Lucas opposes Biden tapping Strategic Petroleum Reserve, reiterates call to increase domestic production

Lucas Opposes Biden Administration Tapping Strategic Petroleum Reserve, Calls on Biden to Increase American Energy Production

Cheyenne, OK (Nov. 23rd) – Congressman Frank Lucas (OK-03) released the following statement in response to President Biden’s decision to tap into the Strategic Petroleum Reserve:

“In just two years, the United States has gone from energy independent and net exporter to energy dependent. After canceling the Keystone XL pipeline and greenlighting Russia’s Nord Stream II, President Biden is now tapping our strategic reserves and imploring OPEC to produce more oil to mitigate a self-inflicted energy crisis.

“Right now, Americans are struggling with soaring gas prices and rising heating costs. American energy security and independence is essential to our national security and the economic security of every single American family. The decision to tap the Strategic Petroleum Reserve is not a sustainable nor responsible policy solution. It’s time to put American energy first and embrace an all-of-the above energy strategy- one that ensures American energy independence and economic prosperity for all Americans.”
