Biden's Depletion of the Strategic Petroleum Reserve Could Be Catastrophic Soon

Biden’s botched withdrawal from Afghanistan may have tanked his approval ratings, but record inflation and soaring gas prices kept them underwater.
As fuel prices reached historic highs, Biden stubbornly refused to do anything that would increase domestic supply, opting instead to buy fuel from overseas before eventually raiding the Strategic Petroleum Reserve. It was a foolish thing to do, and while gas prices have gone down, the impact of raiding the reserves is debatable. But one thing is for sure: Biden depleted the reserves, which are now at a 37-year low, to boost his poll numbers.

I agree. There were many of we conservatives that pointed this out months ago when Joey Xi first proposed raiding the SPR.
We will soon see if our warnings come to pass. BYW just a week ago another Oil refinery blew up.

Biden is the most dangerous man ever to sit in the white house

The SPR is over 300 million barrels.. Biden has auctioned off less than 30 million to the highest bidder.

PJ Media is a tabloid.

And there was no good reason to do it.

Less than two years into his presidency, President Biden has released more oil from the nation’s Strategic Petroleum Reserve than all previous presidents combined. To date, Mr. Biden has allowed over 200 million barrels to be withdrawn—more than 30% of the total reserve he inherited, intended to be used in case of urgent need. The SPR is at its lowest level since 1984, when U.S. oil consumption was considerably less and the reserve was initially being stocked. Mr. Biden’s rapid depletion of the SPR is a national-security risk.

Even before Russia invaded Ukraine in February, Mr. Biden had been aggressively tapping the SPR. There have been only three previous emergency releases: 17.3 million barrels during Operation Desert Storm in 1991, 20.8 million barrels following Hurricane Katrina in 2005, and 30.6 million barrels following military intervention in Libya in 2011.

The SPR was established in 1975, following the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries’ oil embargo, to mitigate supply disruptions. The reserve is further enshrined in a multilateral agreement between the U.S. and 30 other countries of the International Energy Agency, with each country having “an obligation to hold oil stocks equivalent to at least 90 days of net oil imports.”
America consumes about 20 million barrels of oil and other petroleum products each day. It produces 11.3 million barrels of crude oil domestically and imports another 8.5 million barrels of oil and petroleum products. As a slight net exporter of petroleum, U.S. trade fluctuations make it difficult to calculate an ideal amount of petroleum reserves. Mr. Biden’s rapid SPR depletion, however, means the current supply would cover only about 50 days if imports suddenly ceased, putting America’s economy and security at risk.
Also troubling is Mr. Biden’s business with dubious regimes. He sold SPR oil to China and continued importing Russian oil weeks after the Ukraine invasion. He pandered to Saudi Arabia for oil, after promising to make the country a “pariah,” and courted Venezuela in a bid to increase the authoritarian regime’s production.
Mr. Biden played a main role in creating this precarious situation with his campaign promise to “end fossil fuels.” This started with an executive order on Inauguration Day halting the Keystone XL pipeline, and it has continued with Mr. Biden essentially halting federal oil and gas leases. According to the Journal’s Sept. 4 analysis, this administration has leased fewer acres than any other administration since the end of World War II.
This week, the White House announced plans to release another additional 10 million barrels from the SPR in early November. This could perhaps be an attempt to tamp down gasoline prices before the midterm elections.
Mr. Biden should instead correct course by ending his war on fossil fuels and adopting an all-of-the-above approach that supports fossil fuels while also pursuing energy sources with low carbon emissions. Until then, he will be putting ill-conceived campaign promises before American energy security.

Your cries of tears are even more delicious.

Right now it sounds like all the tears are coming from your pink-panties ass. Try sticking to the topic little girl:

Can't let that oil sit in salt caves leaking forever.
