After Russia invaded Ukraine, however, the approvals picked up with 473 approved in March and 357 approved in April. Those approvals were still much less than the 600+ approved in April and May 2021. And, there is still a large number of pending permits: over 4,400. Biden’s call on U.S. oil and gas producers to drill more — and his...

President Biden's Gas Tax Holiday: Another Empty Gesture

Americans need real regulatory reform, not empty gestures.


WASHINGTON DC (06/22/2022) – Earlier today, President Joe Biden called for temporarily suspending the federal gasoline tax, asking lawmakers to pass a three-month pause on the federal 18-percent-per-gallon tax.

In 2021, however, coal production increased due to increased demand from rising natural gas prices and increased exports. U.S. coal exports  increased 23...
