Congressman Tim Ryan's Statement on Opening The Strategic Oil Reserve

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

In response to rising gas prices that are hurting most Americans, Congressman Tim Ryan released the following statement:

"Over the past few years, gas prices have risen steadily, and are now approaching $4 per gallon. In spite of the progress that has been made in reviving the economy, rising gas prices threaten a full recovery, and continue to hurt hard-working American families.

Opening the Strategic Oil Reserve should be part of the President's "all of the above" energy policy. Opening the SOR will reduce speculation, increase the amount of oil on the market and reduce prices at the gas pump. I call upon the President to make the Strategic Oil Reserve supply available as soon as possible. We shouldn't take any options off the table when it comes to lowering gas prices."
