A new report is out tonight that suggests the Biden administration is talking with oil companies to restart idle oil refineries:
The Biden administration is reaching out to the oil industry to inquire about restarting shuttered refineries, as the White House scrambles to address record high-gasoline prices that are setting off political alarm bells ahead of the midterm elections.
Members of the National Economic Council and other officials have inquired within the industry about factors that led some refining operations to be curtailed and if plans are underway to restart capacity, a person familiar with the matter said. The person, who wasn’t authorized to speak on the record, added no direct ask to restart operations was made.
The White House didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
Why not just unleash the freaking oil industry by fast tracking permits to drill baby drill?!?!?!
These idiots are just playing around the edges, hoping to get a little break in gas prices so they can claim political victory while continue to plow over Americans with their green new deal agenda. Or they want to at least say they are really doing something about high gas prices.
The election is getting closer and they are desperate because Biden’s poll numbers are in the tank and continuing to go lower:
**JUST IN… Joe's approval drops to 36%, 59% say Biden doing a terrible job**https://t.co/8WjS0MwXxF

This will just end up being another of Biden’s pathetic attempts that won’t go anywhere. But it will give them and the media a false narrative that they’ll try and use to resurrect Biden’s fledgling poll numbers.
