Oh, Joe Biden is telling you that he and his administration are working tirelessly to bring gasoline prices down. You’re hearing that from the House and the Senate. But they really aren’t doing anything to solve the problem. And it’s only getting worse.
Here in the desert, we went over $5.00 a gallon this week for the first time ever. I see in California, they are averaging well over $6.00 a gallon. And while Biden is telling us that he’s taking a million barrels a day out the Strategic Oil Preserve, and that he’s thinking about waiving the federal gas tax for the rest of the year, it’s all window dressing. Now, he’s slipped up and shown us his cards. Here is what he said during a press conference with Japan’s Prime Minister, Fumio Kishida, during his Asian tour.
“Here’s the situation. And 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.”
So, let me get this straight. He’s calling the high gas prices an “incredible transition” which tells me that it’s deliberate. You don’t transition from something to something else by accident. It’s planned and executed. He’s hoping that by raising gas prices to the moon, making fossil fuels so expensive, that we have no choice but to shell out an additional $20,000 on electric vehicles. This is all a part of his overall plan. And he’s hoping that when it’s over, we’ll be a stronger nation for it, right? I mean, am I mis-reading what Biden is saying there?
Look, the gas prices are and always have been about changing the way Americans think and act. It has had nothing to do with COVID, and has had very little to do with Vladimir Putin (maybe ten cents a gallon) because we get very little oil from Russia. This is about Joe Biden’s wish to push his eco-terrorist ideas “to save the planet”. What he is missing, what anyone in DC with half a brain should understand is, America isn’t taking too kindly to his “transition”. And America doesn’t believe him when he says it’s “Putin’s gas hike”. It’s not.
America has been an oil consumer since the start of the industrial revolution, and will continue to be for years to come. The reason is simple. There isn’t the infrastructure in place to go to alternative fuels just yet. Oh, it may happen in the future, but today? Nope…it’s nowhere near ready. Try driving an EV from California to New York. See how far you get. My hunch is there are nowhere near the charging stations that would be required for such a trip, and until there are, and until every little backwater town has multiple charging stations, you aren’t going to see EV’s take off. You may see them in town tooling around to save on gas. But America will keep the gas guzzlers for the road trips. That you can take to the bank!
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
