(LibertySons.org) – An array of factors, including Russia’s actions in Ukraine, have led to skyrocketing gas prices in the United States. While President Joe Biden doesn’t seem to have any answers for how to bring down the costs, he does have another solution. He suggests Americans should toss out gas-powered vehicles and convert to all-electric ones with an average price tag of about $56,000 – an expense not many can afford.
In his March 8 remarks announcing the ban on Russian oil imports, the president took a moment to tout his lofty clean energy ideas. He said a switch to electric power would make the country less reliant on tyrants like Russia and more energy independent.
Americans are struggling to afford a tank of gas, but the Biden administration thinks the solution is to buy a $50,000 to $100,000 electric vehicle.

The suggestion shows how out of touch the White House is with the average American. While Biden has been pushing his green energy agenda, the typical citizen has struggled financially. Most people can’t afford to buy new cars, much less electric ones, but the president seems to ignore that fact.
While the upfront cost for an electric car is outrageous, maintenance is what will really drain a bank account. A new battery could run up to $20,000, and only lasts 10 to 20 years. A large portion of America simply cannot just buy electric as the president suggests, so this is not a viable solution.
