Director of the National Economic Council Brian Deese took to CNN on Thursday to tell Americans they’re going to have to put up with high gas prices for as long as it takes to back the Ukrainian war effort.

When asked what the Biden administration had to say to families who can’t afford skyrocketing fuel costs, Deese replied, “This is about the future of the Liberal World Order and we have to stand firm.” He said, however, that gas prices are “unacceptably high.” His comments mirrored sentiments expressed at a recent NATO summit by President Joe Biden, who said in a speech Americans will have to endure inflated gas prices for “as long as it takes” to resolve the conflict with Russia.
