President Biden Thinks Surging Gas Prices Will Make Us ‘Stronger’

Maybe President Joe Biden was listening to Kanye West while devouring (spilling?) his most recent ice cream cone.

There’s likely no other reason why Biden would borrow a phrase from the hip-hop mogul when discussing surging gas prices and insinuating that what doesn’t kill us, will only make us stronger.

We’d love to ask him, but he probably wouldn’t remember.

“[When] it comes to the gas prices, we’re going through an incredible transition that is taking place that, God willing, when it’s over, we’ll be stronger and the world will be stronger and less reliant on fossil fuels when this is over,” Biden said during a Monday press conference in Japan.

Biden’s head-scratching comments came less than a week after his presidency oversaw a historic rise in gas prices across the United States. Last Tuesday, all 50 states saw the average price of a gallon of gas top $4 for the first time ever.

Who said President Biden never accomplished anything?

 

As of Tuesday morning, the average price for a gallon of gas (per AAA) in the United States is $4.59. That’s an increase of more than $1.50 year-to-year. Additionally, multiple states have average prices of more than $5 per gallon and California is over $6.

Before admitting that the continuous surge of gas prices is “affecting a lot of families,” Biden said: “The price of gas at the pump is something that I told you — you heard me say before — it would be a matter of great discussion at my kitchen table when I was a kid growing up.”

Well, if that doesn’t ease your mind, I don’t know what will.

Since we’re borrowing Kanye lyrics to get our point across, allow me to channel Mr. West and speak in the direction of November 2024: “I need you to hurry up now, cause I can’t wait much longer.”

  1. This is a huge price to pay to avoid mean tweets. Congratulations to all the “mules” on your 2020 victory that is costing all of us from gas prices to 401k being down 20%+. It is hard to believe that most people have forgot about the 13 dead Marines. Welcome to the “race to the bottom”.

  2. Biden and, especially his handlers, LOVE high gas prices. Remember back during the BO regime, the “science czar” wished gas prices would soar to $10/gallon…so the U.S. would transition away from oil and gas?

    The war on the average American continues.

    They are purposefully driving this country into oncoming traffic trying to make our lives as miserable as possible so they can usher in their crap Great Reset plan. That’s the plan. Stop thinking they are trying to make anything better. They’re clearly TRYING to wreck this place. How much more proof do we need?
