“Alaska is the key to energy independence and lower gas prices for America. Development in Alaska also would be an economic boost for the nation. Biden continues to try to escape blame for skyrocketing fuel prices and runaway inflation.Let’s be clear about this: Rising fuel prices began BEFORE Russia invaded Ukraine. Americans know this, and they know when they are being lied to.
The national average price of gas had already risen 75 percent BEFORE Putin invaded Ukraine.
Remember that the price of oil is a futures market – it’s a look ahead at what’s to come. Joe Biden promised he would be hostile to oil production, and that’s exactly what he has done.
Joe Biden announced his hostility to fossil fuels on the campaign trail in 2019 and 2020 and he has governed that way as president since his very first day.
One of his first acts was to shut down exploration in ANWR in Alaska– where we hold billions of barrels of oil that have not been recovered.
In June 2021, he suspended oil and gas leases in Alaska that had been granted under President Trump. In 2022, he killed the future of the National Petroleum Reserve-Alaska and the Cook Inlet Oil and Gas Leases. If these projects were developed, it's estimated they would yield tens of billions in federal royalty revenues.
Many of these decisions have been championed by his Interior Secretary, Deb Haaland, who only made it through the confirmation process because of one tie- breaking vote from Lisa Murkowski.
Biden also killed the Keystone XL pipeline, which would have been a future source of oil beginning next year.
Just this February, he froze oil and gas leases AND PERMITS on public land and in federal waters.
Biden bragged about reversing “over 100 Trump-era policies” that had been designed to promote energy production. He was proud of it.
Biden has squandered the energy independence achieved under Trump for the first time in 70 years.
If Biden wasn’t trying to cut our energy production, why were the radical environmentalists cheering?
Finally, Biden made it sound like the problem is with oil companies not drilling on 9,000 already-approved leases. That’s misleading, because:
A lease just opens a 10-year window on drilling rights and can extend beyond that. Just having a lease doesn’t mean drilling can begin immediately. Oil companies have to contract rigs to drill the wells. They have to secure rights-of-way with states and landowners. And they have to be sure that a well will be profitable and worth the investment.
Thousands of unused permits are extremely common and always exist.
