Republicans and the White House are battling over whether President Obama deserves credit for oil and natural gas production that has surged in the last few years.
Many Republicans claim that Obama, who faces political headwinds over the botched ObamaCare rollout, is touting a U.S. success story he did nothing to enable.
“They looked at the numbers and they are trying to make good news out of anything nowadays, so they are going to try and take credit for this development, when we all know that this is not because of development on any federal lands,” Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) told The Hill on Thursday.
U.S. oil production is at its highest point in the last two decades, import reliance is dropping, and natural gas production is at record levels.
Republicans frequently point to data showing the surge has occurred largely on the strength of production from shale formations outside the regions that the Interior Department regulates.
