While senior White House officials reiterate that tackling unprecedented inflation remains President Joe Biden’s top priority, his administration continues to explore its price containment strategies.
US President Joe Biden said on Monday that a decision to suspend the federal gasoline tax could be made before the end of this week.
He said he could decide as early as this week whether Congress would support the suspension of the 18.4 cents a gallon federal gas tax, which experts estimate could cut prices by 14.72 cents a gallon.

In this context, the White House is reportedly considering sending discount cards to offset the impact.
Fox Business reported that the Biden administration is not ruling out the possibility of discount cards, and that the president has made it clear that he is willing to explore all options and listen to all ideas that will help lower gasoline prices for the American people.
