HEAT Leaders to Biden: Wake Up and Fix Your Self-Made Diesel Shortage

Today, House Republican Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) and HEAT Co-Chairs Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-S.C.) and Rep. Markwayne Mullin (R-Okla.) released the following joint statement about the impending diesel fuel shortage facing the United States:

“Our economy runs on diesel fuel, and the historically low supply of diesel reserves impacts our economy at every level. High diesel fuel prices especially hurt truckers and farmers who keep food on the shelves and our economy running, but the entire American economy will feel the ripple effects of a diesel shortage. When our economy is truly hit by a diesel scarcity, trucks and trains stop running to deliver commodities, regardless of prices or inflation, and this will be a dramatic shock to the American economy. Energy is the foundation of everything, and when energy prices increase and energy reliability is jeopardized, the entire economy suffers. We are calling on the President to wake up to this developing crisis, release his death grip on the oil and gas industry, and unleash American energy production now.”
