During an interview with Bloomberg, Biden administration Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm laughed at questions about the energy crisis hurting many Americans, saying that the oil market was controlled by OPEC. In response, Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) educated her on the international oil market.
An interviewer for Bloomberg asked Granholm, “In Sturgis, Michigan, (gas) is $2.89 a gallon. I guess that’s better than in California. What is the Granholm plan to increase oil production in America?”
Granholm was unable to control her laughter at the thought of middle-class Americans struggling to afford the ability to even get to work, responding “Would that I had the magic wand on this. As you know, of course, oil is a global market. It is controlled by a cartel. That cartel is called OPEC. And they made a decision yesterday that they were not going to increase beyond what they were already planning.”
In response, Crenshaw tried to alleviate her ignorance, tweeting, “Our US Energy Secretary is a joke. And a liar. … No, prices are not controlled by OPEC.
They have influence, but then again SO DO WE. Our vast increase in production over the past decade drove prices down. All we have to do is get the government boot off the neck of US producers, and let them do their job.”
He added, “But instead, this incompetent administration has done the opposite. They’re (sic) canceled land leases and canceled pipelines. They’re threatening the energy sector with more regs and taxes, and you wonder why no one wants to invest in more production?”

The United States produces about half of the total of oil produced by every country in OPEC. The increase in relative oil production has largely been a result of fracking, which has driven down carbon emissions while being opposed by Democrats.
