Slap in the face to those suffering due to the high prices of all the things, not just gas.
Michigan Democrat Sen. Debbie Stabenow just had her “Let them eat cake!” moment:
“I’d have to say just on the issue of gas prices. After waiting for a long time to have enough chips in this country to finally get my electric vehicle, I got it and drove it from Michigan to here this last weekend, and went by every single gas station and it didn’t matter how high it was.”
Michigan Democrat Sen. Debbie Stabenow brags that she passed "every single gas station" in her brand new electric vehicle, "and it didn't matter how high [gas] was."

Maybe Kid Rock will run against Stabenow since she showed her contempt for people who cannot afford electric cars, want an electric car, or who have more pressing financial issues.
Inflation is not just about gas prices. Yes, the national average price for a gallon of gas is $4.94. But we’ve seen prices for goods across the spectrum spike through the roof.
I dare Stabenow to go to the food pantry and brag about her electric car.
The average price of electric cars seems to rise every month. This article in March stated:
Purchase price. The sale price for an EV, on average, was $60,054 in February. That compared to $45,596 on average for all new vehicles, including electric ones, according to data from Edmonds. When compared to comparable gas models, EVs typically cost 10 to 15 percent more, although prices have been climbing steadily over the past couple of years and are expected to continue to rise. This week, for instance, Tesla announced it would raise prices on all its models. The Model 3, Tesla’s least expensive and most popular car, jumped $2,000 to $47,000.
Bailo believes the price gap between EVs and conventional automobiles will narrow, as battery costs drop and lower-priced models, some below $30,000, become available. She predicts that by the middle of the decade, “we’ll have parity” between comparable models.
It’s nice that she can afford an expensive smallish car. Some people have families and need more room. It’s easier to carpool and carry equipment for children whether it’s for sports or other activities.
My 2019 Toyota 4Runner, which I saved up for 10 years so I could pay for it upfront, is the top-of-the-line model. Cost $45,000.DONATE
