The Biden administration is releasing oil from the nation's Strategic Petroleum Reserve in an effort to address rising gas prices ahead of the holiday season, the White House said in a statement Tuesday. Gas prices in the U.S. ahead of Thanksgiving are averaging $3.42 a gallon, the highest since 2014. The White House has attempted to address gas prices as concerns about inflation have increasingly become a criticism of Biden's presidency. Biden also asked the Federal Trade Commission last week to investigate what he described as "anti-consumer" behavior by oil and gas companies and whether it could have led to increased gas prices. Bush in 1991 released 17 million barrels in response to the Gulf War.

As president, Donald J. Trump was a media maximalist whose unavoidable-for-comment style helped generate saturation news coverage, for better or worse. President Biden has taken a stingier approach to his dealings with the press — and not all his allies believe it’s working out. After nine months in office, Mr. Biden has conducted roughly a dozen one-on-one interviews with major print and television news outlets. That compares with more than 50 for Mr. Trump, and more than 100 for Barack Obama, in the same period, according to West Wing record keepers. He has not sat for interviews with The Associated Press, The New York Times, Reuters, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal or USA Today.

President Joe Biden on Monday renominated Jerome Powell as Federal Reserve chairman, ending months of speculation over who would run the central bank for the next four years, the White House announced in a statement. "Chair Powell has provided steady leadership during an unprecedently challenging period, including the biggest economic downturn in modern history and attacks on the independence of the Federal Reserve," the statement read. Economists and policymakers had been speculating for months as to whether Biden would take the unusual step of choosing not to reappoint Powell to a second term (although Powell also succeeded a single-term Fed chair). The steady leadership of Chair Powell and the Federal Reserve helped ensure that America’s economy was able to recover from a once-in-a-generation health and economic crisis." In a statement, Powell said that what he characterized as “tough new rules” would restore public trust in the central bank’s actions.

2017 -- POWELL BECOMES FED CHAIRPresident Donald Trump jettisons bipartisan tradition and decides not to renominate Janet Yellen, a Democrat, as chair. 2018 -- TRUMP INSULTS BEGIN... AND NEVER ENDIn his first year as chair, Powell's Fed raises interest rates four times amid a strong economy and low unemployment. As Powell reiterates the Fed's independence, Trump publicly calls those at the Fed "boneheads," and "pathetic" and threatens to fire Powell. The Fed cuts interest rates three times in 2019 to forestall a slowdown fueled largely by the U.S.-China trade war. In December 2020, Powell's Fed sets a bar of "substantial further progress" toward its full employment and 2% average inflation goals before reducing its bond-buying program, a goal it met by early November this year.

But consumer costs rose the most in 31 years in October, thanks in big part to high gasoline prices. His “Whip Inflation Now,” campaign featuring WIN buttons, T-shirts and coffee cups, urged Americans to fight high fuel prices by carpooling and turning down thermostats. Oil prices jumped to $140 per barrel and pump prices to $4 a gallon during Republican George W. Bush's second term. "Gasoline prices are 34 cents higher than what can explained by crude oil prices."

The infrastructure law, which Congress passed with bipartisan support, allocates money to states through a combination of grant and formula funding. States can pick and choose how to spend funds from the formula, prioritizing whichever projects they desire. Money often goes to more traditional projects — such as expanding roadways to make room for more cars — that could undermine some of the Biden administration's goals on climate and equity. Still, not every state will share the Biden administration's goals on issues like racial equity. While it could make the state's application less competitive, DeSantis could decide not to prioritize equity or sustainability in Florida's grant proposals.

While taming inflation falls to the Fed, Mr. Biden has been suffering politically as prices rise for food, gas and airplane tickets. The Biden administration already has one vacant governor role to fill, and two more seats will open early next year, giving Mr. Biden room to appoint at least three of seven governors. But Republicans, who supported Mr. Powell when he was nominated as chair by Mr. Trump, are likely to vote to confirm him again. Moments after the nomination was made public, Senator Patrick J. Toomey, Republican of Pennsylvania, released a statement saying he would support Mr. Powell’s nomination. Plus, Mr. Powell is often lauded for his track record as chair, which has seen the central bank pursuing full employment with vigor.

