Last week, Democrats and the Biden White House were trying to blame Putin’s invasion of Ukraine for high gas prices.
Apparently, no one was buying that ridiculous argument, so now the’re back to blaming big oil companies.
Who do you think they’ll blame next week?
The Daily Mail reports:
Biden and Democrats turn to targeting energy companies for ‘price gouging’ and increasing pain at the pumps with oil dropping in price but gas still $4.31 a gallon
Prices at the pump are trickling down slowly even as prices for a barrel of crude oil have dipped far faster, and Democrats are laying blame on fuel companies.
White House press secretary Jen Psaki noted at the top of her daily briefing that crude oil prices have sank to $94 per barrel – down from a peak of over $130 last week.
‘When oil prices were at this level one month ago, the average cost of a gallon of gasoline was $3.49, yet now the average cost of a gallon of gasoline is $4.32,’ she said. ‘When it comes to oil and gas prices, many accept that gas prices rise quickly and fall slowly, the so-called rocket and feathers phenomenon.’
‘If gas retailers’ costs are going down, they need to immediately pass those savings on to consumers,’ she said.
Biden used his bully pulpit to express a similar sentiment this morning: ‘Oil prices are decreasing, gas prices should too,’ he wrote on Twitter. ‘Oil and gas companies shouldn’t pad their profits at the expense of hardworking Americans.’

They’re not fooling anyone.
People understand that gas prices have been driven up by Biden’s policies.
Democrats could fix the problem tomorrow, they just don’t want to.
