TXOGA Comment on Biden Administration Call for FTC Investigation

November 17, 2021

The following can be attributed to Todd Staples, president of the Texas Oil and Gas Association:

“We must not forfeit energy freedom for energy dependence. We must continue to encourage smart, science-based policies that advocate for homegrown production, domestic jobs and economic advancement that benefits all Texans and every American. Unfortunately, we are feeling the repercussions of misguided policies that have encouraged foreign energy instead of encouraging American pipeline projects, domestic production and trade opportunities. The solution to higher energy prices is not to disrupt energy opportunities that have been a driver to more economic gains for our state and nation. All Americans should ask their elected officials to support the abundance of affordable, reliable energy available here at home. This ploy will not distract American consumers from failed policies.”
