On Monday White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki blamed Vladimir Putin for record-high gas prices.
THis was after the national average for gastopped $4 a gallon in the US with places like California paying nearly $6.
Gas prices have skyrocketed since then. On Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday US gas prices hit new all-time American records. The price this morning hit $.32 per gallon.
During Monday’s press conference Psaki lied and told Fox News reporter Peter Doocy that US gas production was at an all-time high under Joe Biden. Psaki and the media have so far defended Joe Biden’s policies in crushing the energy sector in America.
On Thursday morning Jackie Deangelis from FOX Business Network tore into the horrible lies by Jen Psaki, CNN and Jen’s boss Joe Biden.
Deangelis responded to the CNN fake news, “She also went on to say that the reality is US oil production is actually up from 2020. That is unequivocally not true. Go on the EI website and you will see that we hit peak production in March of 2020 right before the pandemic of 13.1 million barrels a day. And quite frankly we could have eclipsed that and kept going. Right now, according to the latest data from EIA, we’re at 11.6 million barrels. That is a one-and-a-half million barrel deficit. OK? So it’s unequivocally not true. Let’s talk about the gas prices. A month ago, we saw 84 cents lower gas prices. But even before that, we saw a 66 cent increase. So, this is not just because what is happening in Ukraine. It’s not just because of Vladimir Putin. It is the administration plus the circumstances that we are under.”
And yet CNN and Psaki continue to gaslight the public on something we all know is true. When you crack down on the energy sector, prices soar.
