Railroad Commission of Texas Chairman Wayne Christian issued the following statement regarding President Biden’s decision to release 50 million barrels of oil from the U.S. Strategic Petroleum Reserve.
“Today’s actions demonstrate the Biden Administration is more interested in temporary political gain than addressing systemic policy issues that drive up the cost of energy, destroy high-paying jobs and harm our national security,” said Christian. “Instead of pandering to a vocal minority of climate catastrophists, Biden should unleash domestic energy producers to provide affordable, reliable energy for the American people.”
“Biden’s polling is at record lows because the American people are increasingly sick of his expensive, dangerous policies,” continued Christian. “From his disastrous withdrawal in Afghanistan and his weak stance on China to bending the knee to OPEC+ and now withdrawing from the strategic petroleum reserve, Biden has unnecessarily put the United States at a severe geopolitical disadvantage just for the sake of virtue signaling that he is progressive on climate change.”
