The MSM finally reveals what I’ve been harping on for months. Americans fill up their gas tanks every week. Consumers have paid the highest average price for gasoline in history in 2012. The second highest price in history was paid last year. How does this jive with the bullshit being spewed about America having 100 years of supply and becoming energy independent any day now? If our usage is going down and our supply is supposedly soaring, how could prices keep going up? It’s because the MSM and the government are lying to you. We burn 19 million barrels per day and we import 11 million of those barrels. We are not swimming in supply. It is a storyline proliferated by those in power to keep you sedated and calm. If you need a refresher on the truth about gas prices, click here:
Fiscal cliff at the pump: Gasoline prices hit record average in 2012
Gasoline prices are poised to turn in their highest average price for a given year in 2012, as drivers faced a fiscal cliff of sorts at the pump.
“Gas prices in 2012 are likely to be the most expensive ever on an annual basis,” said Michael Green of the AAA.
With just a little more than a month left in the year, the national average in 2012 is $3.63 a gallon, ahead of the earlier record of $3.51 a gallon in 2011, Green said on Tuesday.
Wednesday’s national average of $3.415 a gallon is about 12.4 cents less than a month ago but 12 cents more than a year ago, according to the AAA Daily Fuel Gauge Report.
It costs less to fill up in recent weeks. The average price of gas in November is on track to be at its lowest level since July, Green noted. Average gas prices have dropped by 45 cents since Sept. 14, the day before much of the United States began the transition to winter-blend gasoline.
The national average price of gasoline has broken a daily record high for 100 consecutive days and for 214 days overall this year, Green said.
While U.S. residents face higher taxes and government cutbacks if the fiscal cliff kicks in next year, the price of gasoline has already been sticking it to consumers.
