The Democrat agenda depends on deliberately driving up energy prices in order to make their green energy boondoggles appear less outrageously wasteful and destructive than they really are.
That approach has been painfully obvious from the beginning of the Biden administration, which has done everything possible to drive up the cost of energy by throttling supply. One of the very first things Joe Biden did upon occupying the Oval Office was to kill the Keystone XL pipeline, which would have been able to deliver hundreds of thousands of barrels of oil to U.S. refineries every single day.
The inevitable result of these assaults on energy production are skyrocketing fuel prices. While inflation is up across the board, oil and gas prices have risen far faster than other staples. As Americans are rightly concerned about the cost of vehicles and groceries rising by 25 percent or more under Biden, gas prices have jumped by almost 60 percent. Rising energy prices aren’t the sole cause of our current inflation crisis, but they’re playing an outsized role in driving the trend.
