Congressman Ryan blames Trump for rising gas prices

Posted: Updated:

A recent study shows the price of U.S. crude oil increased nearly 7 percent and rose above $75 a barrel for the first time since the end of 2014.

AAA says the average national gas prices rose from $2.257, from this time last year to $2.884 per gallon.

Congressman Tim Ryan says rising gas prices are taking a toll on not only Ohioans but people all across America.

Ryan says hardworking American families are seeing prices jump on a weekly basis because of President Trump destabilizing the globe.

"It's unacceptable. Energy analysts have pointed to the President's misguided move of pulling out of the Iran deal as a cause of the increases. The President's reckless decisions are coming at the expense of Americans' wallets. He talks about putting America first, but his actions don't seem to mirror that. The minuscule tax benefits families are receiving from the GOP's disastrous tax sham are now being spent on these skyrocketing prices. It's time the President stop blaming others for the mess he's created and step up to fixing our nation's problems," said Ryan.
