"Spend More On Education Will Solve Gas Shortage"
Question To Biden: “How do we end the gas shortage on the East coast?”
Biden: “Federal spending on education.”
“I think that this shows that I think we have to make a greater investment in education as it relates to being able to train and graduate more people proficient in cybersecurity,” Biden said
“I think that one of the most important things we have to do to reclaim our place as the leading innovator in the world is to have a better-educated workforce,” (Biden then, admitted his answer was not a “direct response” to the question.)
Biden offered his sympathy to Americans suffering from spiking gas prices.
“Gasoline. Price is going up. Exactly right. And it matters if you make $40,000 a year, it matters if you’re a two-family person making $80-$90,000, two fam.. wage earners, it matters,” he said.
Biden official: “There was not a shortage, but a crunch.”
Press secretary Jen Psaki too seemed perplexed and struggling:
“On Monday afternoon — so 48 hours ago — we said ‘at this moment there is not a supply shortage’ that was accurate, ‘at this moment.’” she told reporters. “We also said that we are continuing to monitor very closely what the impact will be.”
