The White House announced President Biden will be traveling to Saudi Arabia in a few weeks. With gas prices near record levels, the president is looking for the Saudis to pump more oil.

  • Saudi Arabia can produce oil at a high capacity but also uses a lot, and there are varying opinions about whether the country can mitigate gas prices, according to Steven Cook, senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations.

  • President Biden has been speaking out on human rights issues in advance of the trip in an effort to balance values with the need for oil and security in the Middle East, he said.
