Trump Says Skyrocketing Gas Prices Coming, Will Be Even Worse Than Big Tax Increase

By

As gas prices rise across the nation since he left office, former President Donald Trump warned Americans on Tuesday that things are about to get much worse.

Trump was interviewed by Maria Bartiromo of Fox News.

According to the American Automobile Association, the average price of a gallon of regular, unleaded gasoline was $2.879 per gallon on Wednesday, up 14 percent from February.

A year ago, the average price was $2.237, which means gas prices have risen 28.7 percent since March 2020. The price had fallen as low as $2.11 around Election Day, when President Joe Biden was elected to the White House.

During his interview, Trump said the Biden agenda is bad for the economy.

“We were the envy of the world, and then when we got hit by the as I call it the China virus, COVID, it was, it obviously went down along with every other economy,” he said.

“And then we were the first to get it back up,” the former president said, noting that stocks had risen above pre-pandemic levels during his administration.

“So it was incredible what we were able to do,” Trump said. “If you look at the jobs numbers, we had the all-time highest number of jobs; we had 160 million people working. We were never close to that,” he said, noting that segments of the population often left behind in the economy were on their way up.

“Now, when I look at what’s happening, we were energy independent. Very shortly, we will no longer be energy independent.”
