The Biden administration scrapped three major deals that would have expanded energy production in the Arctic and Gulf of Mexico.
“The Biden administration has canceled one of the most high-profile oil and gas lease opportunities pending before the Interior Department. The decision comes at a challenging political moment when gas prices are hitting painful new highs,” reports CBS News.
“Gas Prices are the Highest Ever Recorded and the Biden administration cancels an Alaska oil and gas lease sale? This has got to stop. Unleash American Energy Joe!” posted Mike Pence on Twitter.
“Because, you know, stopping inflation is his number one priority. …as Biden said YESTERDAY,” added Sen. Ted Cruz.
