Gas prices in Virginia have skyrocketed over the past few weeks, also steadily rising throughout the entirety of the Biden administration’s time in Washington.
Energy-dependent policies hinging on imports from Russia and other foreign entities, while we have plenty of oil here at home, have left the poor especially hard-hit by rising prices. However, all Americans – and Virginians – are struggling with these hikes.
Here are some graphics showing the current price for your trips to the pump. This first table from AAA shows just how drastically the price of gas has risen under the current administration:
Here is a graphic with a key showing where prices are worst in the state:
Current price of regular gas per gallon in Nothern Virginia:
- Alexandria: $4.30
- Arlington: $4.29
- Fairfax: $4.29
- Loudoun County: $4.25
- Manassas City: $4.19
- Prince William County: $4.29
- Stafford County: $4.22
- Fauquier County: $4.23
All Americans should expect gas to continue rising even higher as the conflict in Ukraine drags on. Things will only get worse at the pump unless the Biden administration opens up American pipelines like the Keystone XL. But don’t hold your breath.
