" under their EV2A plan, or 24 cents offpeak and 36 cents / 60 cents on EV-B plan. There is no 10 cents per kwhr for off peak, and for the privilege of 24 cents per kwhr charging we must agree to pay higher for other electricity we use.
The Saudis and Emirates flat-out refused to even take Joe's call to discuss oil production increase. We should not forget that next time they run to us for weapons.
