In the meantime after all this successful Trump derangement diversion by the media, the deficit continues, the partisan IRS has been unleashed upon middle class America, the stock market is tanking, Russia is destroying Ukraine and costing the taxpayer trillions, the dollar is taking a beating due to student loan vote buying and other reverse Robinhood liberal policies, and ordinary Americans can't afford gasoline, air conditioning, or to even water their lawn. I'd be happy to see someone other than Trump in office if it would make independents rational again. Perhaps we still have a chance at turning this crazy hard left democratic socialist economy around. But I doubt independents would listen to De Santis either. At least he could save his own state from the scamdemic.
The best part about this is waiting four years to see how all the crazy apocalyptic predictions made by the fear mongering idiots in Right Wing media turned out to be painfully wrong...Gasoline would hit $10/gallon. Hyperinflation would ensue.

Actually, it’s down a third since this time last year.
the partisan IRS has been unleashed upon middle class America,
That hasn’t happened. The proposed increase in staff is years away.
the stock market is tanking,
The markets are still up from where they were at when we had the last election.
Russia is destroying Ukraine and costing the taxpayer trillions,
Maybe Russia shouldn’t have invaded Ukraine. Who does that sort of thing?
the dollar is taking a beating due to student loan vote buying
The dollar is actually the strongest that it has been against the Euro and Canadian dollar in over 15 years.
and ordinary Americans can't afford gasoline,
Gas prices are on their way down.
air conditioning,
You’re still running yours, right?
or to even water their lawn.
Because of increased drought? Were those climate change nuts right, after all?
I'd be happy to see someone other than Trump in office
No worries. Trump was booted in 2020.
if it would make independents rational again.
Considering what you’ve just posted here, I don’t think that it’s the rationality of the independents that we have to worry about.

Rhetoric devised by unpatriotic citizens who prefer to make excuses for their willful destruction of American democracy.

the defict has been cut at a record rate whereas the debt continues, but not nearly as much as it did under Bush, Trump, Reagan, etc. You don't really care about deficits.
the partisan IRS has been unleashed upon middle class America
Another lie that was debunked. The IRS isn't partisan just because you want it to be.
the stock market is tanking
It's higher than it was under Trump and the "tanking of 3% is half of that 6% dive it took under Trump. Again, you don't really care about the stock market.
Russia is destroying Ukraine and costing the taxpayer trillions
You're rooting for Russia I get that, but Russia is getting its ass kicked and its driving you crazy. Trillions? LOL
the dollar is taking a beating due to student loan vote buying
Actually, the dollar has reached a 21 year high. You're just making stuff up.
and ordinary Americans can't afford gasoline
They why do they? Again, more idiotic lies. You're still upset that the negative GDP that supposed "proved" a recession was revised upwards, and the economy isn't nearly as bad as you want it to be. You know, like it was during Trump's last two years.
even water their lawn
You mean Democrats control the rains now?
Perhaps we still have a chance at turning this crazy hard left democratic socialist economy around.
Yes, I'm sure you and yours are suffering so much right now. You're suffering because of all the political wins that are being racked up by your enemies, but stop pretending you're taking some kind of financial beating because of Biden.

With today's 2.4% drop, when adjusted for inflation, gas is currently trading at the 2018 high (5/18/18). Hopefully that is going to trickle down to the pumps sooner rather than later and give everyone a bit of relief.

This kind of factual information doesn't compute with Trumpers because they don't believe the domestic price of gas tracks at all with the global price of crude. In their minds, it is the mere fact that we elected a guy with a (D) after his name. That somehow forces pump stations all around the country to jack up prices.

With the additional drop today, gas is now trading about $0.30 below what it was on the 5/18/2018 high, adjusted to inflation.

(In 2018 moolah, gas is currently trading at ~$2.03)

October contracts for WTI and Brent Crude are down about 3.5% today, and Opec basket dropped 5%, and the Saudi's contracts are selling at a drop of almost 7%.

Not exactly a crazy drop, but at the same time, I'm skimming the news and not seeing anything significant to explain (maybe someone with more financial/world knowledge than me can spot something... and by "someone," I obviously mean everyone).

There is some good news, Ajax, you can vote for Beto and fix a few things at the local level down there in Texas.

Take Mississippi as a warning. I mean, seriously think about it Ajax, how do you think De Santis is going to send the stock market soaring, lower energy costs, raise the value of the dollar, and lower taxes for the average American?

What's his plan for all of that, Ajax? So far, like the governor of Mississippi, has De Santis done anything other than pull publicity stunts to fire up his base? Please show me the De Sasntis plan for lowering air conditioning costs. Or how about water? What's his take on the drought? All the DeSantis donation pleas I've read just talk about the woke mob.

Let's here what you've got from DeSantis, the economist.

Woohoo, gas is only $3.50/gallon instead of $5/gallon. Hail Joe Biden and the Democrats. Let's vote for them says the inner city uber drivers.

What do you think gas prices will be come November 2022, especially if Democrats retain control of the senate and continue to "transition" away from fossil fuels?

That's about what it was before panic-induced price gouging.
