The St. Louis Post-Dispatch has heard the talking points from the Biden administration and wants to make sure their readers hear them too.
A recent editorial in the paper insisted that Russia is to blame for America’s high gas prices, not Joe Biden.
No one with a brain believes this. Gas prices have been rising for months. Biden talked about putting the oil industry out of business when he was running for president. He shut down the Keystone XL pipeline on day one.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch is crazy to think anyone is buying this.

High gas prices caused by Russia, pandemic, says St. Louis Post-Dispatch: ‘Not Biden’
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch is making clear who it thinks is responsible for the record-high gas prices plaguing Americans, and it isn’t President Biden.
In an editorial on Monday, the paper placed blame squarely on Russia, citing its ongoing invasion of Ukraine, and the effects of the coronavirus pandemic on the fluctuating demand for oil as the reasons for gas prices reaching a record average of $4.33 last week.
The editorial board also accused Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., as well as other Republicans, of lying about the root causes of more expensive gas, and claimed they were placing their own self-interest “above America’s interest in defending democracy in Ukraine.”
“After publicly pressuring President Joe Biden to halt Russian oil imports over its invasion of Ukraine, it took Sen. Josh Hawley literally just hours to lambast the president for doing exactly that last week and for being honest with the American people about the effect it would have on gas prices,” the board wrote.
Pretty much all of the Twitter comments look like this one:
No, it's Bidens fault and we all know it. Fake news hags👇 https://t.co/crbxJuAXpg
