VIDEO: White House Press Sec Says $4 Gas Is ‘Breathing Room’ for Americans

$4 gas is cause for celebration, according to the White House.

White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre defended the Biden administration presiding over extremely high gas prices on Friday, noting that $4 gas leaves Americans with “breathing room.”

During a White House press briefing, Jean-Pierre was pressed on the nation’s high gas prices by Fox News reporter Peter Doocy, who asked her “why is the president bragging today about gas prices?”

“Because it’s gone down,” Jean-Pierre said. Doocy noted that while gas prices have gone down from $5 per gallon to over $4 per gallon, the price is still $1.72 higher than when Joe Biden assumed office. Jean-Pierre attempted to deflect from Doocy’s point, insisting that Americans should be happy that the price “trajectory” went down to $4 per gallon from $5 “in a way we haven’t seen” in over ten years.

“It has gone, it has come down in a way that we haven’t seen, its trajectory coming down, in over a decade,” she told Doocy, who cleverly retorted, “It’s still over 4 dollars a gallon though, is that good?”

“You want to talk to a nurse, a teacher, or a firefighter if having that little bit of breathing room doesn’t matter to them,” Jean-Pierre said.

“Are nurses, teachers, and firefighters saying gas prices are ‘only 4 dollars and 11 cents, this is great!’?” Doocy asked.

“I’m saying that, I’m saying that, that, that, even that little bit of breathing room matters to families, especially during the summer when people are traveling,” the White House Press Secretary replied.

Last week, Biden Economic Adviser Council member Jared Bernstein said $4.30 for a gallon of gas is “positive news” for Americans who are feeling pain at the pump while speaking to liberal CNN host Kate Bolduan.

During the segment, Bernstein explained that “there’s also positive news that we should not overlook. I mean, the price at the pump is now $4.30 a gallon.”

    I am making $92/hour telecommuting. I never imagined that it was honest to goodness yet my closest companion is earning $16k a month by working on a laptop, that was truly astounding for me, she prescribed for me to attempt it simply.

    I make more then $12,000 a month online. It’s enough to comfortably replace my old jobs income, especially considering I only work about 11 to 12 hours a week from home. I was amazed how easy it was after I tried it…

    The White House and congressional democrats are destroying the country with their deficit spending and green policies. Thanks is the opposite of what they deserve.
