President Joe Biden demanded Wednesday that gas stations start lowering their prices, in his latest attempt to address record-high prices this summer.
“To the companies running gas stations and setting those prices at the pump, this is a time of war, global peril, Ukraine,” he said.
The president spoke about the record high gas prices occurring during his administration during a speech on his imitation White House set across the street.
“These are not normal times. Bring down the price you are charging at the pump to reflect the cost you are paying for the product,” Biden said. “Do it now. Do it today.”
Biden griped that the price of oil had fallen slightly, but the price of gas had not.
“Some haven’t reduced prices at all,” he complained.
