Biden Regime Cracks Down Harder on Oil Production

As stratospheric energy costs drive up inflation and cripple the economy, the Biden Regime continues its war on domestic energy production.

On Monday,

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) issued a record of decision, reducing the land available for energy leasing in the National Petroleum Reserve in Alaska (NPR-A) to its level set in 2013.

This reverses Trump’s opening of frozen wasteland for oil and gas leasing.

The national average price of gasoline is currently $4.13/gallon, versus $2.38/gallon when Joe Biden’s shadowy handlers took power. We are asked to believe that this is Russia’s fault due to a local conflict that began 2 months ago. However,

Pump prices have surged throughout President Joe Biden’s first 15 months in office.

What else would you expect, considering that Biden campaigned on the promise that he would “get rid” of the fossil fuels that are the lifeblood of the economy?

Monday’s record of decision will make matters even worse:

The decision reduces land available by roughly 7 million acres, or approximately 36%, of the oil-rich area designated by the Trump administration.

This is part of a deliberate policy of our leftist rulers to drive up energy prices, consistent with their doctrine that energy consumption is offensive to the climate.

Meanwhile, the Biden administration has paused oil and gas leasing in the Alaskan Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and ditched a drilling project in Alaska that would have produced 100,000 barrels of oil per day, generated $10 billion in government revenue and created 2,000 construction jobs.

Biden has also canceled the Keystone XL pipeline permit, introduced fossil fuel regulations and his administration has proposed to make it harder for utilities to receive natural gas project approvals. Earlier this month, the DOI finally complied with a June 2021 court order forcing it to resume federal oil and gas leasing, but reduced land available by 80% and hiked royalty rates for drillers.

Energy policy reinforces what immigration policy already makes obvious. The Democratic Party is at war with the United States.
