Gas prices surge overnight to new highs; AFBF calls on Biden to act
Gas prices surged to new record highs overnight, jumping another 8 cents. The National average is now $4.25 a gallon. Diesel is $4.88.
Farm Bureau President Zippy Duvall is calling on the Biden administration to increase domestic energy production. In a letter to the President, he said that oil prices have increased 130 percent over the last year and a half, and it is likely to go up, as more sanctions are placed on Russia.
In his letter, he says, “By displacing imported petroleum, increased biofuels use and domestic energy production will enhance U.S. security and independence while supporting America’s farmers and rural communities.”
