Objectivity 4.4 | Credibility 4.6 | Relevance 4.8

Joe Biden sent a letter to oil companies on Wednesday threatening to use the tools and “emergency authorities” of the federal government to make them increase oil output and lower gas prices. The letter was sent to oil companies including Shell, Exxon Mobil, BP, and Chevron. Many critics have noted that Biden has previously threatened to end the oil industry entirely before being forced to ask for its help after gas prices skyrocketed.
