Nevadans blame Biden, COVID-19, Russia for record-high gas prices
WATCH HERE: Nevada tells Fox News who or what is to blame for rising gas prices
People in Las Vegas, NV talk consequences of rising gas prices.
Nevadans pointed to a variety of issues they felt were causing gas prices to surge, including President Biden's policies, the pandemic and Russia.
"He shut off the pipeline day one. Why?" said a lifelong Nevadan, Shelley, referring to Biden’s executive order canceling the construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline. She blamed the president and his environmental policies for raising gas prices.
"Truckers aren't going to be able to afford diesel to bring stuff to the store," Shelley told Fox News.
The Biden administration has repeatedly halted or pulled oil and gas leases and permits. Meanwhile, the president recently pressed fuel makers to increase their output and accused the energy companies of profiteering.
