President Biden urged gas stations on Saturday to simply lower prices at the pump as Americans are paying an average of $4.80 per gallon. 

“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,” the president tweeted. “Bring down the price you are charging at the pump to reflect the cost you’re paying for the product. And do it now.”

By targeting individual gas stations, the Biden administration appears to be moving on from blaming oil companies and its “Putin’s Price Hike” talking point. 

Sen. Rand Paul reminded the president the U.S. is not actually at war. 

The U.S. Oil & Gas Association, meanwhile, asked the president to ensure his interns take basic economics.
