Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm on Tuesday biffed two simple questions that anyone in her position should have been able to answer.

Granholm - the former Democratic Governor of Michigan who has zero experience in the energy sector - was asked how many barrels of oil the US consumes in a day, to which she replied "I don't have that number in front of me. Sorry." @townhallcom

REPORTER: "How many barrels of oil does the U.S. consume per day?"

Energy Sec. Granholm: "I don't have that number in front of me. I'm sorry."

Next, Granholm couldn't provide an answer as to when Americans can expect gas prices to drop, and how long she might expect a drop to last, to which she replied: "Yeah, I'm not going to make a prediction about how much and how long."

The Hill @thehill

Reporter: "Bottom line, how soon will Americans see prices at the pump drop, and how long do you expect that to last?"

Energy @SecGranholm: "Yeah, I'm not going to make a prediction about how much and how long."

Poster Comment:

Russia and Saudi Arabia cur back on planned production increases until after Biden releases his 50 million barrels so don't much of a price cut.

I read somewhere that US uses 50M bbl/day just for vehicle fuel in 1.5hrs. Maybe I misread that stat.
