Oklahoma Senator calls for halt to sending oil reserves to China

TULSA — American drivers continue to struggle with high gas prices as lawmakers bicker on what to do about it.

Senator James Lankford (R-OK) is in a group of lawmakers who introduced the No Emergency Crude Oil for Foreign Adversaries Act to ensure that reserves sold from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve are not exported to nations like China.

“While Oklahomans are forced by this Administration’s bad policies to pay more for gas and diesel, Biden continues to block US energy production,” said Sen. Lankford.

Lankford says we should put American families above other nations.

Senator Jim Inhofe is also among the group of lawmakers who support the block.

“I am continually disappointed with President Biden’s inability to lead and his plan to allow the export of Strategic Petroleum Reserve oil to China is yet another irresponsible decision on his part,” said Sen. Inhofe.
