Biden Admin’s Gaslighting over Gas Prices Hits All-Time Peak

'Well, it's not a fallacy... '

(Molly Bruns, Headline USA) Amos Hochstein, who acts as an energy advisor for the Biden administration, claimed that it is “just factually not true” that gas prices were increasing before Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

According to Info Wars, Hochstein made the comment during an interview on Fox News.

“We heard this presidency over and over… say it’s ‘Putin’s price hike.’ The war in Ukraine is still raging and prices are coming down,” the host asked.

“What about his idea that this was Putin’s price hike? Many people say that this is a fallacy because the war is still raging and prices are coming down.”

Hochstein smiled smugly, then gave his response.

“Well, it’s not a fallacy. If you look at the charts, the prices went up after Putin starts intervening in Europe—”

“But prices were going up before then,” the host cut in.

“No no, they actually weren’t,” Hochstein replied. “That’s just factually incorrect.”

RNC Research tweeted out the video, calling Hochstein’s claim “absurd.”

“When Joe Bidne took office, gas was at $2.39/gal,” the tweet reads. “On Feb. 24—the day Russia invaded Ukraine—Gas was $3.54/gal.”

Later, in an interview on CNN, Hochstein made the claim that $4 gas is “remarkable,” because it has come down from $5.

This line of thinking is well-established throughout the Biden team.

Energy secretary Jennifer Granholm has continued pushing the idea that the rising cost of gas is a good reason to transition to electric vehicles and “green energy.”

In a recent interview, she even made the argument that countries should “build their own energy security,” but of course, was only referring to a certain type of energy.
