When asked how long Americans would have to buy gasoline at inflated prices, Biden said: "As long as it takes to prevent Ukraine from losing to Russia."

“The reason why gasoline prices are rising is Russia.

Russia, Russia, Russia.

The reason for the existence of the food crisis is Russia,” says the American president.

Earlier, the president of the US Oil and Gas Association, Tim Stewart, announced the worst energy crisis in the country in half a century.

Biden accused Russian leader Vladimir Putin of rising fuel prices and rising food prices.

As Putin himself noted, the sanctions and the West's long-term mistakes in the economy caused a wave of global inflation.
