GREEN BAY, WI — Rep. Mike Gallagher (R-WI), a member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and the Armed Services Committee, today released the following statement regarding President Biden’s decision to release more oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve, which is already at its lowest point since 1984.

“President Biden’s war on American energy has helped cause gas prices to skyrocket. He could address this by unleashing domestic energy production, but has instead done anything but – begging dictators to produce more oil and depleting our Strategic Petroleum Reserve to its lowest point since 1984. Today’s announcement doubles down on this Green New Deal logic and is nothing more than an election gimmick that will endanger national security and do little to actually lower the cost of gas in the country. When Republicans win back the House, we will fight to restore energy independence and put an end to this insanity.”
