White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki Wednesday unveiled the Biden administration’s future plans for the Keystone XL pipeline.

Biden scrapped the pipeline early in his presidency, arguing the U.S. should move away from the use of fossil fuels.

Gas prices are the highest they’ve been since the 2008 financial crisis, with the national gas price average reaching more than $4 per gallon – the highest average to date.

Despite the financial burden placed on Americans by skyrocketing energy prices, however, the Biden administration has no plans to restart the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline.

“If we’re trying to bring about more supply that does not address any problem,” Psaki said. “The pipeline is just a delivery mechanism – it’s not an oil field, so it does not provide more supply into the system.”

Directly asked if the White House would consider restarting construction on the K  Psaki said: “There’s no plans for that, and it would not address any of the problems we’re having currently.”

WIBC’s Rob Kendall argues, however, that building the Keystone XL pipeline was a no-brainer. He explains in the clip below.
