Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) alleged that the Biden administration is creating the conditions for high gas prices to push Americans into adopting green energy technology such as electric cars.
Cotton told Breitbart in an interview published Sunday that “it’s not unintended or some accident” that gas prices are rising across the country. Since his first day in office, President Joe Biden has taken steps to tamp down on future oil and gas production in the United States by restricting lease sales and shutting down pipeline projects.
“Most notably, more and more people tell me that they’re not even able to fill their pickup truck tank up for the entire week,” Cotton said. “They’ve got to fill up half a tank and hope that the price comes down by the end of the week. That, in particular, is the intended effect of Joe Biden’s energy policy. It’s not unintended or some accident. They want gas to cost $4 a gallon because they want all of us to get out of pickup trucks and SUVs and get into small electric compacts or bicycles or scooters or whatever else Pete Buttigieg takes to work.”
Cotton stressed that high fuel prices along with historically high rates of inflation are hitting Americans’ pocketbooks hard. – READ MORE
