Release of the United States Strategic Petroleum Reserves

Summary

Not only has the high international price caused an increase in the US trade deficit as a result of the ever increasing crude oil import bill, but it has also hit the US consumer in the form of higher fuel bills. Gasoline prices reached $4 a gallon on 9 June 2008, up by 28 percent from $3.119 a year earlier. Increasing gasoline and other fuel prices, as a result of an increase in crude oil prices, have made energy issues more prominent in this election than ever before. In regard to this, both the Presidential candidates have clearly defined how they intend to deal with the growing energy prices through their energy policies.
