It looks as if Joe Biden has his eyes on shutting down another pipeline and creating even higher fuel prices.
Per a new report from Politico (subscription required): “The Biden administration is gathering data on whether shutting down the Line 5 oil pipeline in Michigan would lead to fuel price shocks in the region, according to people familiar with the administration effort.”
Back in June, Biden refused to reverse his cancellation of the Keystone XL crude oil pipeline permit, despite attempts from Canadian officials to convince him otherwise. Biden nixed that particular pipeline the very day he took office.
The Michigan Chemistry Council vehemently opposes Biden’s reported pipeline plan.
“Shutting down Line 5 is a terrible idea with disastrous consequences for Michigan and our neighbors,” it wrote in response to the Politico report. “Michigan Public Service Commission’s new Winter Energy Appraisal shows that propane supplies are tighter and prices are up.
“There is no real plan in place to ensure a reliable, resilient energy supply for Michigan as we enter the winter. Pipelines remain the safest, most reliable, and most affordable way to transport the energy we need.”
Biden, however, doesn’t appear to value those things.
