It’s been easy to overlook gas prices over the past two years since everyone has been driving a little less, but with the return to offices happening for many workers, you may have noticed a slight increase in your pump total.
And by slight, I mean, HUGE.
As I’m writing this post, the nationwide average price of $4.32 per gallon of gas.
You may remember the last time gas hit $4, during the global recession in 2008. With pandemic woes, the war in Russia, and general wage inequality issues plaguing the world, much like 2008, this couldn’t come at a worse time.
But here’s the good news, as troubling and disruptive as this pain at the pump can be for many: we’re all in this together, which in turn means that people on Twitter and Instagram are sharing funny memes about the rising gas costs that are 100% free!
