President Joe Biden’s latest gaffe left viewers both laughing and angry as his claim that Americans should pay “their fair share for gas” showed the irony of the president’s failed policies regarding the economy.
The Wednesday comments came as the president spoke about his Build Back Better plan that has passed he House and is now under consideration by the Senate.

If by progress, Biden means increasing gas prices, he’s doing great!
Prices reached a seven-year high recently, an accomplishment that has not happened since, well, the last time Biden was in office as vice president.

But Wait, There’s More
While climate change activists weren’t watching, Biden’s team recognized a way to lower gas prices without increasing oil production. The move was made to release 50 million gallons of gas from the nation’s oil reserves.
.@POTUS @JoeBiden‘s authorization to release 50 million gallons of emergency oil reserves to lower gas prices is contrary to his climate-focused agenda and will only exacerbate our climate crisis while keeping emissions high. https://t.co/S8O4kgi23m

But it’s apparently okay, because the U.S. is sharing it with China and India.
SO JOE… kills the pipeline!
He begging Russia and the Saudi’s to produce more oil to buy…
NOW he wants to use 50 Million gallons of Emergency Reserve to lower gas prices…
BUT GET THIS!

Good thing we get to save two cents per gallon at the pump! Also, the U.S. uses about 337 million gallons of oil per days, so maybe it wasn’t the answer we really needed after all.
Biden admin released 50 million gallons of oil to help reduce the price of gasoline in the USA.
The USA uses 337 million gallons per day.

Regardless, the goofy gaffe isn’t helping the cause. It’s worth a look, as the message tells the truth more than some of Biden’s other speeches about the way his policies are hurting Americans at the pump.
