White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre on Thursday confirmed that Joe Biden is moving full steam ahead to end fossil fuels despite soaring gas prices.
“We don’t need to” drill more oil in the US Karine Jean-Pierre said after Peter Doocy asked why the US isn’t drilling for more oil.
Fox News reporter Peter Doocy pressed Jean-Pierre: “The president once said he’s going to end fossil fuel. Is that now off the table?”
“No. We are going to continue to move forward…” Jean-Pierre said.
After waging a war on the fossil fuel industry, the Biden White House is now blaming oil refineries for not doing a “patriotic duty” by increasing oil output.
Joe Biden made it very clear that he was going to shut down the oil industry.
“No more drilling on federal lands. No more drilling, including offshore. No ability for the oil industry to continue to drill. Period.” Biden said in 2020.

Joe Biden followed through with his threats and closed down the Keystone XL Pipeline in January 2021.
The US simply doesn’t have the pipelines to carry more oil.
Now Biden is blaming oil refineries and accusing them of price gouging.
