What are gas prices in the US and each state? Today 25 June 2022
An energy expert has warned of the potential for “apocalyptic” gas prices, as President Biden calls for a federal gas tax holiday to ease the strain on US drivers.
On Friday, an energy expert warned that the Unites States could witness “apocalyptic” gas prices if domestic oil refineries are affected by hurricane season. Speaking to Fox Business, OPIS’ Tom Kloza said: “Unfortunately, positive signs between now and… the middle of August may be just overwhelmed if we have an active tropical season. I think for gasoline, we go back above five, and…apocalyptic numbers come into play with hurricanes.”
Earlier this week, President Biden called on Congress to implement a three-month federal gas tax holiday, in a bid to ease the financial burden on American drivers. “President Biden understands that a gas tax holiday alone will not, on its own, relieve the run up in costs that we’ve seen,” a White House statement said on Wednesday. “But the President believes that at this unique moment when the war in Ukraine is imposing costs on American families, Congress should do what it can to provide working families breathing room.”
