Joe Biden said two words that will leave you red with rage
Joe Biden’s dumpster fire of a Presidency is running up against its biggest challenge.
Biden’s blunders are inflicting massive pain on the American people.
And then Joe Biden said two words that will leave you red with rage.
As Joe Biden implements his Green New Deal-style agenda, gas prices continue to rise.
Biden and the Democrats want to blame the rise in gas prices on Russian President Vladimir Putin’s decision to invade Ukraine.
But that is not true.
Gas prices were on the rise for Joe Biden’s first year in office, as he made the conscious decision to restrict the domestic supply of oil by canceling new oil and natural gas leases, stopping construction on the Keystone XL Pipeline, and ending oil exploration in ANWR.
During a trip to Japan, Joe Biden praised rising gas prices as an “incredible transition” that he hoped would lead to the world ditching fossil fuels and moving to more expensive and less efficient wind and solar energy sources.
“[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,” Biden stated.
That is no comfort to the American people.
Thanks to Joe Biden’s war on domestic energy production, the price on average of a gallon of gasoline just hit a record $4.596.
The price of Diesel fuel shot up to $5.554 per gallon.
Gas prices could even hit $6 a gallon this summer.
The average price of regular gas hit yet another high Monday, reaching $4.596 per gallon — the highest recorded price on record. Mid-grade is now nearing $5.00, standing at $4.971, and premium is well above that, standing at $5.257. Diesel hit a record high last week, but its current average price remained at $5.554 as of Monday.
According to AAA, the current gas price of $4.596 reflects an 11-cent average hike in the last week. Over the last month, gas prices have soared by over 47 cents, and the price is over $1.55 higher than it was one year ago. No state in the country has an average price of gas under $4.00.
The same trend is true for diesel, which has jumped by over $2.37 during the last year, and gas prices are only expected to get worse as the summer progresses. J.P. Morgan, for instance, is predicting a “cruel summer,” with gas prices surging to over $6.00 per gallon.
The dirty secret is that Joe Biden and the Democrats don’t mind higher gas prices.
Rising gas prices are the only way to generate momentum for the Green New Deal.
The American people will suffer along the way.
But Joe Biden doesn’t care.
