No wonder Joe Biden’s approval rating fell, the fastest of any president in recent times.
Biden and his administration have been trying to blame others for the economic issues that they failed to give action on. The depth of their blatant lies knows no bounds.
And now Biden is shamelessly blaming gas station owners during this “time of war and global peril,” after blaming inflation and gas prices on “Russia” earlier this week.
On Saturday, Biden took to social media to send a “message” to companies running gas stations and setting gas prices. Biden claimed that these companies were overcharging consumers at the pump by demanding that the amount they are paying for gas reflect the price to the consumer. He even ended the tweet with an ominous four words – “And do it now.”
“My message to the companies running gas stations and setting prices at the pump is simple: this is a time of war and global peril.
Bring down the price you are charging at the pump to reflect the cost you’re paying for the product. And do it now.”

Are we the only ones who think the “global peril” began around the time Biden took office? Biden has made an effort to blame others—including Putin, Big Oil, Republicans, and price gouging—for the causes of Bidenflation and he is currently targeting gas stations.
Gas stations are often owned and operated by individuals, not Big Oil companies. They frequently operate as mom-and-pop businesses with very low-profit margins. The cost of gas is not under their control but Joe Biden is threatening small business owners.
Joe Biden has relied entirely on American taxpayers throughout his professional life. He has definitely surrounded himself with individuals who share his lack of understanding of how business operations work.
Hours later, Biden’s tweet was quickly met with criticism.
The U.S. Oil & Gas Association responded by mocking Biden “Working on it Mr. President, in the meantime – have a Happy 4th and please make sure the WH intern who posted this tweet registers for Econ 101 for the fall semester…” and Even amazon founder Jeff Bezos also responded saying that Biden lacked a “basic” understanding of the factors that influence prices and that the President was misleading the public.

Ouch. Inflation is far too important a problem for the White House to keep making statements like this. It’s either straight ahead misdirection or a deep misunderstanding of basic market dynamics. https://t.co/XgKfEICZpk

Well, it’s understandable—sort of—how Biden landed on a uniquely ill-advised proposition. His disapproval is at record highs partly based on economic issues, and Perhaps the Biden regime is just hoping that what remains of his supporters will consider that to be “taking action” to “lower prices.”
