Gas prices in the United States hit a new high on Tuesday, as President Joe Biden declared that combating inflation is his top domestic priority.

According to the American Automobile Association (AAA), the average gas price reached $4.37 per gallon, breaking the previous high of $4.33 recorded on March 11.

A year ago, the average price per gallon was $2.97.

According to Andy Lipow, an analyst at Lipow Oil Associates, “gasoline and diesel (reached) a record high today” in data that hasn’t been adjusted for inflation effects.

Gas prices have risen in tandem with global crude oil prices as “the globe seeks alternate supply to Russian oil,” he said.
