The issue: President Biden released 50 million barrels of oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve.

A dip in our oil reserves may result in a temporary price drop at the pump, but President Biden’s real aim is to please his followers (rolling out a barrel, a ???? Nov 24 )

The first thing he did was shut down the Keystone pipeline after he was elected. Subsequently, he thwarted attempts at domestic oil production. This was a terrible step, because we are still in the infancy of developing energy to replace fossil fuels.

This should have been done one step at a time. These steps, he says, had no major contribution to our current high inflation. Anyone who believes so has never taken Economics 101.

While we were once energy independent and enjoying low gas prices at the pump, we are again being subject to the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries, which in 1973 led to terrible shortages and long gas lines and -????

It appears that Biden and Sen. Chuck Schumer are willing to put American citizens at risk in their quest for short-term political victory by tapping into the Federal Strategic Petroleum Reserve.

Schumer panics at the thought of Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s challenge.

First, Biden shut down our pipelines, begged OPEC for oil and waived sanctions on the Russian Nord Stream 2 pipeline, and now he taps our oil reserves.

Biden’s release of oil reserves is nothing more than a publicity stunt to drive down gas prices and solve the problem they have created.

It’s too little, too late and it will have little or no effect on gas prices, and he knows it.

The order to plunge the nation’s petroleum reserves to reduce rising gas prices does nothing more than make it look like the president is doing anything. One ????

Under the former administration, the United States was on a path to energy independence. In less than a year, Biden’s policies have undone all of that.

The move to close the Keystone pipeline and stop leasing oil on federal lands has resulted in the market conditions that have resulted in the current situation.

Supply, demand and incentives are basic economic concepts about which this administration is either completely unaware or willfully blind.

In the race for the bottom of the list of stupid presidents, the one???? Biden has now overtaken his mentor, President Barack Obama, by “????fixing”???? Our rising-gas-price problem.

JOA’s solution is to tap our energy reserves to release 50 million barrels of oil. To the average American, it sounds like an ocean of oil, but it’s actually 2.5 days???? Worthy of American consumption.

Biden can’t solve the energy crisis because he doesn’t understand the problem. Nor, it seems, are the economics that surround him and give advice.

In the meantime, we will spend 50 million barrels and continue to shut down pipelines and fracking in the homeland, solutions so clear they cry out for implementation.

The holiday season, and our beloved President Joe Biden, has given the American people 50 million barrels of our reserve oil supply. This is to reduce the high oil prices, which they created. Like robbing Peter to pay Paul.

You can go so far with this climate-control bologna. It hurts everyone, even the breasts who voted for them.

Democrats are the reason for this devastation in America. Big government, high taxes and socialism-??? What is it to us if you allow these idiots to control your life.

Biden begged OPEC to produce more oil, then tap into our federal reserves.

At all times, the United States has one of the largest supplies of oil and natural gas in the world.
