Inflation makes Bezos and Biden quarrel again: “Asking to lower the price of gasoline? Too important issue to make such statements”

MILANO – Inflation still causes the founder of Amazon to quarrel Jeff Bezos con the American president Joe Biden. It was Bezos who launched a thrust against the White House, commenting on the request of the White House number one, who had urged the companies that manage the petrol pumps to “immediately reduce prices” to “reflect the actual costs” they incur. for fuel.

A request that Bezos strongly challenged: “Inflation is too important an issue for the White House to keep making statements like this,” Bezos tweeted. “It’s either a clear diversion or it’s a profound misunderstanding of underlying market dynamics,” Bezos said.

The presidential press office rejected the criticism with Karine Jean-Pierre who recalled that in the last month the price of oil has dropped by 15 dollars a barrel while those at the pump have “barely dropped”. “But I guess,” she tweeted to Bezos, “it’s not surprising that you think oil and gas companies grinding record profits at the expense of the American people is the way our economy should work.”

Already in May, the number one of Amazon had accused Biden to confuse ideas, after the US president had said: Do you want to lower inflation? Let’s make sure the richest companies pay a fair share. “” It’s fair to discuss tax hikes for businesses, keeping inflation under control is important. Putting the two themes together, however, is only misleading, “Bezos replied.
