Not the Bee: Biden demands FTC investigate oil companies for high gas prices

Sleepy Joe forgot he canceled the pipeline as his first act in office, eliminated domestic production, and begged OPEC to help. At this point, how is all of this not a planned collapsed strategy?

President cites ‘mounting evidence of anti-consumer behavior’

By Jackson Lewis on Nov. 17, 2021

WASHINGTON — President Biden urged the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to investigate oil-and-gas companies for any illegal practices that keep gas prices high, according to a Wall Street Journal report. He cited “mounting evidence of anti-consumer behavior by oil-and-gas companies,” in a letter to Lina Khan, chair of the FTC.

“This unexplained large gap between the price of unfinished gasoline and the average price at the pump is well above the pre-pandemic average,” Biden wrote. “Meanwhile, the largest oil-and-gas companies in America are generating significant profits off higher energy prices.”

The president advised Khan to “consider whether illegal conduct is costing families at the pump,” and to “bring all of the commission’s tools to bear if you uncover any wrongdoing.”

Biden penned the letter amid surging gas prices and low poll numbers concerning the president’s performance. U.S. gasoline prices in October averaged $3.38 per gallon while U.S. oil prices averaged $81.48 per barrel, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration. Meanwhile, Biden’s approval rating is sitting at 43%, according to political analysis firm FiveThirtyEight.

    1. Really? Just heard on the radio one poll put approval in the mid to low 30s, disapproval over 50%. The man who won the mostest votes ever !!!

  1. It’s worse than that. Over the last two months, China Joe has allowed 12Mb to be drawn from our SPR and sent from the port of New Orleans to “Asia”, which you may interpret any way that you like, but he is called China Joe for a reason.

    1. These fraudulent overlords delight in ruining the lives of Americans. The goal of this evil is to control and at the very heart of it, to destroy Christianity. To tap our reserves and give it to China is another proof of treason.
      These people need to die. All of them. And you betcha I mean it.

  2. The way you get rid of communism, is to get rid of communists. I have it on good authority that it is not a sin to do so.
