Unexpected gas prices are hurting families across the country, but drivers in California and New York are feeling an even bigger pinch at the pump. Gas prices are already skyrocketing due to inflation and supply chain issues that have been worse after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine two weeks ago. President Joe Biden had announced on Tuesday a ban on Russian oil, gas and energy imports to the U.S. in an effort to weaken Russian Vladimir Putin, but because of this move it is expected that gas prices will rise even more. Will people be able to afford gas anymore? What will happen to the economy? No one knows.
