Well, since Republicans are all about "respect of private property" and "personal responsibility", I'm sure you're completely fine with the gas station owner's decision, right?
Worth noting gas in the US is unusually cheap, compared to other country. In America's hat the average price is $5.936 per gallon atm.
Gas prices are high around the whole world, between the pandemic and the war (and many other factors). Why do you think the president has any control over gas prices? Seriously, I would love an answer because I have never, ever understood this logic. What is the logic? Spell it out for me, please.
Just putting it out there: This is Putin's fault. If you aren't content blaming him, OP, the next most direct no-goodnik would be the corporate profiteeers who chose to raise their prices when Europe took a principalled stand and stopped buying Russian gas. And if you aren't content blaming a corporation, BLAME TRUMP. BLAME OBAMA. BLAME W. BLAME CLINTON. BLAME BUSH SR. BLAME EVERYONE IN OFFICE SINCE 1991. But blaming Biden is like blaming the fire department for the fire because they came running when your house caught on fire after you used candles near a dry christmas tree. People thought Trump was playing keep away with aid money just as a political scheme to help him in the next election. But did you know Exxon ended up going into Ukraine to help them with an energy crisis? Rex Tillerson's Exxon. That one. The same Exxon with deep ties to Russia state gas and oil companies? Did you know that Ukraine had to open it's waters to foreign companies for drilling as result of an energy crisis created by the west agreeing they'd buy gas cheap from russia, and in exchange, no one else would be allowed to sell gas to Ukraine - and made worse when Trump refused to give money to Ukraine that Ukraine had already earned by divesting of its nukes? (We are so behind on the funds we promised to pay them to cover expenses of divesting). I'm sorry you don't like paying more for gas. Ukrainians don't like Putin attempting genocide.
