The White House noted the unwillingness of the United States to replenish the oil reserve with Russian oil

The US is not going to ensure the replenishment of its strategic oil reserves at the expense of Russian "black gold", even in the event of a cap on Russian oil prices. This was stated by the official representative of the US administration Karine Jean-Pierre.


Speaking at the briefing, the White House press secretary recalled that the import of Russian oil into the United States was banned. The corresponding decree was signed by US President Joe Biden in March 2022, imposing a ban on energy imports from Russia. Also, in accordance with this decree, new investments in the energy sector of the Russian economy were also prohibited.

Meanwhile, US gasoline prices remain very high by previous standards. Back in the spring of 2022, Biden was forced to make a statement that the country's leadership would send 1 million barrels of oil per day from the country's strategic oil reserve to ensure lower prices for petroleum products.

This decision by the head of the White House led to a reduction in the US strategic oil reserve to 434,1 million barrels, which was the lowest level since 1984. Then, in the fall, Biden announced that another 15 million barrels of oil from the reserve would be put up for sale. Thus, the strategic oil reserves fell to 389 million barrels.

At the same time, the Russian Federation has previously repeatedly stated that it will not sell its oil to those countries that join the so-called “price ceiling” for Russian energy resources. In this regard, many Western countries risk being left without access to Russian oil.

        It is profitable ... to forget about Guaido and negotiate, with Maduro, for example ... which they are doing now.
        So EVERYONE KNOWS that minke whales are extremely cynical and pragmatic guys, especially when they start to bake them!!!

            These are Washington's empty words to deceive American allies and "partners" in the West from the US in the competition for its own economy.

            A similar technique was used by Nathan Rothschild on the London Stock Exchange in 1815. after the defeat of Napoleon's troops in the battle with the British near Waterloo - and as a result of deceit, he bought up the entire British economy.

      They already take Russian oil, because it is of the highest quality, they just gave this oil a different name and sell it to third countries. Anyhow to say something "loud" and "resonant"

        The quality of oil ... it's not about whether others have oil that is not worse, only different, maybe in composition.
        Refineries process a mix / mixture of different varieties, because the technology is designed for a specific composition and a specific outgoing product, and there can be a lot of things.
        In general, they need either ours, heavy varieties, Iranian, Venezuelan ... most importantly, Schaub "suit sat", i.e. the price for raw materials !!!
        They sold off stocks at a low price because they were stockpiling during a period of lower prices! And now to buy and store, at a higher price, this is not enough health, i.e. dough for this case, for no reason, you can’t print it! Painfully, the amounts are large, they were not included in the budget.
        In general, their affairs and they will solve them, one way or another ... or at the expense of someone, as they like to do.

          The United States is waiting for the fall in oil prices to replenish its stock. Well, let them wait, the "waiters" are mattresses.

            At first they wanted to carry out a trick with a decrease in oil prices by agreeing with Saudi Arabia ... but something went wrong, then they connected "pocket" Europeans, in parallel, agreeing with Venezuela to increase oil production on its territory by American companies ... but on the oil market in the United States, the "light wedge" did not converge, so let's see what happens with these "waiters".

                When something does not go according to their plan for the amers, they begin to use fallback options that involve certain risks, they are used to walking along the "beaten path", but not this time.

            To say that minke whales are stupid ... in total, this is hardly the case in reality, but specifically with Guaido, you can’t call it otherwise ... they put their Wishlist ahead of common sense. And now I don’t WANT to turn on, but I MUST!

            Well, you can look at the graph. They said back in October that they would load at a price of 70-80, now the price of WTI is 77 dollars due to the fact that Urals is now trading at a price of 62 dollars. After the ceiling was introduced and after the news that OPEC + would keep production, the price of WTI fell from $82 to $77.
            In the end, they got the prices they wanted.

                Yes, just once again they got what they wanted. Even on such a minor issue as the price of oil at $70-80.

                If Xi and the Arabs fail to agree in the coming days to switch to paying in their own currency instead of dollars, then everything will be clear.

                The reluctance of the United States to buy Russian oil is understandable, because RUSSIA has stated that it will not sell to them (the signatories). But the US really wants to look like a winner in this case.

                  How will the minke whales do it?

          Wrong. They sold part of their reserves at a price of 100-140 dollars to Europe and Asia, and now they will collect on their market due to artificially cheap oil at a price of 70-80 dollars.

    Well, smart asses will not be left without Russian oil! Not just because Bulgaria was allowed to trade with Russia. Bulgarian Urals oil will soon be on the market. It will be much better and better quality Russian and, most importantly, democratic!

    Yeah, to hell with them...
    The desire to gradually limit trade with the West in gas and oil has not disappeared so far: after the gas pipelines were blown up, after the price ceilings, after the frankly cynical trampling of Russian sovereignty on all world platforms?!
    For what preferences, actually? What do we buy today in the West, what we cannot buy in the East, or, FINALLY, by breaking the faces and replanting these mediocre leaders and the managers appointed by them, who are incapable of doing anything, to do at home in conditions of practically free energy and wandering around in search of normal ( worthy, intellectual) work of millions of free people?

    Although Biden signed the decree, but according to foreign media, the Americans continued to buy Russian oil, though not in the same quantity as before.
    many Western countries risk being left without access to Russian oil.
    And these are their problems, which they created for themselves. The Arabs have officially declared that they will not be able to technically replace Russian oil in Europe in the near future. Therefore, the Germans courted Qatar in vain.

    They will find a way to buy Russian oil.
    Announce that they are buying Kazakh, Azerbaijani, Turkmen, etc.
    And they will make the face a brick - we don’t buy Russian.

    It is imperative to replenish the US strategic oil reserve, otherwise they will not be able to fight the Russian aggressor in full force. I think that Russian oil companies will cope with this task to their detriment.
