Vice President Kamala Harris and Transportation Secretary Pete “Pothole” Buttigieg have both made bewildering statements on how Americans can survive the skyrocketing gas prices.
Soaring Gas Prices
As of Monday evening, the average gas price across the United States surpassed $4.10 per gallon, marking its highest level since 2008. According to GasBuddy, it was up from $4.009 per gallon, as of Sunday.
Gas prices can only be expected to keep spiking because of butcher dictator Vladimir Putin’s choice to invade Ukraine at will and commit heinous war crimes in World War II-style battles.
Against this highly worrying backdrop, both Pothole Pete, who appears to be mired in corruption scandals, and Kamala, whose bizarre attempts to deter Putin have been a total failure, advised Americans.
In their puzzling reactions to the gas price situation, Harris and Buttigieg urged Americans to just go out and buy electric cars, thus immediately “transitioning” to green energy.
The increase of gas prices in the United States has been a consequence of the Biden administration’s pro-inflationary policies.
The bizarre “overnight green transition” comments by Kamala Harris and Pete Buttigieg came on Monday as the Biden administration announced a new $3.7 billion package for improving public transportation, including through the purchase of electric buses.
Joe Biden's America is 14-year high gas prices, 40-year high inflation, 21-year high illegal immigration, and a 25-year high murder rate.

You still don't get it. They want your gas prices going up. You're being played.

Before the narrative gets too carried away: Gas prices aren't up because the White House is banning Russian oil. They're up because Joe Biden campaigned on an energy "transition" away from oil and launched a war on domestic-U.S. production.

Go Green, Never Mind the Cost, Kamala and Pete Say
In her statement, Harris declared that “we are” in the middle of a “turning point.”
Kamala went on to argue that right now, miraculously, the United States can “address the climate crisis” while generating economic growth by having Americans immediately start to purchase electric cars and ride electric public transportation buses.
Transportation Secretary Buttigieg also echoed Kamala’s words with respect to what is at best a long-term solution. Meanwhile, Americans need relief at the pump right now and are bound to need it even more over the upcoming weeks and months.
Buttigieg praised public transportation because it causes less pollution, and fewer traffic jams, as he touted the fact the new electric buses would not be polluting at all.
As Kamala and Pothole Pete were pushing electric vehicles and public transportation, none of them explained how to alleviate the plight of American drivers now suffering from the growing gas price hikes.
Both of them also ignored the fact that the average price of an electric car is $56,437, which is $10,000 more than the average car price, according to Kelley Blue Book.
“Are you kidding me?” reacted United States Representative Markwayne Mullin of Oklahoma, as cited by The Daily Mail.
Mullion blasted Kamala and Buttigieg for being absolutely “tone deaf” to the problems of everyday Americans, stemming from the spiking gas prices.
With Russia’s oil production and trade now severely hampered because of Putin’s massacres of Ukrainian civilians, pundits are warning that oil prices per barrel might surpass $200 in the near term, having already gone past $130 per barrel.
“If you can’t afford $5-a-gallon gasoline, go buy a $56,000 electric car.” – Pothole Pete Buttigieg

You can say you regret voting for Biden all you want, we're still on the brink of war with all-time high gas prices
As Kamala said, "you get what you voted for"

Someone should tell Kamala how you charge electric vehicles!
