President Biden has been blasted for lashing out at gas companies amid the soaring gas prices in the US.

On Saturday Biden even pleaded with the companies that are ‘running gas stations’ to lower their prices to help inflation-battered American.  

In a tweet he said: ‘My message to the companies running gas stations and setting prices at the pump is simple: this is a time of war and global peril. Bring down the price you are charging at the pump to reflect the cost you’re paying for the product. And do it now.’ 

Biden was blasted for failing to understand the basic law of supply and demand that dictates prices and drives the United States’ free-market economy.

The Mail Online reports: His tweet was criticized by Amazon founder Jeff Bezos and even a China government worker who accused the president of undermining the very capitalist principles on which the US economy is founded.  

Bezos said: ‘Ouch. Inflation is far too important a problem for the White House to keep making statements like this. It’s either straight ahead misdirection or a deep misunderstanding of basic market dynamics.’

Biden found apparent support from Chinese state media reporter Chen Weihua.

The communist mouthpiece sent a sarcastic tweet highlighting how Biden was seeking to undermine the principles of supply and demand which dictate prices in a free-market economy like that of the United States. 

Weihua tweeted: ‘Now US President finally realized that capitalism is all about exploitation. He didn’t believe this before.’

The reporter tweeted something similar to Biden in 2021 when he responded to the president’s tweet that read: ‘Let me be clear: capitalism without competition isn’t capitalism. It’s exploitation.’ 

Weihua wrote then: ‘Capitalism is all about exploitation. Period.’ 

Another of those who responded was Texas Senator Ted Cruz who tweeted:’My message to the guy running your teleprompter. It’s YOUR fault. Reverse the dozens of executive orders, regulations & agency actions targeting American energy, and gas prices will fall… FAST. #Bidenflation.’

The president made a similar plea to oil giants in a June 22 speech that read in part: ‘These are not normal times. Bring down the price you are charging at the pump to reflect the cost you are paying for the product.’ 

Biden begging for companies to reduce prices comes shortly after his administration failed to sell even his own party on a 90-day gas tax break.  

According to an NBC report, if the tax break went ahead, the average American would only save 12 cents per gallon. 

As the price of gas continues to skyrocket for American consumers, the Wall Street Journal reported earlier this week that the Biden administration ‘plans to block new offshore oil drilling in the Atlantic and Pacific oceans.’ 

Since March 2022, the president has sought to lay the blame for inflation at the feet of Russian President Vladimir Putin calling inflation: ‘Putin’s price hike.’ 


  1. More total crap from blow hard Joe. As if he doesn’t know the names od the players who own texaco or caltex or whoever. Useless old fraud doing everything in his power to stir up civil disobedience so he can let Americans tear themselves apart.

  2. After the federal tax holiday ends, gas will go back up dramatically. Gas here dropped 50 cents in a week. People saying thank God that gas is going back down. They are being fooled! $6 per gallon by August. That too will be Brandon’s fault 100% and no one elses. Then you see will some gas stations shut off their pumps.



    • If the DOD would ride a peddle bike on their beat demand for fuel would drop to like 5cents per-gallon-they could even put a battery on it and a sun charger if they are too far outa shape to peddle all day&EVERY HOOD RAT gang banger rockets the sidewalks at night stealing in org crime cat burglar RINGS of homeless&just outa jail crew of home invasions on smart phones dispatched by their crime drug&roids/dealer/ boss/pimp-SS so IF they really wanta catch the BAD guys get some fast battery peddle bikes and get to work cleaning up america and taking down the semmie lee williams jr`s of the world which they can`t do setting in the AC car doing nothing

  3. Biden and Trudeau are responsible for the oil crisis. They think its important to make prices punitive so we, the public stop driving, buy electric cars. They just didn’t give us a viable solution to move to. I am not going to buy 20 ceramic heaters for my house this winter and the Liberal World Order can stick their oil prices up their a$ses. This is obvious. Trudeau is even worse as he is not giving any relief on taxes and is adding taxes

    • Oil heaters work best or base board hot water lived in minn for a few years SNOWRAKE for roof for sale

  4. Trump predicted that under biden gas prices would be over 5$pergallon and he was the ONLY ONE SAYING that so the INSIDE SCOOP knew all along just like 911 was a planned event known to all insiders working both sides of the street for better returns on their investments
