The White House urges “OPEC +” to pump more oil supplies


The White House said Tuesday that it hopes that the member countries of the “OPEC +” group will decide to release supplies of oil to meet demand when it meets this week, adding that it is frustrating that oil prices fall without a similar drop in gasoline prices at gas stations.
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said at a press briefing, “Yes, we’re disappointed. We’re disappointed because you’ve seen a drop in oil prices and you haven’t seen a drop in gasoline prices.”She added that the White House is in regular contact with OPEC member countries and hopes that they will take action during its meeting on Wednesday.

“We hope they will release supplies to meet market demand,” said Psaki.
