Representative Buddy Carter (R-GA) revealed that President Biden has drained the Strategic Petroleum Reserve during an interview with Fox Business Network's "Kennedy" on Thursday.
The President has been steadily emptying the SPR to combat record-high gas prices. However, with Hurricane Ian wreaking havoc, millions of Americans may be in dire need of those reserves that have been spent.
"Kennedy" Host Jackie DeAngelis asked Carter, "If the situation worsens in Georgia, in the Carolinas, and all of a sudden, we find ourselves needing more supplies than anticipated when the administration and the President [have] allocated those supplies, essentially, to just bring the price of gas down as a result of high inflation, your thoughts on where we stand, as a country, going into this."
Carter responded by saying, "Well, that's a great point. And that's what the reserves are for, for emergency situations, not to bring down the price of gas so that you can bring down inflation, which is what the Biden administration has used it for. Now, we find ourselves in a situation where perhaps we are going to need it."
The President's foolishness and terrible economic policy have left the nation in a precarious situation.
If it weren't for the rabid inflation caused by the President's economic policy, we might not have found ourselves in this situation. Unfortunately, that isn't the case and the President owes the American people an explanation.
