In a response to soaring U.S. energy prices, President Biden has called for a three-month suspension of America's national gasoline tax.
Addressing the nation from the White House, Biden highlighted that the move will give families some relief by bringing down the price of gas.
However, he noted that this alone will not fix the problem.
This comes as Biden is reportedly considering scrapping Trump-era tariffs on a range of Chinese goods to curb inflation.
Citing sources, Reuters reported that a decision is unlikely before next week's G7 Summit.
