Republicans: Dear Joe Biden, Here Is How You ACTUALLY Lower Gas Prices

President Joe Biden has taken a range of measures to address high gas prices, but critics say he is not addressing the root problem.


Biden recently announced he would allow more ethanol to be used in gasoline to help lower prices. Critics argue, though, that Biden should increase supply by supporting domestic drilling.

“While biofuels are an important part of our fuel mix, let’s be clear-eyed about what this announcement is,” said Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers, R-Wash. “It’s another temporary attempt that distracts from the energy, inflation, and supply chain crises this administration’s policies helped create. Just like the announcement to draw down our Strategic Petroleum Reserve until close to election day, it’s not been the President’s priority to lower gas prices in the long term.”

Gas prices have risen more than a full dollar in the last year.

“Let’s pull people back from this price cliff and work to pass long-term, bipartisan solutions that promote affordable energy, innovation, and a plentiful and diverse fuel supply for all of America,” Rep. Rodgers said. “The answer is to flip the switch for more domestic production and energy infrastructure here at home. Let’s say ‘yes’ to American energy to deliver the affordability and reliability that people need.”

Biden has blamed Russia’s invasion of Ukraine for the gas prices, but opponents argue they were rising well before that invasion.

Rodgers released a list of ideas for Biden to lower gas prices for Americans:

  • Removing all restrictions on liquified natural gas (LNG) exports
  • Restarting oil and gas leasing on federal lands and waters – which was halted by the Biden administration
  • Immediately approving the Keystone XL pipeline
  • Protecting American energy and mineral development from attacks by the Biden administration
  • Requiring Biden to submit an energy security plan within 30 days and requires the Secretary of Energy to develop a plan to replace oil drawn down from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve
