As Gas Prices Soar, Biden Considers DESPERATE Rebate Plan

With Biden-flation continuing to run rampant from coast to coast, Americans are paying more for everyday items across the board. ¬†Food and energy have both taken major price hikes, and there’s just no telling what back-to-school shopping is going to look like in the fall.

But perhaps the single most troubling indication of this economic turmoil has been at the gas pump, where the national average for a gallon of regular reached an all time high over $5.00 just days ago.

The trouble has President Biden considering some drastic maneuvers.

President Joe Biden signaled Monday that he would be open to sending Americans gas rebate cards to help offset soaring gas prices in the U.S.

Speaking to reporters in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, the president said the rebate cards are “part of what we’re considering, that’s part of the whole operation,” according to CNN. Biden also mentioned the possibility of temporarily suspending the federal gasoline tax.

“I hope to have a decision based on the data I’m looking for by the end [of] the week,” Biden said, referring to the potential gas tax holiday.

The Biden administration has been facing heavy pressure to help alleviate Americans’ pain at the pump amid Russia’s war in Ukraine and surging inflation, which hit a 40-year high in May. On Monday, the national average for U.S. gas prices was $4.98 per gallon, according to AAA. Prices peaked on June 14, at $5.016 per gallon, Axios reported, citing an earlier AAA average.

Not everyone was on board, however.

Last week, multiple news outlets reported that Biden was mulling a new economic stimulus plan in which he would send gas rebate cards to Americans. However, the idea is not without criticism. Some officials reportedly worried that recipients would use the cards’ funds for purchases other than gas. Additionally, there were concerns that ongoing chip shortages would cause problems for card production.

Joe Biden’s ineffectual presidency has been the bane of the Democratic Party of late, and there’s no telling whether or not he’d actually follow through on this or any other potential economic action.
