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.
A video surfaced of the man shouting an admission that he had been responsible for placing the stickers on the pumps, then becoming belligerent with police officers.
“I did that. I did that. That’s what I did,” he can be heard yelling in a video captured of the incident late last month.
Officers eventually tackled Glazewski and he continued to fight as they placed him in the police vehicle.

The ‘I did that!’ stickers have been cropping up on gas pumps across the nation, as consumers become consistently dismayed with President Biden’s handling of inflation and gas prices.
The Pennsylvania man, however, upped the ante by reportedly spraying the stickers with some sort of substance to make it more difficult for them to be removed.

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. The Bureau of Labor Statistics released numbers this morning indicating inflation rose to a new four-decade high of 8.5% in March thanks in large part to gas prices.
The gasoline price index rose 18.3% in March.
Consumer prices rose 1.2% in March, and were up 8.5% from a year earlier, the fastest year-over-year inflation since 1981.
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

Easing Pain At The Pump?
The President is expected to announce his administration plans on allowing gasoline that uses a 15% ethanol blend to be sold during the summer as a means to ease the pain at the pump.
The blend costs on average 10 cents less 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

A recent ABC News/Ipsos poll indicates that 50% of Americans report facing financial hardship due to the skyrocketing gas prices. Of those, one in five say their financial hardship is “serious.”
The top four things Americans blame for gas prices are Vladimir Putin, oil companies, Democrat policies, and Joe Biden.
Gas prices though had been on the rise well before Putin and Russia invaded Ukraine and the oil companies seemed to be in check when President Trump was in office.
