Biden On How Long It’s ‘Fair To Expect’ Americans To Pay Historic Gas Prices: ‘As Long As It Takes’ To Beat Putin

Democrat President Joe Biden said during remarks on Thursday that it was fair for Americans to expect to have to pay record high gas prices for “as long as it takes” for Russia to be defeated in Ukraine, even though gas prices were surging well before the invasion occurred.

Biden made the remarks to reporters during a brief question and answer session while in Madrid at a North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) summit.

“The war has pushed prices up,” a reporter said. “They could go as high as $200 a barrel, some analysts think.”

“How long is it fair to expect American drivers and drivers around the world to pay that premium for this war?” the reporter asked.
