Via TTN:

Hoping those record gas prices will go down soon? Don’t hold your breath.

On Thursday, President Biden said that it was fair for Americans to expect to have to pay record-high gas prices for “as long as it takes” for Russia to be defeated in Ukraine, ignoring the fact gas prices were steadily climbing prior to the invasion.

The President made the remarks to reporters during a brief question and answer session while in Madrid at a North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) summit.

The Daily Wire reports:

“The war has pushed prices up,” a reporter said. “They could go as high as $200 a barrel, some analysts think.”

“How long is it fair to expect American drivers and drivers around the world to pay that premium for this war?” the reporter asked.

“As long as it takes,” Biden responded, “so Russia cannot in fact defeat Ukraine and move beyond Ukraine. This is a critical, critical position for the world. Here we are. Why do we have NATO? I told Putin that in fact, if he were to move, we would move to strengthen NATO. We would move to strengthen NATO across the board.”

Is this guy insane or what? Gas this high until we convert to solar, wind and battery power? That’s 2050 at best. There will be civil war before that!

Well, I have but one satisfaction: I sure am glad that I didn’t elect that corrupt, brain-dead old sock puppet. And I pity the morons who did.

High gas prices will end when Old Sniffy ends his war on gas and oil.
