This article by Forbes explains who is at blame for rising gas prices and why the prices are rising. Myself, like many others, often made jokes and blamed rising gas prices on president Biden and his cabinet. However, after learning more about the situation I am not quite sure he is to blame. Of course there are many policies he has instated that have and will continue to effect gas prices such as canceling the construction of the keystone pipeline (which is a whole other topic to be argued). But, in a free market country, we cannot be so quick to blame the government for private companies rising their prices. Because the government has such little control over these massive petroleum corporations, it is hard to blame the government for these companies rising their prices. In conclusion I would argue that rising gas prices have to do with the new control from the Biden Administration but, they are surely not to blame for all of it.
