Biden on Oil: ‘No More Drilling. There is No More Drilling.’

Biden on Oil: ‘No More Drilling. There is No More Drilling.’

The current average gas price is $3.804. A year ago? $3.421.

President Joe Biden confirmed his disdain for oil drilling right before the midterms:

BIDEN: “No more drilling. There is no more drilling. I haven’t affirmed any new drilling. No… That was before I was president. We’re trying to work on that, get that done. Thank you.”

The national average gas price went up to $3.804 for regular gas (this chart is updated daily):

Current Avg. $3.804
Yesterday Avg. $3.800
Week Ago Avg. $3.762
Month Ago Avg. $3.891
Year Ago Avg. $3.421

The prices go up and down. wrote on October 31 about “gas prices drifting down.”

On November 3? “National Average Increases as Pump Prices Remain Volatile.” California’s prices decreased, which surprised me:

Since last Thursday, these 10 states have seen the largest changes in their averages: Rhode Island (+26 cents), Maine (+24 cents), Connecticut (+22 cents), New Hampshire (+21 cents), New Jersey (+20 cents), Massachusetts (+19 cents), Ohio (+18 cents), Alaska (−18 cents), Delaware (+17 cents) and California (−16 cents).

Clean up on aisle five coming from the WH communications team and the sycophants in the media in 3, 2, 1……

Somebody gave China Joe the wrong script maybe?

This is the actual policy of the Democrat party.
They can lie and spin and let some leases while hiding the nine more steps downstream that keep the wells from being drilled. They haven’t allowed a new refinery in years maybe decades.
Voting for Democrats is voting for poverty.

    Inexpensive, reliable fossil fuels have lifted nearly the entire world out of poverty. Unfortunately, we were all more easily controlled when we were so poor that we had less expendable income and less leisure time, and when our focus was on making the rent and feeding the kids. To the Dems, those were the “good ole days”, and they want to bring them back.

He said the quiet part out loud.

He was just having flashbacks to his lobotomy.

The “Let them eat cake” President.

He just got through saying many coal-fired power plants would be closing and now he says, “no more drilling”. Hasn’t he seen or been told how that is working out for Europe, especially Germany. Burning wood and theft of it from forests has increased significantly over there.

(Of course, with the Secret Service, he also does not have to worry about the crime the Dems no-bail laws and progressive DAs are plaguing New Yorkers and elsewhere with.)

    I’m sure the White House has enough unicorn poop stocked for themselves to last at least most of this heating season.

Biden making it starkly important why voting matters! We need that red wave tomorrow and then retake the White House in 2024. America needs to be returned to sensible energy policy or things make get real ugly in the next couple of years.

Off topic: anybody else amused by the fact that we may have a blood moon on election night?

They were cheering

No more drilling! We don’t need no stinking oil. Everybody should have an electric car by next Tuesday.

OK Biden… build the new presidential “Beast” to only run on battery power, conventional battery power and not a NASA fuel cell. Turn in present Air Force Ones for battery powered aircraft. Take the train otherwise (pending end of oil). (Pelosi should use the train for here weekend trips to San Fran and back…. not government jets. Walk the walk Joe… if you can without stumbling. Since you are just a puppet… that should be easy.

    “Who cares about walk the walk? All that my democrat voters care about is talk the talk, ain’t that right, Karine?”

    “Let me be clear, the President was not talking about walking, he was talking about talking.”

    Name one totalitarian or communist regime in history in which the “ruling class” had to follow the same rules as the peasantry.

Maybe he was begging his dentist.

    I doubt it. He takes his choppers out at night and Dr Jill puts them in a glass of water on a high shelf. She used to put them by the the night stand, but he drank those.

OK, what have they done with Joe Biden? Three weeks ago, the real Joe Biden said he wasn’t discouraging, but rather encouraging, more drilling and was demanding more refinery capacity. Now this imposter is saying the opposite!

We;re finding out what happens when your Presidential Administration is all Kinsley Gaffes. I don’t recall signing up for that.

A forward-looking risk sustained through administrative changes. Babies, too, that will be planned to mitigate the burden of progressive prices and availability and normalize social progress. Clever.

Wear a red shirt when you vote tomorrow.

He’s clearly lying to his own party voters because drilling could never cease that quickly without HUGE economic growing pains.

He’s clearly lying to his opposition because he has said the opposite just recently, and his WH has walked back his statements.

The options are A. Inept B. Stupid.

The answer is C.

Biden’s been in politics his entire adult life, and here he is within a week before the midterm elections just openly stating that there will be no more coal and no more oil.

His handlers must be absolutely losing it back stage. nationwide, D’s in tight races must be furious.

I’m not sure.

You don’t let the mark figure out the game until after you’ve won and cashed out. Does the ruling cabal think they’ve won it all already, or is President Rest Home screwing up n forgetting when he’s talking to the suckers?
