Why Gas Got So Expensive (It’s Not the War)
Wendover Productions, 2022
When gas prices go up, people demand answers.
If you live in the United States, you’ve likely heard people express rage at the current administration for rising gas prices, but you may also suspect that the world economy is a little more complicated than that. According to Sam Denby at Wendover Productions, the current surge in gas prices has little to do with politicians, and everything to do with a sudden (and profitable) switch in overall strategy for the oil and gas industry. High gas prices actually mark the swan song of a dying trade, an industry that’s scrambling to capitalize on the unwieldy transition as the world switches to renewables.
