Here’s Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg admitting out loud what the entire Biden administration has been suggesting from the start. We’re in a “transition” period from fossil fuels to renewables, and high gas prices are part of that transition. As with others in the administration, Buttigieg’s solution to those struggling to afford gas is to buy an electric vehicle. And now he’s admitted the equation is the more pain people feel at the pump, the more benefit there is to those “who can access electric vehicles.” Not buy, access.

This is their best replacement for Joe Biden if he decides not to run again in 2024.

It’s true … Biden made it very clear on the campaign trail that he would eliminate fossil fuels.
