Biden’s Bureau of Land Management revised the number of unused approved applications for permits to drill (APD) for domestic oil and gas producers to just 6,700—after almost a year of claiming they had actually approved 9,000 unused permits to drill.
MAKE NO MISTAKE: Joe Biden and his Administration lied about more than 2,000 permits to drill in order to pass the buck for their assault on American energy and failed Green New Deal agenda. House Republicans will hold Joe Biden accountable for misleading the American people and attempting to blame America’s oil and gas producers for the energy crisis he created.
BIDEN’S ENERGY CRISIS AND WAR ON AMERICAN ENERGY BY THE NUMBERS:
Today, the national average for a gallon of gas is $3.35.
On the day that President Biden was sworn into office, the average price for a gallon of gas nationwide was $2.39.
Last year, the Biden Administration’s Securities and Exchange Commission introduced a new anti-energy regulation on businesses, forcing them to disclose their company’s potential impacts on Climate Change.
This regulation is estimated to increase costs for businesses to comply by up to $10.2 billion. This equates to a new cost of around$420,000 a year on average for a small business.
As of November, oil production on federal lands is down roughly 6% since its peak of 13 million barrels a day under the previous administration.
