By David Gordon, Elizabeth Rosenberg and Ellie Maruyama

Elizabeth Rosenberg, Senior Fellow and Director of the CNAS Energy, Economics, and Security (EES) Program; David Gordon, a CNAS Adjunct Senior Fellow; and Ellie Maruyama, an EES Research Associate, make the case that lifting the U.S. ban on exporting crude oil would “help make U.S. energy producers more nimble and the economy more resilient, while at the same time strengthening Washington’s influence and leverage around the world.”
