Last week, Biden told reporters that American vehicle owners would have to pay high gas prices for "as long as it takes" for the Ukraine war to end.

Biden has also called for a "gas tax holiday" and a cap on the price of Russian oil to lessen the pain at the pump for U.S. drivers. 

During last week's NATO conference, he described the elevated gas prices as the "Putin price hike" and blamed the Russian leader for surging inflation in the U.S.
