President Joe Biden says he can’t guarantee that his administration will be able to get rid of inflation. During a press conference, he was asked what he can “promise concretely in these next two years that will help turn the pocketbook for the better in the midst of staving off a recession.” His response, in part, said, “…What I can’t do is, I can’t guarantee that we’re going to be able to get rid of inflation,” Biden said. “But I do think we can. We’ve already brought down the price of gasoline [by] about a dollar a gallon across the board.” In other news, gold prices are up following recent inflation numbers.

President Biden said during a press conference on Wednesday that he can’t “guarantee” his administration will be able to get rid of the country’s inflation issue.

Biden was responding to a reporter’s question asking what he can “promise concretely in these next two years that will help turn the pocketbook for the better in the midst of staving off a recession.”

“And so, but what I can’t do is, I can’t guarantee that we’re going to be able to get rid of inflation,” Biden said. “But I do think we can, we’ve already brought down the price of gasoline about a dollar a gallon across the board.”

He went on to say that oil companies “are really doing the nation a real disservice.”
