Biden Admin Takes Credit for Drop in Gas Prices Mandated by Congress – EVOL

Democrat President Joe Biden’s Department of Energy (DOE) has falsely claimed responsibility for a reduction in gas prices.

Biden’s DOE announced that it took action to “help lower gas prices ahead of the Fourth of July holiday.”

However, the move was mandated by Congress earlier this year when lawmakers voted to sell off a million-barrel oil reserve.

The DOE deceitfully took credit for the move in its announcement, heaping praise on the “Biden-Harris Administration.”

Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm argued that it “continues to take strategic action to lower prices for American consumers in every aspect of their lives—especially as summer driving season ramps up.”

“By releasing this reserve ahead of July 4th, we are ensuring sufficient supply flows to the Northeast at a time hardworking Americans need it the most,” Granholm added.

Buried in the announcement, the DOE admitted that the action was undertaken “in accordance with the 2024 Consolidated Appropriations Act.”

However, the Biden admin declined to explain further.

In reality, however, the sell-off was done under the 2024 Consolidated Appropriations Act.

The 2024 Consolidated Appropriations Act is the bipartisan fiscal year 2024 government funding bill passed in March.

The bill mandated the Biden administration to entirely sell off the 1-million-barrel
