CAN'T BLAME RUSSIA FOR THIS ONE, JOE: Cruz Blasts Biden for Blaming Russia for Gas Prices

posted by Hannity Staff - 3.09.22

Biden is trying to blame Russia for skyrocketing gas prices —Ted Cruz says not so fast.

Earlier this week, when a reporter asked President Biden if he had a message for Americans on gas prices, Joe cracked wise: “They’re going to go up….Can’t do much right now. Russia’s responsible.”

But the truth is prices were on the rise long before Putin pushed his way into Ukraine, causing an international energy crisis. Ted Cruz isn’t letting Biden off that easy.

“This is a flat-out lie,” Cruz said on Twitter. “Gas prices have increased 48% under Biden—BEFORE RUSSIA INVADED UKRAINE. Biden did that,” adding, “That’s bc Biden: — killed Keystone pipeline. — froze federal leases. — shut down ANWR All, while Biden waived sanctions on Putin’s pipeline.”

Gas prices are currently at all-time highs, with GasBuddy reporting earlier this week that the national average for regular gas is at $4.104 a gallon —and going up.
