(FreedomWire.org) – In a sign of just how desperate President Joe Biden is for a political victory — any victory — yesterday, he took credit for the recent slight decrease in the price of gasoline consumers are paying at the pump.
A slight decrease that still has the price per gallon at a level most vehicle owners have never paid in their lifetime.
In a tweet Biden said, “folks, as we fight inflation, bringing down gas prices is a big part of the job, and here’s the good news. Gas prices have dropped every day this summer. That’s more than 40 days in a row. We now have 40,000 gas stations in the United States where the price of gas is $3.99 or less. How’d we get the price down? Well, a new report today shows that our plan to take oil out of storage, put it on the market, played a big part. Plus, I’m pressing the oil industry to pump more oil here in the United States, and as the global cost of oil drops, pass the savings on to the consumers. But we have a lot more to do. We’re working with the oil and gas industry to get production up and prices down, even as we stay focused on transitioning to a clean energy economy and I promise you, I’ll continue to do everything I can to bring down gas prices.”
