Could the Biden administration’s response to high oil prices look any more disconnected from the reality of everyday Americans than this? Biden’s Energy Secretary, Jennifer Granholm, set the tone in May when she smirked and guffawed her way through an answer about the pain at the pump Americans face.
Biden’s Energy Secretary in May: “If you drive an electric car, this would not be affecting you”

Granholm similarly burst out laughing at the idea that the Biden administration may want to produce more oil in order to ease Americans’ pain at the pump.
The point of Biden’s “transition” was to drive up the cost of energy.

The energy secretary is not alone in pushing electric vehicles on poor Americans who probably can’t afford them. Here’s Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg recently discussing tax dollars the Biden administration is spending on a network of charging stations. Of course, this network will mostly benefit the wealthy demographic who own electric vehicles today, not the lower-income Americans suffering from increased prices at the gas pump.

After being told by multiple administration officials that the simple solution to poor Americans’ pain at the pump is to buy a very expensive electric vehicle, Press Secretary Jen Psaki wouldn’t even answer whether or not President Biden owns an electric vehicle.
Doocy: “Does [Biden] own an electric vehicle?”
Psaki: “Presidents of the United States don’t do a lot of driving.”

The attitude of Biden’s administration is too much for many Americans who remember that his 1st official act was killing the Keystone Pipeline.
