President Biden took to social media to tout a modest recent decrease in gas prices, drawing ire from critics who pointed out that prices are still up sharply since the president took office.
"Touting a small decrease in gas prices while the average American is still struggling is a slap in the face to these working class Americans," Alexis Martinez Johnson, an environmental engineer and Republican nominee for New Mexico's 3rd Congressional District, told Fox News Digital. "We have the capability to lower gas prices right here in New Mexico, but Joe Biden would rather fist bump Saudi dictators instead of bringing costs down in America."
Martinez Johnson's comment comes after Biden shared a graphic on Twitter Monday showing that drivers are saving $35 a month from when gas prices peaked, while a family with two cars is saving $70 per month.
"For American families looking for a little more breathing room, these savings matter," Biden said.
