Schumer & Pelosi Slammed Trump For A Much Better Situation Than This

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., tried to throw mud against the wall and see what sticks by accusing former President Trump of the high gas prices under his Administration. However, the numbers are worse under President Biden.

Pelosi and Schumer both took aim at Trump in 2018 over gas prices across the nation as they neared the $3 mark, but Biden hasn't gotten the same approach even as prices are much higher than they were then.

Currently, gas prices sit at $3.39 per gallon — well above the $3 mark that Pelosi and Schumer denounced as too high under the previous Administration.

One of the shots Schumer took against Trump over gas prices was ahead of Memorial Day Weekend in 2018.

"Are you creeping along on fumes because #GasPrices are so high?" Schumer tweeted in 2018. "I'll join [Senator Maria Cantwell,] [Senator Bob Menendez] & [Senator Ed Markey] to push [Trump] to start fighting for lower gas prices for hard working Americans LIVE in a few minutes."

While he took less of a rigid position with Biden on the rising prices, Schumer pressured the current President to open up the Strategic Petroleum Reserves to offset the rising prices — a move made by Biden that critics have compared to treating a serious injury with a band-aid.

Pelosi has not taken any combative stance with Biden over the gas prices — in stark contrast to her words for Trump in 2018.

"Prescription drug prices are skyrocketing. Gas prices continue to rise. Health care costs and premiums are through the roof. Wages are stagnant. What is the solution Trump and Republicans in Washington propose?" Pelosi tweeted in July 2018 about the Republicans' Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. "More tax cuts for the ultra-wealthy."

"You can't make this stuff up," the speaker added.

Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg was slammed by critics Monday after he claimed that more Americans should purchase electric vehicles so that they "never have to worry about gas prices again."

The former South Bend, Ind., mayor claimed on MSNBC's "Sunday Show with Jonathan Capehart" that families who own electric vehicles would see a "$12,500 discount" in transportation costs.

"The people who stand to benefit most from owning an EV [electric vehicle] are often rural residents who have the most distances to drive, who burn the most gas, and underserved urban residents in areas where there are higher gas prices and lower income," Buttigieg said.

Conservatives on Twitter mocked Buttigieg's argument that buying an electric vehicle would be a money-saver for Americans.

"Everyone can probably afford electric cars in the world that Pete Buttigieg lives in," tweeted Trump White House communications official Mercedes Schlapp. "Average Americans struggling with record high gas prices? Not so much."
