We’ve all heard the narrative that Presidents “can’t control gas prices” which is 100% false, but now the Biden Administration seems to make it abundantly obvious that they’ve intentionally caused gas prices to rise.
Joe Biden’s Secretary of transportation, Pete Buttigieg directed Americans who are unhappy with soaring gas prices, to simply buy an electric vehicle. These vehicles typically average around $50,000 a pop. Obviously, if someone can’t afford $6 at the pump, they’re not going to be able to afford a new vehicle at such a high price point.
Now, Joe Biden is saying the quiet part out loud. “When it comes to the gas prices, we’re going through an incredible transition that is taking place that God willing when it’s over we’ll be stronger, and the world will be stronger and less reliant on fossil fuels when this is over.”
In the speech, the President seems to admit that the high gas prices are either intentional or seen as a good thing in the executive branch of the federal government.
The administration wages war on the fuel industry, as everyday new oil and gas leases are canceled or banned with little rationale. For example, oil and gas leasing was banned on Navajo lands in New Mexico in the name of their sovereignty. The Navajo nation opposed the ban, desiring to capitalize on resources within their own land.
With Biden’s signature, a slew of Trump-era de-regulation in the EPA has swept away and restrictions were put back in place.
Biden also refuses to sign economic hardship waivers for small refineries producing less than 75,000 barrels per day. These facilities produce an essential fuel supply for rural areas like West Virginia, and Rocky Mountain states.
