FIGURES: Biden’s Electric Vehicle Agenda Is Being Led By Electric Car Investors And Insiders

President Biden’s Secretary of Energy, Jennifer Granholm, is the latest Democrat to suggest the solution to high gas prices is to buy an electric vehicle, which costs at least $60,000. 

In a clip tweeted by the Republican National Committee Tuesday, Granholm made a case for going electric to combat surging gas prices. 

Democrats created the crisis to then bring in their plan as a solution.

It’s the same scenario over and over again.

“If you filled up your EV [electric vehicle] and you filled up your gas tank with gasoline, you would save $60 per fill-up by going electric rather than using gasoline… it’s a very compelling case, but again, we want to bring down the price at the point of purchase,” Granholm said. 

The comments by Granholm follow the record-setting surge in gas prices, which have now pushed over $5 per gallon. 

According to Fox News, Granholm made similar points in a White House press briefing in May 2021.

“If you drive an electric car, this would not be affecting you,” she said during the briefing. 

Granholm is worth roughly $8 million, according to Forbes. She recently served as the director of an electric car company called Proterra.

In May, she exercised stock options in the company, pocketing about $1.6 million from the transaction, according to an energy department spokesperson.

According to Kelley Blue Book, the average cost of an electric vehicle is $56,437, which is approximately $10,000 higher than the industry average, including electric and gas cars.
