Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg and the rest of the Biden administration can't seem to understand that Americans can't or don't want to rush out and drop $65,000 on an electric vehicle. With the state of the current economy, there just isn't that much cash to be thrown around for many Americans. How could they possibly not understand that?
President Biden took an ill-fated trip to Saudi Arabia to negotiate lower gas prices and came up empty. To compound the matter, oil prices spiked on Monday.
Mayor Pete appeared on CNBC’s Squawk Box to discuss gas prices.
Buttigieg said, “I’m still astonished that some folks seem to really struggle to let go” of their gas-powered vehicles in favor of electric vehicles.
That's not the first time he's done this. He bragged about high gas prices forcing people to switch to electric vehicles during an appearance on REAL 92.3’s show Big Boy TV.
“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,” Buttigieg said.
“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 administration is a disaster. How could an entire administration be so out of touch?
