During Biden’s tenure, Trump decided to use all kinds of false figures when he discussed the price of gas. “We were $1.87 a gallon for gasoline, but now it’s five, six, seven, or even eight dollars, and it’s gonna get really bad.”
In reality, the level of falseness in this claim is so high, it’s worth classifying it as inaccurate. As the price of a gallon of usual gas did fall to $1.87 (and even lower), while the Covid-19 pandemic continued in 2020, the national average for regular gas on Donald Trump’s last days in the office was MUCH higher – $2.393 per gallon (data that has been provided by the American Automobile Association).
It’s true that there might be some remote gas stations out there where the prices are higher than what we should consider as the national average, but even then, it’s lower than what he claimed.
