Biden’s Black Friday Bombshell: Interior to Pursue Policies That Will Make Gasoline Even More Expensive

President Biden seeks further restrictions of oil and gas development on federal lands, substantially higher royalty fees.

WASHINGTON DC (November 23, 2021) – The American Energy Alliance (AEA), the country’s premier pro-consumer, pro-taxpayer, and free-market energy organization, strongly condemns President Biden’s Black Friday release of a report on the federal oil and gas leasing program calling for further restrictions on federal lands for oil and gas development.

AEA President Thomas Pyle made the following statement in response to the release of the report:

“Just days after taking to the podium to feign his concern for higher gasoline prices, President Biden’s Interior Department released a Black Friday bombshell report calling for even less drilling on federal lands and draconian increases in royalty payments. If enacted, theses policies would further limit our ability to produce oil and gas resources on federal lands and waters and lead to even greater pain at the pump.

“While Americans are enjoying their Thanksgiving holiday, despite the fact that they are paying more because of Biden’s anti-energy and inflationary policies, the Administration is attempting to bury their latest assault on the oil and gas industry with a Black Friday announcement. It’s just another example of their open disregard for the struggles of hard working American families. 

“President Biden’s actions speak louder than his words. He wants American families to think he cares about high gasoline prices, yet all of his actions since day one of his presidency make it abundantly clear he wants them to soar even higher.”
