Americans in the Garden State sounded off on gas prices after President Biden said the surging costs are part of "an incredible transition."
"I don’t believe a word he says," one woman, Theresa, told Fox News. "He’s been in the business for 40-something years and hasn’t done too much."
"Start drilling again. Do something," she continued. "We can't be the
only ones trying to save the world. If we're getting our oil from
somewhere let it be right here at home."
"I’m out here walking around 'cause I can’t afford the gas," Wayne, who walked to the gas station for groceries, said.
Richard, who drives a small truck, said he pays around $40 in gas a day.
Gas prices have "almost doubled since Joe Biden got in office,"
Richard, of Jersey City, told Fox News. "It’s been horrible."
"How do you get back and forth?" he said.
Theresa, a California resident visiting the Garden State, told Fox
News: "This should not be allowed whatsoever. It’s taking a lot of
money out of people’s pockets."
California had the highest state average at $6.07 on Tuesday, according
"People aren’t doing as many things," Theresa said. "It’s less money that they can use on, you know, spending money on their kids, their
houses, their food."
