Unfortunately, this is not an April Fools joke. The administration is trying to quietly fuck American motorists.
“President Joe Biden’s budget framework released Monday appeared to suggest the federal government will not hold any offshore lease sales for at least another 18 months.”
“The Department of the Interior (DOI) projected offshore oil and gas lease revenues to decline from $395.5 million in fiscal year 2022 to just $25 million in 2023, a nearly 94% year-over-year decrease, according to the budget. The estimate, which marks a significant departure from U.S. energy policy stretching back years, was relegated to page 201 of the agency’s 208-page budget proposal.”
