As good a reason as any

High gasoline prices are in our future.  Nice that the Biden administration has such a convenient "crisis" to shift the blame.  From The Epoch Times:

Gas Prices Expected to Keep Rising in Wake of Colonial Pipeline Attack
Gas prices, already close to $3 a gallon after a cyberattack on Colonial Pipeline, are expected to keep rising through the week, especially in the eastern United States.

“We’re expecting to see price increases to continue through the week, and in particular in the southeast region and in the northeast, because we are seeing directly impacted areas along the terminals of the pipeline that remain out,” Devin Gladden with the American Automobile Association (AAA) told The Epoch Times.

“And so as we see imports, deliveries from trucks, fill that gap, that may mean that higher costs will be associated with those deliveries and that is certainly causing prices to increase at the pump for consumers,” he added.

I went to Gas Buddy to check prices but they were having some issues - I'll try again later today and see how things are in New York City, Los Angeles and Seattle.

Dropped my membership with AAA about five years ago.  My insurance company offers exactly what I want - basic roadside rescue and towing - for about 1/3rd the cost. AAA used to be focused on car+driver+travel and now, they are trying to diversify by marketing all sorts of other crap.  I get it, they are a business and their core function is to make money for their shareholders. Still - when you dilute the core competency, you dilute the whole business. Not good.
