Objectivity 4.5 | Credibility 4.7 | Relevance 4.6

Gas prices in the U.S. continued their historic climb this weekend, hitting a record high of $4.43 per gallon on average, breaking the previous record of $4.11 per gallon in 2008. The cost per gallon of regular-grade gasoline has climbed 79 cents in the past two weeks and in some parts of the country, gas has reached into the high $6 range. The hike in gas prices come after Biden banned Russian oil from U.S. ports.
