Biden blames Trump and Corporate greed for the increases... :shrug:

Biden's war on oil has contributed to raising the price of fuel post-covid (part of that is returning demand, but on the supply end, the Keystone XL pipeline could have replaced about half of the 1.5 million BOPD supply that was lost when stripper wells were Plugged and abandoned during COVID).

Artificially, indirectly, raise the price of motor fuels while trying to pimp EVs, and the result is that the extra fuel costs become a surcharge on everything shipped, and that's just about everything. In large part, the increase in cost of supplies and materials, right down to the broccoli on the grocery stores shelves, ties directly back to Biden's Energy Policy, and pandering to the whole Ecowhacko lobby.

Naturally, that means if you are selling something, those costs have to be recouped, and the help will want more money so they can maintain their standard of living, too.

It's a vicious cycle, and he set it in motion day one.

1.) Increased cost of energy
2.) Increased cost of labor
3.) Increased cost of Government regulation
4.) Increased cost of transportation
5.) Increased cost of shelter
6.) Increased cost of higher education
7.) Increased cost of medical care
8.) Increased cost of higher taxes
9.) Increased cost of imports

Bidenomics does nothing to solve any of these, and makes some worse.

Increase 1, 3, and 4, and all else gets more expensive.

Damn that Trump, out of office for over three years and apparently still setting policy! And How dare those bastard greedy corporations raise prices to partially cover the rising food, labor and utility costs, not to mention higher M&R costs, to give their investors a return on their dollars. This greedy corporations schtick is getting really old even with demonrats and blaming Trump, Joe's the one in charge or does he think it's still 2021? yeah that's probably it because his brain has melted faster than a ice cream cone in an Arizona summer.
