Senator Debbie Stabenow spoke about avoiding high petrol prices in her $56,000 electric vehicle. She’s as stupid as she appears to be. She’s laughing at the peasants, despite the fact that the national average gas price is $4.87 per gallon, with certain states exceeding $5, $6, and $9. Worse worse, the crisis is merely getting started. According to Larry Fink, CEO of BlackRock, this will carry on for years. He’s not the only one who thinks so.
Head-in-a-bubble Senator Debbie Stabenow, D-Mich., startled many Americans when she boasted about being able to escape high pricing since she can afford a high-priced electric vehicle and appears to have the resources to continually recharge it. Her car appears to be a $56,000 model.
Stabenow also expressed her desire for more Americans to “move to vehicles that aren’t going to be dependent on the whims of the oil companies.”
The senator made the remarks during a Senate Finance Committee hearing on Tuesday, which included testimony from US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen. According to Fox News, Yellen was summoned to discuss the Biden administration’s plan to address the high level of inflation and petrol costs that Americans are currently experiencing.
Of course, Yellen’s forecasts have been mostly incorrect for decades.
The Michigan Democrat remarked, adding that she passed “every single gas station” in her completely new electric car, “and it didn’t matter how high gas was.”
We like the idea of electric vehicles, but they aren’t ready for prime time and are out of reach for the typical American. This is especially true since the Democrats’ inflationary policies are impoverishing the middle class. If you make $56,000 a year, you can’t afford a $56,000 electric vehicle.
According to Kelley Blue Book, the average transaction price for an electric vehicle (EV) is $56,437, which is nearly $10,000 more than the overall industry average of $46,329, which includes both gas and EVs. According to CNBC, an electric vehicle costs the same as an entry-level luxury sedan.
While the Biden administration has tried to blame others for rising gas costs, particularly “oil companies,” as Senator Stabenow mentioned, Townhall points out that Biden halted the Keystone XL pipeline via executive order on his first day in office.
Not to mention the cancellation of oil and gas leases, draconian rules, ESG investment mandates, and the war that Biden is promoting.
People are largely concerned about inflation, which is understandable. Electric vehicles aren’t mentioned, and Democrats and RINOs are out of touch.
