A disturbing number of Americans believe the president controls gas prices instead of oil companies and OPEC.

Many companies have decided high prices are good for profits and don't have any down sides. So no point investing in refineries if people are dumb enough to think Biden is stopping them from drilling and building pipelines. And they love memes using the straw man of electric cars. Because transit would be socialism.
