The price of gas will either spike immediately after election day or Biden will drain the SPR completely and prices will skyrocket.
The Biden administration announced Monday that it is auctioning 10 million barrels of oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR) which it will deliver throughout November, according to a Department of Energy (DOE) notice of sale.
The DOE announced that it will extend the period in which it aims to sell 180 million barrels of crude oil by auctioning 10 million barrels from Sept. 19 to Sept. 27 and delivering the oil from Nov. 1. to Nov. 30, according to the notice. The deliveries of the reserves, which aim to bring down gas prices, will take place during the same month as the midterm elections that take place on Nov. 8.
White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said on Sept. 14 that gas prices had fallen for 90 straight days, touting Biden’s efforts to bring down prices at the pump after gas prices peaked at over $5 per gallon in June 2022. The White House is eager to continue lowering gas prices ahead of the midterm elections as it believes prices at the pump most directly affect voters’ everyday lives and their perception of the economy.

This is yet another issue for which idiot Biden should be impeached. I believe the goal is to totally eliminate all petroleum reserves so it isn’t there to use. Of course, the left doesn’t consider that fact their is no alternative, they just want to shift as much as possible to where THEY have THEIR investments.
Shouldn’t you be working instead of posting here?
It has had zero effect on the price of gas. The drop in gasoline prices is the result of demand restructuring pure and simple.
And when President Trump wanted to increase the reserves when oil was $24 a barrel, democrats blocked him. Now, after selling oil to China and other enemies making us less secure, idiot biden will spend upwards of $80 per barrel.
joe will deplete the oil reserves but not replenish them.
To do that would cause the price of oil to rise even faster than its going to after the midterms.
Meanwhile, take a lesson people.
Transportation workers can “go on strike” and leave you high and dry without a way to work.
EV chargers can be deactivated as Sweden is doing all over the entire country right now.
People can be ordered not to charge EVs at home when they are in CA, so that can spread, too.
Will life be limited to staying at home (except in emergencies) being cold in winter, hot in summer, eating low quality foods, etc?
Meanwhile the elites (top 1%) and their puppets in power (top 4%) live like kleptocrats on their superyatchts and islands, or in walled and guarded compounds.
Just so you know, this will never happen.
These elites can’t find trustworthy guards and maids and cooks who will not slit their throats in their sleep.
