    The United States has reportedly stopped asking Saudi Arabia to pump
    more oil to combat market disruption from Russia’s war with Ukraine as
    the relationship between the U.S. and the oil rich kingdom is said to
    have hit a new low.

    President Biden’s national security adviser Jake Sullivan brought up
    the 2018 killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi in a meeting with
    Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman which angered the crown prince
    to the point where he told Sullivan never to mention it again and to
    forget about Saudi Arabia increasing its oil production, according to a
    Wall Street Journal report on Wednesday.
