Editor:

A recent letter in the Daily Sun did a good job to describing how the law of supply and demand can affect inflation.

A good example of that has to do with President Biden’s executive orders with which he stopped construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline and placed a 60-day moratorium on new oil and gas leasing or drilling permits on federal land. Naturally, these orders reduced the supply of oil and natural gas and as a result there have been very significant increases in the costs of gas for cars and the energy for heating buildings.

Perhaps the inflation of those costs could have been avoided if President Biden had been able to use an executive order to rescind the law of supply and demand.
