White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki deflected growing criticism surrounding the Biden administration’s energy policies; accusing oil companies of “gouging” customers with high gasoline prices.
“As we’ve seen the global price of oil come down, we haven’t seen the price of gas come down, so there also is a responsibility for oil companies here in the United States and elsewhere to make sure that they are not gas gouging consumers across the country,” claimed Psaki.

Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm deflected growing criticism of the Biden administration’s disastrous war on fossil fuels earlier this month; saying she “hopes” gas prices don’t rise to $4 per gallon.
“According to AAA, the national average of gas prices is now $3.42 a gallon. Bank of America is predicting crude oil prices could soar another 50 percent by next June. Could the average gas price in America be $4 a gallon in the United States soon?” “State of the Union” co-anchor Dana Bash asked Granholm on CNN.
“Well, we certainly hope not,” the Energy secretary fired-back.
