Senator Josh Hawley blames Biden for rising US gas prices

Senator Josh Hawley urged Americans to realize who is really to blame for rising energy prices in the US. In a conversation with the Minister of Energy, the senator said that shifting responsibility to Russian President Vladimir Putin is “complete nonsense.”


Hawley recalled that in January 2021, the average price per gallon in his state was 2 dollars and 7 cents, and already in August 2021, long before the special operation in Ukraine began, the price increased by more than 30% and has continued to rise since then. since. After that, he listed the decisions made by US President Joseph Biden after taking office as president.

«He ordered federal agencies to eliminate all support for fossil fuels. He introduced new regulations regarding oil, gas and methane emissions. This is only in the first few days. Do you want to say that this did not affect our energy supply in any way?» Hawley said, urging us to rely not on the opinions of people, but on facts.
