President Urges Gas Stations to Lower Prices

He asks the same of cell phone services and banks. 

On Monday, President Joe Biden urged companies running gas stations, banks, and cell phone services to lower costs for consumers coping with inflation. During  a White House meeting, he said that “junk fees” such as bank overdraft charges and cellular phone termination charges were hurting families and that gas station operators needed to lower prices at the pump “now.” 

The president stated, “To the companies running gas stations and setting those prices at the pump: Bring down the prices you’re charging at the pump to reflect the cost you pay for the product.  Do it now.  Do it now.  Not a month from now — do it now.  And it’s going to save people a lot of money.” 

He added, “We’re taking inflation very seriously by enacting policies to bring down costs for people.  And I have to admit to you, my focus is primarily on working-class and middle-class folks.  They’re the ones that get hurt the most, in my view.” 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the president and his advisors to seek God’s wisdom regarding oil and gas policies.
  • For Secretary Granholm to be discerning in the implementation of the president’s energy agenda.
  • For U.S. energy officials as they assess the supply and demand of oil.
