Lack of Russian sanctions doing ‘very little’ for oil and gas industry: Energy expert

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is leading a coalition of states suing the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) over new oil and gas rules while blasting President Biden as having declared "war against fossil fuels."
Paxton issued a press release about the lawsuit against the EPA that 14 other states have signed onto, warning the federal regulations "will create a deliberate disadvantage to Texas and all states" involved in oil and gas production.
"At a time when American gas prices are skyrocketing at the pump, and the Russia-Ukraine conflict shows again the absolute need for energy independence, Biden chooses to go to war against fossil fuels," Paxton said in a press release obtained by FOX Business.
