The U.S. has led a global push to sanction Russia as a response to its invasion, upending supply chains, commodities markets and exacerbating inflationary pressures.

The meeting comes as the White House has publicly called on energy suppliers to step up production after a jump in prices, while criticizing executives who have said they are prioritizing investor returns over additional output. Last week, Biden also criticized gas companies for maintaining high prices at the pump even as oil receded from recent highs.

“Oil and gas companies shouldn’t pad their profits at the expense of hardworking Americans,” Biden said.
