Karine Jean Pierre was selected as press secretary for the Democrat Joe Biden. She has been a divisive figure in American politics due to the fact that she was openly promoted not on the basis of her abilities, but on the basis of the color of her skin and the type of sexual relationships she chose to engage in, creating precisely the type of situation the left has always claimed to despise.
Nonetheless, the Press Secretary has had a horrifying job of attempting to make Biden appear legitimate to the American media, who have been bombarding her with real questions about the many crimes, lies, and hoaxes of the Biden regime.
A recent number one hit by Pierre is about the price of gasoline, which every petroleum purchaser knows better than she does.
Karine Jean-Pierre claims gas prices are down by $1.20 "from last summer to this summer."

A simple Google search on petroleum prices reveals Pierre’s deception:
According to the prominent gas price website GasBuddy, the price of a gallon of gasoline could increase by 50 cents to $1 over the next few days.
According to a report from the U.S. Energy Information Administration, this is happening as the nation recovers from previously increased petroleum prices just before Labor Day. On August 28, retail gasoline prices increased by 22 cents per gallon as a result of production decreases by Saudi Arabia and OPEC+ members, low U.S. inventories, and Northeast refinery maintenance.
According to AAA, the average price of gasoline in Missouri as of September 7 is $3.52, which is approximately 28 cents less than the national average.
“A refinery that goes down has contractual obligations to supply certain volumes of gasoline to stations. If an unexpected outage happens, the refinery that goes down suddenly may not have enough supply to meet its obligations and has to find another refinery to buy from,” said Patrick De Haan, GasBuddy head of petroleum analysis. “This can push prices up considerably, as a refinery could be a very large buyer.”
The AAA cites OPEC+’s cuts among the reasons for the increased price.
“Higher crude oil prices is largely to blame for the increase as crude oil accounts for about 60% of the overall price of gasoline,” said Nick Chabarria, AAA spokesperson.
And why is all of that happening? Because of her boss, Joe Biden:
My Administration is canceling all remaining oil and gas leases issued under the last administration in the Arctic Refuge and proposing to protect 13 million acres in the Western Arctic.
There's more to do, but we’re taking action to meet the moment for future generations.
