Rep. Cartwright Statement on the Boycott of Russian Oil

Washington, DC – Today, U.S. Representative Matt Cartwright (PA-08) made the following statement on the boycott of Russian oil: 

“I support the Administration’s decision to ban Russian oil. This will place a severe economic loss on the Russian government and hold Russia accountable by further isolating it from the world and leaving it weakened in every way. 

Russia’s aggression is already hurting American families at the gas pump, and while this decision will continue to have an impact on gas prices, I am supportive of a gas tax holiday to help ease the burden on the American people. 

I stand with the people of Ukraine in condemning this war and will continue to work hard to provide support to the brave Ukrainian people during this time.”
