States throughout the southeast are dealing with a massive gas crisis as gas stations have run out of fuel and others have massive lines.
This has been going on for days and the clueless Biden administration still can’t say when it will end.
Is this what ‘build back better’ means?
Breitbart News reports:
Day Five: Team Biden Can’t Say When Gasoline Crisis Will End
The White House struggled Wednesday to respond to the gas shortage on the East Coast of the United States, five days after the Colonial pipeline was shut down by a ransomware cyberattack.
President Joe Biden’s cabinet officials hesitated when asked when the shortage would end, punting timeline questions to Colonial, the private company in charge of the pipeline.
“I’ll defer to announcements from the company on their process,” Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg said at the White House daily press briefing.
Buttigieg declined to confirm assertions from Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm Tuesday that the pipeline would be restored at the end of the week.
“I would emphasize that there is a lot in getting a pipeline up and running again,” he said.
The White House deployed Buttigieg and EPA Administrator Michael Regan to the press briefing to lead the messaging about handling the crisis.
But the two government officials only listed minor shuffling of government regulations to help alieve the crisis and ongoing communications and monitoring from government officials.
When asked what his message was to Americans suffering gas shortages, Buttigieg replied, “My message is that we understand these concerns.”
These folks sure seem competent and in charge, don’t they?
I'm relieved that Pete Buttigieg is Secretary of Transportation during this gas supply crisis.
Imagine how much energy we could save if we all pretended to ride our bikes to work every day like he does.

Q: What's your message to Americans who are worried about how gas reaching $3 per gallon is going to impact their wallet?@PeteButtigieg: "My message is that we understand these concerns." pic.twitter.com/qsHfNgYPsE

Pete Buttigieg using the gas crisis to push their "infrastructure" plan is added proof that Democrats never let one go to waste.
