CNN host Don Lemon has been ridiculed for praising Joe Biden for lower gas prices. Analysts pointed out that the host was serenading the President over a five-cent drop in the price per gallon. "Big economic relief for millions of Americans who have been dealing with soaring energy prices," announced Lemon on Tuesday night. "The price at the pump is finally easing up." [tweet_embed] December 10, 2021[/tweet_embed] He pointed to AAA figures revealing the price per gallon of $3.35, down from $3.39 last week and $3.42 last month. Lemon said the price was the lowest since October, and then broke into song, trilling: "Laaaaa!" He stated that the government was forecasting the price would fall to $3.01 by January, but that is still far higher than the $2.15 price of a gallon recorded in December 2020, when Donald Trump was President. "Can we just celebrate the good news for a minute? I'll take it where I can get it," he stated, clapping as he brought on guest Austan Goolsbee to discuss the numbers. [tweet_embed] December 10, 2021[/tweet_embed] Lemon tweeted before his show: "What do dropping gas prices & skyrocketing stocks mean for you?" The positive assessment had been offered throughout the day on CNN, with the network insisting the price drop was the greatest in seven weeks. They did not provide any accurate figures to explain this declaration. Several times on Tuesday, anchors, and commentators praised the small price drop as "critical relief for household budgets," "a big economic relief for millions," and "offering glimmers of hope for inflation-weary Americans," according to a Fox News analysis. On Tuesday afternoon, reporter Matt Egan published an article on CNN's website entitled: ‘Finally some relief: Gasoline and natural gas prices are falling.’ "Americans grappling with historic levels of inflation are finally getting some relief where they need it most: Previously-booming energy prices," Egan wrote. "After a relentless rise, prices at the pump are heading south. The national average price for a gallon of regular gas fell to a seven-week low of $3.35 a gallon on Tuesday, according to AAA."

Christine Romans, CNN's Chief Business Correspondent, appeared on the show and announced, "cooling energy costs … offer critical relief for household budgets." Media Research Center, a Conservative watchdog with Deputy Managing Editor Nicholas Fondacaro tweeting: "State-run media: CNN's Don Lemon does the White House's bidding by praising the price of gas falling just 5 cents." "This is what the Biden Administration wanted when they brought in media outlets to tell them how to spin the numbers."
