President Biden’s Secretary of Energy, Jennifer Granholm, is the latest Democrat to suggest the solution to high gas prices is to buy an electric vehicle, which costs at least $60,000. 

In a clip tweeted by the Republican National Committee Tuesday, Granholm made a case for going electric to combat surging gas prices. 

Democrats created the crisis to then bring in their plan as a solution.

It’s the same scenario over and over again.

“If you filled up your EV [electric vehicle] and you filled up your gas tank with gasoline, you would save $60 per fill-up by going electric rather than using gasoline… it’s a very compelling case, but again, we want to bring down the price at the point of purchase,” Granholm said. 

The comments by Granholm follow the record-setting surge in gas prices, which have now pushed over $5 per gallon. 

According to Fox News, Granholm made similar points in a White House press briefing in May 2021.

“If you drive an electric car, this would not be affecting you,” she said during the briefing. 

Granholm is worth roughly $8 million, according to Forbes. She recently served as the director of an electric car company called Proterra.

In May, she exercised stock options in the company, pocketing about $1.6 million from the transaction, according to an energy department spokesperson.

According to Kelley Blue Book, the average cost of an electric vehicle is $56,437, which is approximately $10,000 higher than the industry average, including electric and gas cars.
