Gas prices are reducing the benefits Americans are getting from President Trump's tax cuts, reports USA today.

The big picture: "President Trump’s decision this week to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal and reinstate sanctions against that oil-rich country could constrain global supplies, further pushing up crude and gasoline prices," writes USA Today.

By the numbers:
  • The average price for regular unleaded gas has risen 50 cents per gallon in the last year, reaching $2.84 this week.
  • Americans spend on average $450 a year on gasoline.
  • Average middle-class Americans are expected to keep $930 from tax benefits in 2018.
