Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm said the Defense Production Act is a “tool” in the Biden administration’s belt to address high gas prices. While speaking to reporters Wednesday, she said the administration has not drawn any lines in the sand at the moment in terms of invoking the defense law or other emergency measures.
A representative of the Biden administration gave an update on its so-called Green Agenda. Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm (D) claimed high gas prices will justify a transition into supposedly clean energy. On Thursday, Granholm spoke at the Hillsborough River dam in Tampa to promote hydroelectric energy. During her speech, the former Michigan Governor laid out the Biden administration’s plan to replace fossil fuel.
Gas prices hit another record high under the Biden administration. According to AAA, the national average price per gallon of gas has risen to $4 and 76 cents.
