During an interview with Phoenix’s KTAR News 92.3’s “Arizona’s Morning News” on Thursday, Sen. Mark Kelly (D-AZ) said that if President Joe Biden increased domestic crude oil production, “that would lower the price” of gas.
Co-host Jayme West asked, “[D]o you really think that price gouging is to blame?”
Kelly responded, “It’s part of it. I mean, it could be. And we’re asking him to look at it. There [are] other things he can do as well.”
He added, “I mean, you could increase domestic production of crude oil. I mean, that’s one thing that would lower the price. It takes about 30 days, by the way, once production of crude increases for the price of gasoline to come down.”
