Remember when Trump cut domestic oil production? Y’all are still feeling the ripples of those domestic reductions.
Price of oil when he tapped the brakes:

Negative $30 bbl

So yeah. Exact same thing as what we are dealing with now.

That’s right it’s not the same, this issue is being felt around the world.. as opposed to the domestic cuts that were only felt in America.

We were exporting oil. So yeah, our supply had an effect on the overall market.

Serious question that isn't meant to belittle: Do you understand what a commodity is and how markets work?

I do. Hence why I can’t understand how you blame 46 for the current global gas issues when he is topping out the domestic supply.

I don't solely blame 46. He shares the blame. As do world events outside of his control.

He made a Day 1 mistake that I've already talked about. The Dems as a hole have put the cart in front of the horse when it comes to clean energy.

Or you’re an old man refusing to accept change.

Many to most car companies have stated they would phase out gas cars by the end of the decade… that’s 7 years away.

Basically just need to hope that there’s nobody ahead of you at the charging station.
good luck if you need repairs or get into an accident as well, most shops are not trained or equipped to repair EV's or hybrids safely

Yeah Hauler @Hauler - stop being an old man refusing to accept change.

Get on board with it or go fuck yourself, racist bigoted Nazi.

There is no way we will be ready for that. The infrastructure alone to facilitate enough charging stations - in cities, suburbs, rural and middle-of-nowhere highway runs - will take longer than that.

Combustible engines will be phased out. But that's an important word - they need to be phased out. Not forced out with an arbitrary deadline date or intentional hardships on the consumer.

I just went through 3 days of no power after a storm. Glad I have a combustible engine.

We are going through a heat wave in the midwest and the news is saying we should expect rolling blackouts.

I guess everyone needs to get a diesel powered generator so they can be sure to charge their electric car in times of need.

I just had the thought to start a business to solve the EV range problem. A tow-behind gas generator that allows you to charge your car as you drive.

Unfortunately - it's already a thing:

In one breath you say Biden is moving too fast.. in the next you say America won’t be able to meet car manufacturers plans and resulting consumer demands.
