During a Tuesday interview on CNBC’s “Squawk Box”, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) explained with a detailed graph how Joe Biden and his administration’s policies have resulted in “an assault on American energy”.

“Joe Biden, when he was campaigning in 2020 — he promised the American people — he said, ‘If you elect me, I’m gonna shut down drilling … on federal land, I’m gonna shut down drilling — end it now’. That’s what he promised,” Cruz said.

“If you look at his record, it has been a relentless result all designed to do everything possible to stop domestic energy production, to stop production of oil in the United States, … natural gas, and it’s had its intended effect,” the Texas Senator said.

The average price per gallon of gasoline hit a record $4.59 on Monday, which is 47 cents more than a month ago, and all 50 states average prices above $4 per gallon, according to AAA.

The average national retail price for a gallon of regular gasoline is projected to surpass $6 by the end of summer. According to JPMorgan, prices could surge another 37% by August, hitting a $6.20 per gallon national average, as previously reported by The Freedom Times.

While speaking with reporters during a press conference in Tokyo on Monday, Joe Biden was asked, “In your view, is a recession in the United States inevitable?”

In response, the Democrat career politician claimed, in part, over the rising gas prices, “we’re going through an incredible transition”, suggesting that America and “the world” will be “less reliant on fossil fuels”.

“When it comes to the gas prices, uh, we’re going though an incredible transition that is taking place that, God willing, when it’s over, we’ll be stronger and the world will be stronger and less reliant on fossil fuels, when this is over,” Biden alleged.

During the 2020 campaign, Joe Biden said that his administration would “transition from the oil industry” and repeatedly called for no new drilling on public lands, as previously reported by this publication.
