Department of Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm laughed out loud Friday when asked about America’s plans to increase oil production and lower gas prices.

“That is hilarious,” Granholm said while laughing when asked by a Bloomberg anchor. “Would that I had the magic wand on this.”

Granholm then went on blame the OPEC “cartel” and their decision not to increase production despite pleas from the Biden administration.

The outreach to the oil industry has been awkward for Biden, who has pledged to move away from fossil fuels and has drawn criticism from the oil industry for pausing leases of federal land for oil and gas development and canceling the completion of the Keystone XL pipeline.
