Last week, in what appeared to be a direct appeal to produce more oil, French President Emmanuel Macron delivered bad news to Joe Biden at the G-7 Summit in Germany about the worldwide oil crisis. During the conversation that (intentionally?) took place in front of journalists, Macron explained about attempts to get Arab nations to produce more oil to lower the spike in gas prices. The French President explained to a confused Joe Biden that the United Arab Emirates is at max capacity and the Saudis can’t produce much more. Jake Sullivan, Biden’s national security advisor, who noticed the conversation taking place in front of journalists, quickly interrupted and suggested they take the conversation inside. “Careful! Maybe we should just step inside—because of the cameras,” Sullivan said.

Macron’s public plea for assistance from Biden appeared to have worked. Only one week after returning from the G-7 Summit, “President” Biden, who has made every effort to destroy America’s energy production, and whose first act as “president” was to shut down the Keystone Pipeline, is offering to send 5 MILLION barrels of oil to Europe and Asia.
As parents across America are taking on second and third jobs to help put food on the table and gas in their vehicles, Joe Biden will ship 5 MILLION barrels of oil from the United States’ Strategic Oil Reserve abroad after claiming that releasing them would help ease Americans’ pain at the pumps.
Daily Mail reports – Joe Biden faces accusations of a sneaky sleight of hand as it was revealed that between a fifth and a sixth of the reserve oil he bragged about releasing to boost supply made its way offshore to Europe and Asia in June.
Biden authorized the release of a million barrels a day from April onwards. But his action has done little to combat soaring gas prices, with the national average sitting at $4.74 as of Tuesday – still far above the $2.28-a-gallon average from just before he took office.
Biden’s announcement about releasing the oil barrels was made in April, and saw him say: ‘These releases will put more than one million barrels per day on the market over the next six months, and will help address supply disruptions caused by Putin’s further invasion of Ukraine and the Price Hike that Americans are facing at the pump.’
But it has had little effect, with a closer look at the press release revealing that the oil released from the strategic reserve was always destined for the highest bidder – even if they were overseas.
