The President has absolutely no control over the Keystone Pipeline, offshore drilling licenses, and natural gas development among treaty countries! CNN told me, so it's the truth, bigots!

Good God. These people are allowed to vote, sometimes more than once.

When they can get away with it? Looks like they always get away with it.

The president doesn't say "hey, gas is 4 bucks"

But by

  • stopping domestic production

  • raising taxes

  • forcing companies to invest in green kickbacks

-importing from people his son works for

He can certainly fuck with it

Hilarious when leftists reveal that their thoughts do not even follow a logical progression. Brain damage is apparent and likely irreversible.

Um... yes the POTUS does. The actions of POTUS affect many industries including oil and gas. If these people think the only way to change gas prices is for POTUS to set the price manually, then they really are retarded.

They are so fucking stupid

A presidents policy on oil production 100% has an effect on our supply on USA.

And all market prices are set by SUPPLY AND DEMAND

If the demand for a serve or item INCREASES, and we work to DECREASE supply, not increase it, that dictates a rise on price

Shutting down oil pipelines and attempting to ban fracking = purposely working to lower supply, all while oil demand has risen over 30% since Biden got into office.

So yes, Biden is directly to blame partly for the rising costs, because his personal executive orders are working to lower oil supply, while demand is increasing, aka PRICE RISES

I swear, leftists do not understand supply and demand...

And they don't understand that banning fracking, or shutting down oil pipelines equates to lowering the supply...

So, in essence, she's right that the president doesn't have control over the price...

But he does have partial control over the supply, and he's vowed to, and is working to lower our supply... All while demand is increasing.

It's Obama oil prices all over again.

And yes, gas was $3 under Trump too, until he enacted enough policy to make America not only energy independent, but energy DOMINANT.

Due to Trump policies, USA became the world's top oil producer and exporter! #1!!!

We will lose this title due to Joes policies.

If Trump were president, he'd be working to raise our oil supply / production to keep prices level.

It's a red herring argument.

No one is saying that the president controls gas prices. But that's what they argue against.

You'll never see one of them attempt to argue that executive policy doesn't influence markets. Because even they know that it does.

Right. Pretty sure large scale events across America do actually create a rise in demand for gas and oil, as many travel to get where they need to be.

Large scale events 100% increase demand for gasoline. And when the supply is not increasing with the demand, the price goes up.
