Biden Orders Investigation into Gas Prices

Gas prices continue to rise, and Joe Biden is now clearly panicking.

Rather than do something to actually address the problem, Biden is once again looking to deflect blame.

Biden has ordered the Federal Trade Commission to investigate gas prices rather than take measures that would help address the supply chain issues.

Not My Fault

Biden has several routes he can take to address this problem.

Some Democrats have already called on Biden to tap into the national reserve to inject a fresh oil supply into the pipeline.

I believe that will be a last resort because Biden does not want to take a political hit by doing this.

Trump is the one that ordered the topping off of our reserves when the prices had hit rock bottom, and you better believe he would take the credit if Biden went this route.

The second problem is that if the supply is exhausted now and we run into a true crisis during the winter months, homes could be stuck with no heating oil, a situation Biden surely wants to avoid.

The next option is most obvious, which would be to open up domestic drilling again.

That would create problems with his leftist buddies, so that is not really an option either.

The third is pure deflection, which is the route that Biden has decided to take.

Biden has now tasked FTC Chair Lina Khan with investigating the rising costs of fuel that have been driven by the supply shortage.

Biden stated, “The bottom line is this: gasoline prices at the pump remain high, even though oil and gas companies’ costs are declining.

“The Federal Trade Commission has authority to consider whether illegal conduct is costing families at the pump.

“I believe you should do so immediately.”

Even if Khan does point the finger at the oil industry, the report will not be taken seriously because of all the disinformation this administration has spread.

We also know that, in reality, these prices are being driven by a lack of supply, which Biden has even previously admitted by calling on OPEC to release more oil.

Just open up domestic drilling, Joe, and this all goes away.

  1. CA adds $1 per gallon in Taxes – that would be a great place to start an investigation. When all cars are electric, they will lose BILLIONS in gas taxes

    1. they will factor it into license plate fees or tax you by your mileage.this is already being considered.in my state of michigan,they already have an added tax to electric vehicles.the government will get us one way or another.they will never give up taxes !!!!!

    2. Q: Just what will be used to produce elecricity to charge electric vehicles?
      A Coal and oil.
      Q So, what is gained?
      A Profits for those who own stock in oil and coal……

  2. After Joe Biden declared war on fossil fuel, how does he have the audacity to blame them for rising prices. Joe Biden needs to circle back to fossil fuel and let the marketplace determine how fast we move to green. Does Joe Biden know that most of the GREEN Technology is made in China. Joe Biden may want to reconsider how he addresses rising fuel prices and going GREEN.

  3. Get Rid Of F**Kin Biden And Open Our Resources Back From US He Ought To Be Facing Criminal Charges For All He Has Done

    1. Getting rid of Hiden Biden will do no good, they will just insert another puppet that follows orders and does what they want. Get rid of enough democrats so conservatives can take over then we will see some progress.

  4. Joe needs to reverse everything that he ruined because it was going well until he got ahold of the pen take all pens and pencils and crayons away from him and make him put it all back thecway it was when he went into office close the border and secure it again and throw Joe in prison and secure the prison cell by welding it shut and weld sheet metal over the bars so nobody has to look at him either he has done everything illegally and unconstitutional get rid of him and the democlowns too

  5. Joe: before you make a complete fool of yourself (sorry you already have) resurrect the pipe line. That will fix one of your biggest problems and believe me you have many!

  6. Oil and gas companies costs are declining because they are not allowed to spend anything on drilling you nit wits since you morons shut them down.

  7. JEOLUSY OF TRUMP& DEMENTIA PLUS IGNORANT CROOCKED CABINET MEMBERS HAVE ALREADY DESTROYED OUR COUNTRY. THEFT ,ROBBERY AND MURDER IS ALREADY RAMPING UP STATE WIDE . PEOPLE ARE BECOMING HOMELESS AND CHILDREN ARE STARVING YET BIDEN BRINGS MILLIONS MORE PEOPLE. INEPT SUPREME JUSTICES DO NOT FORCE HIM TO FINISH THE BORDER WALL OR ALLOW FOR THE PIPE LINE OR GAS LEASES,WE ARE LIVING UNDER DICTATOR SHIP.NAZI!! TAKE BACK OUR COUNTRY!JAILED WITH OUT TRIALFOR BEING CONSERATIVE.

  8. The BRANDON Administration should be totally removed for the dereliction of not running the country and for his continued NOT doing anything about: Inflation, the border crisis, the supply chain, bring home the Americans from Afghanistan, and his belligerent attitude. He does not reflect the opinions of what our country wants to be done. His VP is worthless and knows nothing about doing her job. For those of you who voted for him…F – – – You.

  9. BRAIN ROT BIDEN is solely responsible for the high gasoline prices.! What did he expect when he stopped oil & gas exploration and production on government lands and when he killed the Keystone pipeline causing oil companies to have to import oil from SAUDI ARABIA ? When TRUMP was POTUS the USA was oil independant and gasoline was affordable. The minute BRAIN ROT BIDEN was sworn in he killed the KEYSTONE PIPELINE OIL AND GAS EXPLORATION AND PRODUCTION ON GOVERNMENT LAND. Causing the USA to have to start importing oil and gas again which caused the price increases !! GOOD JOB BRAIN ROT !!

  10. Isn’t there a bullet or muzzle for Biden,,, this man is ruining America as we Americans have always believed in. Why is Washington allowing this to happen? We the people are so financially strapped for just the basics and gas for our vehicles. Its getting worse by the day,,,what the hell is Congress doing about anything,,,,other than “Nothing”. Biden will start a war here in the USA,,and nobody with half a brain would ever want such thing to happen. I don’t know why this bumbling old fool hasn’t had “Impeachment” chargers brought against him by we the people and also congress. This thats being allowed by politicians is unacceptable to we the people. Shameful on all of Congress to let such an incompetent thing happen right in our faces.

  11. When you sign an executive order that stops the Keystone XL pipeline, stops ALL domestic drilling, and is considering shutting down another major pipeline, WHAT DID OBRIBEM THINK WOULD HAPPEN?
    This move of investigating the oil and gas industry is nothing more than deflection for his bungling, stupid, idiotic policies.
    He doesn’t have the brains to understand that the reason oil and gas companies costs are going down is the moratorium he, himself, imposed on drilling in the US.
    It’s simple Joe, even though you hate Trump, you need to go back to his energy policies. It would benefit you in the long run, but you’re too stupid to see it!!!!
    LET’S GO BRANDON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  12. Biden will kill hundreds of people if not thousands by letting them and their pets freeze to death because they will not be able to keep warm, He is the one to blame so don’t blame Trump Biden you are the as*hole in charge
