A Pennsylvania man was tackled by police and arrested after placing stickers of President Biden declaring “I did that!” on gas pumps.
Thomas Richard Glazewski, 54, of Manor Township, allegedly placed the ‘I did that!‘ stickers as a means of protesting extraordinarily high gas prices.
The video showed the man screaming that he was responsible for the stickers being stuck to the pumps. He then became belligerent towards police officers.
“That was what I did. I did that. That’s what I did,” he can be heard yelling in a video captured of the incident late last month.
Glazewski was eventually subdued by officers, and continued fighting as officers placed him in a police car.

The incident led to Fox News personality Jesse Watters commenting on the man’s actions.
“We understand his frustration,” Watters said. “Gas prices are getting out of hand.”
He added, “But, if you’re going to put up the stickers, maybe keep it cool when the cops come.”

Biden’s Price Hike
There’s no doubt the stickers, while humorous, are creating headaches for gas station owners who have to peel them off every time they show up.
According to one cashier at a station in Minnesota, it’s “almost an everyday thing.”
Frustration amongst drivers isn’t likely to subside any time soon. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, inflation rose to 8.5% in March. This was due in part to higher gas prices.
The March gasoline price index increased 18.3%
The fastest increase in year-over year inflation rates since 1981 was 1.2% for consumer prices. They were 8.5% higher than a year ago.
Soaring gas prices were a big part of the story in March, but even excluding food & energy, prices were up 6.5% from a year earlier.https://t.co/SRLXnbj0i7

What Can You Do To Reduce Your Pain?
As a way to reduce pump pain, the President will likely announce that gasoline that contains a 15% blend of ethanol is going to be allowed to be sold in the summer.
On average, the blend is 10 cents cheaper than regular gasoline.
The national average for one gallon of gasoline went from $2.86 one year ago to $4.10 Tuesday, according to AAA.
Inflation is more than a story of gas prices…
Groceries +10% –> biggest spike since 1981
Meat/poultry/fish +13.8% ->biggest since 1979
New cars 12.6%->biggest ever
Electricity +11.1% -> biggest since ’06
Home furnishing 10.8% ->biggest ever
Rent 5.1% ->largest since 1991

According to an ABC News/Ipsos survey, half of Americans say they are facing financial difficulties due to skyrocketing gasoline prices. Of those, one in five say their financial hardship is “serious.”
Vladimir Putin, the oil companies and Democrat policies are four of the top reasons Americans feel responsible for high gas prices.
However, the gas prices were on the rise long before Putin invaded Ukraine. And the oil companies seem to have been in control during President Trump’s tenure.
