In a typical bout of unrestrained elitism, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki downplayed the rise of gasoline prices to their highest point since . . . the Obama administration . . . suggesting that climate change has to come first.
“Certainly, we all want to keep gasoline prices low, but the threat of the crisis — the climate crisis — certainly can’t wait any longer,” Psaki said.
Climate change is “one of the greatest national security crises the president sees,” Psaki said. What’s more, “a number of other world leaders agree on that front.”
As if what they thought mattered to someone trying to pay their bills and run their car.
The Energy Department is now considering tapping the Strategic Petroleum Reserve. But that won’t solve the basic problem. Your energy costs are going up, possibly way up, as the Biden administration seeks to end the use of fossil fuels. And the White House doesn’t particularly care.
