“Russia is also the largest oi- — one of the largest oil producers in the world. We cut off Russian oil into the United States, and our partners in Europe did the same, knowing that we would see higher gas prices.”

We use so little Russian oil here. Much less than we export elsewhere. But the sanctions are affecting world markets. This is more about refinery capacity (something Bush Jr. helped initiate) and sending our oil and refined products offshore.

The oil companies are happy with Joe — with the price of crude well over $100.

So you sacrificed your own people, because you were too stupid
to foresee the boomerang effect of your sanctions, and getting us
closer to WWIII than any other POTUS? Congrats to your coming

He also said the sanctions would destroy the Russian economy by crushing the value of the ruble and that the objective was regime change in Moscow. The ruble is now stronger than ever, Putin’s more popular than ever in Russia, and it is the American dollar that is losing its purchasing power.

Inflation was nearly this high before Putin invaded Ukraine.
Jerome Powell said so.
No Nancy, Joe, it is not “the Putin price hike.”

Price for a barrel of oil today: $117.59
Price for a barrel of oil in 2014: $120.45
Price of gas in 2014: $3.13
Price of gas in 2022: $4.67
So why are gas prices a dollar and a half higher per gallon today than they were in 2014?
Because Big Oil corporations are hiking prices to rake in record-setting profits.

"Sometimes when I try to understand a person's motives, I play a little game. I assume the worst. What's the worst reason they could possibly have for saying what they say and doing what they do? Then I ask myself, 'How well does that reason explain what they say and what they do?'" GRRM
