Biden to Release Oil From Reserve, but 18M Slated for China and India, Leaving US with Less than Two Days Worth

Gage Skidmore from Peoria, AZ, United States of America

President Joe Biden announced the release of 50 million barrels of oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR) on Tuesday in an effort to combat rising prices at the pumps, but nearly a third of it is reportedly earmarked to supply foreign countries, leaving the US with less than two days worth of gas.

“Our combined actions will not solve the problem of high gas prices overnight,” Biden announced on Tuesday. “It will make a difference. It will take time, but before long, you should see the price of gas drop where you fill up your tank and in the longer term we will reduce our reliance on oil as we shift to clean energy.” 

In a coordinated effort with India, China, Japan, the Republic of Korea and the United Kingdom, the United States will release 50 million barrels from the SPR, a supply of oil stockpiled for national emergencies, in an attempt to lower oil prices which are double what they were last year. 

“The President stands ready to take additional action, if needed, and is prepared to use his full authorities working in coordination with the rest of the world to maintain adequate supply as we exit the pandemic,” the White House remarked on Tuesday. 

32 million barrels will be loaned out to oil companies, and are to be repaid with their own barrels in the future, while 18 million are allegedly slated to be sold off to China and India.  

“As we come out of an unprecedented global economic shutdown, oil supply has not kept up with demand, forcing working families and businesses to pay the price,” said Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm during a White House briefing on Tuesday.

When a reporter asked how many barrels of oil the U.S. consumed a day, Granholm couldn’t answer, but the reporter replied that at the 2020 average daily consumption of 18.19 million barrels a day, and the administration was releasing “less than three days worth of supply from the Petroleum Reserve.” 

With 18 million barrels intended to be sold to foreign countries, the remaining 32 million barrels of oil will only keep America driving for less than two days. Sen. Kevin Cramer (R-ND) was quick to criticize the Biden administration for their decision. 

“The Strategic Petroleum Reserve is meant for supplying energy during national emergencies,” he said. “The only national emergency is President Biden’s awful energy policy in which he has purposefully curtailed American production and then embarrassingly pleaded OPEC to make up the difference.”

The powers at be are not moving fast enough to impeach him. Do the people of this nation need to get a petition to get him out or what needs to happen? We have to do something before it’s too late. I hear about impeachment, but I don’t see anything being done! I know there are a lot of people who say they WANT something done but don’t know what to do or where to begin.

Of course, was there ever any question? This is so BS, first, drawing down oil reserves is obviously a smoke screen, all the draw down would last about 3 days for consumption, second, as news reports for days, half of the draw down is going to China and India. Good Lord above, can it possibly get any worse? Of course, stay tuned.

BUTT HOLE BIDEN HAS FUCKED UP AGAIN! EVERY THING HE DOES TURNS TO SHIT! HE SHOULD DO THE RIGHT THING, APOLOGIZE TO PRESIDENT TRUMP FOR WINNING THE 2020 ELECTION BY CHEATING BIG TIME AND RENOUNCE THE PRESIDENCY. THEN RECOGNIZE PRESIDENT TRUMP AS THE WINNER OF THE 2020 ELECTION. THAT IS THE MOST RAPID WAY OF STREIGHTENING OUT THE AWFUL MESS BIDEN HAS MADE!

This senile buffoon and his moronic regime are completely eat up with stupid. They shut down a pipeline construction project, are contemplating shutting down another WORKING pipeline, sells off our reserves to his owner China, and then begs the rest of the world to increase oil production. HEY STUPID JOE, WE WERE ENERGY INDEPENDENT BEFORE YOU AND YOUR MAGGOTS TOOK OVER, BUT NOT ANY MORE!!!!

Thanks to all of the ignorant fools that ALLEGEDLY elected this jackwad, you idiots owe all of us a tank of gas and for YOU to pay for one of our trips to the grocery store.

And of course that was Obama’s plan all along. Biden is just a puppet mouthpiece. The globalists have been working on this for decades. Woodrow Wilson was a progressive and put the U.S. on this destructive path as well as Johnson and the majority of all the presidents. All presidents are picked long before they run by the globalists like Rothschild family. The only one who really threw a wrench in their plan was Trump. He is the only one we the people really were able to vote for. And, sadly he believed those around him were not lying to him, including Pence. He never should have listened to Fauci and given Fauci any power whatsoever. That was all planned out also. There is a reason Christ has to come back, first to continue fulfilling prophecy and for judgement on the earth, and those who have raised their fist to Him and deny Him. I am so thankful I will not go through the Tribulation. I encourage those who have not made a decision to embrace Him and follow Him, today is the day for salvation.

These democrats are something else. They thought the Trump and America was being run by Putin and the Russian. Along comes Joe and his open ties with China and not a word from them. They find that just great. What two face they are.
This oil and gas pricing is all in their plan to get us out of our gas cars and into electric cars. Remember Calif has said no gas cars or trucks to be sold in Calif by 2035.

We’d have more than enough supply if he hadn’t cancelled the Keystone XL pipeline project. So now, we deplete our ’emergency stockpile’ with 2/3 going to other countries. That ought to make about a 3cent difference in US gas prices! What an idiot! His advisors are just as stupid!

Keystone pipeline wasn’t completed yet, but the Biden admin, will not let Texas and louisiana produce any more, Texas already said they could make up the difference, but Biden won’t let them, Instead, he’s begging Opec to produce more, and Opec said NO and he’s even ask Russia for oil.

President Trump was filling the National Reserve with cheap domestic oil and the Progressive/Socialist/Idiots in Congress made that stop. Now one of the Progressive/Idiots wants to deplete the reserve and calls it a smart move.

That is a fine example of how Progressive/Socialists are Idiots.

Brandon is waging war upon America. He can’t violate the Constitution by prohibiting travel, but if you have no gasoline, well to bad, so sad. It is to stop interstate travel altogether. It is all about control.

It will cause other countries to slow production of oil thereby keeping prices higher. If you can’t afford gasoline, you can’t travel by car. It is a way of banning travel without actually coming out and saying so. Our oil reserves will be depleted with the sell off to foreign countries.

So what. Oil is abiotic meaning it’s constantly being made. It’s not a finite resource. The oil companies know this. Coal can be turned into oil. We can make synthetic oil. Anyone that hasn’t researched this needs to put on his mask, get vaccinated with the death vaccine, & trust the government for the remainder of his now shortened life.
