EXCLUSIVE — Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) released a new video on Wednesday teasing his energy policy strategy, vowing to undo the Biden administration’s policies and ramp up domestic fossil fuel production to lower gas prices to $2.
DeSantis said in the video that, as president, "we're going to open up all energy production."
"We will be energy dominant again in this country," the Republican presidential candidate adds.
The video splices together various news clips from the last 21 months, tracing how oil demand growth and Russia’s invasion of Ukraine pushed gas prices to their highest-ever national average of more than $5 per gallon, adding price pain for consumers and sending President Joe Biden's approval rating plummeting to its lowest point.
