This week gas prices have reached new record highs, with the average price at the pump reaching $4.97 per gallon Thursday, something that Senator John Kennedy is not willing to overlook. 

On Tuesday, the Louisiana Senator took a swipe at Biden and the economy, expressing his comical response to the surging fuel cost across the nation while appearing on Fox News’s Jesse Watters Primetime.

The average price for a gallon of regular gas in the United States is the highest recorded average in the nation’s history, almost $2.50 higher than the average price a year ago.
