Despite the fact that Los Angeles has always had sky-high gasoline prices, the new price tags shocked even Californians. According to GasBuddy.com, there are still gas stations within Los Angeles offering $ 4 gasoline, but analysts say prices will skyrocket across the board due to future supply cuts and high demand.

US President Joe Biden realized in the early hours of his presidency that the US position in the oil market was much worse than competitors, including China, Saudi Arabia and Russia, so he canceled the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline, which helped to resume the construction of North Stream 2.

In addition to all of the above, conspiracy theorists explain the rise in prices by a hacker attack on the Texas Colonial Pipeline, completely forgetting that the United States is involved in the Paris Agreement, according to which the entire oil industry will be destroyed in the next 10 years.
California Governor Gavin Newsom has also declared that the state will phase out gas-powered vehicles (and, hence, gas stations) in favor of electric vehicles, banning the sale of gas-powered vehicles by 2035, reports Breitbart.
