    As gas prices hit record highs, Northern California drivers are paying almost $10 per gallon. The national average for a gallon of gas rose three cents overnight to $4.85, marking AAA’s highest recorded average price. Yet drivers in Mendocino, California, have reported paying $9.63 per gallon for regular and as high as $9.94 for premium, according to Gas Buddy. Mendocino, California, is located around 150 miles north of San Francisco. DRIVERS IN THIS STATE GET SIX-MONTH GAS TAX HOLIDAY AS PRICES HIT RECORD HIGH California reached its highest average price for regular of $6.33 a gallon Sunday. Economic woes, including rising gas prices, have compounded as the coronavirus pandemic dovetails with other world events, such as the war in Ukraine and a supply chain crisis. CLICK HERE TO READ MORE FROM THE WASHINGTON EXAMINER Prices averaged $2.38 per gallon when President Joe Biden took office. The national gas price average is now roughly $4.848, according to AAA.

    President Joe Biden promised Monday to continue working to bring down the price of gasoline, less than three months after his historic release of oil from the strategic oil reserves. “I’m going to work like the devil to get gas prices down,” Biden told attendees at the National Association of Counties 2022 Legislative Conference in Washington, DC. The price of gasoline has spiked again after the president announced on November 23 he would release 50 million barrels of oil to help keep prices down, more than any release by an administration in modern history. The average price of gasoline was about $2.37 when Biden took office and jumped to as high as $3.41 in November 2021 before he released oil from the strategic oil reserves in time for the Thanksgiving holiday driving season. But average gas prices only fell to $3.27 a gallon before starting to tick up again. As of Monday, the average gas prices are up to $3.48 a gallon while in some places across the country drivers are paying up to five or six dollars a...
    Joe and Jill Biden have worn face masks to walk across the lawn at the White House, despite there being no mandate to do so and Omicron infection rates collapsing. The Bidens - who are booster vaccinated - covered their faces for no apparent reason as they crossed the White House grounds after disembarking Marine One. It is not clear who the President, 79, or the First Lady, 70, were protecting or who they felt they needed protection from as the only people walking across the grounds.  When the couple walked closer to the White House, members of the secret sevice and the press were seen nearer, within a couple of yards, however the risk of infection given they were outdoors was negligible. It comes just months after the Bidens were pictured wearing face masks on a deserted Rehoboth Beach in Delaware while walking their German Shepherd puppy, Commander. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in December updated its guidance to say that Americans who are fully vaccinated can safely go maskless indoors, or outdoors, with the exception...
    Wednesday at 2:58 pm, President Biden took to the podium in the East Room and began remarks on supply chain bottlenecks that are causing shortages of consumer goods and threatening to make Christmas gifts late. What Biden did not address is whatever bottleneck it was that caused him to be 38 minutes late for his 2:20 pm event. Nor did he apologize for keeping everyone waiting. Perhaps he felt there was no need, because this is to be expected. From June 1 through the end of last week, Biden was an average of 22.4 minutes late for his publicly scheduled events, according to a Fox News tally. He sometimes keeps his audiences waiting an hour or more. CHANTS OF 'F--- JOE BIDEN' RAIN DOWN FROM NASCAR STANDS DURING INTERVIEW WITH TALLADEGA WINNER In June, Biden inexplicably arrived over two hours late (two hours and 38 minutes, to be exact) for a June 14 press conference in Switzerland on the coronavirus pandemic and NATO relations. Curiously, he never provided a reason for the late arrival, though there was speculation it was...
    Senator Joe Manchin, a key moderate Democrat, said Wednesday he was open to passing a major reconciliation bill on infrastructure without Republican support, a process the White House is considering should negotiations with Republicans fall apart. Manchin is one of 21 senators working on an $1.2 trillion bipartisan plan to rebuild roads, bridges and other traditional infrastructure. However, he suggested he was open to passing a bigger package without Republican support, a pronouncement that came ahead of Wednesday's negotiations between White House staff and the lawmakers.  President Joe Biden would need Manchin's vote if he wanted to pass his infrastructure proposals through a process known as reconciliation, which allows the Senate to bypass its usual 60-vote threshold to advance legislation. In the 50-50 Senate, Biden can't lose a single member of his party. Manchin offered words of hope to the White House when he said he was open to passing Biden's 'human' infrastructure plan without Republican support. And he suggested he supported reversing some of the tax cuts made under Donald Trump, an option Biden wants to use to pay...
    MILTON (CBS) — Not Your Average Joe’s, a chain restaurant based in Milton, has closed four Massachusetts restaurants for the winter, a company executive tells WBZ-TV. Locations in Arlington, Burlington, Methuen and Randolph were in the process of shutting down on Monday. A total of 96 employees in Massachusetts are being furloughed. Not Your Average Joe’s Chief Financial Officer Joe McGuire said the shuttered restaurants will hopefully reopen, depending on customer behavior and the performance of their other restaurants. Not Your Average Joe’s has locations in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Maryland. A restaurant in Bethesda, Maryland is also closing for the season. The Patriot Ledger reports that the company received $5.9 million from the Paycheck Protection Program to use on payroll. McGuire said that and patio dining helped, but staying open during the winter is more challenging, and the company decided to temporarily close locations with the lowest sales. The pandemic has taken a devastating toll on the restaurant industry. Massachusetts is allowing restaurants to offer indoor dining at just 25% capacity as coronavirus cases surge...
    Joe Judge and the New York Giants are leading the NFC East. It’s time to consider him a member of the Coach of the Year conversation.  How does one define the Coach of the Year? How does a team that’s built to win and should be successful always takes home the hardware? Sometimes, the names that no one remembers find more success than those established. That’s because of Judge and nothing else. One look at the Giants’ misfit roster and one would wonder how anyone could win behind the offensive line and with an average secondary? That comes down to coaching, something the Giants have hit out of the Meadowlands and into Yankees Stadium. Kevin Stefanski has the Browns sitting with their first winning record in over a decade. Brian Flores has turned Miami’s defense into one of the league’s best and is winning with a rookie quarterback. Mike Tomlin took the Steelers to an 11-0 start despite average offensive play.All are deserving of consideration. So is Judge at this point. If the Giants keep winning, they’ll make it to the postseason...
    White House Communications Director Alyssa Farah claimed President Donald Trump has “done more while sick with the coronavirus” than 2020 Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden does “on an average day.” On Fox News, Tuesday, Farah defended Trump’s controversial Monday White House balcony appearance after he returned from Walter Reed Medical Center. “In times like this, in these moments in our country, it’s highly important that the commander-in-chief express confidence to our domestic population,” she said. “But it’s also very important to our allies and adversaries who are watching closely to see is he projecting an image of strength, and that is exactly what he did last night.” “The world and American people needed to see their president strong and leading,” Farah declared. After Fox News anchor Sandra Smith claimed Biden “has all but said it’s the president’s own fault he’s sick” with Covid-19, Farah responded, “I think it’s ridiculous. This president’s actually been leading.” “Joe Biden talks a lot about what he would do, and everything he mentions this president’s already done. Surging PPE, surging therapeutics, racing to get...

