In response to gas prices going up Joe Biden is looking to eliminate more supply of fuel.
Biden is reportedly looking to close another pipeline.
According to Townhall:
Winter is coming and gas prices are soaring but that hasn’t stopped the Biden administration from considering whether to close another pipeline.
News that the administration “was quietly studying the potential market impact of killing” Enbridge’s Line 5, which transports 540,000 barrels per day of light crude oil and natural gas liquids from Superior, Wisconsin, to Sarnia, Ontario, which is then refined into propane, was first reported by Politico and has led to fierce pushback from Republican lawmakers.
The pipeline’s closing has long been championed by Gov. Gretchen Whitmer over the potential for an oil spill. She’s called the 4.5-mile stretch in the Great Lakes a “ticking time bomb.”
In May, the Democrat ordered Enbridge to close the pipeline, making the issue an international problem between Canada and the U.S. after Enbridge refused.
Experts have said that an International treaty, the 1977 Transit Pipelines Treaty between the U.S. and Canada, binds the U.S. into keeping the pipeline operational. And lawmakers from the region have called the line lifeblood for the region.
