December 15

On Friday, December 15th, the Biden administration continued to advance its radical environmental
agenda by significantly decreasing the number of offshore oil and gas lease sales over the next five
years. The Department of the Interior’s five-year plan allows for only three Gulf of Mexico lease sales,
the smallest number ever distributed. Limiting access to this crucial national asset inevitably leads to
everyday Americans facing rising costs at the pump, a decrease in good-paying jobs, and a weak America
as countries like Russia, Iran, and China benefit from the advantages of energy production.
