Biden cooperating with oil industry to get prices down..
Nevermind…he’s making shit up and mocking them them while asking them for a favor. Idiot. https://nypost.com/2022/06/21/biden-mocks-sensitive-chevron-ceo-michael-wirth-in-spat-over-gas-price-claims/
“He’s mildly sensitive. I didn’t know they’d get their feelings hurt that quickly,” Biden said at the White House when a reporter asked about Wirth’s rebuttal.
“We need more refining capacity. This idea that they don’t have oil to drill and to bring up is simply not true,” Biden said. “We ought to be able to work something out whereby they’re able to increase refining capacity and still not give up on transitioning to renewable energy.”
On June 10, Biden blasted oil companies for making record profits and urged them to increase oil production and refining capacity to alleviate gasoline prices. He also accused Exxon Mobil Corp (XOM.N) of making "more money than God" and not drilling enough in comments in Los Angeles earlier this month.https://www.reuters.com/world/us/us-energy-secretary-expected-meet-with-refining-executives-june-23-sources-2022-06-16/
"Your administration has largely sought to criticize, and at times vilify, our industry," Wirth said in a letter to Biden. "These actions are not beneficial to meeting the challenges we face."
