VIDEO Energy Secretary On Rising Gas Prices: “That Is Hilarious”
Energy In Depth is out with a new video featuring Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm laughing when asked by Bloomberg about the department’s solution is for rising gasoline prices.
The video starts with news coverage around the country on gasoline prices reaching a seven year high before Bloomberg’s Tom Keene asks, “What is the Granholm plan to increase oil production in America?”
Granholm then responds:
“[Laughs]. Oh my gosh. That is hilarious. Would that I have a magic wand.”
Granholm might be laughing at the idea that a stronger supply of oil lowers prices at the pump, but at the same time, the Biden administration has been begging OPEC+ to ramp up production.
Meanwhile, last month, Granholm claimed that “all tools [are] on the table,” to address raising gas prices, and said:
“Indeed, Granholm pointed the finger again at the OPEC+ group of oil-producing nations that ignored calls this week from the U.S. to increase output beyond what it already has planned. ‘Everybody was hoping that there would be additional supply made available so that prices would not be jacked up,’ Granholm said.” (emphasis added)
Unfortunately, Granholm chooses to laugh at the question of increasing oil production instead of acknowledging the Biden administration has chosen to undermine the American energy industry.
