WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, U.S. Senator John Barrasso (R-WY), ranking member of the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources (ENR), issued the following statement regarding the announcement by OPEC+ that it intends to increase production by 100,000 barrels daily in September, a lower amount than the increases the group announced for July and August.
“It’s no surprise that President Biden’s hat-in-hand trip to Saudi Arabia is coming up short,” said Barrasso. “America would be better off and more prosperous if we turned to our own energy producers. No cartel will save this administration from its terrible energy policies. It is high time to unleash the resources this administration keeps trapped in the ground. It is time to make America energy dominant again.”
