Ever since Biden took office, gas prices have been steadily rising, but now amid the Ukraine/Russia conflict, rates are jumping at an extremely fast rate.
Previously, the Biden administration responded to complaints about gas prices by telling Americans to buy electric cars … it was a stupid “solution” then, and they’re still beating that drum now, as the average gas price climbs to around 5 bucks a gallon.
Secretary of Transportation Peter Buttigieg, recently suggested during a press event that Americans just need to get a $60,000 electric car so they can stop worrying about gas prices.
Well, one Twitter user by the name of Jordan Rachel just blew a huge hole in Pete’s electric car scheme.
She asked one perfect question, and I bet Pete wouldn’t have a good answer for it.
Here’s what Jordan is wondering:
How are Americans going to afford a $60k car when they’re struggling to pay $5 a gallon for gas?
Yeah, Pete, how exactly would that work out?
If they can’t afford $5 a gallon for gas how in the hell do you think they are going to afford a $60,000 electric car? https://t.co/kI5QeLCHkk

How ungodly out of touch are these people?
These political elites are living in a bubble, and have zero clue how the rest of us live our lives.
Not only are they clueless, but they also don’t care.
Especially when you consider that for most Americans the median yearly income is $56,000, as Illinois congresswoman Mary Miller points out.
How are they supposed to afford a 50-60K car?
The elites don’t care.
The average cost of an electric car is $55,000.
The median household income in my district is $56,000.
My constituents are struggling with record high gas prices and the Biden admin’s solution for them is to buy a car they can’t afford. https://t.co/zKFD3kfhub

What would really help Americans right now is the Keystone Pipeline, which was one of the first things Biden destroyed his first day in office.
He could easily bring it back, but it’s doubtful that would ever happen.
Biden’s all about pushing the Climate Change Cult.
The last thing Joe seems concerned about is middle-America’s wellbeing.
