Biden’s Transport Secretary Says Electric Vehicles Are The Solution To High Gas Prices

Fact checked
Pete Buttigieg

The US Transportation Pete Buttigieg has again been touting expensive electric vehicles as a solution for high gas prices

Buttigieg has hailed electric vehicles, which cost an average of around $67 thousand dollars, as the best solution for Americans who are unable to afford the sky high gas prices.

Talking to MSNBC, Buttigieg stated that the best strategy to combat the high prices would be to “make sure Americans have more options through greater fuel efficiency and greater access to vehicles that don’t require fuel.”

Summit News reports: With the cheapest new EV being over 50 grand, and requiring constant re-charging at home, Buttigieg now acknowledges that most people cannot afford such an expense, so he has a plan.

He’s going to give people who can already afford them a few thousand dollars through ‘tax credits’.

Problem solved then.

Buttigieg again touted the ‘transition’:

Buttigieg’s comments come a day after Biden administration energy adviser Amos Hochstein claimed that it is “just factually not true” to claim that gas prices were increasing before the invasion of Ukraine, a blatant lie.


  1. Rubbish. The solution is to get the bus or train or share rides to reduce demand. But people ate too lazy, don’t really like their neighbours enough to want yo be in their car, can’t be bothered walking to the bus stop etc.

    • If the pope would use the rail or go electrical POPE Mobil than the other 10 billion would have clean air?

  2. Boycotting Russia, Venezuela and Iran carbon energy on the world market is the real reason for high natural gas, gasoline and diesel prices; this creates shortages that sends the price up. These 3 countries have 50% of the world’s fossil fuel reserves.

  3. This Freak has done nothing in his time as Transportation Secretary, if he has it’s invisible and likely harmful..

  4. Not at this point in time as AC cars cost much more to own and operate and gas prices have dropped BUT Clean AIR and HYDRO-thermal power as THE energy as even MIT says is the ONLY way to go

  5. 90 % of all nuclear power run by russia would be lost not possible as they sell all the fuel for nuclear power also and store the spent also

  6. THE Russia/China/industrial&WAR complex provide over 70% of ALL FOSSIL fuel.They also provide 90% of all nuclear power worldwide spent&unspent fuels.They also operate and design& build those 200 plus nuclear powerplants worldwide for most every country in the world reality check TIME!.
