Except for maybe the Clinton’s I don’t think there are people more out of touch with the country than the Biden administration. In just 8 simple words Pete Buttigieg showed us just how dumb he really is.
During an appearance on MSNDNC Buttigieg said that families who own electric vehicles would get a discount of “$12,500” and that rural residents would benefit from them.
“The people who stand to benefit most from owning an EV [electric vehicle] are often rural residents who have the most distances to drive, who burn the most gas, and underserved urban residents in areas where there are higher gas prices and lower income,” Buttigieg said.
“They[rural residents] would gain the most by having that vehicle,” he added. “These are the very residents who have not always been connected to electric vehicles that are viewed as kind of a luxury item.”
Then came the whopper, Buttigieg claimed people owning electric vehicles would “never have to worry about gas prices again.”
Transportation Sec. Buttigieg says families who buy electric vehicles “never have to worry about gas prices again.”
Adding, low-income Americans “would gain the most by having that vehicle.”

One of President Trump’s former communications official Mercedes Schlapp mocked Mayor Pete.
“Everyone can probably afford electric cars in the world that Pete Buttigieg lives in,” Schlapp posted. “Average Americans struggling with record high gas prices? Not so much.”

As of October the average price of a new electric vehicle was $55,676 and depending on your local infrastructure you may only be able to charge it at home.
A base model Tesla car travels 267 miles and costs a base price of $45,000 and other models can cost up to over $100,000. AAA has also found that owning an electric vehicle costs an owner an average of $600 more a year than those who own a traditional gas-powered vehicle.
