Embarrassing: White House Accuses OPEC of Siding with Russia After Joe Biden Fails to Get Saudis to Pump More Oil
In July, Joe Biden, flew to Saudi Arabia to beg the monarchy to pump more oil.
Joe Biden does not want the US to produce more oil and gas. That would make too much sense. No, Joe Biden wants hostile regimes to provide the US with the oil we need here at home.
It wasn’t that long ago that the US was an oil exporter and gas was under $2.50 per gallon. But all that changed after Joe Biden took office.
In July the Saudi Minister of State told CNN that the regime refused to commit to boosting oil production.
And on Wednesday in a blow to Joe Biden and the West, OPEC leaders agreed to a major production cut of two million barrels of oil a day.
The new normal in the US of a gallon of gas is surging past $4/gallon again. Before Joe Biden the highest recorded gas price was $4.10 per gallon in 2008. Under Joe Biden the average price of gas in the last 6 months is way above that previous all-time high.
The price of a barrel of crude oil soared to $88 per gallon following the news earlier today.
This will have a serious impact on the already struggling US economy under Joe Biden.
The White House took the news in stride.
They accused OPEC of siding with Russia – OPEC is the new Putin Puppet!
The White House on Wednesday accused the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC+) of siding with Russia by deciding to cut oil production.
“Look, it’s clear that OPEC+ is aligning with Russia with today’s announcement,” White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said to reporters aboard Air Force One.
President Joe Biden also expressed his concern about the decision, calling it “unnecessary” as he left the White House to travel to Florida to witness the storm damage caused by Hurricane Ian.
The White House was sharply critical of the OPEC+ decision to cut production by two million barrels a day, calling it “short-sighted” and a “mistake.”
