It’s still 2$ a gallon more than when Biden took office and diesel is $4 more a gallon. A lot of the recent drop is because people can’t afford to fill up their cars and buy groceries.

Hogwash. We just experienced one of the largest travel weekends in recent years. 54 million Americans traveled at least 50 miles over the holiday by car and airlines were packed. Furthermore, Black Friday retail sales set a record of $9.2 billion in sales. Doesn’t sound much like doom and gloom to me.
