During his trip to Asia, which analysts say was a disaster for U.S. foreign policy, Biden actually praised the high gas prices.
“Here’s the situation. And when it comes to the gas prices, we’re going through an incredible transition that is taking place that, God willing, when it’s over, we’ll be stronger and the world will be stronger and less reliant on fossil fuels when this is over,” Biden said in Tokyo on Monday.
“They’re saying the quiet part out loud now. They’re causing you pain at the pump because it’s all part of their radical agenda,” said Louisiana Republican Rep. Steve Scalise.
Georgia, Kansas and Oklahoma, the last three states with an average price below $4 a gallon on Monday, all crossed that threshold in Tuesday’s reading.
