WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President Joe Biden on Monday will call on oil and gas companies to invest some of their record profits in lowering costs for American families, a White House official said.

“And if they don’t, he will call on Congress to consider requiring oil companies to pay tax penalties and face other restrictions,” the official said on condition of anonymity.
