Kamala Claims Biden Admin. Has Decreased Energy Prices for Families

'Energy prices generally have gone up. Oil prices, gas prices, everything... '

(Headline USA) Vice President Kamala Harris claimed this week that the Biden administration has reduced energy prices for American families, despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary.

“For working families, we have reduced heating and electricity bills so folks have more money in their pockets to buy things like schools supplies, replace the dishwasher or take a family vacation,” Harris gaslighted during a speech in Maryland.

As the Republican National Committee pointed out, electricity bills are 11.9% more expensive than they were two years ago and gasoline prices are up by 26.7% in the past year alone.

Energy experts also blasted Harris for being “completely out of touch” with reality.

“I’m not aware of anywhere in the United States where electricity prices or heating prices have gone down,” Steve Milloy, a senior legal fellow at the Energy & Environment Legal Institute, told Fox News. “Energy prices generally have gone up. Oil prices, gas prices, everything.”

Milloy pointed out that the Biden administration’s policies are responsible for the price spikes.

“Right from the beginning, Joe Biden put a chill on energy production,” he said. “He just discouraged it. So, there was less investment that went into it.”

President Joe Biden has also tried to downplay soaring energy costs, bragging about decreasing gas prices despite the fact that they are still far more expensive than they were when he first took office.

“The unemployment rate is near a historic low of 3.6%. The private sector jobs are at a record high,” he said last summer. “Gas prices are still way too high, and have fallen 25 days in a row. And this week we saw the second largest single day decrease in gas prices in a decade. We still have a lot of work to do … But I am suggesting we are making significant progress. The program is working.”
