Eye-watering gas prices in the US are here to stay according to White House spokesman Brian Deese who told Americans its the price they have to pay “for the future of the liberal world order and we have to stand firm.”
CNN asked Deese what he would tell struggling American families who cannot afford Biden’s sky-high prices at the pump for months, let alone years to come.

That’s when Deese said the quiet part out loud and exposed the Biden administration’s real intentions.
Deese’s disturbing comment did not go down well on Twitter with many users taking the opportunity denounce the new “liberal world order.”
Biden himself went on record this week saying Americans will have to stomach high gas prices “as long as it takes” to beat back Russian President Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine.
“As long as it takes, so Russia cannot in fact defeat Ukraine and move beyond Ukraine,” Biden told reporters Thursday in Madrid, in response to a question about how long high gas prices might persist. His comments echoes those of U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson, his closest geopolitical ally and one who is facing similar pressures back home about the cost-of-living crisis.
Bloomberg reports the national average gasoline price hit a record this month above $5 a gallon, even after Biden ordered a historic release from US reserves earlier this year. Prices at the pump have been a main driver of inflation, which has been a major political headache for the Biden administration.
