If a federal gas tax “holiday” is introduced, then we have no choice but to fall for the ploy. If we drive typical vehicles, we will need to stop for gas at some point.

This whole gas tax idea is terrible.  Don’t get me wrong—I absolutely despise paying taxes just as much as the next person, but it’s not like the government is going to stop collecting them altogether any time soon. It’s just a temporary solution meant to bring some relief to the people of the United States.

The reason that this is such a terrible idea is because it is highly likely that the price of gasoline will increase by an additional $0.18 at some point in the future, and after that, it will be exactly the same as if the “holiday” had never even taken place. Additionally, the government is still in need of monetary support. Where do you think they’ll get it from? They’ll just print more, that much is obvious. All so we can save a measly $2-3 per tank.

I wonder what happens when the government prints a bunch of money…oh yeah, inflation…like what we’re dealing with now. So, Biden, who said that they need more money, is going to print more money which will lead to even higher inflation.

But you can always just get an electric car, right? Well, that seems to be the idea being pushed by the left. The only thing is that our power grid already can’t handle our current consumption and the price of the average electric car is $61,000.

Recently, Fox News reporter Peter Doocy duked it out with Karine Jean-Pierre over the options we have before us.

“A lot of people can’t afford a $61,000 electric car and they are also having a hard time affording gas right now. That sounds like a painful transition,” Doocy said.

“We are in a transition to clean energy…it’s going to create jobs,” KJP said.

“Yeah, but who can afford an electric car? The average price is $61,000! Is that the choice $5 per gallon gas or a $61,000 electric car?” Doocy asked Jean-Pierre.

“That’s apples to oranges. It’s not the same,” she said as she rambled on about Biden’s gimmicky gas tax holiday.

Actually, it is the same. This woman has no idea what she’s talking about.

Doocy: “People can’t afford an electric car… That sounds like a painful transition.” Jean-Pierre: “We are in a transition to clean energy.” Doocy: “Is that the choice $5 per gallon gas or a $60,000 electric car?” Jean-Pierre: “That’s apples to oranges. It’s not the same.”

  • It’s not hard to make any propaganda and disinformation Minister look like a fool. Lying Corrupt Quid Pro KING Joe surrounds himself with unqualified bureaucrats and fools.

    • President Abraham Lincoln stated the following. “Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.”

  • The Mars polar ice caps are melting! Check it out. No cars up there. Climate change without a man made oil company to blame it on. Opps I might be banned seems common sense is illegal now.

  • A bit clunky to say the least but our skill set and experience won the day. Poor ref with no regard to offside and he bottled it on the sin bin, red card all day long if it had been on sky

  • Just who is writing, her stupid speeches? It must be the same people, that logic NEVER REACHES. Their plan is so far, a complete failure for ALL, with no backup, to cushion our fall. We do not possess, the infrastructure, to support their plan, or even restructure. How many battery, charging stations, do there exist, for these situations? They are holding hostage, OUR fossil fuels, and making us pay ransome, to use our own tools. These dictators are TAKING, away our right, to burn fossil fuels, or PAY their delight. Our choice is clear, we HAVE NO CHOICE. PAY THEIR RANSOME, They don’t hear our voice.

  • Peter makes it look really easy to make her look really stupid. She can’t actually think on her feet like Kayleigh McEnany did.

    • Great question. Yes, Biden, Harris and their minions like this totally inept press secretary Jean-Pierre are taking economics classes and learning very well from their teacher. Who is that? None other than Congressmess AOC. Yes, they are getting their vast knowledge of economics from AOC University. Sad indeed!

  • THIS LEZZIE KEEPS SAYING THE “BORDER IS SECURED AND CLOSED”. SHE IS MORE INEPT THEN HER BOSS, THE BYE-DIM(WIT). AND EVEN PRESIDENTS OF OTHER COUNTRYS FEEL THAT THIS INCOMPETENT PRETENDER TO THE ???PRESIDENCY, IS A TOTAL JACKASS, AND JUST LAUGH AT HIM. WHICH IS A GOOD THING

  • Since Lying Corrupt Quid Pro KING Joe is imposing his will upon the American people, intentionally caused by Corrupt Quid Pro, $5.00 a gallon gas or a $65,000 dollar electric car, the citizens are going to take the $5.00 a gallon gas. The citizens are not going to bow down to any KING. Corrupt QUID Pro and the liberal commie Democrats will get their just due in 2022 & 2024.

  • She is dumb as a brick. Matter of fact a brick has more brains and common sense. The Biden admin all talk out of their Ass.

