On Monday, the price for a barrel of U.S. crude oil dipped 8%, bringing it below $100 a barrel, which should have provided some much-needed relief to Americans when they fill up their vehicles.

But despite a continued decrease in the price of oil so far this week, prices at the pump haven’t decreased, which has led many experts to suggest that oil companies are gouging on prices in response to the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

You can now add President Joe Biden to the list of those who are sick and tired of Big Oil trying to make excessive profits off the American public.

The president’s official Twitter account made it clear he sees what’s happening:

“Oil prices are decreasing, gas prices should too. Last time oil was $96 a barrel, gas was $3.62 a gallon. Now it’s $4.31.

“Oil and gas companies shouldn’t pad their profits at the expense of hardworking Americans.”


And yet, oil and gas companies are indeed padding their profits at the expense of everyone who drives a vehicle, including working parents who have to commute to work and also make sure they kids get to school and  extracurricular activities such as soccer and softball.

Others joined President Biden in letting Big Oil know they need to stop robbing us all blind.
