Texas Governor Gregg Abbott is ready to do what the Biden administration can’t.
Abbott posted a letter on Twitter in response to the White House’s plea to OPEC to produce more oil – a move Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) called “a whole new level of stupid.” Abbott insists Texas can help bring down gas prices by producing more oil domestically.
“Texas can do this,” Abbott wrote. “Our producers can easily produce that oil if your Administration will just stay out of the way.”
“Dear White House: Texas can do this. Our producers can easily produce that oil if your Administration will just stay out of the way. Allow American workers—not OPEC—[to] produce the oil that can reduce the price of gasoline. Don’t make us dependent on foreign sources of energy,” Abbott’s tweet read.
Abbott has consistently butted heads with the Biden administration. They disagree on the crisis at the border, COVID mandates and regulations, voter legislation, and now, oil production.
