The average price of a gallon of gas has surpassed $5 in nine states, seven of which are run by Democrats, with the national average price soaring this weekend to $4.85, according to the American Automobile Association (AAA).
Motorists in 9 states – Alaska, Arizona, California, Hawaii, Illinois, Michigan, Nevada, Oregon, and Washington – are now paying more than $5 a gallon.
While Alaska and Arizona are Republican-run, the other seven states all have Democrat governors and one mayor:
- California, Gov. Gavin Newsom;
- Oregon, Gov. Janet Brown;
- Washington, Gov. Jay Inslee;
- Hawaii, Gov. David Ige;
- Michigan, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer;
- Nevada, Gov. Steve Sisolak
- Illinois, Gov. J.B. Pritzker
- District of Columbia, Mayor Muriel Bowser
Michigan has seen average gas prices rise by nearly 10 percent in just one week, according to the data.
In California, one Chevron station was charging $9.60 a gallon for regular last week.
$9.45/gal!! Thanks to Matthew for this pic of the Chevron in Mendocino, CA- the most expensive station in the country and the highest price we've recorded. It's over $3/gal higher than the California average and is a definite outlier. #gasprices pic.twitter.com/7AUuxDLCGI— Patrick De Haan ⛽️📊 (@GasBuddyGuy) June 1, 2022
A month ago, the average cost of a gallon of gas across the U.S. was $4.25. A year ago, it was $3.05.

As we noted earlier, an ABC News/Ipsos poll released Sunday found only 37% approve of Biden’s handling of the economy, and even fewer approve of his handling of inflation (28%) and gas prices (27%).
Meanwhile, Biden’s Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg, who seems more interested in ‘racist highways’, complaining about too many white pilots, and the abortion debate, claims that it isn’t fair to blame Joe Biden for higher gas prices despite his previous admission that unaffordable gas prices in the U.S. are part of a deliberate “incredible transition” to green energy.
