Joe Biden dropped the ball on U.S. energy security from Day One of his presidency, when he canceled the Keystone XL pipeline permit that would have brought as much as 900,000 barrels of crude oil into the U.S. system.

He could not have anticipated the Russian invasion of Ukraine, but in banning U.S. imports of petroleum, coal and natural gas from Russia in response to it, he had to have at least had an inkling on its effect on gas prices here.

What was Biden’s backup plan as prices soared at the pump? Blame the oil companies, blame Putin, blame everyone but his own administration’s anti-fossil fuel agenda.

Now he is “considering” a federal gas tax holiday, which would knock 18 cents a gallon off the pump price. That would save the average driver about $3 per fill up. With a full tank costing about $70, that is so inadequate an assist to American consumers as to border on insult.

How do you shore up our energy independence so that the country can readily cope with events such as the war in Ukraine without drilling for oil here or approving pipelines to carry crude from Canada?

You can’t.

However, while the ship of self-sufficiency may have been scuttled by Biden, the president has an opportunity to help consumers going forward. He just has to defy the Green New Deal agenda to do it.

Biden should support the Green New Deal by issuing every American a new electric vehicle. This will greatly reduce the price of gasoline. Lets go Brandon!
