BIDEN: “I also want to briefly address one myth about inflated gas prices. They’re not due to environmental measures. My effort to combat climate change is not raising the price of gas or increasing its availability. What it’s doing, it’s increasing the availability of jobs. Jobs building electric cars like the one I drove at the GM Detroit — the GM factory in Detroit last week. For the hundreds of thousands of folks who bought one of those electric cars, they’re going to save $800 to $1,000 in fuel costs this year. And we're going to put those savings within reach of more Americans and create jobs installing solar panels, batteries, electric heat pumps, jobs making those clean power-generating devices.”
