Joe Biden’s little stunt to grab some headlines could put this country into a significant bind as we head out of summer and into the fall and winter.
There is, of course, also the issue of possible hostilities breaking out on several fronts.
We will need to meet these challenges with oil reserves at their lowest in decades.
Nation at Risk
The reserve is meant for a true emergency, not to offset domestic production that this administration hampered in the first place.
Reserves are now around 461 million barrels and declining, a low we have not seen since 1985.
Not only that, but not all of the oil was used domestically, as Biden sent several million gallons to India, Italy, the Netherlands, and yes, China.
If there is a major catastrophe that stops oil production, a conflict that raises the demand, or even a harsh winter that calls for more oil, we are no longer prepared… all so Joe could get some headlines for the administration.
Tapping the reserve has never been the answer.
The answer has always been to allow fossil fuels and renewable energy to complement each other, not drive each other out of business.
Joe Biden has put this nation at risk, and for that, he must be held accountable.
