Biden Resumes Oil Drilling on Federal Land
Biden Resumes Oil Drilling on Federal Land

Under pressure from the high price of gasoline, the Biden administration has resumed leasing for oil and gas drilling on federal lands, according to a CNBC report.

The move comes amid growing pressure for the Biden administration to do more to lower gas prices, with Republicans in particular saying it should allow more drilling.

The announcement, however, is likely to rankle environmentalists. During the 2020 presidential campaign, Biden had urged a complete end to drilling for oil and gas on federal lands, but courts disagreed with his initial moratorium that he signed when he took office.
