President Biden was asked recently what would happen to gas prices in the immediate future, and his answer was that people would be paying more and ‚ÄúRussia is responsible‚ÄĚ for that.
However, a 2019 tweet from now White House chief of staff Ron Klain shows that Team Biden has had their eyes on a ‚Äúclean energy transformation‚ÄĚ for a long time, and Russia‚Äôs invasion of Ukraine is merely providing the latest excuse:

‚ÄúNever let a crisis go to waste,‚ÄĚ and the Biden White House is now doing just that.

Biden and many Dems have now settled on a ‚ÄúPutin‚Äôs price increase‚ÄĚ narrative even though it‚Äôs been clear for a long time that they‚Äôve sought to get rid of fossil fuels to implement their ‚Äúgreen‚ÄĚ agenda.

No plan, just give us a bunch of money and we‚Äôll figure it out later

The Biden administration‚Äôs push is indeed about ‚Äúgreen,‚ÄĚ which is the color of money.
No, it's not our policies that are driving fuel costs up, not at all.
*Long eye roll*

The Biden administration, quite openly saying they'll take drastic action to limit the United States' ability to remain energy independent.

The executive branch‚Äôs fleet of jets has been converted to all-electric, right?
Also, here‚Äôs a reminder that on the presidential campaign trail Biden promised to get rid of fossil fuel:
Biden said nothing about Putin there.
