    The 1% will make lots of money, and that’s what really mattes. They are the Decent Americans. And they can afford homes that won’t be affected by global warming or pollution, and they can afford bottled water. So let’s get cracking. Obama must stop hindering this valuable project and put all his energy into moving it forward as quckly as possible.

    Most people forget that the company that pumps the oil out of the ground owns the oil, NOT the Government, so they can sell it to whoever they want, to whoever will give them the best price on the spot market!

    Since oil is a fungible commodity, any oil produced anywhere and sold anywhere will effect the overall world market price. The spot market simply adjusts for temporary local conditions.

    Of course, you do realize that eventually someone has to take delivery of the product. While I agree there are some abuses that should be better regulated, the commodity futures market does serve a function as risk mitigation for producers. If you think you’re just going to “corner the market” and own all the oil, you better have a big swimming pool in your backyard to store the stuff when the tankers start showing up.

    Warren Bettie’s oil Trains have crashed yet again. Seeing as Oil trains are more dangerous then a pipe line Warren has now invested in pipe line. So I see Obama approving the Pipe Line by the end of the year.
    We have only 1 advantage that has kept prices down on a world scale. That is oil is traded in American dollars. So the more that is piped out, that gets on the world market, the less it will cost us, no matter who buys it. And with the boom on private land right now we are barley keeping up. If only Obama would do things like lift the total “ban” from gulf coast and coastal drilling. Open back up Anware Alaska. Do that and drill HERE DRILL NOW! We could tell those in the Middle East to drink it! I also say we get out of the middle east and fight the corruption in Mexico. They have plenty of oil. And they would like us if we helped the corruption, unlike the Middle East. Of course that would also have to make pot legal. but that is another story.

    @Truist

    Factor in the fact oil is traded in american $ and Obama and the feds have been pumping funny money into the stock market on a monthly basis, and you get why it is taking more money for the same tank of gas. Obama will get his 5$ a gallon gas for our own good one way or another. He is already using the EPA to make coal and other american energy reserves more expensive. Obama just thinks he is the next prophet to fight the evil CO2 by making the American people pay for that sin.

    I’m not quite sure what a weekly report of import/export has to do with the trading of the out markets in the various world trading centers

    If it was not for the boom in oil on private land, just think as to what the unemployment would look like in the USA! We are already using the best looking U number Obama can, But the real unemployment and under employment numbers are past the Carter Years as a direct result of Obama policies. Bring back the Misery Index! Factor in jobs, price of gas, inflation, Obama’s approval, and you have the Carter years.

    Something is causing a spate of small earthquakes in Texas, and locals think they know the culprit: the controversial process of fracking.

    WHAT inflation?

    There is a larger than normal number of small quakes in California lately also.
    There is a very small possibility these have something to do with plate movement.
    Or it could be fracking causing a worldwide increase in fault movements, the long history of earthquates and fracking go back years while the history of earthquakes alone goes back billions of years.
    .
    But the evil oil companies use fracking so it is quite obviously causing every unexplained ill in the earth’s crust at this time in history.

    @Stipple

    I’m sure fracking is also responsible for the freezing cold we’ve been experiencing in the East this winter. Or is that global warming? I get them confused.

    @Godfreydaniel The former is what economists call “forward guidance” and the latter is “quantitative easing”.

    Move along, folks, nothing to see here. Just the “successful” working on more “success.”
