Sen. Marshall Statement on Biden Admin Strategic Petroleum Reserve Announcement

(Washington, D.C., October 19, 2022) – U.S. Senator Roger Marshall, M.D. release the following statement after the Biden Administration’s strategic petroleum reserve announcement:

“We all know the decreased supply of gasoline is on the back of Joe Biden’s policies. It is shameful that because of these policies, the President is having to dip into our emergency reserve yet again,” said Senator Marshall. “After his shameless efforts in the Middle East begging Riyadh for more oil backfired in spectacular fashion, Biden has again resorted to weakening America and decreasing our combat readiness by tapping into our strategic petroleum reserves for short term political gain. Desperate to cover up the senseless – yet all too predictable – pain caused by his promises to ‘end fossil fuels’ he first turned to foreign governments, then to our emergency stockpiles, while completely ignoring the abundant resources we have at our disposal right here in the United States. The American people won’t be fooled however, and this move won’t save the Democrats come November.”
