Senator Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) says she doesn’t care about soaring gas prices

The elitists in Washington, D.C., are completely out of touch. However, it’s rare that they show it in such a glaringly obvious way.

Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) claimed that soaring gas prices “didn’t matter” to her because she drives an electric vehicle, Breitbart reported. Meanwhile, average Americans are grappling with prices that have doubled since President Joe Biden took office in 2021.

“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,” Stabenow said in during a budget hearing Tuesday.

“I’m looking forward to the opportunity for us to move to vehicles that aren’t going to be dependent on the whims of the oil companies and the international markets,” she said. However, Stabenow overlooked the exorbitant cost of purchasing such a vehicle that gives her that freedom.

For example, the average cost of an electric vehicle in November 2021 was $56,437. Considering that constituents in her state only make about $59,234 in annual household income, that option is out of reach.

Moreover, this is the same elitist thinking espoused by Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg, who also pushed electric vehicles as the solution to high gas prices in March. This logic ignores not only the economic reality of many working families but also the reason prices are so high.

Though Biden likes to call it the “Putin price hike,” rising energy prices can be directly linked to the president. One of Biden’s first orders of business was to cancel the Keystone XL pipeline, and he has since failed to renew drilling leases on some federal land, causing prices to climb rapidly.

Perhaps it’s true that gas prices don’t matter to the lucky few who can afford electric vehicles. However, electricity is often generated through fossil fuels, and it’s only a matter of time before those prices begin to climb as well.
