Biden Blames Russia/Saudi Arabia for Not Producing Enough Oil After Restricting U.S. Production


Breitbart: President Joe Biden complained that Russia and Saudi Arabia were not producing enough oil to alleviate high gas prices in the United States, despite his administration’s efforts to reduce domestic production.

“I do think the idea that Russia and Saudi Arabia, and other major producers are not going to pump more oil so people can have gasoline to get to and from work, for example, is not right,” Biden said during a press conference after the G20 Summit in Europe.

On Saturday, the president urged energy producing countries at the summit to boost oil production to pressure OPEC+ nations to increase supply and reduce gas prices around the world.

The president acknowledged to reporters that it appeared ironic he was traveling to Glasgow, Scotland, for a climate change summit with world leaders even while asking oil producing nations to produce more. But he argued that the economy was still powered by oil.

Biden said gas prices of over $3.35 a gallon in the United States were almost a tax on American workers, while it was Biden who cancelled the Keystone pipeline, shut down natural gas, oil and coal leases on federal lands.

Biden said the rise in gas is almost a tax? While it is typically the American worker who lives the farthest from their jobs and are forced to fill their gas tanks a few times per week.

In the next breath, Biden says he will stop government subsidies for oil production and spend more funding on subsidies for green energy to get to zero emissions by 2050, literally crushing the middle class whom he claims he wants to protect with his slogan:

“Build Back Better

So does Joe Biden really believes what he is saying? Is he so politically compromised he does not see the oxymorons that are embedded in each statement? Is it possible that his administration and Congress do not know that Biden is incapable of leading the largest, most powerful economy in the world? Or is it this …
