And even if gas went up you'd still see rich people in big trucks because they could afford it.
I view it also like COVID--those advocating for WFH and lockdowns back in 2020 had good STEM-y or medical jobs and their finances weren't touched. Same with gas prices--a lot of libs (not all) want higher gas prices to save the environment but they have good jobs that allow them to withstand cost increases easier than working-class folks.
The libs want a just transition that favors the poor and the middle class. That's what the infrastructure bills are all about.
