On Thursday, Saudia Arabia exposed Joe Biden for his ploy to delay cutting oil production until after the November 8th Midterm Elections in an attempt to keep off gas price hikes until afterward. The government, which leads the OPEC+ oil behemoth, rejected Biden’s appeals last week. The move will likely make gas prices rise ahead of the Midterms. This will be a political problem for Joe Biden and Democrats, who hold tight majorities in both. chambers of Congress.

Rises in gas prices before the midterms could be a disaster for Democrats. Americans have been going through a recession that has many Biden voters wishing they just kept Trump in office.

Fox News reports:

“The government of the kingdom clarified through its continuous consultation with the US administration that all economic analysis indicates that postponing the Opec+ decision by a month, according to what has been suggested, would have had negative economic consequences,” read a Thursday statement from the Saudis, according to the Guardian.

The Biden administration responded to the decision with outrage, declaring Wednesday that the U.S. would “reassess” its relationship with the Saudis.

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre went so far as to accuse the Saudis of siding with Russia on Tuesday. She announced Biden’s plans to take a step back from the long U.S. alliance with the Saudi government, though both the president and the administration have refused to offer details on potential actions.

In addition to potential electoral fallout in the U.S., many European countries are facing strained energy supplies this year as Russia has limited exports in retaliation to Western economic sanctions over President Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine.

During a Tuesday briefing, Jean-Pierre said, “We believe by the decision that OPEC+ made last week, [Saudi Arabia is] certainly aligning themselves with Russia.” She added, “And right now, this is not the time to be aligning with Russia, especially with this brutal, unprecedented war that they started in Ukraine.”
