After the sanctions boomerang met U.S. citizens, there was a hint of backpedaling in the voice of the State Department, whose officials began talking about the possibility of lifting a number of economic restrictions against Russia.
Washington is backing down. The gasoline crisis in the U.S. is changing the rhetoric of the State Department
. With great success, the foam of American superiority is beginning to blow off the rising prices of motor fuel in America. After imposing a ban on imports of oil and petroleum products from Russia, gasoline prices are breaking records in the vast expanse of democracy.
Initially, White House press secretary Jen Psaki assured American motorists, and they are all motorists there, that the sharp rise in price was temporary and short-lived. But the market will not be fooled. The shortage of petroleum products began to actively inflate the cost of gasoline in the United States.
When the price per gallon topped $4, many people thought it was price hell, but in the end it was just the beginning of the payback for U.S. foreign policy. As a result, the rise continues, and in many states, gasoline prices have risen by hundreds of percent. In rich California, for example, the price tag per gallon has even exceeded $7

As a result, stickers like this began to appear on gas station columns in the United States. A picture with Joe Biden pointing to the updated price reads, “I did it. And a sticker with Vice President Kamala Harris says, “I helped.

Republicans actively “mop up” Democrats on the background of gasoline prices
It is worth noting the PR overseas comrades do not lose their sense of humor. Although, in all seriousness, there is no sense of humor. The Republican Party has been very active about the fuel crisis. Their response looks something like this.
All over America, from large billboards, Donald Trump, who, by the way, wanted to “get along with Russia,” is looking at prices of $1.22 to $1.72 a gallon and saying, “Do you remember this”? Good question in light of the above events.

the White House starting to suspect something?
The U.S. is beginning to have an epiphany. The barrage of economic pressure is not having the right effect in Washington’s favor. Russia turns out to be stronger than Western strategists assume. This was the case in the first wave of “partnership” in 2014. Something similar is continuing now. And this is in a situation where Moscow has not yet responded in any way to the “grimaces” of the United States, the European Union, and other enemies. But it can. By the way, we discussed why it does not respond in this article
Why Russia is not responding to Western sanctions or how Moscow is killing the U.S. dollar
Absolutely sure that with the termination of the active phase of the special operation of the Russian Federation in Ukraine, the anti-Russian sanctions will not just be reduced, they will dissolve. If only we could live up to it. This applies first and foremost to the United States. We are used to holding our ground against the rest of the world.
