This week marked a new record that nobody wanted to see broken. According to Triple A, the average price of a gallon of gas topped double the price that it was when Joe Biden took office less than 17 months ago.

How much higher can it go? Apparently, the sky’s the limit. As of Saturday morning, the average price nationwide was $4.81 a gallon, up a nickel just since Friday. Predictions are that it could reach $5 by June 17th. In California, the average price is $6.297. And the highest prices in America are in Mono County, California, where drivers are paying an average of $7.05 a gallon. Or as we might be calling that a year from now, “the good old days.”
