U.S. Senator John Barrasso of Wyoming spoke on the Senate floor Tuesday about what he referred to as President Biden’s war on American energy. Barrasso, a ranking member of the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources, said he came to the floor to talk about the need for more American energy – not the energy the President is begging OPEC or Russia to produce for America.
Barrasso said last week an estimated 50 million people over Thanksgiving weekend took to the roads and those who drove paid the most for gasoline that they have in seven years. Barrasso noted that gasoline and diesel fuel prices are sky high, and they have increased by more than a dollar a gallon since Joe Biden took office in January.
