The reporters’ questions focused on the possibility of a recession and the situation in Ukraine.

President Biden is optimistic that a recession could be avoided thanks to low unemployment and strong growth in the United States.

The U.S. government is considering temporarily suspending federal gasoline taxes and lowering tariffs on Chinese consumer goods imports to keep prices down.

In the US, about 20% of the price of gasoline is levied in federal taxes.

President Biden said he hoped to be able to announce concrete plans to end the gasoline tax by the end of the week.
