President Biden expected to travel to Saudi Arabia amid rising gas prices

Also available on the nbc app

President Biden is set to travel to the Middle East, breaking his campaign pledge to make Saudi Arabia a “pariah” over its human rights record. This comes as gas prices soar in part from the U.S.’s ban on Russian oil exports. The White House denies that the visit will primarily focus on getting the country to pump more oil, but U.S. officials acknowledge oil is a key factor.
