Christina Pushaw spokeswoman for Ron DeSantis (R-Fla) responded to the claim made by Biden:
Oh so now presidents control the price of gas? Last month it was beyond your control. By the way, everyone remembers what it cost before you became president. It's twice as expensive now. Food is also becoming extremely costly.
Biden has tried to redefine inflation and downplay his ability to affect the gasoline markets while in office. The approach of the Biden administration to treat these crises like communications problems has not appeared to work. His approval rating for the first year and a half in office reached the lowest levels in history.
Steve Milloy a former Trump and Pence EPA transition member said that Biden’s depletion of the SPR is a danger to national security.
