Palatine, IL – President Biden and politicians in Washington have been quick to point fingers as families struggle with surging prices at the pump and across our economy. President Biden tweeted yesterday about the cost of gas since its peak just weeks ago, claiming Americans are saving money at the pump now. In reality, his failed energy policies have led to a near doubling of price per gallon since taking office in January 2021.

8th Congressional District Candidate Chris Dargis released the following statement: 
“Leadership means taking responsibility for your decisions, and it’s clear the White House and Congressional Democrats are devoid of leadership right now. First President Biden claimed he had no way to influence gas prices as they reached their peak, now he’s demanding applause while families are forced by rising costs to make choices between food, medicine, and gasoline. We need representatives who will fight for our families and know leadership means putting people ahead of politics.”
