    President Joe Biden faced backlash Thursday for false claims that he made about the price of gasoline when he took office.

    Speaking at Onondaga Community College in Syracuse, New York, about Micron's plan to invest in chips manufacturing, Biden falsely claimed that the price of gasoline was $5 per gallon when he took office.

    "And because of the actions we've taken, gas prices are declining," Biden claimed. "We're down $1.25 since the peak this summer, and they've been falling for the last three weeks at well - as well. That's adding up to real savings for families."

    "Today, the most common price of gas in America is $3.39 - down from over $5 when I took office," Biden said.

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) slammed Biden over the false claims.

    "This is a blatant lie," Cruz tweeted. "And - even in his diminished state - @JoeBiden knows it. Every single media 'fact checker' has a responsibility to unequivocally call out this, quite literal, gas lighting."

    "GasBuddy data shows that the most common prices when Biden took office were $2.29, $2.19, $2.39 and $2.09, the top 10% averaged $3.26/gal, while the bottom 10% averaged $2.00/gal," energy analyst Patrick De Haan tweeted. "The median price was $2.29/gal."

    Former Margaret Thatcher aide Nile Gardiner tweeted, "The outright lies from the Biden Presidency are a disgrace and are extremely condescending. Biden treats the American people with contempt."

    "Biden is an inveterate, remorseless liar," former White House official Stephen Miller tweeted.

    "It's not hyperbole to say Joe Biden is the biggest liar in presidential history," radio host Jesse Kelly tweeted. "And that's saying something because they all lie all the time. But he tell these bizarre black and white lies that any idiot can verify. It's honestly very strange."

    Fox News commentator Guy Benson wrote, "He keeps saying just totally false, easily falsifiable stuff about gas prices."

    "I look forward to the ACKSHUALLY Reuters or AP 'fact-check' on how when you consider the inversion principle of the fallopian tube, and congregate it with adverbs aplenty alongside ball bearings, this claim from Biden is 'mostly true,'" podcast host Steve Deace tweeted.

    Radio host Andrew Wilkow tweeted: "As soon as he cannot use the SPR that price is going right back up."

    "No matter how often you repeat a lie, it still doesn't change the fact that it's a lie," Jennifer Stefano tweeted.

Inarguably, the policies of the Democrats in congress and Joe Biden as the Executive is plunging the United States into a recession, if we are not already there; a recession that was completely avoidable. Will abrupt changes in policies occur in time?
  Yes, the Democrats have a bold plan, yet to be revealed, to save us.
  No, there will have to be a complete undoing of the damage done by these Democrats.
  I can't do simple math, so how am I to understand the concept of basic economics.
