Oil industry group says White House ‘intern’ who wrote Biden’s tweet on high gas prices should take ‘Econ 101’
Biden has done everything to thwart US energy production: Rep. Fleischmann
Rep. Chuck Fleischmann, R-Tenn., discusses Biden’s energy policy, the Supreme Court’s decision on EPA regulation and fallout over Roe v. Wade reversal.
After President Biden called on "companies running gas stations" to lower the price of fuel in a tweet over the weekend, an oil industry group clapped back, saying the White House "intern" who penned the post should take an economics class.
The tit-for-tat began when the post on Biden’s official Twitter account made a direct appeal to gas stations to simply charge less for gasoline.
"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," Biden said in the post on Saturday morning.
"And do it now," he ordered.

The U.S. Oil and Gas Association was among those who responded with pushback to the president’s tweet.
"Working on it Mr. President," the association wrote. "In the meantime – have a Happy 4th and please make sure the WH intern who posted this tweet registers for Econ 101 for the fall semester…"
The tweet has been retweeted over 20,000 times and garnered nearly 100,000 likes as of Wednesday morning.
