Sen. Dan Sullivan, R-Alaska, called on President Biden to produce American oil and gas on “One Nation.”
DAN SULLIVAN: The president and his team continue to demagogue on this issue. The reason we have high prices is not the war, the brutal war, in Ukraine. Energy prices in the United States began to skyrocket long before this war because of the policies of the administration I have just described. … You know, once you get an oil and gas lease, you have to do something called a “drill application”. These are permits to begin work, to drill, on federal lands. Normally, these are approved at the regional level in a state or a state director of a federal official.

Every drilling request in America has to be approved by headquarters in Washington, D.C., at the Department of Interior.”
