One blue city proposed something totally insane amidst Joe Biden’s record gasoline prices

Gasoline prices have skyrocketed since Joe Biden’s inauguration, along with the prices for everything else, including electric cars.

To borrow a phrase from Retired General Russel Honore, too many radical leftists have gotten “stuck on stupid” as their hostility to domestic oil production has gotten us into this mess.

Now, one blue city just proposed something totally insane amidst Joe Biden’s record gasoline prices.

Political leaders in America’s second largest city are now working on policies to stop the development of new fossil fuel infrastructure.

Los Angeles City Councilmember Paul Koretz said, “We are ending oil drilling in Los Angeles. We are moving to all-electric new construction. And we are building toward fossil fuel-free transportation. Our great and influential city, which grew up around the automobile, is the perfect place to figure out how to move off the gas-powered car.”

Of course, what he didn’t say was how, in a time of record inflation where grocery bills cost more with each passing week and electric cars are not affordable for everyday Americans, such a move makes budgetary sense.

Andy Shrader is a staff member in Koretz’s office and he hopes to see the policy move ahead by the end of the year.

Schrader says, “Our daily bad habits are destroying the natural systems we depend on to exist. It’s really up to cities to turn around climate change. If you have lung cancer you stop smoking. If your planet is on fire, you stop throwing gasoline on it.”

Sound logic, but only if you believe the hyperbole that our planet is actually on fire.

Most people who aren’t prone to gullibly falling for every kooky leftist moral panic are just trying to earn a living and raise a family.

D’lynda Fischer is a Petaluma city council member and the Los Angeles proposal is based on a law enacted in her city last year.

Fischer, who as far as I can tell is not a climate expert, says, “We need to do our part to help mitigate and adapt to our changing weather patterns that exist because of all the carbon we put in the atmosphere. Local action is crucial to combating the climate emergency. To tackle this crisis is gonna happen at the local level and it is gonna happen in our communities.”

According to AAA, gas prices in California are at record highs with the average driver paying $6.38 per gallon.

Lawmakers have announced plans to investigate why the state has the highest fuel prices and whether oil companies are taking advantage of consumers.

Maybe supply and demand has something to do with it, in addition to having the highest fuel taxes in the nation.

But in California, while radical proposals to halt development of fuel infrastructure is bad news, the state’s collective opposition to common sense is unfortunately a far bigger problem.
