"The only way we can secure a woman's right to choose is for Congress to secure the protections of Roe v. Wade as federal law."

Prior to the overturning of Roe v. Wade, Biden made headlines after he revealed he was "considering" a federal gas tax holiday.

On June 22, 2022, he then called on Congress to suspend the federal gas tax until September to help ease the financial stress the soaring prices have put on Americans.

"By suspending the 18-cent gas tax, federal gas tax for the next 90 days, we can bring down the price of gas and give families just a little bit of relief," Biden said in a speech from the White House, via CNN.
