WASHINGTON, Nov 4 (Reuters) - The White House on Thursday criticized a decision by top oil producers to keep oil output steady, saying OPEC and its allies appeared "unwilling" to use their power to help the global economic recovery.
"Our view is that the global recovery should not be imperiled by a mismatch between supply and demand," said a spokesperson for the White House's National Security Council. "OPEC+ seems unwilling to use the capacity and power it has now at this critical moment of global recovery for countries around the world." The spokesperson said the Biden administration will consider using its full range of tools to bolster energy market resilience. (Reporting by Trevor Hunnicutt)
