Here is a lesson in Bidenomics. “Going Green” sounds great to some (like Al Gore, Leonardo DiCaprio and Greta Thunberg), but there are costs to not growing America’s energy supply.
Rising energy costs have helped create the rise in consumer prices and inflation. Not to mention chip shortages for car and trucks. The University of Michigan conditions for vehicles plummeted to 46 (100 baseline) as used vehicles prices sky rocket.
Under Biden’s reign of error, West Texas Crude futures prices have risen 87% (regular gas prices are up 49% even with Biden’s releasing two days of supply from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve.
On the housing front, the University of Michigan buying conditions for houses fell to 72 (baseline of 100) as home prices are roaring at a 18.81% YoY clip.
To paraphrase the comic strip “Gasoline Alley,” “Unca’ Joe, what have your done t’ US?”
