Trump didn’t hold back.

As the average national gas price reaches $4.25 a gallon, former President Donald Trump has weighed in on what he believes is causing the sharp increase in prices.

In an interview with Fox News, Trump revealed he believed President Joe Biden was responsible for the shocking prices Americans are experiencing at the pump.
“Energy prices are skyrocketing. They are going to infinity, all because of Joe Biden,” Trump said.

The last time states experienced gas prices at these levels was during the 2007-2008 financial crisis.

But, according to the American Automobile Association, the national average has never been as high as it is now.

Beyond the gas pump, Americans are experiencing record inflation and, if Trump is correct, facing the possibility of a world war.

In an interview Trump did with Fox News last month, a few days after Russia launched a full-scale attack on Ukraine, Trump warned the invasion could lead to a “world war.”

At the time, Trump said, “Thousands of people, I mean, this can lead to much bigger than this one are,” adding that “This could lead to a lot of other countries and can lead to a world war.”

Biden is trying to avoid a world war through sanctions by targeting Russia’s “main artery” 一 gas.

When he announced the ban on Tuesday, he also warned American families that the move would come at a cost: higher gas prices.

But critics believe the cost to American families could have been avoided if Biden had prioritized local oil production. Chief amongst Biden’s critics is Trump, who said, “Joe Biden is letting the radical climate extremists run our country while the world burns,” adding that, “Everyone is suffering because our leaders have no idea what they are doing.”

Trump’s criticism is shared by GOP lawmakers who have urged Biden to lift executive order canceling the Keystone XL pipeline from Canada and remove freezes on issuing new leases to produce oil and gas on federal lands.
This, they say, will enable the U.S. to be less reliant on other countries for energy.

“We have the oil under our feet, liquid gold,” Trump said, referencing U.S. oil production, “But instead, we are thinking of buying oil from Venezuela, Iran, and others who do not exactly love America.”

Trump then emphasized that it was time to “Bring back American energy independence and American dominance.”

The former President’s remarks about America becoming self-sufficient when it comes to energy come as Biden administration officials blamed Putin for gas prices.

Kate Bedingfield, White House Communications Director, stated in a tweet, “For months Putin has been saber-rattling, and for months gas prices have been going up 一 up 75 cents since he began his military build-up,” she then used a new hashtag #PutinPriceHike, seemingly to get others to agree, the blame laid squarely at Putin’s feet.
