The Biden Administration announced on Monday that it will consider shutting down a pipeline in Michigan.
Why it Matters: The announcement seems to be a reversal from previous statements made by White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki that the administration was not considering taking such action. In addition the news comes at a time when high energy prices have many observers worried about a potential strain on consumers.
The Details: The pipeline carries oil from Western Canada across the great lakes region. It’s potential cancellation would be seen as a victory for environmental groups while also likely causing an even greater increase in prices.
