President Joe Biden took aim at Russia on Tuesday in an attempt to shift blame for soaring gas prices.
As The Daily Wire reports:
Democrat President Joe Biden refused to take any ownership of the historic gas prices that Americans are facing right now when asked about the matter on Tuesday as he then proceeded to deflect blame on Russia.
“They’re gonna go up,” Biden said when asked in Texas about gas prices, which reached record-breaking levels this week.

Biden’s statements came as the average price of U.S. gas hit a new all time record on Monday. The price is expected to continue to rise in the coming weeks and months as Russian oil continues to be prevented from reaching markets due to U.S. and European sanctions.
