Former President Barack Obama took only one question from reporters during his first time back at the White House in more than five years.

House members will hear from top executives at six major energy companies on a quite unsubtle topic: "Gouged at the Gas Station: Big Oil and America's Pain at the Pump."

Members of Congress have already seen the stickers on gas pumps back home blaming President Joe Biden -- and, in some cases, themselves -- purporting to take credit for soaring gas prices.

The "Putin's Price Hike" label applied by the White House only goes so far in telling another side of the story.

Democrats have their internal disagreements to contend with when it comes to energy policy.

Of all the huge political challenges facing Democrats this year, rising prices on gas and consumer items may be the hardest to fix and most resistant to spin.

Amid a slew of other actions aimed at lowering the cost of living for Americans, the Biden administration is expected to announce another extension of the pause on student loans.

Borrowers will reportedly not have to make payments until after Aug. 3. Interest would also remain at 0% until then.

"I don't have anything to preview at this point in time," said Psaki.

It comes as the Biden officials take other steps -- releasing oil from reserves to lower the cost of gas.
