Are you fed up with high gas prices? You’ll just have to keep going because it is right to pay more for gas. Despite the fact that we are not at war with him, we have an overseas dictator to defeat.
According to President Joe Biden, the high gas prices that you are currently paying are necessary to defeat Russian President Vladimir Putin and his war against Ukraine.
After a reporter asked him how long American motorists would endure high gas prices as a “Premium for War”.
“As long as it takes,” Biden said, “so Russia cannot in fact defeat Ukraine and move beyond Ukraine. This is a critical, critical position for the world. Here we are. Why do we have NATO? I told Putin that in fact, if he were to move, we would move to strengthen NATO. We would move to strengthen NATO across the board.”

This reasoning may work for leftists who love to post the Ukraine flag on their Twitter accounts, but it’s not for everyone. It is unclear how long this war will continue, and the phrase “it’ll happen until it doesn’t”, is not going to make voters feel at ease. People will only be angrier if they try to appeal to their higher angels by telling lies every time they go to the pump.
For many Americans, however, this is only a thin covering for the fact the Biden administration created the gas crisis by refusing the lifting of regulations on oil companies. This allowed them to drill and refine here in the USA.
Biden is aware that America is in a mess because the Democrats’ agenda and narrative won’t allow them to cooperate with oil companies. Biden’s radical base would be upset by any move to open up oil companies for more business.
Putin is not the problem in the gas crisis. It’s Biden. He’s trying to put pressure on Putin once more, which only makes Americans angrier.
