President Joe Biden’s time in the Oval Office has brought with it an all-out assault on America’s oil and gas industry, and while Americans have been feeling the pain of that, we haven’t even scratched the surface of how bad things will get yet.
Early on in his presidency Biden made it clear that he was determined to dismantle American’s energy independence and he’s been sticking to that plan ever since.
When Donald Trump was president, America was a net exporter of oil and gas, making fuel prices extremely affordable here at home.
Under the guise of “protecting the climate” Biden has completely flipped that around and forced us to import oil from foreign nations which not only HATE US, but ironically enough use methods of extracting the oil that are actually worse for the climate than the way American companies do it.
When the impact of this began to hit an already fragile American economy Joe Biden tried to save face by completely DRAINING our strategic oil reserves to artificially keep prices down but anyone with a brain knew that was just a temporary band-aid which would actually hurt the country MORE in the long run.
The solution to all of this is painfully obvious: remove the red tape that is keeping these oil and gas companies from being able to produce more – but Joe Biden has absolutely NO intention of letting that happen.
His Department of the Interior recently released its five-year plan for federal oil and gas leasing rights and it shows that things are going to get much worse.
Biden’s government plans to sell the smallest number of offshore drilling rights in the history of the federal leasing program. They also aim to COMPLETELY stop leasing off the Alaska coast and in the Pacific and Atlantic oceans.
The plan consists of just THREE lease sales in five years, all in the Gulf of Mexico. To put that number in perspective, Obama, who also hated this American industry approved more than 10 leases in both five-year plans he released during his terms.
President Donald Trump had planned to propose 47 new lease sales!
The government is legally required to submit this plan in a timely manner, and the previous one expired in June 2022, meaning this out-of-control Biden regime released this more than 15 months late.
This was no accident. Biden hoped that these 15 months of uncertainty would effectively cripple the domestic oil and gas industries, which they did. Then the shocking announcement of just three lease sales put the proverbial nail in the coffin for those companies.
The Biden energy policy is handicapping America in the most painful way possible, while propping up countries like Russia, Iran, and China – which could ultimately be what Joe Biden aims to accomplish.
All of this means that the future is looking rather painful for the American consumer!
Our entire nation runs on oil and gas. From the fuel that goes into transporting everything we consume to the heating and cooling of our homes – these prices impact every aspect of our lives and they will now skyrocket to levels that the average American family simply can’t afford to pay.
Biden’s war on oil and gas is really just a war on the American people.
