Gas prices in the Twin Cities metro area topped $4 last night and continue to climb today. AAA shows the average price per gallon in Minnesota/St Paul is $3.84/gallon. But a short drive around the cities suggests that that figure is lower than what you and I are actually paying.
Rising gas prices stem from the Federal Reserves policy of increasing the money supply to pay for the bloated government that politicians in D.C. wanted in the past couple years. Gas prices are a symptom of this cheap money that was meant to magically fix all of our nation's problems during COVID. Despite the Fed's attempt to fight inflation by increasing interest rates, we're still seeing prices high in gas and groceries.
Unfortunately, the people most affected by these high gas prices are the poor and families who are already struggling.
