Rep. Pfluger Statement on Biden Administration Blocking American Energy By Canceling Domestic Oil Leases

Washington, D.C. — Congressman August Pfluger (TX-11) released the following statement on the Biden Administration canceling oil leases in Alaska and the Gulf of Mexico:

Rep. August Pfluger (TX-11): “President Biden is blaming record-high inflation and skyrocketing energy prices on everyone but himself while canceling domestic oil leases at the same time. His war on American energy through ever-changing policies and uncertain regulations is only making it more difficult to produce energy here at home. I am calling on President Biden to immediately pass the Midland over Moscow Act, reduce barriers to increased production, and unleash American energy.”
