Gas Prices Expected to Soar Even Higher this Summer — ‘Experts’ Blame Putin

The pain at the pump is about to get even more painful, and some people still want to blame Putin for it.

According to Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis at GasBuddy, gas prices are expected to hit new records as spring becomes summer and people take to the open road for some much-needed family vacations.

“We’re not in a record-setting summer when it comes to consumption, but we are at a record-setting summer for prices,” De Haan says.

And De Haan is pointing the finger at Russian president Vladimir Putin:

“I think the best outcome that would bring most meaningful relief is out of [our] control. It may be in the Russian hands, and that’s regime change,” he says.

Should that happen, “Western companies and countries” may have the confidence to “start doing business and buying that Russian oil again,” he insists.

In other words, it’s all Putin’s fault. Sure, Jan

De Haan admits that limitations in domestic production may have contributed to the problem as well, though even that idea is positioned as a fault in suppliers, not in US government policy, and is framed as byproduct of the Russia/Ukraine war:

“De Haan also partly attributes rising fuel prices to reduced refining capability in the U.S. West Texas Intermediate crude futures shot up from about $91 to $123 since Russia’s invasion,” Yahoo!’s copy reads.


Joe Biden and other Democrats and their media lackeys have tried to pin the price of gas and other essentials on Putin as well, dubbing the clever phrase “the Putin price hike” (if Biden could only get the words out.)

As Jan Brady herself might say, “Russia! Russia! Russia!”

  1. A gas and oil expert? He’s a tech guy that built an app. Nice try. He’s either a leftist dweeb or the stupidest person on the planet (I know, it’s the same thing). I guess he doesn’t understand supply and demand. Oil refinery capacity diminished due to lack of demand during the Fauci lockdowns, then it was decided to not reopen production due to lack of supply. And who imposed regulations and stopped leases for new drilling on day one of his administration? Biden. And who continues to cancel leases? Biden. And who said during the DNC primaries that he would put oil businesses out of business? Biden. This isn’t Putin’s fault, but he does love it when oil prices are high. I guess the Biden administration to figure that out.

    And he wants regime change? I agree with him on that, but I disagree on the country that needs it. #FJB.

  2. Sorry, but last week Biden took credit for the high gas prices, saying its a price we have to pay for his “great transformation,” and that we would look back and be happy about it. Can’t go back to blaming Putin now.
