President Biden vowed that Americans would be paying high gas prices ‘for as long as it takes’ to defeat Vladimir Putin in Ukraine while speaking during a press conference in Madrid on Thursday.
As The Washington Times reports:
President Biden on Thursday warned Americans that they could be paying high gas prices for a while longer, saying that energy costs will remain high until Russia is driven from Ukraine.
Speaking at a press conference in Madrid, where he wrapped up a three-day summit of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, Mr. Biden was asked how long Americans will be paying a premium for gas.
“As long as it takes, so Russia cannot, in fact, defeat Ukraine, and move beyond Ukraine,” Mr. Biden responded. “This is a critical, critical position for the world.”
Gas prices remain near all-time highs as Americans head toward the July 4th holiday while no end appears to be in sight for the war in Ukraine.
