Sean Hannity railed against President Biden for making foreign oil deals instead of drilling domestically because “we’ve got enough.” During his show Thursday night, Hannity asked “Why would we beg countries and kiss their ass when we don’t need their oil?”

Former Energy Secretary Rick Perry was a guest on the show, also commenting on Biden’s energy strategy. Hannity reported on the Biden administration begging for more foreign oil. National Security Agency Advisor Jake Sullivan sent out a statement on oil Wednesday morning.

“Higher gasoline costs, if left unchecked, risk harming the ongoing global recovery. The price of crude oil has been higher than it was at the end of 2019, before the onset of the pandemic,” Sullivan’s statement said. “While OPEC+ recently agreed to production increases, these increases will not fully offset previous production cuts that OPEC+ imposed during the pandemic until well into 2022. At a critical moment in the global recovery, this is simply not enough.”

However, Hannity’s response to solving the problem of higher gasoline costs lies within the US territory. “The obvious answer is put the keystone pipeline up, get it back up and running,” Hannity said. “Continue drilling.”

Meanwhile, US state officials have given the administration the green light to drill in their home states. “Governor Abbott said, ‘come back to Texas, let us drill again and will produce oil faster than you can use it,'” Hannity said. “Why don’t we go for the obvious answer? Why would we beg countries and kiss their as* when we don’t need their oil? We’ve got enough.”

“I can’t answer it,” Perry responded.

Oil giant Chevron made a huge announcement saying it will be closing its current global headquarters in San Ramon, California. Even more telling, its encouraging employees to move to Houston, Texas.

The San Francisco Gate reported “the oil company will cover relocation costs for those voluntarily leaving for the Texas office, which has been growing and employs nearly 6,000 people. Meanwhile, the San Ramon office buildings have experienced dwindling numbers in recent years.”

Although the company is not leaving the state completely, “company leadership has pushed for a permanent move to Texas in the past” adds SFGATE. Chevron, which has had “deep roots” in California going back to the late 1800s, will vacate its 100-acre campus in 2023.

The Wall Street Journal reports the business hopes to move into a smaller space in San Ramon, which will remain its headquarters. A company spokesperson told SFGATE “the current real estate market provides the opportunity to right-size our office space to meet the requirements of our headquarters-based employee population.”

“The move is expected to occur during the third quarter of 2023” they continued. “Chevron will remain headquartered in California, where the company has a 140-year history and operations and partnerships throughout the state.”

The SFGATE notes Chevron is one of “the East Bay’s legacy companies joining the trend” to move their headquarters out of the area in recent years. Tech companies such as startups like Coinbase to industry pioneers like Hewlett Packard and Oracle have all vacated, with Elon Musk having been “one particularly outspoken voice decrying California’s business conditions.”
