Biden Makes A Stupid Mistake, Sending Gas Prices Much Higher

Gas prices have skyrocketed during Joe Biden’s administration, which has become typical throughout most Democratic administrations in recent history. The national average for gasoline is presently $4.10 per gallon, which is nearly twice what it cost on the day Biden was said to be the winner of the 2020 election.
 

While the Biden White House would love to shift the blame for the increase, it began declining about a year before¬†Putin’s attack on Ukraine. The increase was largely owing to Biden’s anti-energy policies. He promised time and again to end the use of fossil fuels while campaigning for president. As president, he halted pipelines and frozen leases. The U.S., which became energy independent under President Trump, is again dependent on foreign despots as a result of his pro-fossil-fuel policy.

However, the Biden administration has been hyping a “significant” announcement that would help reduce gas costs. Would the president approve more pipelines, speed up the legal process, and/or make it easier and less expensive to drill leases?

Nope, he will allow an E15 blend during the summer.

This is like sticking your finger in a gunshot wound. Sure, you may temporarily slow the bleeding, but you’ll wind up causing more harm than good in the end. E15 is a poor mix of fuel that wreaks havoc on engines and gets less miles per gallon than normal gasoline. This implies that even if the price per gallon is cut by a few cents, a driver will spend more dollars in the long run to go the same distance as they would on regular gasoline. Never mind the additional repair costs some drivers will face after their engine has been damaged by ethanol expansion.

The Biden White House appears to be more interested in being able to claim that gasoline costs have decreased than the actual outcome, which is typical. This White House has a long history of prioritizing flimsy messaging over effective solutions. Nothing else matters as long as the president can mutter incoherently about something in a speech.

Regardless, how many American gas stations do you know that can fill E15? There aren’t any around my neighborhood. When I did some research, I discovered there are 2,300 E15 pumps in the United States. That is compared to more than 150,000 total gas stations.
