‘We feel their pain’: Drivers give thumbs up to Minnesota gas station’s sympathetic sign

President Joe Biden is seeing his approval rating reach lows no president has seen before and chief among his failures are his administration’s policies impacting gas prices.

Even though the president continues to try to push the record high prices off on Vladimir Putin, it doesn’t appear that Americans are buying what Ol’ Joe is selling.

Then again, given that inflation is at a 40-year high, many families could not afford to purchase Biden’s excuse-making if they wanted to.

With the national average gas price recently topping $5 per gallon for the first time EVER, even gas stations are feeling the pain at the pump — at least, a Minnesota  Murphy’s Service Center is. The owner posted a message on the marquee outside the business that read: “We hate our gas prices too.”

Outside of New York City and a few other dense urban areas, the price of gas has a significant impact on the budgets of most American families. With people now paying more than double to fill up their tank under a Democratic president than they did when Donald Trump was in office, the pain is very real. And even urban areas are seeing the consequences in rising prices on most other items, given that the soaring cost of diesel is forcing truckers to up their fees and that cost is passed on to consumers.

Chuck Graff owns the Murphy’s Service Center in St. Anthony and he wanted customers to know that they have his sympathy.

“It’s just kind of our way of letting the customer know that we feel their pain,” Graff told WCCO.

The price of gas in Minnesota is below the national average but has reached a new record-high at $4.76 per gallon, according to the AAA motorist group.

“If you don’t have humor about it, you’re just going to sit there and cry,” customer Kyle Mohs told the CBS affiliate.

After spending $120 to fill up his truck, Mohs added, “There’s nothing they can do about it either, so to pay $5 a gallon of gas, it hurts the wallet, but you have to.”

What Americans can do about the price of gas, which critics insist is being driven up intentionally to force the country to accept the Democratic Party’s “green” agenda, is vote accordingly in November. It remains to be seen just how badly the nation is hurting.

Meanwhile, Biden assures all that he is working on inflation — without mentioning any action to lower gas prices:

And he’s still blaming Putin, as seen on Friday after the Labor Department announced that inflation hit a new four-decade high in May.

“Today I’d like to speak about my top economic priority, fighting inflation,” Biden said from the Port of Los Angeles. “I understand Americans are anxious and they’re anxious.”

“We’ve never seen anything like Putin’s tax on both food and gas,” the president added, ignoring any role he has played here.
