Coming Clean On The Pelosi Premium

David Freddoso writes, “Republicans are jumping on Nancy Pelosi for getting the price of gasoline wrong by nearly a dollar in an interview”:

I argue today that this is less significant than the fact that her promise to bring down gas prices was already a lie the moment she first uttered it. Pelosi isn’t failing to do something about gasoline for lack of leadership or a plan, but because lower gas prices undercut a hugely important plank in the Democratic platform.

Higher gas prices are an essential part of creating economic disincentives against carbon pollution
