What do you think about Trump’s comments regarding the Strategic Petroleum Reserves?

Trump release this statement twice on his website a few days ago, but both links appear to have been taken down since. I have included the original links (1, 2) as well as their corresponding archives using wayback machine (1, 2). The statement was:

So after 50 years of being virtually empty, I built up our oil reserves during my administration, and low energy prices, to 100% full. It’s called the Strategic National Reserves, and it hasn’t been full for many decades. In fact, it’s been mostly empty. It’s supposed to only be used for large-scale emergency or conflict. Now I see where Biden has just announced he’s going to take what we so carefully and magically built, and what will be a futile attempt to reduce oil and gasoline prices. They will soon bring it down to empty again. It just never ends!

For reference, Strategic Petroleum reserve levels according to wikipedia and the US Department of Energy.
