This didn't work as planned because Biden out-smarted 'em...
...he drained America's oil savings account down by more than half its total volume, to levels not seen since 1982, all to buy mid-term votes for his party. Some of that savings account even got exported to China, for them to put in THEIR strategic petroleum reserve.
While all this hooey was happening, tight oil exports from Texas have grown to nearly 4 MM BOPD.
If the United States had to defend itself against aggressors, like China, we'd have to buy oil from OPEC, who, by the way, has saddled up almost entirely to China to be in IT'S long term oil supplier.
If United States energy policies appear to be managed by 4th graders. from Washington all the way down to Austin... copy that.
