We’re still in awe of that tweet from the White House celebrating the fact that a Fourth of July barbecue would cost $0.16 less than the previous year. Meanwhile, the price of everything has gone up, including gas. As Twitchy reported, President Joe Biden made a brief statement Tuesday about the sanctions he’d be imposing on Russia. As part of his remarks, Biden reminded us that defending freedom would have costs for us at home.
President Biden acknowledges US gas prices may keep rising due to his sanctions:
"Defending freedom will have costs for us as well, and here at home. We need to be honest about that." pic.twitter.com/fuGH7gdc8d

It’s adorable when people say homeboy has nothing to do with the insane gas prices lately.

If only we were still energy independent

What if the United States used our own supply of oil and natural gas instead of buying it from countries that hate us.

If only there were a cheaper alternative, like building a pipeline to transport our own oil from Alaska. That would even create jobs. Man if only someone could have come up with a plan to do that……

Open up the Keystone pipeline 🤡
— RichardWayne (@kswpractitioner) February 22, 2022
Looks like cancelling that pipeline was a huge mistake now doesn't it?

I feel like there's a way around this but I can't seem to think of what it is 🤔🤔🤔

Wyoming and Dakota have been making oil for millions of years. We could get that down to Louisiana and refine it into gas ⛽️ I wonder if anyone has thought of this?

We’ve got the resources here to offset this if the administration allows it.

Or he could adopt Trumps energy policies and crash the price of oil again and put us back to energy independent status. Then there wouldn’t be “costs for defending freedom”

We were energy independent before you. Give it back

I’m not the U.S. President but hear me out…if we became energy independent again wouldn’t it hurt Russia and lower gas prices, just a thought!
— allthesmoke (@Grazier80) February 22, 2022
Or we could just try and be energy independent.

Biden ended our energy independence when he took office.
He needs to restore it now.
— Jeff Withrow (@stl_catholic) February 22, 2022
Could easily be solved by ramping domestic production instead of slashing it like he has for two years. In 2019 we were the worlds largest exporter of refined and crude.

There's no reason our energy costs needed to rise like this. We were energy independent before Biden came in. He's wants to tell Americans to make sacrifices for Ukraine but won't even secure our southern border?
— MJJ (@jacktsnack) February 22, 2022
I have a great idea, let’s use our own pipelines🤯
— james (@jamessalenetr1) February 22, 2022
Too bad we don’t have a pipeline or anything like that, so we Americans could save a little bit
— Mack Molasses (@LAMBOLEGLOCK) February 22, 2022
Hmmm weird we had this pipeline that he shut down and all of sudden prices went up….coincidence??

He can now blame inflation on Russia

People really voted for this
— BILLY HIVE 🐊 (@gatorgang1994) February 22, 2022
Electing this buffoon has cost America beyond calculation.
— David Wohl (@DavidWohl) February 22, 2022
Remember when inflation was only “transitory”?
Prepare to pay more for gas, because Biden just said he’s going to ‘work like the devil’ to get prices down https://t.co/e1AyCE6hjf
