Instead of a magic carpet ride to Saudi Arabia only to grovel and make a deal with the devil, President Biden should increase U.S. oil production so we can work back toward becoming oil-independent (“America needs its Gulf allies,” Web, June 6). We should not be begging our enemies for oil.

Biden’s plan to single-handedly save the planet from climate change is simply asinine. I seriously doubt that Saudi Arabia, Russia, China or Canada will stop drilling anytime soon. With surging gas prices, the push to give up fossil fuels for “clean” energy is putting many American households in the red. And “red” is exactly how America will be voting this November.