Whether that will be enough to appease Mr. Powell’s critics remains to be seen. But Republicans, who supported Mr. Powell when he was nominated as chair by Mr. Trump, are likely to vote to confirm him again. Moments after the nomination was made public, Senator Patrick J. Toomey, Republican of Pennsylvania, released a statement saying he would support Mr. Powell’s nomination. As a result, the Fed may be left balancing its two key goals as it charts its future policy path. Mr. Powell is a Republican who was first appointed by President Barack Obama as a Fed governor, then elevated to chair by Mr. Trump, whose decision to replace Ms. Yellen as Fed chair upended a longstanding tradition in which presidents reappoint Fed chairs of the opposite party who had done a good job.

New York (CNN Business) President Joe Biden on Monday formally announced his intent to nominate Jerome Powell to serve as the chairman of the Federal Reserve for a second term and nominate Lael Brainard to serve as the Fed's vice chair. The White House cited Powell's "steady leadership" amid the economic turbulence of the pandemic as a reason for the decision. "After an atypically lengthy deliberation phase, the White House ultimately went with the safest choice," said Isaac Boltansky, director of policy research at BTIG,. Powell vs. BrainardBiden recently met with Powell and Brainard, a Federal Reserve governor, separately at the White House as he weighed his decision, CNN previously reported. "This is a good decision," former Dallas Fed President Richard Fisher told CNN.

New York (CNN Business) By choosing to stick with Jerome Powell, who Donald Trump selected to be Federal Reserve chairman in 2017, President Biden proved that he learned a valuable lesson from his former boss about continuity over partisan politics during challenging economic times. Just as Barack Obama stayed with Ben Bernanke in the immediate aftermath of the Great Recession, despite being nominated by George W. Bush, Biden recognized that it makes sense to keep Powell so he can remain in charge of managing the post-Covid recovery. Lael Brainard, a current Federal Reserve governor and former Treasury official in the Obama administration, was also considered to be a strong option to replace Powell as Fed chair. Biden nominated her instead to be the Fed's vice chair, potentially setting her up to take over the Fed in 2026 after Powell's second term, if he is approved by the Senate, expires. After all, Brainard is viewed, especially by progressive Democrats who oppose Powell , as someone who will focus more on issues like income inequality and climate change and not just the Fed's official mandates of maximum employment and price stability.

REUTERS/Brendan McDermidNEW YORK, Nov 22 (Reuters) - Biden's pick of Jerome Powell to continue as Federal Reserve Chair gives global investors stability and some predictability as the central bank prepares to taper its asset purchases and start hiking rates. Investors had grown nervous about Powell's reappointment, with some saying they'd expected it earlier in the calendar - as has been the case with prior chair announcements. Powell has done more than any recent Fed chair to cultivate relationships on Capitol Hill, meeting regularly with members of both parties. The Fed Chair nomination comes as Democrats try to push through a landmark social spending bill that is central to the administration's economic agenda.

MANAMA, Bahrain — The Biden administration is trying to convince its Arab allies that the United States, despite appearances to the contrary, is not fed up with the region and headed for the doors. It is a tough sell. At a meeting on Saturday in Bahrain that comes on the eve of global talks meant to rein in Iran’s nuclear ambitions, Defense Secretary Lloyd J. Austin III faced tough questions about how Arab allies were supposed to deal with the whiplash of an American national security policy that upends itself every four to eight years with a new president. With President Biden now trying to undo President Donald J. Trump’s own undoing of President Barack Obama’s Iran nuclear deal, some Arab allies expressed frustration that they were caught in the middle and must go their own way. The United Arab Emirates, for instance, is taking steps to de-escalate its own tensions with Tehran, after years of striking a harsher tone.
