Before we get into what Biden press secretary Jen Psaki said at today’s White House briefing, just to set the scene, here’s a chart showing the average price of a gallon of gasoline since Biden took office (via GasBuddy):

At the briefing today, Psaki made it clear she’d like everybody to believe the rise in gas prices only started when Russia invaded Ukraine and it has nothing to do with Biden’s “America last” energy policies:

Oh, puh-leeze!

Hey, who are we going to believe, Jen Psaki or our lying eyes and gas expenditures?

Officials in this administration say out of one side of their mouths that increasing gas prices are a necessity because of their “transition to clean energy,” and then deny the increase in gas prices have anything to do with Biden’s policies out of the other. Which is it?

That’s the last thing this administration will ever do.

Apparently everybody in the Biden administration has a low opinion of Americans’ ability to correctly process what they’re seeing.
