Morning everyone! Welcome to the Gas Price Watch today: our daily post in your newspaper misery at the pump.

I have some good news! The average price of a gallon of regular gas has dropped below $ 4.30. Now it is a stunning $ 4.29. While it’s not the drastic drop you and I were hoping for, it’s a move in the right direction.

There is not much news in the world of gasoline today. That said, the price of oil continues to fall. Yesterday President Biden addressed the issue on social media. You can read more about it here.

However, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer says Democrats will soon invite leaders of big oil companies to testify about the high prices, according to Politic.

What Happened: Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said Wednesday his chamber would call top oil and gas executives to testify. He wants to know why companies are allowing more company stock buybacks rather than taking steps to reduce the price of gas at the pump.

“In the coming weeks, I predict that Congress will invite CEOs of oil and gas companies to testify about the alarming rise in energy prices … In recent days, oil prices have actually fallen, but the price of gas at the pump he didn’t, “Schumer said.

He continued: “As Americans pay more at the pump, the biggest oil companies in America are wreaking havoc.”
