You have to give credit to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC). They stuck to their guns and kept up a Tweet (so far) thanking Joe Biden for lowering gas prices. The problem is the graphic they shared is so manipulated and the price change is so pitiful, even leftwing propaganda outlet Business Insider noticed their shenanigans:
In an attempt to tout President Joe Biden’s efforts at lowering gas prices, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee tweeted out a misleading chart on Thursday.

As inflation and increased trust in the GOP to handle the economy have become major problems for Democrats, the Biden administration has responded by releasing 50 million barrels of oil from the US strategic reserves in November.
The Biden administration has also targeted “the cartel of shipping companies” that control the bulk of global trade in an effort to loosen the bottlenecks seen at major US ports.
In the DCCC chart, a 2 cent per gallon decrease is made to look more dramatic by stretching the X-axis of the graph out of scale.
Ouch. But no matter how bad the Business Insider report painted the move, Twitter users were much more brutal.
LMAOOOOO when you see the chart axis https://t.co/B1tPDRAWv3

Can I get the play-by-play on who on your staff thought this was a good idea? The graphics guy who made it? The comms guy who thinks two cents is something to high-five over? Whoever approved and then tweeted it? Truly amazing stuff.

I absolutely cannot get over the @dccc thinking it was a good idea to tweet that gas prices have dropped TWO CENTS and thanking Joe Biden for it.
Because families experience inflation are going to be grateful that gas prices have dropped two cents after rising $1 this year. https://t.co/bvTHbLXJTc

First we saved 16 cents on our Fourth of July cookouts and now 2 cents on gas!

OK, so now he’s only responsible for increasing the price $1.43/gallon over the last year, morons. https://t.co/of1BzSGPzt

About two years ago I reached out to the DCCC, offering to help improve their social media strategy. I was brushed off, told explicitly that "our people know what they're doing." https://t.co/PaATi6MPMj

Two cents? Two? Cents?
Well; we can tell why democrats raise our costs by $1000 and then celebrate getting us a $2 discount.
Progressives continue to cause poverty.

This is clear proof the DCCC is either trying to derail the Biden-Harris regime from the inside or they think the American people are illiterate and unable to do basic math. Surely nobody thought this was actually a good idea that helps the sinking regime, right?
