Transparency is always welcomed during times of economic and social unrest.
Enough of the gaslighting! We all know why gas prices are high after all — it’s about time someone from the Biden administration admits it!
Gas prices are “unsustainable,” but there is no “quick fix,” Biden’s Secretary of Energy Jennifer Granholm said this week.
“It is unsustainable for many and unfortunately, there’s not a quick fix. However, your point about also accelerating our progress toward clean energy is very, very important,” she added, suggesting that the current situation poses an opportunity to advance the Biden administration’s green initiatives.
"At what point do these [gas] prices…become unsustainable?"

On that same front, National Climate Adviser Gina McCarthy recently suggested that Big Tech should step in and censor individuals who oppose President Biden’s climate change agenda.
Granholm, however, also made waves this week after asserting that rising gas prices serve as a “very compelling case” to purchase an electric vehicle.
“If you filled up your EV and you filled up your gas tank with gasoline, you would save $60 per fill-up by going electric rather than using gasoline but it’s a very compelling case, but again, we want to bring down the price at the point of purchase,” the energy secretary stated, even as she “recently served as director of an electric car company – and held millions in the firm’s stock,” according to the Daily Mail.

Granholm’s remarks come nearly a month after a contentious exchange with Sen. Josh Hawley during a hearing last month, where she continued to deny that the Biden administration had anything to do with rising gas prices, telling the Republican senator, “you can thank the activity of Vladimir Putin for invading Ukraine.”
“With all due respect, Madam Secretary, that’s utter nonsense,” Hawley responded as Granholm asserted, “It is not administration policies that have affected supply and demand.”
Granholm’s numerous admissions about historic gas prices tell you everything (seriously, everything) you need to know about the Democrat Party.
Overrun by globalist tyrants, the hyper-elitist crowd of wealthy politicians will sincerely advise the American people to shell out tens of thousands of dollars for an electric vehicle during an economic recession.
We can barely feed our families but, sure, let’s all buy an electric vehicle — as long as it isn’t a Tesla!
