It is no wonder that his call was not returned when gas prices ballooned out of control, and Biden (and Granholm) learned, belatedly, about supply and demand, so Biden reached out to encourage more production of oil by Saudi Arabia.

And, sadly, as in farming, the energy bureaucrats have regulators and bureaucrats who don’t know the difference between a barrel of oil and a barrel of buckwheat batter. It is as if Bonnie and Clyde were noted as insightful and thorough bank examiners. B &C didn’t help the banks. They helped themselves to the banks. And they sure as hell didn’t care how many lives were ruptured or lost.
