On Tuesday, while attending an event in Texas, President Joe Biden deflected responsibility for the rise in gas prices, while simultaneously putting all the blame on Russia.
When asked if he could do anything to combat the rising prices, Biden said, “I can’t do much right now. Russia’s responsible.”

Biden’s refusal to take responsibility for the economic conditions within his country come during a time when the price for a gallon of gas rose to $4.104, which broke a previously-set 2008 record of $4.103.
