The Keystone XL Pipeline – which was set to carry oil from the Canadian province of Alberta into the U.S. – had all construction halted by the developer last month (June); and now, in mid-July, across the nation, consumers are paying more at the pump:
That’s Congressman Mike Rogers, whom we spoke with on Wednesday, regarding the huge impact this will no doubt have on America being “energy independent”:
President Biden’s decision to cancel the permit to allow that project to cross over the border from Canada came over the objections of U.S. lawmakers who said the project would create huge numbers of jobs for American workers. The Biden administration meanwhile waived sanctions on the Nord Stream 2 project – a Russian pipeline that’ll be delivering gas to Germany.
President Donald Trump had given new life to Keystone XL in 2017 – after President Obama nixed the idea in 2015.
Other topics during our time with Congressman Rogers included the overall outlook of the Biden administration, the crisis at the border and second amendment rights to name just a few.
We’ll have more from that discussion in upcoming newscasts.
