On Sunday, Twitter users reported on a tweet issued by US President Joe Biden regarding US fuel prices.
Biden’s tweet drew attention to the fact that this is less than what the average consumer sees at gas stations.
“Currently the most popular price at gas stations across the country is $3.19 per gallon… this is progress,” Biden wrote in a tweet.
Now the most common price at gas stations across the country is $3.19 per gallon. This is progress.

And the price Biden mentioned in his tweet is irrelevant, since the average price per gallon (a gallon equals 3.78 liters) is $3.8 as of November 6, 2022.
This is at least the second tweet since Elon Musk took over a week ago.
Last week, the White House deleted a tweet attributed to Biden about an increase in Social Security checks for the elderly after many observers suggested that the increase was the result of rising inflation, which has been one of his administration’s biggest problems this year.
Twitter later added context below the tweet, noting that the increase was due to annual cost-of-living adjustments under a 1972 law that linked automatic benefit adjustments to the consumer price index, a key measure of inflation.
