(FreedomBeacon.com)- Twitter users reported a post from President Joe Biden as problematic after he boasted that the “most common gas price” in the nation is $3.19.
The more typical metric used is the “average” gas price. But, like most lefties, he switched it up to create the illusion that most fit their narrative.
Twitter users marked the post as needing context by writing, “Readers provided context that they believed people might want to know.”
Biden is referring to the “most common gas price,” as opposed to the average gas price of $3.800, according to the following context note (11/6/22).
The most typical gas price is the “mode” price. While both are correct, politicians frequently use the lowest number. They paint a rosy picture by removing high gas states from the equation.
The contextualization included links to the Wall Street Journal story and the American Automobile Association (AAA) gas price tracking website.
Even though the flagging did not amend Biden’s tweet, it was noted that context was missing because the post did not indicate the national average gas price, which is 60 cents more expensive than the average gas price.
The Journal claims that GasBuddy.com uses the most typical measurement, or the mode, while AAA uses the national average or the median.
After hitting a record high of $5.016 in June, the national average gas price was $3.804 on Monday. Since the beginning of the Biden administration, gas prices have grown by 18.8 percent.
This is the second occasion this past week that a Biden administration Twitter account has been modified by Twitter users with the new background feature.
Seniors will get the “largest boost in their Social Security checks in 10 years due to President Biden’s leadership,” the White House tweeted on Wednesday.
The White House withdrew the tweet after Twitter users clarified it by pointing out that social security checks are indexed to inflation rate.
Biden’s “benevolence” was triggered by law due to Biden’s incompetent economic policies.
