Insane, I don’t know (though I’m starting to think so). But dear leader’s certainly removed from reality as far as how gas prices affect Joe Sixpack.
Heck, when was the last time he had to worry about fuel prices or grocery prices cutting into his budget? When was the last time he had to worry about keeping his business running when the price of getting supplies was more than what he brought in every week? And since he’s the last person to be affected by his decrees, what incentive does he have to make sure things work out?
Simple - Joe Sixpack will have to stop using gasoline and electricity. That’s the goal.
