Well, as if simply having a terrible president wasn’t bad enough humiliation for America, we have to have one that’s so stupid he cancels the pro-energy policies of his predecessor, destroying our energy independence and massively increasing gas prices, and then starts complaining about the gas prices he created. For those that didn’t see it, Joe actually did that last thing:
That’s right he actually said “Did you ever think you’d be paying this much for a gallon of gas? In some parts of California they’re paying $4.50 a gallon!”
I know they are Joe, we all do. But no, we didn’t think it would get this high…until you got into office and took a wrecking ball to Trump’s energy policies. What an idiot.
And, even now that he’s looked up from his oatmeal and realized gas prices are higher than Hunter, Brandon is doing little to push the average price back down to a reasonable amount. Here’s what Hannity reported on the situation:
Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm deflected growing criticism of the Biden administration’s disastrous war on fossil fuels over the weekend; saying she “hopes” gas prices don’t rise to $4 per gallon.
“According to AAA, the national average of gas prices is now $3.42 a gallon. Bank of America is predicting crude oil prices could soar another 50 percent by next June. Could the average gas price in America be $4 a gallon in the United States soon?” “State of the Union” co-anchor Dana Bash asked Granholm on CNN.
“Well, we certainly hope not,” the Energy secretary fired-back.
“Of course, every president is frustrated because they can’t control the price of gasoline because it’s a global market. You can call upon increased supply, which he has done and OPEC is unfortunately controlling the agenda with respect to oil prices. OPEC is a cartel, and it controls over 50 percent of the supply of gasoline,” she added.
“We have the same problem in fuels that the supply chains have, which is that the oil and gas companies are not flipping the switch as quickly as the demand requires,” explained the Secretary.
So, even if you, like Joe, are surprised by and pissed about high gas prices, relief isn’t coming. Contrary to what was said in the woke Star Wars sequels, “hope” isn’t a plan. In the context of government, “hope” is a recipe for disaster. Unfortunately, it appears “hope” is all Team Brandon has in its rusty toolkit. Get ready to decide whether you’d rather pay your arm, leg, or soul for gas, I heard that the traditional numbers-based prices got too long for those boards they use!
