You may have noticed that the Biden team he was completely absent when it comes to doing anything to address gas prices. Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm laughed when asked if Americans had to deal with rising prices, arguing that there was nothing they could do, that it depended on OPEC.
Also 11 Democratic senators called them out on it, asking them to act. Those senators probably realize that some of them will be in trouble in 2022, if things continue down this path, with the Biden administration doing nothing to help and everything to hurt on the matter.
Once again on Friday, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said she had no action plan to deal with the price hike.

All they seem to have done is prostrate before OPEC and begged them to pump more. Since OPEC oil pumping apparently does not affect climate change, only American drilling and pumping do.
But then, Psaki said something he probably shouldn’t have said and gave the game away.
The high prices should make us want to move even more to clean energy options, Psaki said at a press conference on Friday.

“Our view is that long-term rising gas prices represent an even stronger reason to double our investments and focus on clean energy options, so we don’t rely on fluctuations and OPEC and their willingness to increase supply and meet market demand, “Psaki said.
In other words, if you are suffering now, it is because you really need to learn the lesson that green is the way to go.
So, this is why they act like there is nothing they can do about the problem, that is out of their control, because they really want to use the price increase as a club to promote their green dreams.
This is more than a little disgusting, when we have more than ample sources of gas and oil here, without having to rely on other countries, or on unreliable and expensive green energy sources. If we are willing to make use of those sources. But Biden has been anti-fossil fuel ever since he arrived … cut the permit for the Keystone XL pipeline, abandoning the Willow oil drilling project in Alaska, banning further leases of oil and gas on federal lands. Now, Biden is also considering cutting the Line 5 pipeline that is critical to oil and gas in the Midwest, as well as revoking a permit for a Missouri pipeline.
Psaki then complains that people are angry about the price hike, “It has become a political club. It should not be”.
