tout his administration’s “all of the above” energy policies.

The official says Obama will travel to Nevada, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Ohio from March 21-22.

The president’s trip includes a stop in Cushing, Okla., site of an oil storage hub with a glut of supply. The administration has suggested developing an Oklahoma-to-Texas pipeline to alleviate the oil bottleneck in Cushing.

Obama will also visit a solar facility in Nevada and an oil and gas field on public land in Carlsbad, New Mexico. He will wrap up his trip with remarks on energy at Ohio State University.

The official requested anonymity because the trip has not been officially announced.
