Gas prices are skyrocketing, so Biden is considering shutting down another pipeline in Michigan
ยท Nov 8, 2021 ยท NottheBee.com

That Biden guy sure doesn't want the average person to be able to drive anywhere for Thanksgiving, does he?

In case you don't believe that press briefing was real, here's some more details:

Millions of Americans could face even higher energy bills this winter if the Biden administration closes a gas and oil pipeline running through Michigan, a group of Midwest lawmakers have warned.

Line 5 pipeline could be under threat due to the White House exploring the potential impact on fuel prices in the region, according to a recent Politico report, amid a drive to reduce the U.S.'s dependence on fossil fuels.

The line, which delivers Canadian crude oil and natural gas from Alberta to Ontario through Wisconsin, the Great Lakes and Michigan, has operated since 1953 and currently transports about 540,000 barrels per day.

President Joe must really hate America, be completely senile, or both.

In a letter to Biden dated November 4, Ohio General Assembly Bob Latta and 12 other lawmakers urged the president to keep the line running as closing it would only further encourage rising energy bills.

Here's a bit more info on how this could impact you:

Jason Hayes, the director of environmental policy at the Mackinac Center for Public Policy, blasted the Biden administration for its energy policies, telling Fox News that their work on Line 5 is "just one more example of being divorced from reality."

"They're planning to power an industrial nation like the United States on solar panels and wind turbines," Hayes said, while noting that even the solar panels and wind turbines require "oil, natural gas, nuclear and even coal" to be produced.

Hayes presented a dire picture of what shutting Line 5 could mean if people are unable to get natural gas or the electricity it provides as the nation heads into winter.

"I hope it doesn't end like this, but where I see it going is unfortunately the same thing that happened in February in Texas: People freezing in their homes," he said, adding, "Most of the time when it's extremely cold or there's a real bad polar vortex situation, typically it's pretty cloudy and there's not a lot of wind."

Better get some more of those fuel pump stickers handy!
