Biden Looking to Address Oil Refinery Capacity
06.11.2022 By Ricardo Perez - NEWS

June 11, 2022 [BOE Report] – U.S. President Joe Biden is looking at ways to bring in more oil supplies amid rising energy costs, including working to address oil refinery capacity, White House economic adviser Cecelia Rouse said on Friday.

 

“He is looking for what he can do administratively, whether that’s working with oil companies and refineries asking them, ‘We recognize your back capacity challenges – what can we do to help you maintain your refining capacity and bring more oil online?’” Rouse, chair of the White House Council on Economic Advisers, said in an interview with CNN.

The White House is considering proposals that would tax oil and gas windfall profits, a U.S. official said last week. Rouse, asked about that tax and possibly lifting some China tariffs, confirmed that all options remained on the table.

“We want to do so in a way that is strategic and benefits the U.S. workers, U.S. businesses, U.S. economy writ large, but that is certainly on the table,” she said.

Some of the ideas require working with Congress, she said.29dk2902l
