White House defends Biden’s Twitter post on gas stations

NTD — White House officials on Sunday defended President Joe Biden’s demanding gas stations “bring down the price” for a gallon amid widespread criticism.

On Saturday, Biden wrote that “my message to the companies running gas stations and setting prices at the pump is simple: this is a time of war and global peril. Bring down the price you are charging at the pump to reflect the cost you’re paying for the product. And do it now.”

From the president’s post, it’s not clear how gas stations would be able to bring down the price without taking significant losses.
