Biden More Concerned With Putting Energy Workers Out Of A Job Than Alleviating High Gas Prices

Biden More Concerned With Putting Energy Workers Out Of A Job Than Alleviating High Gas Prices

May 28, 2021

In the past few weeks, more and more states have started to return to normal, which means an increase in travel this holiday weekend. Unfortunately, if you plan on driving to your destination, you might be in for some sticker shock at the pump. Gas prices have soared to the highest they have been in 7 years. The Biden Administration seems more intent on harming the oil and gas industry than helping American consumers afford basic travel expenses.

According to Fox Business:

AAA projected that more than 37 million people will travel at least 50 miles over the weekend, a 60% increase from 2020. The packed roadways will not only affect how fast drivers reach their intended destinations, but it will also impact prices across the board. “With the increase in travel demand, gas prices are going to be expensive no matter where you fill up, so plan ahead,” AAA spokesperson Jeanette McGee said. 

It is exciting that American families have the opportunity to travel again. But it should not break the bank to do so. CNN reports:

The nationwide average cost for a gallon of regular gas is now $3.04, according to AAA, essentially matching the seven-year high set earlier this month, and up 58% from a year ago.

President Biden has only harmed the oil and gas industry since taking office this January. Now when the American people need fuel to travel and help rebuild our economy from the past year, many will not be able to due to the soaring gas prices and shortages. Let’s not forgot this month we saw how important it is to invest in energy infrastructure with the Colonial Pipeline crisis. Hopefully, Biden and his administration will realize that America needs the oil and gas sector to rebuild our economy and decides to invest in American energy and infrastructure before gas prices rise any higher.
