In response to the potential impact of escalating Middle East conflicts on global oil prices, the Biden administration is currently exploring a range of strategies. As of today, one key approach under consideration involves engaging with Saudi Arabia and domestic oil producers to increase oil supply.

Another option on the table is the utilization of the Strategic Petroleum Reserve. This reserve was significantly depleted during Russia's invasion of Ukraine, demonstrating its potential value in stabilizing energy markets during periods of geopolitical turmoil.

While the ongoing conflict in Israel has not yet caused a significant surge in oil prices, there are mounting concerns that an escalation could disrupt oil flow from Iran or other major regional producers in the Middle East.

Despite these concerns and previous fears that prices could exceed the $5 per gallon threshold reached in spring 2022, current U.S gasoline prices remain stable at $3.54 per gallon. The administration's proactive measures aim to ensure this stability continues, even as geopolitical tensions escalate.
