“Let them drive electric cars.” That is essentially the line from Pete Buttigieg, claiming more Americans should buy electric vehicles so they would “never have to worry about gas prices again.”
The Transportation Secretary added that families with electric vehicles will see a $12,500 discount in transport costs if the Build Back Better bill passes.
Is Team Biden really so politically tone-deaf that its solution to high gas prices is for Americans to buy expensive electric cars? The average price of a new electric vehicle is $55,676. The average price of a compact car is less than half of that. Even a $12K handout from Uncle Sam would still leave buyers short.
Buttigieg’s also wrong to assert that an electric car will save money long-term. AAA estimates electric vehicle costs average $600 more per year than gas-powered cars’, despite lower fuel prices. And even if many Americans switch to electric cars, they’d have to worry about skyrocketing electricity costs and rolling blackouts that would result from the increased demand.
It’s so typical of Team Biden. They just can’t relate to average folks whose paychecks are going less and less far thanks to their callous policies. And now they’re rushing to inflict Build Back Better on Americans. Don’t expect them to feel the pain when it causes prices to shoot up even more.
Sustainable and renewable energy.
