I’ve seen many crooks in my time, but Joe Biden takes the cake for most deceitful. This guy gets away with saying whatever he wants. This man is not at all someone I like. I once thought that Obama was a horrible president, but Biden is by far the worst.
He still continues to perpetuate the same distortions about gas prices and attributes their rise to Russia, but now he is also criticizing Republicans. He’s trying to argue that they can’t blame him for the gas prices and be against the Russian invasion at the same time. Sorry, bud. That doesn’t logically follow, but Democrats don’t know what logic is.
“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.
