Anti-Biden Stickers Appear on Gas Pumps Across U.S: 'I Did That!'
Americans angry at soaring gas prices
Stickers of show Joe Biden pointing a finger with the caption “I did that!” are appearing on gas pumps across the United States as gas prices soar.
The Boston Herald reported in November that the decals began surfacing last year and went viral
Shortly before the Herald’s article, the national gas price average was around $3.40.
The national average for a gallon of gas is now $4.32 as the average price break records for five consecutive days.
The Biden administration is blaming Russia for sky-high prices, but Americans are not buying it.
Motorist Vincent Williams spoke with The New York Post, saying he could only put $15 in his tank.
“I don’t go for the Democrats. They make it seem like they got the backs of minority people, but in reality, they’re just in it for themselves,” said Williams, a black man.
“The rise in gas prices is B.S.”
Biden deserves blame for high gas prices. Not because he banned Russian oil, but because his administration refuses to unleash the full energy potential America has to offer. https://t.co/TQg08vPyCG— Dan K. Eberhart (@DanKEberhart) March 8, 2022
Another motorist from the Upper West Side named Harold Frost also blasted the high prices.
"I just know everything he’s been doing since he took office has been going downhill. Bring Trump back,” Frost told the Post.
"My car has been parked the whole week because of this.
"I took the train, but it’s dangerous now on the train. You gotta be careful," he added.
An assistant gas station manager in Alabama told WAAYTV that he is constantly scraping the stickers off pumps.
“I take off 5 or 6 a day from our different pumps,” said Perry Cagle, who works at an Exxon in Athens.
He added he sees more stickers as gas prices climb.
“I got one here, it’s the ‘I did that,’ and then they put it by the pump, and it’s supposed to be that Joe, President Biden, is causing the gas to go up,” he told WAAYTV.
Javier Estrada Ovalles, who sells his own version of “I did that” stickers on his website automotiveanarchyco.com, told Slate that an uptick in business has coincided with rising gas prices.
“But in this last month alone, once the prices of the gas really started going up, I started getting bulk sales twice or three times more than it was before,” Ovalles explained, adding that he used to sell 20-30 individual orders daily, but the number has jumped to 80 per day.
“Me personally, I’m not either left or right or Democrat or Republican, nothing like that. It’s just whatever sells is pretty much what’s gonna go on the shelf,” he told Slate.
