Our current oil shortage did not arise from a foreign war or tsunami, but from a deliberate policy to curtail oil production to force a more rapid transition to battery-powered transportation.
Try to follow the Joe Biden energy plan of frantically trying to get his hands on more of something that his own party despises.
During the Democratic primaries, Biden ran on the premise that he would end all fossil fuels during his tenure.

The American people shrugged at such utopianism since they often were filling up their cars for less than $50.
Biden’s video clips from the primary campaign now seem surreal, as he tried to out-green Bernie Sanders in boasting about what has now become his own self-created energy disaster.

Those were certainly campaign boasts that he has followed up on.
His environmental czar John Kerry has just insulted Americans by lecturing them that there is no need to pump more gas and oil to reduce gas prices that are well over $6 a gallon in many of the Western states.
