Scalise: Raid on Strategic Petroleum Reserve is Another Example of President Obama's Failed Energy Policies


Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Steve Scalise today issued the following statement after U.S. Energy Secretary Steven Chu announced that the U.S. will release 30 million barrels of oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve.

"The Obama Administration's reckless decision to raid the Strategic Petroleum Reserve is yet another example of the President's failed energy policy that has resulted in thousands of lost jobs and skyrocketing gas prices," Scalise said. "Rather than creating jobs by exploring for known reserves of American energy, the Obama Administration is raiding our "rainy day" supply of oil that should instead be reserved for national emergencies."
