President Biden Blames Russia For Skyrocketing Gas Prices, Says He ‘Can’t Do Much’

With gas prices soaring to record highs across the U.S. this week, President Joe Biden said Tuesday that they will continue going up.

When questioned by reporters in Texas of what he’s planning to do, Biden cast blame on Russian President Vladimir Putin, amid the country’s ongoing invasion of Ukraine.

“I can’t do much right now. Russia’s responsible,” Biden said.

As OutKick’s Joe Kinsey relayed Tuesday, the Biden administration announced a ban on the import of Russian oil along with liquefied national gas and coal. Gas prices have risen to an all-time high of $4.17 per gallon in the U.S., over $6 for premium in states such as California.

“This is a step that we’re taking to inflict further pain on Putin,” Biden said, via the New York Post. “But there will be costs as well here in the United States,” Biden said.

  1. But it’s just a coincidence that his crackhead son is on the board of a Ukranian gas/oil company, right? I wonder where the surrounding countries are going to get oil/gas now that Russian exports are being banned….

  2. Somebody tell this fucking dope that has prices we’re going up before Russia invaded Ukraine. These people just flat out lie about everything thinking Americans are that dumb. More likely, however, is they don’t care what Americans think or feel. To shut down our energy independence so now we’re begging dictatorial countries to sell us oil makes my head hurt.
