Biden’s gas price hike is putting a pinch in Americans’ pocketbooks and not just at the pump

Inflation is at a 40-year high under President Joe Biden.

Wages aren’t keeping up with rising prices.

And record high gas prices are about to put yet another pinch in Americans’ pocketbooks.

Uber, Lyft and taxi services are adding fuel fees to offset the soaring gas prices under President Joe Biden.

Uber riders may have recently noticed an added 55-cent maximum fuel charge on the receipt from their latest ride.

Meanwhile, Uber Eats is adding a surcharge of $0.35 to $0.45, depending on location.

Chief Uber competitor, Lyft, has followed suit and has also just implemented a 55-cent fee for fuel.

For both Uber and Lyft, the amount of the fuel charge is dependent on how long the trip is and gas prices in your area.

And for each of these rideshare mega companies, the new fuel fees will be in place for 60 days, at which point the companies will reexamine where the Joe Biden Gas Hike stands.

The companies say the added fees are going directly to the drivers to offset the record high gas prices under President Biden.

If you need a ride, but are more old school, you’re going to get hit twice as hard.

Taxi companies in several large metropolitan areas are adding an additional $1 fuel charge to their meters.

One agency in Washington D.C. says the extra fee will be in place for at least 120 days.

The general manager of D.C. Yellow Cab, Roy Spooner, says rising gas prices during the Biden Administration, combined by Biden and Dr. Fauci’s COVID regulations have really hurt the bottom line for the taxi business.

“When you think about how regular gas has pretty much doubled, every little bit helps,” Spooner said. “That extra dollar of gas will probably get you three or four miles and the average trip in the city is five miles, so you got some help with it.”

Aside from Uber Eats, many other food delivery services — who were some of the biggest corporate benefactors of the perpetual pandemic — are trying to ease the Biden burden on their drivers as well, but so far, without passing the buck on to consumers.

DoorDash, for example, is giving drivers ten dollars cash back when they use the DasherDirect debit card to buy gas.

They’re also rewarding drivers with the most miles each week with pay bonuses.
