After waging a war on the fossil fuel industry, the Biden White House is now blaming oil refineries for not doing a “patriotic duty” by increasing oil output.
Joe Biden made it very clear that he was going to shut down the oil industry.
“No more drilling on federal lands. No more drilling, including offshore. No ability for the oil industry to continue to drill. Period.” Biden said in 2020.

Joe Biden followed through with his threats and closed down the Keystone XL Pipeline in January 2021.
Gas prices are soaring now because of Biden’s war on domestic energy.
The US simply doesn’t have the pipelines to carry more oil.
Now Biden is blaming oil refineries and accusing them of price gouging.
