Obama Administration Admits It Is NOT Working To Lower Gas PricesTopics: Political News and commentaries
For the Obama administration, it's all about wanting high gas prices in order to push the need for alternative energy:
High gasoline prices will make research into such alternatives more urgent, Chu said.As Americans are facing $5 a gallon gas while Chu and the rest of the Obama administration keep chasing the pipe dream of alternative fuels, the fact is that renewable energy is decades away from replacing fossil fuels.
"But is the overall goal to get our price" of gasoline down, asked Nunnelee.
"No, the overall goal is to decrease our dependency on oil, to build and strengthen our economy," Chu replied. "We think that if you consider all these energy policies, including energy efficiency, we think that we can go a long way to becoming less dependent on oil and [diversifying] our supply and we'll help the American economy and the American consumers."
