DeSantis: We’d Be In A Better Spot If We Had Done The ‘Opposite Of What Biden Has Done’

On Thursday, Republican Florida Governor Ron DeSantis slammed President Biden for the record hard gas prices, saying that if he could go back in time to the start of the administration, then “we would just do the opposite of what Biden has done, and we’d be in a better spot.”

“So, the question is about gas prices and inflation, you know what I could do, if you could give me a time machine to go back to January 2021, we would just do the opposite of what Biden has done, and we’d be in a better spot,” DeSantis said. “Now. I mean, I really think it’s, he’s got a lot of chutzpah to attack energy producers, when he campaigned saying he was going to shut down energy production in the United States.”

“He said, we’re not going to let them drill, we’re not going to give leases, we’re not going to do any of that,” he continued. “And so then he comes in, he puts really negative policies to try to kneecap American energy production. And of course, that’s been a huge driver as to why we now have gas higher than we have ever seen it before, in my lifetime in this country. And so he has facilitated this. And I think that’s had a huge impact on overall inflation, because everything that’s produced relies on energy. And when those energy costs go up, it has an effect across the board.”

“Obviously, when you’re printing trillions of dollars, the money supply, that has caused it to go up as well,” DeSantis added.  “So, I think there have been a series of policy misjudgments. What I would do is I would say if — and he will not do this, but he should admit he was wrong. And he said, you know what, we need to be energy independent. We need to lead the world in production. We need to get rid of all the roadblocks. We need to make sure people can get permits, want to make sure we can do LNG exports.”

DeSantis’ comments come as gas prices in the United States have reached more than $5 per gallon – more than double the price they were when President Biden entered office.
