Gas is up 30 percent nationwide and will continue to rise in price, according to The Western Journal.
Gas prices have grown further than $3 a gallon in nine states just over the weekend.
Analysts believe $4-per-gallon of gas is likely.
Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries recently;y announced that it would keep its oil production cuts for another month despite the increasing demand for gasoline.
If Joe Biden and Democrats in Congress enact policies that would affect the use of nonrenewable energy gas prices could become unbearably high.
Myron Ebell of the Competitive Enterprise Institute’s Center for Energy and Environment stated that liberal policies to fight climate change could encourage people to transition to electric vehicles.
“It’s also in their policy interest to have high gasoline prices … to convince people to get off gas-powered cars and transition to electric vehicles,” Ebell said.
“They really do want high gas prices, in a way, but they have to balance that against the political damage done when gas prices skyrocket.”
