Last Wednesday he blamed high energy prices on oil companies not drilling enough.

But this past Sunday, at a campaign rally, President Joe Biden told a climate activist on he would not allow any new drilling in the United States.

“No more drilling. There is no more drilling,” Biden said, speaking to a climate activist as he finished up a rally in New York for Gov. Kathy Hochul (D-NY). “I haven’t formed any new drilling.”

The president was responding to a young woman standing front and center held up a sign protesting Biden for allowing drilling on federal lands.

The activist complained that there is still offshore drilling in the Antarctic and off of the Gulf of Mexico.

“That was before I was president,” Biden said. “We’re trying to work on that — get that done.”

“We haven’t slowed them down at all. They should be drilling more than they’re doing now,” he said at a rally in New Mexico. “If they were drilling more, we’d have more relief at the pump.”

Here is President Biden telling oil U.S. oil companies that they need to drill more.

When he was running for president Biden promised voters that he would put an end to "fossil fuel" production.

On several occasions, climate activists cornered candidate Biden and he told them what he knew they wanted to hear.

Yet when the president is speaking to the nation as a whole he blames these same companies for not drilling enough and causing an energy crisis.

So what are American energy companies to do?

Producers of energy in states like Wyoming and Texas find themselves caught in the middle.

As it becomes more difficult to extract and refine energy in America the president and his administration are asking countries in the Middle East and South America to produce more energy and ship it to the United States.

Rather than listing to what the president is saying these companies are reacting to what the Biden administration is doing.

What they are doing has not been friendly to American energy production.
