House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) continues to justify Joe Biden’s restriction of American energy independence, (OAN) One America News’ Jasmin Hovey reported.

During a news conference last week, Pelosi was asked by a reporter, “How high do gas prices need to get before you would support something like opening up federal lands to drilling?” to which she responded, “I’m not for drilling on public lands”.

Pelosi claimed the price of gas, rising higher every day, “is directly related to what is happening in Ukraine.”

She also had trouble articulating the words “Strategic Petroleum Reserve”.

Gas prices in the Bay Area and the rest of the state have skyrocketed all week. The statewide average has reached $5.07 per gallon in California, according to AAA. That’s the highest average cost the state has seen in history. Gas is even more expensive in the Bay Area. San Francisco drivers paid an average of $5.21 a gallon while drivers in Alameda County paid $5.13 a gallon, Fox 2 KTVU reported. Continued Below
