Joe Biden has been making some pretty serious public gaffes lately that have left the White House having to do some major damage control. Since Biden has gained international recognition for his habit of grossly misspeaking (i.e., calling for a regime change in Russia), he has shown no improvement in choosing his words carefully.

On Thursday, while announcing the planned release of 180 million barrels of oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve over the next six months, Biden stated, “If your home is powered by safer, cheaper, cleaner electricity like solar or heat pumps, you can save about $500 a month on average.”

The White House later released a transcript of Biden’s speech, but crossed out the word “month” and replaced it with “year”. That’s a pretty significant difference.


Aside from Biden’s misspeaking, he made an intentional statement that was received with more shock from the public than his actual mistake.

Biden suggested that “we can take advantage of the next generation of electric vehicles, that a typical driver will save about $80 a month from not having to pay gas at the pump.”
