President Biden said that the country is going through an “incredible transition” away from fossil fuels via the high gas prices being experienced nationwide.
Biden made the statement on gas prices during a joint press conference with Japan Prime Minister Fumio Kishida on Monday.
“Here’s the situation. And when it comes to the gas prices, we’re going through an incredible transition that is taking place that, God willing, when it’s over, we’ll be stronger and the world will be stronger and less reliant on fossil fuels when this is over,” Biden said, seeming to justify or praise those sky-high prices Americans face at the pump.
Gas prices hit a new high for the 12 straight day on Monday.
Gas prices reached $4.59 on Friday. This was a new all-time record high for gas prices in America. It was the 11th straight day of all-time record high gas prices.
