The Foreign Policy of Gas

It is not yet entirely clear for me if the US new sanctions on Russia, the Nord Stream 2 project, and all the ensuing spats between Europeans and Americans, are about gas, defense & foreign policy, or about a larger autonomy of the Europeans, not entirely approved by the US. Somehow paradoxically, the Western Europeans countries, Germany first, could prefer to be dependent on the Russian gas rather than on the American LNG. Understandably enough, this option is clear anathema for the former Soviet Eastern European satellites.
