Biden’s White House blasted over odd social media post

President Joe Biden seemed to be contradicted about the price of gas, but this time from his own Twitter account.

Biden’s remarks came this week just weeks ahead of the November midterms.

The post

“It’s simple: When the cost of oil comes down, we should see the price at the pump come down as well. That’s how it should work,” Biden’s Twitter post read.

“But right now, refiners and retailers are making record profits at the expense of the vast majority of Americans. It’s unacceptable,” he added.

The post actually showed that oil prices going down does match gas prices going down, appearing to contradict the president’s comments.

The problem

Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz pointed out that the president is following through on his campaign promise.

“When Joe Biden was campaigning for president, he repeatedly promised to shut down US oil and gas production,” Cruz wrote. “He’s followed through with that.”

The odd contrast by the president is one of many issues with the Biden White House it comes to explaining gas prices.

The prices may be “lower” now, but that’s down from records set under Biden less than two years after normal prices before he was in office.
