Gas prices are skyrocketing because of Biden

Democrat energy policies are among the worst in history, yet democrats blindly forge ahead to deconstruct civilization in order to bring back the 'natural environment' of a human caveman existence. No cars, no planes, no diesel trucks, no coal-fired electric plants, no gasoline, no heating oil, and so forth.


Back in the old days, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission took its mandate seriously — specifically, to provide:

Economically Efficient, Safe, Reliable, and Secure Energy for Consumers . . . at a reasonable cost through appropriate regulatory and market means, and collaborative efforts.

How the times have changed: We now observe growing favoritism on the part of FERC’s majority toward unconventional energy, wind and solar power in particular. However unsurprising — FERC commissioners are subjected to strong political pressures and have incentives to yield to them as they contemplate their future careers — this shift is deeply inappropriate and will have perverse consequences for years to come.

Republicans have intentionally blocked everything President Biden's administration has tried to do to build back better, and then blamed the administration for a failure to act. It's politics, sure, but it's dirty politics. I only wish the Democrats would get down to the GOP's dirt level and fight dirtier, but I'm not hopeful. The GQP base wants to deconstruct the U.S. and rebuild it via theocratic fascism, so watch the other hand while they're busy pointing at "antifa! Biden! Hillary! Obama! Libruls! Commies!"
Democrats blamed Trump for everything they could, even blaming him for the bad consequences of things they did themselves. But Biden owns the rising energy and gasoline prices that skyrocketed after Trump left office.

Americans who are not hurting because of skyrocketing costs are likely either independently wealthy, addicted to government welfare and largesse, or not totally mentally aware of their surroundings.

You forgot, "or they are mostly self sufficient so the prices don't matter as much."

I walk most places, grow my family's food, raise our meat and eggs, provide my own off grid energy. We only have free TV to watch football and internet through our phones. My job provides me 6.5 weeks off a year and health insurance for my family of 4 at $120 a month. My wife works. My 16 year old son works and contributes. My 13 year old daughter does a lot of work for us. We are fine.

Your post should say "Americans who are hurting rely too much on the government and their policies. Period."

I grieve for the suffering brought on poor Americans by wicked leaders and planners who consistently impose very bad policies that benefit themselves at the expense of the poor. Marxism, loudly and forcefully promoted by leaders of the BLM movement and by democrats eager to appease Marxists, is extremely oppressive and wicked, whether rich and comfortable Americans feel the pain yet or not.

Biden is stupid if he does not know what caused gas prices to skyrocket as soon as he took illegitimate control of the WH. He was the cause. End of story. Period.


President Biden’s decision to nix the Keystone XL pipeline has come under renewed fire as the administration struggles with rising consumer frustration over skyrocketing gas prices.

Sen. Joe Manchin III, West Virginia Democrat, made another plea for Mr. Biden to reverse his Jan. 20 executive order revoking the $8 billion pipeline expansion after the president announced Tuesday he would release 50 million barrels from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve.

Meanwhile, Republicans were quick to connect the dots between the scuttled fossil-fuel project and the pain at the pump.

“As Joe Biden cries crocodile tears over the cost of gas crushing working-class Americans, remember his first action as president: canceling the Keystone pipeline,” tweeted Sen. Tom Cotton, Arkansas Republican. “Joe Biden is responsible for this mess.”

Let's cherry-pick numbers pulled completely out of context.

Meanwhile, the economy is rebounding from a global pandemic.
But at the same time in May we were told gas prices always go up in the summer so it was normal and they would go back down in the fall. But it's fall now so that line of thinking, or at least saying, was not fully truthful or well thought out.

Democrats are celebrating a fall of 2 cents in gas prices this week after gas prices rose more than a dollar in the months since Biden shut down oil pipelines and drilling. What sort of stupid celebration is that? A victory dance for Marxists who cannot do simple math?


The Democratic Party’s lead fundraising arm for electing members to the House cheered a two-cent reduction in the average price of gasoline on Thursday.

While the price of gasoline has declined slightly since mid-November, it remains near its highest level since 2014, according to Energy Information Administration data. On average, Americans are currently paying $1 per gallon more, a 40% increase, than they were on Jan. 25, shortly after President Joe Biden was elected.

More rich, privileged, leftist morons are coming out demonstrating their inability to understand why poor and middle-class Americans are having financial problems as a result of Biden's high gas prices. What a bunch of privileged leftist bozos.

The Washington Post published an article Thursday arguing that gasoline prices aren’t actually very high despite “recent commentary” on the issue.

Rising gasoline prices are a consequence of inflation, which affects all sectors of the economy, Severin Borenstein, faculty director of the Haas School of Business’ Energy Institute at the University of California, Berkeley, wrote in the Post article. He added that the typical American has experienced wage increases that have accounted for gasoline price hikes.
“Do you find it outrageous that it costs more than that today?” Borenstein wrote. “If your answer is no — because the price of almost everything has gone up in the past six decades — then, like me, you may be exasperated by much of the recent commentary on the cost of gas.”
“Although gasoline has become less affordable to those whom society is leaving behind, it has not become less affordable to the typical household,” Borenstein said. (RELATED: Democrats Pop Champagne Corks Over 2-Cent Reduction In Gas Prices, Praise Joe Biden)

However, inflation-adjusted gasoline prices remain near their highest level since 2014, according to data compiled by the Energy Information Administration. While the nationwide average price of gasoline has dipped slightly in the last two weeks, it continues to rise on the West Coast.

The average price of gasoline hit $3.37 per gallon on Friday, a more than 55% increase compared to just one year ago, according to AAA.
Gas prices have also increased far more than consumer prices in other sectors, the latest Consumer Price Index report from the Labor Department showed. The agency’s gasoline index surged 6.1% in the one-month period between September and October, nearly as much as all prices increased over the previous 12 months.
Meanwhile, wages haven’t kept up with gas price increases, according to Bureau of Labor Statistics data released Friday. The average earnings of a private sector employee increased about 4.8% over the 12-month period ending in November.
