How is the White House addressing increasing fuel and energy prices for farmers?

Rising inflation is taking a toll on consumers across the U.S. including farmers, especially when it comes to fuel and energy prices.

Further down the road, Hochstein wants to work towards having enough oil and gas production to sustain economic growth in the United States and around the world and not be so dependent.
