A President Biden will reinstate a lot of stupid and expensive rules concerning car mileage. From Eric Peters at ericpetersautos.com:
Elections have consequences, especially this one.
A decision has been made – never mind who made it – to make owning and driving a car much more expensive in the very near future.
Even if you don’t buy a new one.
One of the tenets of the Biden Harris campaign theology was fossil fuels bad – and “green” alternatives good. Whether they are, in fact, good, is one question. Whether they will dramatically increase the cost of driving is beyond question.
One way cost will increase will be indirect, via a decrease in supply – which necessarily raises the price of anything there’s high demand for. Motor fuels are in high demand. Whether you liked the Orange Man or not, the fact is he increased the supply by increasing production, a thing which the Joker-smiling creature (when he isn’t wearing his Face Diaper) promises to decrease production of. How much he fulfills that promise will determine how high the cost of motor fuels goes up.
It is also likely he will further uptick them via new taxes on the finished product, in order to discourage the buying and burning for the sake of the “greening.” Maybe you didn’t like the Orange Man. Hopefully you will like paying $4 for a gallon of gas. Possibly a great deal more. The Green New Deal envisions the end of fossil fuels – by force.
Via taxes, which aren’t voluntarily paid.
This is what was voted for – or rather, how the votes were counted for.
