America’s current energy crisis, in which gasoline, natural gas, and heating oil prices are soaring, is entirely manmade.

We don’t have to guess why gasoline is soaring past $4 a gallon and even $5 in some states. You can track the increase in costs on a graph, starting even before January 20, 2021, when Joe Biden became president and began kneecapping America’s energy industry.

In November 2020, the average gas price was $2.11 per gallon. By November 2021, the national average gas price had shot up to $3.42 and kept climbing as the Biden Administration waged war on America’s energy industry.

In short order, he canceled the XL Keystone Pipeline and signed executive orders suspending the issuance of oil and gas permits on federal lands and waters.

The United States, which had become the world’s leading producer of energy under President Trump, began seeing Joe Biden begging Russia, Saudi Arabia, and even Venezuela and Iran to pump more oil.

Predictably, congressional Democrats are blaming America’s energy industry for the soaring prices, and now have threatened to punish American producers with a “windfall profits tax” if they start pumping more oil.

Several prominent progressives have admitted that they want gas to become utterly unaffordable in order to drive everyone into electric cars and mass transportation.

As Americans watch in horror as inflation rages and prices are rising for everything, the leftist media isn’t implicating Biden. They are instead blaming Vladimir Putin. Seriously.

On March 21, the Washington Post ran an editorial headlined: “What really caused the gas price spike: Like all presidents, Mr. Biden has little influence on how much we pay at the pump.”

Is it any wonder the “legacy media” no longer has any credibility? How do we discern the truth about the energy industry when the media are relentlessly peddling Soviet-style propaganda?

Daniel Turner is the Founder and Executive Director of Power The Future (PTF).

For nearly 20 years Daniel Turner has worked in communications and public affairs for several nonprofits and various campaigns including in his home congressional district (NY-9) for his uncle Bob Turner’s successful and historic House race in 2010.

Daniel started PTF to advocate for rural energy communities in the power center of Washington, D.C., where policy decisions impact energy workers.
