June 20 (Reuters) - U.S. President Joe Biden said on Monday that a decision on whether to pause a federal gasoline tax could come by the end of this week.

"Yes, I am considering it," Biden told reporters. "I hope I have a decision based on data I am looking for by the end of the week."

The president also said he wanted more answers on why energy companies were not refining more oil. (Reporting by Nandita Bose; writing by Kanishka Singh; Editing by Sandra Maler)
