Ernst said she also heard about rising energy costs, which have made it more difficult for farmers to continue feeding and fueling the world.
WASHINGTON—After visiting over 20 counties over the past two weeks on her 99 County Tour, including at public town hall meetings, visits with several Iowa small businesses, and meetings with farmers and agriculture workers, U.S. Senator Joni Ernst (R-Iowa) said the top concern she heard from Iowans was skyrocketing inflation under President Biden.
Ernst said she also heard about rising energy costs, which have made it more difficult for farmers to continue feeding and fueling the world. Ernst noted that the price of fuel has gone up since President Biden’s inauguration, and called on the administration to tap into our domestic energy resources and to put Americans to work.

Ernst introduced the PRICE Act which would require any bill from Congress to include a report on how it will impact inflation for the American people.
Ernst also led a bipartisan effort to replace Russian oil with clean, American-made renewable fuels that are available right now—creating jobs, lowering gas prices, and reducing dependence on our adversaries.
