Ever since gas prices started to skyrocket, the Biden administration has been under constant fire.
In response, the White House pointed fingers at Russia to explain the jumping prices, though economic experts say other factors are at play.
On top of that, many Republican leaders have accused the Democrats in power of actually wanting the gas prices to be sky-high.
Now, the President might’ve suggested exactly that.
Gas prices hit a national average of $4.56/gallon last week, the highest it’s been in a long time. And many polls show Biden underwater in every state.
The two pieces of data might go hand-in-hand, as many Americans blame the current administration for the current struggles.
As the prices rise, Republican leaders have claimed it actually fits in with the leftist agenda — pushing people to ditch fossil fuels.
Maybe that’s why Biden talked about an “incredible transition” (via Breitbart):
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.
In some parts of the country, gas has topped $6/gallon and drivers are definitely feeling the pinch.
To hear the President say we’re going through an “incredible transition” could be interpreted a certain way. Namely, that Democrats want the prices this high.
It’s also important to note that some experts claim the Biden administration could’ve easily averted this issue by simply letting drilling commence in the U.S.
During the Donald Trump administration, the country had moved to almost 100% energy independence, which was a hallmark of the Trump era.
However, Biden quickly reversed these policies and once again made America more reliant on foreign powers for fossil fuels.
On the flip side, Democrats will point toward Biden releasing many millions more barrels of oil. But Republicans say it’s far too little too late.
And now it’s sounding suspiciously like those in charge are quietly supporting these higher gas prices for their “green” agenda.
- President Biden has called the gas price issue an “incredible transition” for America.
- This might be interpreted as Democrats wanting the prices high, so as to further their green agenda.
- Many Republicans claim that Biden could’ve avoided this gas price hike by simply keeping Trump-era energy policies.
