Marco Rubio Urges Biden to Return to ‘Aggressively’ Producing Oil and Cutting Energy Dependence on Russia

Senator Rubio doubts President Biden will be able to increase oil and natural gas production levels as his party would prevent him from doing so

Florida Republican Senator Marco Rubio hopes that President Joe Biden will return the United States to ” aggressively” producing oil and natural gas in order to reduce dependence on Russian energy and stop providing Vladimir Putin with millions of dollars a day.

In an interview with Joe Kernen for CNBC in which they discussed the role that the United States and Western allies should assume regarding Russia’s invasion of Ukrainian territory, Rubio affirmed that Joe Biden “can and should” find a way to produce more oil and natural gas.

“What I’d like to hear, I won’t hear, and that is the president announcing that America is going to get back into the business of aggressively producing oil and natural gas and exporting it as well, becoming a player in the global market,” Rubio said.

Rubio finds it difficult

The Cuban-born senator added that he would expect Biden to “roll back some of these restrictions that they’ve put in place on natural gas, on new exploration in Alaska and in Texas on production,” and thus reach the metrics that were achieved in the 2019-2020 period.

This with the clear objective of “gradual reduction and ultimate elimination” of imports of Russian oil, which has recently been sanctioned by the free countries of the West after intervening militarily in Ukraine.

“I’d love to see him say [all of that],” Rubio said of Biden. “I don’t think he can or will, because the radical left wing of his party would go nuts.”

According to the American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers (AFPM), the United States imported an average of 209,000 barrels of oil per day and nearly 500,000 barrels of other petroleum products per day from Russia in 2021, accounting for 3% of the country’s total crude oil imports.

Bruselas, 1 mar (EFE).- El presidente de Ucrania, Volodimir Zelensky, rechazó este martes el mensaje de Rusia de que la invasión de Ucrania es una operación militar en la que solo se golpean infraestructuras de este tipo, ya que - advirtió - están "muriendo niños" en los ataques.  "¿Cómo puede (el presidente ruso, Vladimir) Putin hablar de ataques a infraestructuras militares cuando mueren niños y jóvenes? Ayer acabaron con la vida de dieciséis niños ucranianos", dijo Zelenski ante el pleno de la Eurocámara.
