January 1, Gas Price Increase: Now averages $3.02 per gallon



How are you doing, Americans

The price of regular-grade gasoline has increased over the last couple of weeks, making it $3.02 per gallon on the average. That’s $1.05 higher than it was in 2020.

Workers will do meetings with hologram versions of their colleagues sitting next to them. And hopefully, no more pandemic.

Jimmy Kimmel has one word to describe Caitlyn Jenner for her views on California’s homeless population — “ignorant”. During Jenner’s interview with Sean Hannity, she condemned California’s homeless crisis because it’s the reason why her friends are leaving the state. She even shared a story about a one friend who was packing up his hangar because he “can’t walk down the streets and see the homeless.” She want to be California governor, guys.

Have a nice day,
