Aug. 2, 2022 Tweet - "The current drop in gas prices continues to be the fastest decline in over a decade. 83 cents down and counting since mid-June." Pres. Joe Biden
July 27, 2022 Tweet - "We've now hit more than six straight weeks of declines, making this the fastest drop in gas prices in over a decade." Pres. Joe Biden
July 26, 2022 Tweet - "Gas prices have now dropped 69 cents per gallon over the last six weeks. This drop in gas prices is the fastest in over a decade. We will continue to fight to lower costs for the American people." Kamala Harris
July 26, 2022 Tweet - "A new report says my Administration's actions have played a large part in making gas prices lower. And now those prices are coming down fast." Pres. Joe Biden
July 24, 2022 Tweet - "Make that 65 cents down over 40 days." Pres. Joe Biden
July 23, 2022 Tweet - "Recently, we've gotten a lot of good news on gas prices. But that doesn't change the fact that industry's margins are much higher than what's typical for this time of year. Oil prices are dropping, gas prices should too." Pres. Joe Biden
July 23, 2022 Tweet - "With oil prices coming down 20% from June highs, it's unacceptable that prices at the pump have only come down by half as much. It's time for oil and gas companies to pass these lower costs on to Americans." Pres. Joe Biden
July 23, 2022 Tweet - "Recently, we've gotten a lot of good news on gas prices. But that doesn't change the fact that industry's margins are much higher than what's typical for this time of year. Oil prices are dropping, gas prices should too." Pres. Joe Biden

July 22, 2022 Tweet - "Gas prices have declined by an average of 60 cents per gallon over the past 38 days. Five straight weeks of gas prices coming down." Pres. Joe Biden
July 22, 2022 Tweet - "Today, America's drivers will spend on average $30 less per month on gas than they did during peak prices. For families like the one I grew up in, ending the month with a little extra in your pocketbook counts for something." Pres. Joe Biden
July 19, 2022 Tweet - "I've been releasing about 1 million barrels of oil a day from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve and rallied our global partners to release a combined 240 million barrels of oil onto the market. Our actions are working, and prices are coming down." Pres. Joe Biden
July 19, 2022 Tweet - "When Putin further invaded Ukraine and oil prices went up, the industry was quick to increase prices at the pump. But now that oil is lower, Americans haven't seen those savings. I want lower prices to benefit consumers -- not prop up profits." Pres. Joe Biden
July 18, 2022 Tweet - "Gas prices have been dropping for 34 days straight, about 50 cents a gallon. That saves the average driver about $25 a month. I know those extra dollars and cents mean something. It's breathing room. And we're not done working to get prices even lower." Pres. Joe Biden
July 10, 2022 Tweet - "Republicans are doing nothing but obstructing our efforts to crack down on gas-price gouging, lower food prices, lower healthcare costs, and hopefully, soon, lower your prescription drug costs. This is not right. And that's why this election is going to be so darn important." Pres. Joe Biden
July 2, 2022 Tweet - "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. Bring down the price you are charging at the pump to reflect the cost you're paying for the product. And do it now." Pres. Joe Biden
June 22, 2022 Remarks by President Biden on Gas Prices and Putin's Price Hike Pres. Joe Biden
June 22, 2022 Tweet - "The price of gas is up by almost $2 a gallon since Putin accelerated his military build-up, and those high prices pose a challenge for working families. Today, I'm calling on Congress to suspend the federal gas tax for three months to provide Americans some much-needed relief." Pres. Joe Biden
June 4, 2022 Tweet - "I led the world to coordinate the largest release from global oil reserves in history, directed the sale of gasoline using homegrown biofuels this summer, and more. These actions have already helped to blunt what would have been an even larger Putin Price Hike." Pres. Joe Biden
April 7, 2022 Tweet - "Last week, I announced the largest ever release from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve. Today, the rest of the world is joining us -- releasing 240M barrels of oil in total. This will expand supply for oil and gas companies. Now it's on them to lower prices for consumers." Pres. Joe Biden
March 31, 2022 Tweet - "Americans are feeling Putin's gas price hike at the pump. That's why today, I'm authorizing the release of 1 million barrels a day from our Strategic Petroleum Reserve -- and taking steps to lay a new foundation for lasting American energy independence through clean energy." Pres. Joe Biden
March 31, 2022 Tweet - "When you combine production here at home with less dependence on oil it means more energy security. Between ramping up production in the short-run and driving down demand in the long-run we can free ourselves from our dependence on imported oil from across the world." Pres. Joe Biden
March 31, 2022 Tweet - "We need to reduce our dependence on oil altogether. We need to choose long-term energy security over energy and climate vulnerability. And we can do that by passing my plan to speed the transition to a clean energy future that is made in America with American values." Pres. Joe Biden
March 31, 2022 Tweet - "The oil and gas industry has nearly 9,000 unused permits for drilling on federal lands. I'm calling for a "use it or lose it" policy. Congress should make companies pay fees on idle wells on federal leases and on public lands they're hoarding without producing." Pres. Joe Biden
March 31, 2022 Tweet - "Today, I'm authorizing the release of 1 million barrels of oil per day for the next six months--over 180 million barrels--from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve. This is a wartime bridge to increase oil supply until production ramps up later this year." Pres. Joe Biden
March 31, 2022 Remarks by President Biden on Actions to Lower Gas Prices at the Pump for American Families Pres. Joe Biden
March 31, 2022 Tweet - "U.S. oil companies made nearly $80 billion in profits last year. This isn't the time to sit on record profits. This is the time to step up for the good of your country. To invest in the immediate production we need to respond to Vladimir Putin." Pres. Joe Biden
Dec. 23, 2021 Tweet - "Gas prices are down ten cents nationally, and some states across the country are seeing gas prices at pre-pandemic averages. This will help so many Americans who are traveling this week." Pres. Joe Biden
Dec. 10, 2021 Statement by President Joe Biden on Today's Consumer Price Index Data Pres. Joe Biden
Dec. 9, 2021 Tweet - "Two weeks ago, I announced new actions to help bring down gas prices. I was in Kansas City yesterday, where the average price of gas is down 20 cents compared to a month ago. Nationally, prices are down 7 cents and falling. We're making progress, and we're going to keep at it." Pres. Joe Biden
Nov. 27, 2021 Tweet - "This week, we launched a major effort to moderate the price of oil -- an effort that will span the globe in its reach and ultimately reach your corner gas station. It will take time, but before long you should see the price of gas drop where you fill up your tank." Pres. Joe Biden
