Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Theblaze.com: “DCCC gets hammered on Twitter for trying and failing to save Biden on gas prices”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

The social media team for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee was lambasted on Twitter for a tone-deaf attempt to come to the aid of President Joe Biden on the subject of high gas prices.

The DCCC tried to credit Biden for a slight decrease in the price of gas that was documented in the last week by economic data from the Federal Reserve.

That decrease was two cents, while the price of gas has risen about $1.14 from its price of $2.13 per gallon in Dec. 2020, to its price of $3.27 per gallon currently.

Critics pounced on the absurdity of praising Biden for a two cent drop in gas prices when they have skyrocketed over the past few months.

"Gas prices going down 2¢ per gallon in a month is not the tweet-worthy win the @DCCC thinks it is. (That would be about 22¢ in savings to fill up an 11-gallon Corolla.) Not tweeting was also an option," said pollster Frank Luntz.
