Biden’s strategic ‘political’ reserve should not be used to lower gas prices: Mike Sommers
American Petroleum Institute President and CEO Mike Sommers weighs in on the Biden administration’s plan to refill the Strategic Petroleum Reserve at $70 a barrel on ‘Mornings with Maria.’
Americans are now paying less for gas than they were at this time a year ago, according to data released Thursday by AAA.
As of Dec. 8, the national average cost of a gallon of regular gas is $3.33, down one cent from the same date in 2021.
The new average price is also 47 cents less than what it cost a month ago, when it was $3.80 per gallon.
However, prices of mid-grade, premium and diesel fuel remain higher than what Americans were paying last year.
