Fox News host Dana Perino confronted White House press secretary Jen Psaki on “America’s Newsroom” Tuesday about President Joe Biden’s response to the rise in energy and gas prices.

Perino asked Psaki if the president would consider reversing his previous policies regarding energy in order to decrease U.S. dependence on foreign oil from countries like Russia. The global price of crude oil rose to over $100 per barrel the morning of Feb. 24 as Russia launched its full-scale invasion of Ukraine.

The article goes on to state the following:

“The president shares the concern about any impact on gas prices, on energy prices for the American people,” Psaki replied. “That’s why a range of options remain on the table. He already recently tapped into the Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR) just last fall that had an impact.”


“But the impact, Jen, that was a blip. It doesn’t last,” Perino said.

The press secretary said that if Biden were to reverse his decision to end the pipeline and instate a moratorium on American oil and gas companies receiving new federal leases would “not address the issue at all.”

Psaki also said that the energy crisis is a good reason to move away from crude oil altogether.

“We all want to take steps to address any raise in gas prices that impact the American people but we should be very clear about what policies will help and what policies will not help,” Psaki continued. “And over time, we absolutely need to reduce our dependence and that’s something you’re seeing European countries take steps to do as well.”

WATCH:

During the Fox News interview, Psaki went on to state that Biden has not taken Russian energy sanctions “off the table.”

Psaki’s comments on Fox News come 24 hours after she explained how devastating the sanctions would be to world energy markets from the White House podium.

  1. We are NOT Europe, we DO NOT have an established train network or public transportation system, America is a huge spread out country.
    Damn twit.

  2. BS as usual. It didn’t take years with President Trump. They’re all a bunch of liars. They’ll be judged by God for what they have done to the whole World.

  3. Biden and his band of idiots couldn’t balance a checkbook. I think they know very well that reinstating Trump’s energy policies will drop fas prices. But they are so fixated on chasing the green energy unicorn that they will raise prices to $10 a gallon if they have to. This is to strong arm Americans into buying these over pricd electric cars.

    • Electric cars are a joke. There is no infrastructure to charge them. And how many people are willing to wait an hour or longer to charge them? They might be fine if you only go to the grocery store around the corner. But it is impossible to drive one across the country in a reasonable amount of time.

  4. Remember, the goal is to destroy you, me and all of America as a whole. They don’t give two shits about energy independence and its costs

  5. They literally DO NOT CARE! Just by her answer this is exactly what they want. So are they planning on buying every person that owns a car an electric vehicle? I am sure I can’t afford a new car and I would assume I am not alone!

  6. They are just taking advantage of this situation they created so they can push their own agenda. They are perfectly ok with gas prices going up. They don’t care about the people of this country. They only care about their own power and wealth.
