If you consider the effect on pricing of fuel


And the resulting impact on the consumer, the subsidies are irrelevant. Not to mention the creation of jobs fracking creates.

The innovation of fracking basically brought back this country from the Great Recession. The impact of the lower prices is more impactful on most Americans than a tax cut ( I think it was estimated to be $250/mo for the average family in fuel savings in ‘10.

Conversely, the dramatic cost of fuel today is a big impediment to the average family, not to mention the contribution it is making to inflation.

I’m a huge fan of EVs and renewables, and I think the technology innovations made thru the private sector will get us there. However, until then the govt needs to consider the impact of these policies on the average American.
