As gas prices continue to surge, Biden keeps insisting that he is doing all he can to reduce gas prices. Really? Do any of his comments listed below suggest he wants to do anything but destroy the oil and gas industry?
While running for president, Biden promised, “we would work [fossil fuels] out. We would make sure it’s eliminated.”
Later in the Democratic primaries: “I’ve argued against any more oil drilling or gas drilling on federal lands … we should, in fact, be looking at what exists now… I would not allow any more.”
In March 2020, Biden promised, “No more drilling on federal lands. No more drilling, including offshore. No ability for the oil industry to continue to drill, period.”
Has the gas or Russia crisis changed his strategy?
Just a few weeks ago, Biden said, “we have to get off our dependency on fossil fuels.”
And: “We can’t keep the combustible engine the way it has been.”
And: “We are moving in the direction that we don’t need” fossil fuels for cars.
But other than that he supports fossil fuels.
