I hate being lied to. Now that we’re at a new 40 years high for inflation, the lies just keep growing.
- White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Wednesday that the White House was expecting a high inflation report, and she blamed the rise in gas prices on Russia’s military buildup and subsequent invasion of Ukraine.
- During a gaggle with reporters in Fort Worth, Texas, on Tuesday, President Biden was asked what he was going to do about rising gas prices.
- “I’m going to do everything I can to minimize Putin’s price hike here at home,” the president said Wednesday.
- And then hours later, as he was getting off Air Force One, he said, I “can’t do much about that right now.” “Can’t do much right now. Russia is responsible.”
The February data does not include Russia’s war on UKRAINE, which has accelerated the rise in gas prices. As of Thursday, the U.S. national average hit a record high of $4.35 per gallon.
Geltrude & Company founder Dan Geltrude told FOX Business he thinks gas prices will hit $5 this month and that it could even go as high as $10 unless the Biden administration expands domestic oil production.
“It would not surprise me,” he said. “So until the United States decides, or this administration decides that we are going to pump more oil, it is not going to change. It’s not. Fuel costs are just going to continue to rise.”
Geltrude said the U.S. is on track to enter a full-blown recession within the year.
You got us into this mess, Joe. Not Russia, not Trump. You. That’s why 60% of Americans say they will not vote for you in 2024. Somebody, please, start telling the truth.
