No, Corporate Greed Is Not to Blame for High Gas Prices

Jeff Luse writes in National Review that corporate greed is not to blame for high gas prices.

The C3 Take
  • Progressive lawmakers have begun to blame corporate greed and price gouging for the high price of gas, when in fact global supply and demand is largely to blame.
  • As economies opened up after the pandemic, global demand for gasoline rapidly outpaced supply, leading to high prices.
  • Political signals from the Biden administration have also exacerbated the problem and made it harder for domestic companies to produce energy.
  • While there is little that Biden can do in the short term, he can lower prices long-term by reducing regulations and investing in key energy infrastructure.

“While gas prices are largely a result of global markets, policy decisions affect future supplies and investments. The ill-considered energy agenda being pushed forward by the White House has hurt American companies and consumers alike.”
