In light of the Biden Administration’s decision to cancel the auctions of offshore leases in two regions of the Gulf of Mexico and one region in Alaska, CEA released a statement clarifying that this move is a “direct attack on America’s economy.”

American energy is being shipped to European allies that took far too aggressive steps to curb traditional fuels, which put them largely at the mercy of Russia’s whims.”
