The U.S. Oil & Gas Association took successful at President Biden after he tweeted on Saturday that “companies running gas stations” ought to merely “bring down the price you are charging at the pump,” telling him that he ought to “please make sure the WH intern who posted this tweet registers for Econ 101 for the fall semester.”

“Working on it Mr. President. In the meantime – have a Happy 4th and please make sure the WH intern who posted this tweet registers for Econ 101 for the fall semester…,” the tweeted. 

On Sunday, Biden tweeted that “companies running gas stations” ought to take observe that “this is a time of war and global peril.”

“My message to the companies running gas stations and setting prices at the pump is simple: this is a time of war and global peril,” Biden tweeted on Saturday. “Bring down the price you are charging at the pump to reflect the cost you’re paying for the product. And do it now.”

Biden’s tweet comes as fuel costs are averaging at $4.812 nationwide, which is up 5 cents from one month in the past. In some states, nevertheless, costs are a lot greater.

In California, the common worth per gallon of fuel is $6.244 and in Illinois, it’s $5.325.

Biden has tried to deflect blame for the rise in fuel costs to Russian President Vladimir Putin, dubbing it the “Putin’s Price Hike,” a time period used repeatedly by the White House, regardless of his campaign promise to at all times take accountability and never blame others.

The name for motion from Biden follows a failed proposal from the Oval Office to implement a 90-day fuel tax vacation, which was dismissed by even Democratic lawmakers as outlandish.

During the presidential marketing campaign, Biden vowed to sacrifice the power increase, low costs, and even jobs for the sake of his inexperienced agenda. 

In the December 2019 Democratic debate, moderator Tim Alberta requested: “Three consecutive American presidents have enjoyed stints of explosive economic growth due to a boom in oil and natural gas production. As president, would you be willing to sacrifice some of that growth, even knowing potentially that it could displace thousands, maybe hundreds of thousands of blue-collar workers in the interest of transitioning to that greener economy?”

“The answer is yes,” the previous vice chairman mentioned.

Biden canceled the Keystone XL pipeline, which might have delivered about 870,000 barrels of oil per day from Canada to Texas refineries, and “paused” oil and fuel leases on federal lands throughout his first hours in workplace. Texas Gov. Greg Abbott just lately warned of a discretionary Environmental Protection Agency rule that, if imposed, would increase fuel costs even additional.

Biden has veered between embracing high gas prices as the worth of an “incredible transition” to a “green” economic system, to blaming Vladimir Putin, to blaming power producers, and now blaming fuel station homeowners, who solely make a number of cents per gallon of fuel they promote.
