Understanding Left-Wing Hubris On Gas Prices

As a result of Biden gutting the US energy sector last year, the invasion of Ukraine left America susceptible to higher gas prices.

The average cost of gas in the United States is currently more than $4.00 per gallon. However, folks are paying more than $5.00 per gallon to put gas into their vehicles in California, certain areas of Florida and other pockets of the nation.

Meanwhile, as Americans are paying an arm and a leg for gas (amid already present inflation), Democrats display a cavalier, carefree attitude.

However, The Federalist provides critical insight into the left’s current disposition regarding high gas prices.

For starters, Democrats’ hubris on gas prices is demonstrated through their ongoing lies about the matter. These lies come from Biden and other leftists blaming Putin for high gas costs. In reality, though, an energy-independent America wouldn’t be paying $4.00 and $5.00 for a gallon of gas.

Likewise, Democrats view gas prices as the perfect storm to push anti-energy, pro-Green New Deal reforms. It is why the White House is declaring that current gas prices indicate the need to lessen America’s dependence on fossil fuels.

It’s also why Democrats, like Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm and Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg, claim that the almighty electric vehicles will solve current problems with gas prices.

Biden and the Democrats’ hubris on gas prices stems from their interests in pushing their political agenda no matter what. The White House doesn’t care about the reality that Americans who can’t afford gas also can’t afford electric vehicles that cost more than vehicles running on fuel.

Just about every American can agree that it’s frustrating to see the nation’s leaders not care about the problems enabled by their poor policies.

For this reason, gradually getting Democrats away from power is the only answer. For over a year, the left has shown the nation how they view it, aim to transform it and lack regard for the American people.

It is something every American must remember when it’s time to vote in November. The midterm elections will decide whether or not Democrats keep control of Congress or lose their majorities to Republicans.

By voting Republicans back into the House and Senate majorities, Americans can send a message that leftists’ failed policies and hubris won’t be tolerated for a second longer.
