GOP Looking to Prevent Joe Biden from Draining Oil Stockpile for Political Purposes Again

When oil prices hit the roof in November 2021, Joe Biden decided to tap into the nation’s Strategic Petroleum Reserve to try and bring prices at the pump down. A year out from the midterms and sky-high gas prices were destroying the Democrat’s chances for the election. Never mind that Biden was taking oil out of the SPR for a reason never contemplated by the Carter administration, who set the reserve up in 1977 as a buffer against an oil boycott by anti-Israeli Arabs. It was an emergency reserve for the West if the Arabs ever cut off the supply of oil.
