President Joe Biden demanded Wednesday that gas stations start lowering their prices, in his latest attempt to address record-high prices this summer.
“To the companies running gas stations and setting those prices at the pump, this is a time of war, global peril, Ukraine,” he said.
The president spoke about the record high gas prices occurring during his administration during a speech on his imitation White House set across the street.
“These are not normal times. Bring down the price you are charging at the pump to reflect the cost you are paying for the product,” Biden said. “Do it now. Do it today.”
Biden griped that the price of oil had fallen slightly, but the price of gas had not.
“Some haven’t reduced prices at all,” he complained.
Biden called for congress to pass a federal gas tax holiday and urged states to do so as well, noting that it could help reduce prices.
“I’m doing my part,” he said defensively. “I want the congress, states, the industry to do their part as well.”
Biden again tried to blame Russian President Vladimir Putin for the high cost of gas, even though prices rose significantly before Russia invaded Ukraine.
The president argued that the high cost of gas was the price for defending democracy in Ukraine.
“We could have turned a blind eye to Putin’s murderous ways and the price of gas wouldn’t have spiked the way it has. I believe that would have been wrong. I believed then and believe now the free world had no choice,” Biden says.
He appeared rankled by Republicans blaming him and his administration’s policies for the high cost of gas, suggesting that they did not care about Ukraine.

We’re not a totalitarian dictatorship, Joetard.

But el douchebag presidente doesnt just say “do it” and the entire nation just does it.
Free World? Where is that?
“That is not how it works, that is not how any of this works”
I swear he or his staff are posting on Free Republic.
Biden can shove his constant Ukraine crap right up his wazoo.
His arrogance and narcissistic need greatly outstrip the reality of his life.
Drill baby! Drill!
Short Bus Biden needs to shut his GD lying senile mouth.
It's YOUR war, you pantz-shizzing retard.
LOWER TAXES, JOE!
DO IT NOW!
Yeah. Joe who owns two 7-11 franchises can just take a loss.
Not one of these filthy bureaucrats and politicians ever sacrifices a single thing. But they are sure good at looking down their long noses at people who do real work.
The mud ain’t stickin counterfeit demon.
Whoa, if the Boss Of Everyone says lower prices, you have to lower prices, don’t you? Isn’t that what we didn’t elect him for?
Bidumb must be related to King Canute.
Joe Biden = Norbert Minioin
Shaddap with the wisecracks, or you'll end up in the basements of the DC Lubyanka.
