I ask this because it is a real problem.
I can’t speak for the rest of the world, but the American Economy runs on one thing and one thing only Gasoline. It is the basis of American life and Society. A Family of 4 the average family, owns two cars, while 35 percent of American households own three cars or more. Some 276 million vehicles were registered here in 2019. The figures include passenger cars, motorcycles, trucks, buses, and other vehicles. The number of light trucks sold in the U.S. stood at 12 million units in 2019. Motorists age 16 years and older drive, on average, 29.2 miles per day or 10,658 miles per year. That’s an average of 535 Gallons a year per vehicle, at 20mpg.
At the beginning of the Biden term that Fuel cost was $1000 for the year times the number of vehicles in the home. It is now at a cost of $2000 for the year times the number of vehicles in the home, and the cost is continuing to rise without an end in site.
We do not drive like this just to drive. You can not live in the majority of the U.S. and WORK without being able to drive. According to ABC News, the average American drives 16 miles to work each way, with a daily commute totaling nearly an hour round trip. Only very few of our cities have 24hr Public Transit. New York City, Chicago and Philly, are the only American cities with 24 hour light rail service, the subway and EL, in addition to buses. In Chicago you could be shot, in NYC you could be pushed in front of the Subway, and in Philly you can be raped while people watch.
Americans for the most part unless you live in one of those 3 cities you have no choice, you drive or you get driven by a friend or family member period.
The Build Back Better Bill that the Democrats are passing is a direct assault on the American family and especially the worker. As Jen Psaki says EVERY DAY President Biden wants to FUNDEMENTALLY CHANGE THE AMERICAN ECONOMY. His plan to achieve this change is through the destruction of the use of Gasoline.
Several States have already passed Laws that NO NEW Gas Powered Vehicles will be sold after 2030 which is the exact same time period that Climate Czar John Kerry says we have left to end the use of Gasoline and “Save the Planet”. California has already banned Lawnmowers and Leaf blowers.
The BBB Bill is designed to FORCE you to seek alternate sources of Fuel. It is designed to raise the cost of Fuel to a prohibitive price for general use, while at the same time spending Billions of Dollars installing Electric Charging Stations where Gas Stations now exist to accommodate the Battery powered Car/Truck/Tractor you are being forced to buy.
The MSM is purposefully not informing the American Public of what this Bill will do. I will continue to repeat this story even if I’m a lone voice in the wilderness.
As these New Laws and Regulations take place the outrage will build to a catastrophic level. Sooner or later Joe SixPack who pays no attention to anything except his Job and Local Sports is going to notice that it costs him more to get to work than he earns. Unless he really is just that stupid…..
