Biden’s Latest Band-Aid Solution for Gas Prices, Job Creators Network Reacts

Washington, DC (June 22, 2022) — Today, President Biden called on Congress to suspend the federal gas and diesel taxes for the next three months.

Alfredo Ortiz, President and CEO of the Job Creators Network, released the following statement: 

“President Biden’s proposed temporary gas tax suspension is a band-aid solution to runaway gas prices. To truly show leadership and meaningfully reduce Americans’ pain at the pump, Biden must fundamentally reshape his party’s environmental policy, strongly backing the production and distribution of traditional energy. Only with vastly increased supply can gas prices significantly fall. Three-quarters of small businesses, according to JCN’s latest SBIQ poll, want the Biden administration to increase oil and gas production and transportation. Unfortunately, Biden is beholden to the radical greens in his party, so Americans shouldn’t expect meaningful gas price relief anytime soon.”
