We’re all struggling to make ends meet, and gas prices are making that extremely difficult for all Americans.
As the prices continue to rise, it’s only a matter of time before truckers aren’t able to afford to transport food across the country.
In the very beginning, Biden promised to end fossil fuels in America.
Promises made, promises kept, one might say…
In 2019, Biden said, “I guarantee you we’re going to end fossil fuel.”

Joe Biden literally ran on this promise, and somehow we’re supposed to believe that 81 million people voted for him?
On multiple occasions, Joe Biden has promised, “I guarantee you, we’re going to end fossil fuels.”
He pledged, “No more drilling on federal lands. No more drilling including offshore. No ability for the oil industry to continue to drill, period, ends.”

Joe Biden is setting records.
And it's intentional.
The Left's goal is to make fossil fuels unaffordable.
They're crippling our economy on purpose. pic.twitter.com/c92QmnQ6mG

Let’s review. Upon taking office, Biden canceled Keystone, halted oil & gas leases, imposed new regulations on energy production, and cut off support for fossil fuels. But @SecGranholm says: no effect on gas prices

Before he took office, Joe Biden promised to "end fossil fuels" and now we're all paying the price for his war on American energy. #RSC put together a list of 81 policies from the Biden admin that have caused prices at the pump to skyrocket.

BREAKING NEWS: Gas prices reach new record high as GOP senators blame Biden for holding production backhttps://t.co/WH1DMxUpSs
— Fox News (@FoxNews) May 19, 2022
GOP senators are calling Biden out as the prices have hit record highs.
Here’s that story from Fox Business:
Twenty Republican senators, led by Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, sent a letter to Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo calling for the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) to quickly issue permits required to bring additional production online from existing offshore federal oil and gas leases.
“While the Biden Administration and Members of Congress fault the domestic oil and gas industry for sitting idle on over 9,000 drilling permits and millions of acres in ‘inactive leases’, NMFS’s permitting delays represent one example of the Administration’s de facto ban on new drilling – impeding domestic oil and gas investment, exploration, and production,” the senators wrote.
The senators attributed the delays to “three administration-made and admitted mistakes” that trace back to mathematical errors in calculating the number of endangered species in the Gulf of Mexico in a 2021 final rule governing offshore oil and gas exploration.
Promises made, promises kept…

Biden promised releasing oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve would keep prices low.
Gas prices just reached a new record high for the 9th day in a row. #BidenGasHike

President Biden is breaking all the wrong records:
👉Nearly 3 million illegal border encounters.
👉Gas surging to record-highs.
👉Fentanyl from the border killing young Americans.

Americans are struggling with record gas prices – up over 50% since Biden took office – but he doesn’t care. Rather than expand domestic energy production, he continues to reduce U.S. production capacity (increasing our reliance on foreign oil) by canceling our oil & gas leases.

On March 31, while announcing plans to release oil from the reserve, Biden promised gas prices would “continue to come down.”
Less than 2 months later, gas prices have surged to $4.59, marking 10 straight days gas prices have set new record highs.https://t.co/D4i0KS7Hd1

Biden is not a good liar:
Biden on March 31: Gas prices will "continue to come down … it will come down and it could come down fairly significantly"
