According to reports, Americans will be forced to pay the highest gasoline prices during any past Thanksgiving holiday ever.
Gasoline tracker GasBuddy noted that the price per gallon is soaring and will be at all all-time holiday high by Nov. 24.
“As Americans prepare to hit the road for Thanksgiving, average gasoline prices will be at their highest seasonal level ever for the weekend according to GasBuddy, the leading fuel savings platform saving North American drivers the most money on gas. The national average is projected to stand at $3.68 on Thanksgiving Day – nearly 30¢ higher than last year, and over 20¢ higher than the previous record of $3.44 set in 2012. But that won’t slow many down, with 20% more Americans planning to hit the road this year,” GasBuddy wrote.
As Big League Politics noted:
Charles Kennedy of OilPrice.com noted that “Despite the record-high average gasoline prices, 20% more Americans plan to travel by car for the holiday weekend, compared to 2021.”
A country like the US, which has such bountiful energy resources, should not be suffering from these types of high energy prices. This is the product of a political class that has erected anti-reliable energy policies that generate higher oil and gas prices, which fall hard on the working class. It’s government regulation, not the free market, that’s causing these problems. There comes a point when intelligent political commentators have to start analyzing things correctly and offering real solutions to our problems.
