Joe Biden was mocked online for touting falling gas prices — although they are still nearly twice as high as when he took office.

Interestingly, when gas prices spiked, they were dubbing it the “Putin Price Hike,” yet Biden managed to take credit for the decrease when prices decreased.

The New York Post reported:

​”​For American families looking for a little more breathing room, these savings matter,”​ the president said in a post on Monday.

The tweet included a graphic showing, “At current prices, the average driver will spend $35 less per month for one person [sic] or $70 less per month for a family with two cars than they would if gas prices stayed at their peak.”​

The tweet appears to have since been deleted.

On Friday, Joe Biden touted average gas prices of $3.99 a gallon.

100 Percent Fed Up reported today, Biden will use the strong job numbers that will give the president and his supporters ammunition to argue the economy is not in, or on the verge of, a recession, despite the U.S. experiencing two straight quarters of negative economic growth.

While the overall job figures look encouraging, the underlying reality is that most Americans work two full-time jobs. Families are looking for additional sources of income to weather historically high inflation.

Fewer people today are working multiple jobs. That sounds like a good thing and contradictory to the earlier statement; unfortunately, according to federal labor data, more Americans than ever hold two full-time jobs, amounting to more than 70 hours a week.

Watch the video as Biden brags about the jobs report and lower gas prices:

The following was posted to Twitter on Biden’s account today:

Gas prices are now down by more than 90 cents a gallon. That’s over seven straight weeks of prices declining.

Some critics pointed out the hypocrisy of Biden taking credit for falling gas prices even as his administration blamed others, including Russian President Vladimir Putin, when they spiked, dubbing it the “Putin Price Hike.”

RNC Posted the following on Twitter:

Top Biden energy adviser Amos Hochstein absurdly claims it’s “just factually not true” that gas prices were on the rise even before Russia invaded Ukraine.

When Joe Biden took office, gas was at $2.39/gal. On Feb. 24 — the day Russia invaded Ukraine — gas was $3.54/gal.

WATCH:

On Friday, Fox News reporter Peter Doocy asked White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre why Joe Biden was bragging about gas prices.

Peter Doocy asked Karine Jean-Pierre why Joe Biden bragged about $4/gallon gas.

“Why is the President bragging today about gas prices?” Doocy queried.

“Because it’s gone down, “Karine Jean-Pierre said.

Doocy: “It’s still $1.72 higher than when he took office.

“Karine Jean-Pierre replied, “It has come down in a way that we have not seen…in over a decade.”

Scott Pressler’s response on Twitter is on point:

Your bragging about gas being double what it was 2 years ago when you caused the gas prices to go up is so asinine & out of touch with reality.

 

According to AAA, the average gallon of gas on Monday was ​$4.35, nearly twice the $2.37 a gallon it was when Biden entered the White House in January 2021.

AAA said gas prices peaked at $5.01 nationally on June 14.
