Gas Prices Double under Biden, Hit $10 in Parts of California
Average gallon now costs $4.81, according to AAA
As inflation skyrockets in America, gas prices under President Joe Biden are reaching an all-time high causing havoc for working Americans.
Since Biden took office, the price for a gallon has doubled.
At that time, the average gallon of gas ran you $2.39, but as of Saturday, that same gallon now costs $4.81, according to AAA.
In Mendocino, California, a Chevron gas station was seen charging nearly $10 for a gallon of regular gas on Friday.
That price is even up to five cents from Friday alone as Republicans continue to hammer the current administration on the pinch at the pump.
"Joe Biden's war on American energy has forced families across the country to empty their wallets to fill their tanks," Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said in a statement.
Aas prices surged to nearly $10 a gallon in parts of California as costs continue to climb.
As The Daily Mail reported:

The Biden White House has continued to deflect blame, calling the rising prices 'Putin's Price Hike' due to the war in Ukraine.
"Joe Biden's war on American energy has forced families across the country to empty their wallets to fill their tanks," Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said
"Unfortunately, Biden is doubling down on his disastrous agenda because he's not the one paying the price - the American people are," she added.
Meanwhile, the Biden administration has refused to take the blame for inflation.
Earlier this week, Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre continued to try to coin the phrase "Putin's price hike" for increasing stress on Americans' wallets.
"His policies has helped the economy get back on its feet. That's what his policy has, his policies have done," Jean-Pierre said.
"When we talk about the gas prices right now, this is indeed Putin's gas hike…
"We have seen about 60 percent increase in the past several months because of the amassing and his invasion of Ukraine."
Also, this week, the Biden White House cheered recent efforts from The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) to ramp up oil output to refuel the country's refineries - whose stock has reached crisis levels in recent weeks.
The oil coalition on Thursday agreed to boost its output by 648,000 barrels per day (BPD) a month in July and August - rather than the 432,000 officials had previously promised.
Thursday, a US weekly inventory report showed crude stock had fallen by a more-than-expected 5.1 million barrels.
Gasoline inventories have also dropped to dangerous levels.
