Pete Buttigieg

The US Transportation Pete Buttigieg has again been touting expensive electric vehicles as a solution for high gas prices

Buttigieg has hailed electric vehicles, which cost an average of around $67 thousand dollars, as the best solution for Americans who are unable to afford the sky high gas prices.

Talking to MSNBC, Buttigieg stated that the best strategy to combat the high prices would be to “make sure Americans have more options through greater fuel efficiency and greater access to vehicles that don’t require fuel.”

Problem solved then.

Buttigieg again touted the ‘transition’:

Buttigieg’s comments come a day after Biden administration energy adviser Amos Hochstein claimed that it is “just factually not true” to claim that gas prices were increasing before the invasion of Ukraine, a blatant lie.
