I’m not sure why everyone is so up in arms about the country’s sky-high gas prices. There’s an easy solution to handle the pain at the pump. As President Joe Biden suggests, just buy an electric car!
Biden made the recommendation during a press conference on Thursday.
“Under my plan, which is before the Congress now, we can take advantage of the next generation of electric vehicles.”
The “typical driver” who purchases an electric car “will save about $80 a month,” Biden insisted.

Well, that sounds easy enough. Finally something to spend that spare $57K on.
According to Kelley Blue Book, the average cost of an electric vehicle is $56,437. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that the median personal income for full-time workers in 2021 was $1,010 per week, or $52,520 per year.
In other words, most Americans can finally gain some financial relief at the pump. All they have to do is devote their entire yearly salary, plus an additional $4k, towards the purchase of an electric vehicle. And voila! They’ll then pocket an extra $80 per month!
I wasn’t able to catch the rest of President Biden’s remarks, but I’m fairly confident he offered the following solutions to other present-day problems:
Homeless? Buy a house.
Poor? Get some money.
Biden may advocate avoiding the pump, but he’s still fueling plenty of laughs.

Ain’t nothing and I mean nothing funny about this guy how out of touch can you be not a problem solver for sure how bout that southern border disaster is that funny too. Now I ordered a Tesla because my lease is coming to an end $61k out the door that’s a lot of scratch for folks but I wanted one terrific cars but that doesn’t solve high prices for food home energy and everything else that needs to be trucked in smfh
The break-even point on purchasing an EV relative to the gas savings is longer than most mortgages. And that’s not factoring in the fact that, you know, you still have to pay for the energy to power your car. Also, when your EV battery dies, good luck getting around for the months it takes to get a new one.
This administration is the most out of touch, tone deaf one in many years. Nothing surprises me anymore.
Thanks a lot all 80M fucktards…..
Biden with his 2022 remix of Marie Antoinette’s “Let them eat cake!” He might recall it didn’t turn out so well for her after that, so pump the brakes gramps.
