“Today I’m authorising the release of one million barrels per day for the next six months – over 180 million barrels,” Biden told reporters from the White House on Thursday afternoon.

“This is a wartime bridge to increase oil supply until production ramps up later this year. And it is by far the largest release from our national reserve in our history.

 

The US officials however declined to comment about how soon the oil and gas prices would go down even after the implementation of Biden`s order.

However, the president sent a stern warning to various oil companies in the United States not to take advantage of the situation to increase their profits

“No American company should take advantage of a pandemic or Vladimir Putin’s actions to enrich themselves at the expense of American families. Investing those profits in production and innovation, that’s what they should do. Invest in your customers,” Biden said.

The president revealed that the next step of his administration is to ensure that America creates long-term energy independence.
