President Joe Biden told reporters that he hadn’t decided whether to visit Saudi Arabia to beg for more oil before seconds later saying he was indeed planning a trip there.

He is expected to approach the Saudis, one of the world’s largest oil producers, in an attempt to improve diplomatic relations and help bring down US gas prices

‘Have you decided whether or not to go to Saudi Arabia,’ Biden is asked by a reporter.

‘No, not yet,’ the president replies on camera.

But moments later as Biden spoke on the tarmac in Los Angeles at the foot of Air Force One, the president said that he was in fact going.

‘What would be holding up the decision at this point? Are there commitments from the Saudi’s you’re waiting for?’

‘It happens to be a larger meeting taking place in Saudi Arabia. That’s the reason I’m going’, he said. ‘It has to do with national security with the Israelis. It has to do with much larger issues than the energy.’
