The Cause of Extreme Inflation

I’m stepping into the race for the United States Senate with a mission: to roll back gas prices to where they were just two years ago. The question on everyone’s mind is, how do we achieve this? The strategy is straightforward but requires immediate action. Firstly, we halt President Biden’s aggressive war on fossil fuels. This policy has not only spiked our gas prices but also weakened our energy independence. It’s essential that we pivot back to a more balanced approach to energy production—one that includes fossil fuels as a key component of our overall strategy. We reopen Anwr (Arctic National Wildlife Refuge), a stance I proudly supported with my vote for Anwr drilling back in 2005. This move alone can significantly increase our domestic oil production, decreasing our reliance on unstable foreign oil markets and helping to stabilize prices at the pump. Additionally, we must advocate for the reinstatement of the Keystone XL Pipeline.

This project, canceled under the current administration, was set to deliver 900,000 barrels of oil per day to the U.S. market. Its completion is critical for bolstering our energy reserves and pushing down gas prices. By reversing President Biden’s current stance on fossil fuels, reopening strategic projects like Anwr and the Keystone Pipeline, we can bring about a substantial decrease in gas prices. It’s time to end the unsustainable war on fossil fuels and adopt a pragmatic approach that ensures energy affordability, security, and independence for America.
