Gasoline prices fell 10.4 cents over the past week, marking the third straight weekly drop in gasoline prices.
It fell for the third straight week, down 10.4 cents from a week earlier to $4.78 a gallon, according to GasBuddy data, which is based on more than 11 million individual price reports covering more than 150,000 gas stations across the country. The national average was down 7.1 cents from a month ago and $1.66 a gallon higher than a year ago. The national average diesel price fell 6.3 cents last week to $5.72 a gallon.
The media no longer talks about gasoline prices
Earlier in the summer, the media was slamming gasoline prices. However, once the price started to drop, the coverage disappeared. The consistent pattern of corporate media is that they are only interested in bad news.
They have made up their minds on Biden and his administration. The media’s perception of this White House is always looking for the negative. It’s a particularly troublesome approach after they’ve spent four years taking Trump’s denials at face value and giving equal weight to facts and truth.
Gasoline prices have a long way to go to get back to where they were before the surge, but falling prices are not unrelated to improving prospects for the Democratic midterm elections.
That’s good news for the country, even if the corporate media has zero interest in covering it.
