NEW YORK: Americans will see prices at the pump fall “before long,” president Joe Biden said after tapping United States oil reserves to ease price pressures and risk a feud with the Organisation of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (Opec).
In a tweet while the president was in Nantucket, he said the US effort to ease gasoline prices spanned the globe, but will soon reach stations across the US. “It will take time, but before long you should see the price of gas drop where you fill up your tank,” he said.
Biden announced this week that he’d release 50 million barrels of reserves – in addition to similar moves by China, Japan, India, South Korea and the United Kingdom – after Opec and its allies balked at raising production.
It marked an unprecedented coordinated effort to reduce prices and ease Opec’s stranglehold on supply.
The move didn’t spur a sharp fall in crude prices, but the decline came a few days later, when news of the Omicron variant of the coronavirus triggered a market selloff. West Texas Intermediate oil, the US benchmark crude price, closed 13% lower, the biggest drop since April 2020.
Opec and its allies are increasingly inclined to abandon a planned January production increase in the face of the virus and the release of crude, including from the US Strategic Petroleum Reserve, or SPR.
Biden is under domestic political pressure to ease inflation, and gas prices in particular, as Americans grapple with price spikes while the economy rebounds from the Covid-19 pandemic.
