ABC panelist gives high gas price excuse: ‘We are used to $ 2 gas’

On sunday This weekThe most liberal “Powerhouse Roundtable” failed to address the fact that an ABC / IPSOS poll found that more than 60 percent of Americans disapprove of President Biden’s handling of gas prices.

“Our new poll, an interesting number. First, it has shown overwhelming support for a ban on Russian oil, with 77 percent supporting it, even if it means voting in question, even if it means higher gas prices at home, “Phil-in-host John Carl reported at the time of breaking the report. Poll results.

“But look at this other question we asked, which is, to manage the price of Biden gas, do you approve? 70 percent denial, so, in other words, ban Russian oil even if it means higher gas prices, we are going to blame Biden. Carl did not understand how the public could simultaneously support a ban on Russian oil knowing that it would lead to higher prices at the pump, as well as denying Biden’s failure to take any action to reduce prices.

Carl looked at former Democratic North Dakota senator and Heidi Hatecamp, a contributor to ABC News, as he mourned the loss. “You always blame the party in power,” Hatecamp responded harshly.

Continuing his cries for the Americans to blame Biden for the high gas prices, Hatecamp thought the Biden administration was “not aggressive enough” to deny the potential viability of the Keystone XL pipeline: Donald Trump Why not? Because it was not profitable to build that pipeline at those price points. “

He then blamed former President Trump for the inflation, claiming that “it was the Trump administration that spent extra and increased inflation so if prices and housing and gas inflation are due to deficit spending, it’s Trump’s fault.”

Carl then shows a chart of how much gas prices have risen in the last month: “But look at this chart of gas prices from February. If you look – it’s a staggering increase. “The price of gas has been halted by Heitcamp Carl’s claim to be” artificially low, “and the price consumers are now paying is not the highest price Americans have to pay:

Of ABC This week
3/13/2022
9:42:43 a.m.

John Carl: Our new poll, interesting numbers. First, it has shown overwhelming support for a ban on Russian oil, with 77 percent supporting it, even if it means poll questions, even if it means higher gas prices at home. But look at this other question we asked, which is, biden gas price management, do you approve? 70 percent denial, so, in other words, ban Russian oil Although it means higher gas prices, we are going to blame Biden.

Heidi Highcamp: You always blame the party in power. And, you know, the administration wasn’t aggressive enough in pushing back the Red Herrings, the Red Herrings, in my opinion, because you didn’t build the Keystone XL pipeline, and I’m reminding them that one of Donald Trump’s first works. Permit was issued and the pipeline was not built in four years? Why not? Because it was not profitable to build that pipeline at those price points. Do they argue that it is due to inflation? Fugitive inflation. Who has increased inflation? We saw the CBO number this week. It was the Trump administration that spent extra and increased inflation so if prices and housing and gas inflation are due to deficit spending then it was Trump’s fault and so the administration was not aggressive enough to explain what was really going on.

Carl: Even if you look at the numbers, inflation really started to rise when Biden came to the White House. Now obviously.

HITCAMP: That makes sense to me, doesn’t it?

Carl: But look at this chart of gas prices from February. If you look – it’s a dazzling increase, you know, it doesn’t match.

HighCamp: What I can say is that this is an artificially low price from which you are starting and when you adjust the inflation, it is not our highest price in the last 20 years. Indeed, George Herbert Walker Bush Under the George W. Bush administration we had gas prices, inflation adjusted above $ 5. But we are shocked because we have become accustomed to $ 2 gas. And that’s the problem!

(…)

George Will: But stop digging when you’re in the hole. That’s the rule of the hole. 7.9 percent inflation. Congress spent another 1.5 trillion trench in the announced week. Since the government announced in the first five months of this fiscal year that inflation has cut real wages for Americans in nine of the 12 months, we are now adding a deficit in these first five months of the year to $ 3 billion a year and debt services now cost $ 1.2 million per minute. That’s $ 20,000 per second. If you want to do arithmetic, stop, that is, stop adding fuel to the fire.
