AAF on US Drained Petroleum Reserve

October 13th, 2023

Advancing American Freedom released the following statement as the Strategic Petroleum Reserve hits historic lows in the midst of Israel’s war with Hamas in the Middle East.

“The Strategic Petroleum Reserve was created to be used in emergency scenarios, not for the Biden administration to tap into when they hit a bad news cycle on their record-breaking inflation,” said AAF Executive Director Paul Teller. “The Biden administration’s decision to drain the reserve has consequences we are seeing now. The job of our government is to protect US resources for times of uncertainty, but the Biden administration has put the United States in a critical position. We must harness America’s natural resources and replenish our oil reserve with domestic oil production. Now is the time to unleash American energy and make us not only independent, but a resource to other western nations, so no one needs to crawl to Iran, hat in hand.”
