During a Sunday airing of CNN’s “Reliable Sources“, Senior Biden advisor Gene Sperling appeared to admit that he personally has no idea what high gas prices feel like amid American’s feeling the pain at the pumps.
According to AAA, the national average of gas per gallon is $4.86. That’s up 25 cents in the past week and 59 cents in the past month. Diesel’s average is $5.64.
Host Brian Stelter told Sperling, “As part of the problem with the coverage with the economy — the people like White House aides, and yes, TV anchors, don’t feel the pinch as much as the average American”.
“Let me put that in a personal way. Do you feel the pinch?” Stelter directly asked Gene Sperling. “Do you feel the pain?”
“You know, I feel the pain for so many families in our lives”, he responded.
Stelter interjected, wondering if gas prices directly effect Sperling’s pocket. Continued Below
“Look, you know, we see, you know, gallon gas — gallon of milk go up to $5. Everybody understands that is a hit,” he said.
“I’m not gonna try to say I, you know, feel that pain personally as much as so many families who make 50 or 60K,” Sperling admitted.
Meanwhile, the average national retail price for a gallon of regular gasoline is projected to surpass $6 by the of summer. According to JP Morgan, prices could surge another 37% by August, hitting a $6.20 per gallon national average, as previously reported by The Freedom Times. Video Below
