Jen Psaki: Biden Administration NOT Slowing Domestic Drilling

Another day, another Jen Psaki lie.

The administration is taking a lot of flack right now for rising gasoline prices.

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki, however, is claiming the rising prices have nothing to do with Joe’s policies.

Not Our Fault

The first thing Biden did when taking office was to slam the brakes on domestic production of oil.

This resulted in the halting of new leases being issued and more foreign imports.

This, of course, immediately raised the price of gasoline, more or less putting a cap on what would be purchased domestically.

In addition, they halted the final construction of the Keystone XL pipeline, a project that would have streamlined the transportation of oil from Canada into the United States.

This too would have lowered costs, completely eliminating the need for expensive transportation.

This was the exchange between Psaki and Doocy on the matter…

Fox News’ Edward Lawrence reached out to the president and CEO of the American Petroleum Institute (API) for clarification on Psaki’s claim regarding the 9,000 approved and unused permits.

The group stated that the policies put in place by this administration are “hindering American energy development during a critical time.”

Lawrence continued, “Also, he says the royalty fees increasing on drilling discourages investment.

“So are there any plans to reverse any of these policies to encourage investment?”

Psaki responded, “I think he may have avoided your question.

“I mean, because the fact is that onshore alone, as of the start of this year, the industry had more than 9,000 unused approved permits to drill in the United States, and I didn’t hear him speak to that in particular.”

What Psaki is not talking about are the regulations, fines, and fees that have been put in place regarding domestic drilling that have, as Lawrence noted, made oil a bad investment, which is more than likely why permits are sitting unused at this point.
