Pfluger on Inflation: The Democrats' anti-American energy agenda is crushing American families
Washington, D.C. — Tuesday, Congressman August Pfluger (TX-11) released a statement following the report that prices spiked 8.3% in August 2022, higher than expected.
Rep. August Pfluger: “The August 2022 8.3% price hikes are even worse than expected—and largely driven by the extreme uptick in the price of energy and food. Gas utility bills are up 33% and electricity is 15.8% more expensive than it was a year ago. It is no wonder that one in 6 American households cannot afford to pay their utility bills. The Democrats' anti-American energy agenda is crushing American families. We must cut wasteful spending, return to pro-business policies, and unleash American energy independence.”
