“The White House has blamed Russian President Vladimir Putin for the record-high gas prices in the U.S., even coining the surge as the ‘#PutinPriceHike’ and vowing that President Biden will do everything he can to shield Americans from ‘pain at the pump,'” Fox Business reports.

Prominent voices from within the GOP blasted Biden on Wednesday for refusing to take any significant action to reduce skyrocketing gas prices and the prices of everyday items.

“How out of touch could they possibly be?” said House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA). “House Democrats admit that no one in their caucus views historically high gas prices as a problem.”
“RT if you agree → Biden should be turning to AMERICAN energy producers for more oil and gas—not dictators in Venezuela, Iran, and Saudi Arabia,” House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) said.
