in a news story today, biden is releasing iirc 50 million barrels of u.s. strategic oil from our energy reserve: link: U.S. Joins with China, Other Nations in Tapping Oil Reserves (msn.com) imo this is foolish, why? that strategic reserve is for a "emergency" not for a short term fix to gasoline and natural gas prices. while biden is begging opec, and other nations to increase their oil drilling & production, to meet our needs. this is all caused imo by biden shutting down our drilling, pipelines, to appease "the squad". under trump the u.s. was energy independent!! the u.s. even sold oil and natural gas to other nations. and gasoline prices were low!! if any of you think i am wrong, i would like to hear from you on why i am wrong. i enjoy different idea's put before me. thanks.
