As Gas Prices Rise, Biden Shuts Down Alaska Drilling

When the price of lumber started skyrocketing, pulling the price of housing after it, Biden responded by doubling the tariff on Canadian lumber, diverting this precious product to our ChiCom adversaries. As an unsurprising result of his energy policy, gasoline prices are also climbing steeply. This inflates the price of everything. How would you expect Biden to respond? That’s right: by further restricting our oil supply:

The Biden administration on Tuesday suspended oil and gas leases in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge…

The move by the Interior Department, which could spark a major legal battle, dims the prospect of oil drilling in a pristine and politically charged expanse of Alaskan wilderness…

The “pristine wilderness” consists largely of frozen tundra — i.e., wasteland. It is no good for anything but oil drilling. Once in a while, a man-eating polar bear lumbers across it.

Interior Secretary Deb Haaland, a leftist radical who supports the insane Green New Deal and whose qualification for office is that she is an Indian, has called a halt to all drilling activity so that leftist bureaucrats can conduct “a new, comprehensive analysis of the potential environmental impacts of the oil and gas program.” If they find that so much as a mosquito is inconvenienced, the oil will lie wasted in the ground as our standard of living declines.

As noted at Daily Wire,

The news comes as gas prices under the Biden administration have risen every month that he has been in office and are currently more than $.60 per gallon higher than in January.

Biden made his hostility to the energy industry obvious from the beginning by maliciously shutting down the Keystone XL pipeline. But evidently thanks to a generous lobbyist, Biden is okay with Russia building the Nord Stream 2 pipeline to make Germany dependent on it for the natural gas that it can no longer buy from us because he won’t let us produce it.
