U.S. Energy Secretary Cackles at Idea of Increasing Domestic Oil Production, Says It’s ‘Hilarious’ to Think Biden Could Reduce Gas Prices

Biden energy secretary Jennifer Granholm laughed audibly at the notion of increasing domestic oil production during a recent Bloomberg interview, claiming it is “hilarious” to suggest that the administration could do anything to lower prices.

“In Sturgis, Michigan, it is $2.80 a  gallon. I guess that’s better than in California. What is the Granholm plan to increase oil production in America?” Bloomberg host Tom Keene asked the former Michigan governor.

“That is hilarious. Would that I had the magic wand on this. As you know, of course, oil is a global market. It is controlled by a cartel. That cartel is called OPEC. And they made a decision yesterday that they were not going to increase beyond what they were already planning,” Granholm responded.

She continued to say, “So, you know, the interesting thing is, you know, the Department of Energy has an energy information agency. And that agency does the forecasting of what oil and gas prices are going to be. As of right now, the forecast for the beginning of December is that, on average, gas prices,  gasoline prices will be about $3.05 at the beginning of December.”

“They will do an adjustment forecast in the next week, or so, so we’ll see if that holds. But clearly, the Biden administration is very concerned about the price at the pump and certainly the price in people’s wallets for natural gas as well for this winter including, I would say, propane and heating oil, particularly, in the Northeast,” Granholm added.

Big League Politics has reported on how higher gas prices and inflation in general are the intended result of Biden administration policy:

Fox News host Tucker Carlson exposed the U.S. central bank, the Federal Reserve, during an episode of his eponymous primetime show on Tuesday night.

Carlson said that although the Federal Reserve may have been initiated under a noble pretense, they have since strayed from their mandate and become hostile toward the dollar they are supposed to be protecting.

“It’s the classic story of the fireman turned arsonist, or for that matter, the COVID czar who helped to create COVID. Irony of ironies, it seems like we read a lot of those lately,” Carlson said…

He used many examples to show how inflation is skyrocketing, including rising food costs and the soaring cost of cars and homes. Carlson said that Biden’s insane government spending is making the Federal Reserve’s policies hurt Americans even moreso, but the elites don’t seem to care very much…

Carlson emphasized that there are people who are directly responsible for these policies, and they should be held accountable for their deliberate destruction of the U.S. economy.

“What he didn’t say was that this is not an act of God. This isn’t a hurricane. It’s not an earthquake. It’s not something we can’t control. This is the result of decades of policy that have enriched a few and impoverished the many. When will the reckoning be for that? And what are the effects for you going forward?” he said to conclude his segment.”

Granholm is laughing in the faces of the American public and insulting their intelligence as they are destroyed by the regime’s policies. This is part and parcel of an illegitimate Biden White House that is at war with the people.
