Governor Stitt Slams Biden Administration OPEC Request for More Oil

Governor Kevin Stitt

Governor Kevin Stitt released the following statement after the Biden administration's request to OPEC to increase oil production amid rising gas prices:

“It is disturbing that the Biden administration looks to foreign adversaries for help while punishing Oklahoma and other oil-producing states here at home. As governor, I take pride in Oklahoma’s status as a global leader in oil and gas production and our history of powering the world for generations. President Biden should grow America’s energy independence and support domestic oil and gas production rather than turning his back on hardworking Oklahomans.”
