Defying reality, New Hampshire Democrats are trying to divert the blame for escalating energy costs away from the true guilty party. Federal Democratic legislators and President Joe Biden are the real cause of the fuel shortages that continue driving up the cost of heating your home, driving your car, and lighting darkness.
The equation is simple: When supply goes down while demand remains the same, prices go up. Federal energy policies that restrict the supply of natural gas drive up its cost. Natural gas prices dictate the cost of electricity in our region. State energy policy plays no role in that calculation.
