Gas prices are set to hit record highs and Joe Biden already has his new excuse lined up:
Forget record inflation that sent gas prices soaring. Forget the fact that the Biden Administration has been openly hostile to the oil and gas industry since they arrived in office. Now, the gas price increase is 100% Putin’s fault according to Biden and Senate Democrats. How convenient.
Today, the Wall Street Journal published a scathing editorial, ripping President Biden’s assault on the American oil and gas industry, dubbed “Biden’s U.S. Oil Embargo,” a crucial reason we are not 100% energy independent. Their summary of the current situation is on-point: “Mr. Biden bemoans today’s skyrocketing gas prices, yet he remains hostage to the green-energy donors whose policies guarantee higher prices. The President is enabling Vladimir Putin’s energy leverage even as he claims the opposite.”
In the face of overwhelming evidence that the administration must completely reverse course and aggressively expand oil and gas development and pause/rescind all regulations designed to curb consumption and production, they are sadly doing the opposite.
Just yesterday, the White House Economic Advisor said the only way to energy independence is to fully eliminate fossil fuels!
Clearly, some people aren’t paying attention…
Statement from NRSC Spokesman T.W. Arrighi: “Joe Biden and Senate Democrats must think Americans have amnesia. Since Joe Biden took office, inflation has run rampant, sending fuel prices through the roof. Making matters worse, he has relentlessly attacked and suffocated the domestic oil and gas industry – all without a plan to fill the energy gap. Well, now the Democrats’ kowtowing to Green New Deal radicals is coming back to bite them and they’re praying voters forget the policy failures that got us to this point. Putin opened the proverbial jar of record gas prices, but Biden helped loosen the lid.”
