NC House Energy Chairman Dean Arp Responds to President Biden’s Remarks on Record-High Gas Prices

Raleigh, N.C. – At a press conference Tuesday, President Joe Biden said today’s skyrocketing gas prices were part of a “incredible transition” that would make our country stronger. North Carolina Representative Dean Arp (R-Union) released the following statement in response: “President Biden’s remarks Tuesday only confirmed what we’ve long suspected: that the far-left liberals who currently control the White House and Congress want higher gas prices to advance their own selfish, misguided interests,” Rep. Arp said. “It’s outrageous, it’s wrong-headed, and it hurts every American family — especially the middle class.” Rep. Arp noted that Biden administration energy policies had made the country weaker. “Under President Trump, America was energy independent. Two years later, Biden’s policies are making dictators in oil- and gas-rich countries like Venezuela, Iran, and Russia richer.” As chairman of the state House Energy & Public Utilities Committee, Rep. Arp vowed to champion balanced, common-sense policies to transition away from the use of fossil fuels such as coal for energy production. “Everyone wants a cleaner energy future, and we can have that,” said Rep. Arp. “But I will never allow special interests to achieve their reckless goals on the backs of working North Carolina families.”