  • Where are the Republican ELECTED LEADERS. MCCONNELL HE NEEDS KICKED OUT.
    MCCARTHY HE NEEDS GONE. HE WON’T EVEN FILE CHARGES AGAINST MAXINE WATERS,SHE DEFINITELY NEEDS KUCKED OFF.
    THEY MCCONNELL, AND MCCARTHY LET THE DEMOCRATS WIN.
    THEY HEARD BIDEN IN JUNE 2020 STATE HE HADE THE BEST TEAM PUT TOGETHER TO COMMIT VOTER FRAUD. THEY ALSO KNEW THE STATE LEGISLATION WERE CHANGIBG VOTER RULES CANNOT DO RHIS.
    SO, WE ARE SICK OF THEIR WHINING THEY HAVE ENOUGH TO IMPEACH BIDEN, AFGHANISTAN, IMMIGRATION, CEASING OIL PRODUCTION, LOSING AMERICANS JOBS, IBFLATION,
    BUT MOST OF ALL HE IS NOT PROTECTING AMERICANS.
    ILLEGALS,DRUG CARTEL, RIOTS, BLM, ANTIFIA,PROUD BOYS.

    ENOUGH FOR YOU RINOS.
    DO YOUR JOB,WE ARE WATCHING. I HOPE THEY GET BETTER REPUBLICAN LEADERS BESIDES MCCONNELL AND MCCARTHY.

  • What good are this administrations crippling environmental policies when the rest of the world isn’t trying to help the environment at all. The USA emissions were a low percentage. For that this administration is destroying our economy for something we can’t control. They are pushing for alternate forms of energy and electric cars when they have not adequately prepared for these transitions. Forget the fact that fossil fuel will be used to power the charging stations and other means of enforcing their impossible policies. Most Americans will not be able to afford the pricy electric cars — only the elites and privileged like Hollywood, politicians and billionaires.

  • The 18cents is nothing. I notice that gas is down a dime. This is temporary and it takes money away from infrastructure. This means highways will not get repaired or built because that money goes back to the States to do the repairs. Robbing Peter to pay Paul. All this could be solved if sleepy Joe had not used his pen to cancel all that Trump had done. Gas was affordable and the economy was doing well. Now look at it. Who can afford to buy gas to go to work? Look what that is going to do to those who use heating oil and propane. Lot of people are going to freeze to death because they can not afford to heat their homes. If people want to buy a electric car, so be it, but we should not be forced into it. The electric grid system can not handle it. Where does the electricity come from? Coal burning power plants or gas powered plants. Rather ironic, they say they want to save the environment and then destroy it by using up the natural resources to complete their goal. Batteries for these cars are extremely expensive and how do you dispose of them? It makes no sense.

  • The press secretary is a totally incompetent fool. Once again, a vacancy was filled based on race, gender, sexual orientation, etc. The woman is so stupid she can’t get out of her own way. Way to go Brandon, just like Cummala.

  • Could it be that her qualifications for this job is that she is a Black Lesbian Female? By the way, we would NOT need a Gas Tax Holiday if Trump was still President! Electric Cars? We are NOT capable of Generating enough Electricity to power these EVs because the Democrats Party and their Useful Idiots called Environmentalists stoped U.S. for building or increasing our Electrical Generating Plants! We have seen the Enemy and it is called The Democrat Party!

    • You are absolutely right about the power grid. Greenies have never changed their deluded talking points for electric cars. Now they are ecstatic that their talking points are spouted by Biden and crew.
      I worked on communication contracts for Air Force Space Command in CA from 1996-2001. Back then, even without fires to blame it on, the electrical grid was failing. There were rolling black outs about 6-7 times a year.
      Usually they lasted about 12-24 hours, but one covered 100 miles on the central coast and lasted lasted four days.
      Through it all, green types were demanding that CA mandate ever increasing numbers of electric vehicles. They ranted against all plans to upgrade the power grid. They have still never upgraded it.
      Yep. Just plug thousands of electric cars in to an already failing power grid. 
Last year CA Gov Newsom ranted that people needed to cut back on electricity usage. He said they need to reduce using AC, watching their big screen TVs, and stop charging their electric cars so much.

  • My argument now and will be from this day forward until the price of gas comes down to where it was before Biden took office. How sustainable to solar and wind? All that energy needs to be stored somewhere. That somewhere are batteries. Where are these batteries to be located? I saw something in a email I received about an employee of what I can only guess was GM. A reporter asked her how that EV was recharged? The electricity to recharge this EV came from the electrical grid of the Detroit area. When confronted with that, I believe that she had no answer for how sustainable the “Green” energy would be to recharge these EV’s. All these people that are pushing “Green” energy and that includes the puppet in the White House have not thought about what they are pushing on the American people.

  • She is merely another of a long line of former plantation field hands hired for their color and incompetence.

  • One cannot argue with libtard idiots. They are incapable of understanding much of anything. Liberalism is an untreatable mental disease.
    End of Story.

  • I agree that Jean-Pierre does not seem like a likely Mensa candidate, but I do also remember how the Left loved it when Jim Acosta gave Trump’s press secretaries.

  • Folks, the dems are not inept. This is their plan to destroy the USA into a one world government and enrich themselves. They give a hoot about you and completely forget that China will destroy their plans and take over their hoped for control. So I correct myself, they are inept.
