If a federal gas tax "holiday" is introduced, then we have no choice but to fall for the ploy. If we drive typical vehicles, we will need to stop for gas at some point.
This whole gas tax idea is terrible. Don't get me wrong—I absolutely despise paying taxes just as much as the next person, but it's not like the government is going to stop collecting them altogether any time soon. It's just a temporary solution meant to bring some relief to the people of the United States.
The reason that this is such a terrible idea is because it is highly likely that the price of gasoline will increase by an additional $0.18 at some point in the future, and after that, it will be exactly the same as if the "holiday" had never even taken place. Additionally, the government is still in need of monetary support. Where do you think they'll get it from? They'll just print more, that much is obvious. All so we can save a measly $2-3 per tank.
I wonder what happens when the government prints a bunch of money...oh yeah, inflation...like what we're dealing with now. So, Biden, who said that they need more money, is going to print more money which will lead to even higher inflation.
But you can always just get an electric car, right? Well, that seems to be the idea being pushed by the left. The only thing is that our power grid already can't handle our current consumption and the price of the average electric car is $61,000.
Recently, Fox News reporter Peter Doocy duked it out with Karine Jean-Pierre over the options we have before us.
“A lot of people can’t afford a $61,000 electric car and they are also having a hard time affording gas right now. That sounds like a painful transition,” Doocy said.
“We are in a transition to clean energy…it’s going to create jobs,” KJP said.
“Yeah, but who can afford an electric car? The average price is $61,000! Is that the choice $5 per gallon gas or a $61,000 electric car?” Doocy asked Jean-Pierre.
“That’s apples to oranges. It’s not the same,” she said as she rambled on about Biden’s gimmicky gas tax holiday.
Actually, it is the same. This woman has no idea what she's talking about.
