In an interview Thursday on REAL 92.3’s Big Boy TV, Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg boasted about how high gas prices are forcing Americans to shift toward owning electric vehicles.
Buttigieg said, “We’re for cutting the cost of electric vehicles because when you have an electric vehicle, then you’re also going to be able to save on gas, but you got to be able to afford it in the first place. Right now, we’re actually starting to see on some models the costs come to where even if your car payment’s a little higher, your gas payment will be a little lower, and you come out ahead, but the prices still need to come down for most Americans to be able to get an EV.”
This is a common theme for the diversity hire Buttigieg and his comrades in the Biden administration, who promote outrageously expensive electric vehicles as part of the Left’s push to bankrupt the fossil-fuels industry.
Other members of the administration have promoted switching to electric vehicles in the wake of skyrocketing gas prices.Last month, Biden’s Energy Secretary, Jennifer Granholm, claimed that American gas prices are “unsustainable,” but noted that the high costs are “accelerating our progress toward clean energy.”
In addition to the cost of electric vehicles, the Green Reset enthusiasts have no answer to concerns that the widespread use of such vehicles, requiring cars to line up for hours at a tiny number of charging stations, will crash the country’s power grid.
