Joe Biden's Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm Does Not Know How Many Barrels of Oil U.S. Uses per Day


President Joe Biden’s energy secretary, Jennifer Granholm, admitted Tuesday she did not know off the top of her head how many barrels of oil the United States economy consumes per day.

“I don’t have that number in front of me. I’m sorry,” she replied when asked about America’s daily oil consumption by CBS reporter Ed O’Keefe during the White House press briefing.

O’Keefe told Granholm the number was around 18 million and asked how Biden’s decision to release 50 million barrels of oil from the Strategic Oil Reserve would solve the problem of high gas prices.

Granholm said that Biden would release the oil from the Strategic Reserve over a period of weeks and that it would be “thoughtfully done” to lower prices.
