1:05 am
of arise and consumer prices that were announced in the past week or 2. this is the problem is not going. economy being driven by excessive demand is not excessively hot. wages are back to. ready beginning to slow down, the growth in wages is actually be celebrated since the 1st of the year. so it's not clear what they hope to achieve with these dramatic rate increases. it's much more about politics and economics at this point. you as president, engine oil companies to take action against soaring petrol prices saying they need to produce more petrol and diesel. jo buttons accuse major produces including exxon mobil and chevron of profiteering from the current process. white house correspondent, kimberly how kept reports. sticker shock at the pumps, as millions of americans fuel up for the summer vacation driving season. that's why president joe biden on wednesday, sent a letter to the 7 major

1:07 am
hasn't ruled out a surtax on those gains. he's asked his energy secretary to hold an emergency meeting with oil producer to market. we're not against profit. it's just that when you have 225 percent increase in profit year over year in q and quarter one, when it just tells you something else is going on. the oil companies blame biden for the problem, arguing his climate change agenda. bam, on federal land drilling and the cancellation of the keystone pipeline have led to oil refining stream biden, to release oil from the strategic petroleum reserve to bring down prices. it's a tool he's already used, but it's a temporary fix is simply an attempt to play for the voters to show that politicians are doing something about a market situation in which there's actually very little that they or anybody else to do. finance letter comes one day after announcing he'll meet with the saudi king next month to encourage his kingdom to also boost production. but the white house

1:09 am
start liquefying more at its 2 mediterranean plants. it'll trim just a few percent of the 40 percent of gas, the e u bies from russia. but if it's a quick fix, it's not going to store the whole thing. i mean, if you look at the stack up in the system on, it's fairly in digits i, it's something like 678 percent of what we are receiving. it's, it is a small step, but we need other steps. we didn't know exploration initial more infrastructure could be bit. israel had frozen gas exploration as it tried to meet renewable energy targets. but the search for alternatives to russian fuel. as off of these railey government to lucrative an opportunity to turn down, the e. u is also committed to moving away from fossil fuels. at the signing ceremony in cairo, the e u commission president suggested there was long term interest in partnering with countries to its south and east. it is for us,
