But he wasn’t done yet. He bragged about how brilliant his regime is for “selling” from the strategic oil reserve at $90 a barrel, then replenishing later at under $70 a barrel. This makes sense to most, but it’s technically not accurate. I won’t detail why that’s not true because it’s pretty dry stuff, but one thing this is very true is that Democrats blocked President Trump from replenishing our strategic oil reserves at $24 a barrel.
BIDEN: "By selling from the [oil reserve] at the higher price of $90 earlier this year and then re-filling it in the future at a lower price around $70 will actually make money."

By itself, the energy issue could send us back to the economic hardships of the Carter years. With everything happening now, this is just another piece of the puzzle that could collapse our economy altogether.
