Its about eliminating the rural vote and herding us into socialist enclaves (cities). Making gas and electricity expensive negates the cheaper real estate of country living.
This is already happening here in SoCal, via the electricity company (SoCal Edison) and the water company (Golden State Water Co)— monthly bills are outrageous and climbing. Rate increases are requested virtually monthly and are granted via the rubber stmping CPUC which is part of the conspiracy designed to impoverish the middle class. All part of UN Agenda 21 which has been incorporated into state legislation here in California.