    Joe Biden claimed he could potentially shut the United States down again to fight the coronavirus pandemic if elected President.  The newly confirmed Democratic Presidential nominee said he would take the advice of scientists to 'save lives' as he slammed President Trump for concentrating on the economy instead of working 'to fix the virus'.  He blasted it as the 'fundamental flaw' of the current administration in not believing the coronavirus outbreak had to be pushed back before the country can start running again.  Biden made the comments in an exclusive interview with ABC News anchor David Muir that will air in full on Sunday.   Scroll down for video In an interview with ABC News, Joe Biden said he would shut down the country again if scientists advised it was needed to fight coronavirus if he is elected president The Walt Disney Company Privacy Policy 'I will be prepared to do whatever it takes to save lives because we cannot get the country moving, until we control the virus,' Biden said during his first joint interview alongside running mate,...
    A’s outfielder Ramon Laureano did everything MLB feared during its attempt to play through a pandemic: Charge an opposing dugout and start a mini-brawl. The league has tried to shut down handshakes and spitting in order to curb the spread of COVID-19. Wrestling, then, is a big no-no. So, it was obvious Laureano would get a substantial suspension for rushing the Astros on Sunday after being hit by a pitch and taunted by Houston hitting coach Alex Cintron (who got a 20-game punishment for his role). What surprised many fans is that Laureano’s ban was six games — shorter than that of Dodgers pitcher Joe Kelly, who threw behind and over the head of Astros hitters earlier this year but did not get physical with them. Kelly was suspended eight games for his actions. Alex Cintrón’s suspension is effective immediately. He was also fined an undisclosed amount. Here’s MLB’s announcement re: Cintrón and Laureano pic.twitter.com/dYsIRC7MIq — Jake Kaplan (@jakemkaplan) August 11, 2020 The league’s reasoning is likely twofold. Laureano is a hitter and Kelly is a pitcher, differentiating...

    Joe Biden (D) holds a 14-point lead nationally over President Trump, according to a New York Times/Siena College poll released on Wednesday. The survey, taken June 17-22 among 1,337 registered voters, showed the Democrat Party’s presumptive nominee leading the president 50 percent to 36 percent. According to the Times, the results serve as a sign that Trump is “the clear underdog right now in his fight for a second term”: But among a striking cross-section of voters, the distaste for Mr. Trump has deepened as his administration failed to stop a deadly disease that crippled the economy and then as he responded to a wave of racial-justice protests with angry bluster and militaristic threats. The dominant picture that emerges from the poll is of a country ready to reject a president whom a strong majority of voters regard as failing the greatest tests confronting his administration. The Times’ survey shows the former vice president leading with not just black, Hispanic, and female voters, but “groups that have typically been the backbones of Republican electoral success,” the paper noted. “About two-fifths...
