Irina Tsukerman, an attorney, analyst, and a member of the American Bar Association’s Energy and Environment Committee, is calling Joe Biden’s release of the strategic oil reserves illegal.

She said Biden is violating the Energy Policy and Conservation Act, which directs that strategic oil reserves can only be released to the market when there’s an emergency and that emergency caused high energy prices. She warned that a low oil reserve puts America in a vulnerable situation, giving leverage to the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) and terrorists.

“We won’t have the reserve that we need to handle every emergency. It sends a signal to terrorists, criminals, and bad actors that we’re low in emergency oil supply,” she said. “It also sends a signal to foreign actors to manipulate oil supplies.”

Irina Tsukerman said Biden is using the reserves for bolstering the Democrat nominees rather than an emergency,

“He’s abusing his power and he’s overreaching his authority on this matter because he believes that American voters will vote against Democrats in midterm elections largely on basis of gas prices. So he believes that if you provide additional supply quickly, people do not blame the Democrats for the high gas prices.”

Americans would like Government officials to be held accountable. It is past time for Democrats to join Republicans in opposing Biden’s release of the reserve and push him to re-open American gas and oil production.

And while Joe Biden denied that he was using the reserve for political gain, The White House announced in March that the Energy Department would release a total of 180 million barrels, at a rate of 1 million barrels of crude oil per day for six months. Biden has consistently made a point of taking credit for gas prices going down while ignoring that they skyrocketed after he took office and immediately closed the Keystone Pipeline, giving America an ample energy supply. The drop in price at the pump comes from using our strategic reserve rather than better policies, making price cuts temporary. But Democrats are desperate to hold as many house and senate seats as possible, while national security is just an afterthought.


Biden denied that the release of the strategic reserve was politically motivated. According to The Epoch Times, he said,

“It’s not politically motivated at all. It’s motivated to make sure that I continue to push on what I’ve been pushing on. And that is making sure there’s enough oil that’s being pumped by the companies so that we have the ability to be able to produce enough gas that we need here at home, oil we need here at home, and, at the same time, keep moving in the direction of providing for alternative energy. That’s what I’ve been doing.”

Ted Cruz said the skyrocketing gas prices are a direct result of “Joe Biden’s war on American oil and gas.”


Republican said they have a strategy for improving America’s energy future. Rep Bice says two years ago, America was energy independent until Joe Biden and the Democrats took office and started a war on American energy, “The price of gasoline, natural gas and electricity has skyrocketed for hardworking Americans, jeopardize our national security and making us dependent on foreign adversaries for energy.” She said Republicans would lower the cost of gas and energy if they took back the House during mid-term elections.

Rep. Jim Jordan warns Americans to prepare for a “cold and expensive winter in Joe Biden’s America.” Natural gas increased by 28%, and heating oil by 27%.
