Biden Scolds Republicans Over Gas Prices and Russian Invasion (VIDEO)
Joe Biden is as crooked of a crook as I’ve ever seen. This guy can say whatever he wants and just get away with it. I really don’t like this man at all. I used to think that Obama was bad, but Biden is far far worse than Obama ever was.
He continues to tout the same lies about gas prices and blaming them on Russia, but now he’s even scolding Republicans. He’s claiming that they can’t blame Biden for gas prices and oppose Putin at the same time because as Biden states, it’s Putin’s fault.
“So, for all those Republicans criticizing me for high gas prices in America, are you now saying we were wrong to support Ukraine and stand up to Putin? Are you saying that we’d rather have lower gas prices in America than Putin’s iron fist in Europe?” Biden said.

Well, it’s easy to do both. I can blame Biden and Russia. Let me explain. First of all, take a look at the following chart:
Did the Russian invasion cause gas prices to go up? Yes, certainly they did. But let’s not be narrow visioned here and ignore everything that led up to the point in which Russia invaded. Based on this chart, and I’m just estimating the exact prices, gas looks to be around $2.25 per gallon. That’s acceptable for a gallon of gas. That’s a good price. Personally, $2.50 and under looks good to me. But gas was already up to around $3.50 per gallon at the time that Russia invaded Ukraine. That’s approximately a 56% increase.
Just look at the chart. There is a reason that the prices went up when he took office and that’s because on the very first day he shut down a large portion of domestic oil production. So, of course that’s going to raise the prices because not only are we producing less, but we have to start paying more for it by buying it overseas.
