High gas prices are a global problem. This issue would be here if Trump, Biden, or anyone else would be in office. Is Biden doing great? Hell no. But his policies have no bearing of gad prices in Canada, Australia, or anywhere else. It still sucks either way

Honestly every advanced economy in the world currently is facing increased prices and inflation and I generally lean toward this being a global issue. Do I think the government could do better though? Absolutely but this is a situation that I do not think the blame can fall singularly on.

It’s singularly Bidens fault. Closing the pipeline caused speculators to purchase oil at a rate that outpaced demand. Now there is a supply issue. FJB and his family.

Biden just ended gas and oil leases inside of the USA Today....

Zaos I still disagree with the pipeline due to its construction time, type of oil, and that it was more for export than import. On the cancelation though I concede the point cause I just saw the headline myself.

Justin just because I think differently than you does not mean I have no common sense the same way I could argue you don't have any for always blaming a singular person for your life's woes. Adults are able disagree on things. Going straight to calling someone dumb or senseless is childish

Biden cancelled the pipelines his first day. FJB and his whole family.

The pipeline itself would have had little to no impact on the price of gas due to not only the type of oil being pumped but also due to the fact that the oil was mostly slated for export and not domestic use. The pipeline would not even have been completed until at least next year at the best rate.

Justin you seem to be skipping over A. the oil was mainly for export, B. the pipeline again at best wouldn't be done until sometime next year leaving prices now unchanged, and C. that the oil sands oil is more difficult to create into gas so it would mostly go to other sectors.

Ah yes Justin a singular pipeline while beneficial is going to make oil companies stop spending their money. Its not like they are already posting record breaking profits. Will closing it have influence yes but they are not going to stop everything they are doing.

Biden closing the pipeline caused speculators to purchase oil, depletion the supply while there was high demand. This is 100% Joe bidens fault. Singularly. FJB and his family.

The government is the problem. They printed trillions during COVID and disrupted the economy in their panic to "do something" when the best approach was to do very little. Luckily Nancy Pelosi has a solution for high gas prices - price controls. That will work. ROFLMAO at liberals. FJB.

This was created with Bidenomics and many other bad policies. Our current administration reminds me of The Scream by Edvard Munch.

Nikki Haley is nothing more than a democrat plant in the Republican Primary that President Trump is dominating. She needs to drop out before she loses her last shred of dignity, if she even has any left at this point.
