Biden speaks on actions the Biden administration is taking to strengthen energy security and lower costs in the Roosevelt Room of the White House. The administration plans to release 15 million barrels from U.S. emergency reserves, and may consider significantly more this winter, in an effort to ease high gasoline prices that have become a liability for Democrats in next month's midterm elections.
