President Biden announced that the nation is going through an “incredible transition” away from fossil fuels due to the high gas prices experienced nationwide.

Biden announced gas prices during a joint press conference with Japan Prime Minister Fumio Kishida on Monday.

"Here’s the situation. And when it comes to the gas prices, we’re going through an incredible transition that is taking place that, God willing, when it’s over, we’ll be stronger and the world will be stronger and less reliant on fossil fuels when this is over,” Biden stated, appearing to justify or praise those sky-high prices Americans face at the pump.

Biden’s remarks come amid a stretch of record-high gas prices, which the American Automobile Association states is “unprecedented.”

The national average for a gallon of regular gas stands at $4.56 as of Monday, which is over $.40 higher than it was only a month ago.

In parts of the country like California, however, the average price for a gallon of regular gas reached $6.06 on Monday.

Biden continued throughout the press conference on Monday that his administration has taken steps to prevent the price at the pump from going even higher, such as the release of 1 million barrels of oil from the U.S. Strategic Petroleum reserve.

“And what I’ve been able to do to keep it from getting even worse — and it’s bad. The price of gas at the pump is something that I told you — you heard me say before — it would be a matter of great discussion at my kitchen table when I was a kid growing up. It’s affecting a lot of families,” Biden announced.

“But we have released over two hundred and, I think, fifty-seven thousand — million barrels of oil, I should say. Us and the rest of the world were convinced to get involved. It’s helped, but it’s not been enough,” he went on.

The White House has shifted some accountability for higher gas on Russia's attack on Ukraine, calling it a “Putin spike at the gas pump.”

“Let me first say that Americans are paying a higher price at the pump because of the actions of President Putin,” then-White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki explained to reporters in March. “This is a Putin spike at the gas pump, not one prompted by our sanctions.”

Biden’s remarks on Monday were mocked by many Republicans who announced that the President is now “saying the quiet part out loud now.”
