BATON ROUGE, LA (March 8, 2022) -Today, President Joe Biden is expected to ban Russian oil, natural gas and coal imports to the US.
In response, Louisiana Oil & Gas Association President Mike Moncla released the following statement:
“Today’s ban on Russian energy imports is an important step in applying pressure on Russia’s aggression in Ukraine.
It’s clear that the Biden Administration hasn’t had domestic energy’s best interest in mind thus far.
Let’s not forget – the price of oil had doubled and the price of a gallon of gas had tripled before Russia invaded Ukraine’s sovereign borders.
That being said, today’s action is a positive step that Republicans and Democrats alike in Congress made possible.
Fighting against Russian aggression shouldn’t be a partisan issue. This is something that we can all come together on."
