Raimando replied, “The reality is that there isn’t very much more to be done.”

She pivoted to say that it was the war in Ukraine and Putin’s fault for the rising gas prices. This has been the standard line out of Biden’s camp.

“Since Putin moved troops to the border of Ukraine, gas prices have gone up over $1.40 a gallon. The President is asking Congress and others for potential ideas,” she continued.

On Tuesday, gas prices hit another record high and the line about Putin’s invasion of Ukraine as being solely responsible for driving up the price of gasoline is false.

According to the AAA on Wednesday, the national price of gasoline is near $5 on average. In California, the average price per gallon is $6.39.

“Given the global nature of these markets, it’s virtually impossible for us to insulate ourselves from shocks like the ones that are occurring in Russia that move global oil prices,” Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen mirrored the Biden administration statement about Putin driving up the price of gas in her hearing before the Senate Finance Committee on Tuesday.

Despite the prices, consumers are still paying the high prices and traveling has not slowed down, but many are starting to blame Biden and not Russia for the crisis.
