Yeow!! This is an outrage! My SUV is sucking me dry! Obama should do something!! Drill, baby, drill!!
So, maybe outrage is the answer to all our problems?
No but we can stop the Obama policy of shutting down all the refineries that produce gasoline by enacting excessive EPA regulations.
Or we can start seizing and refining all the oil coming out of Alaska that is shipped down to South America and sold back to us at exorbitant rates. And tell Saudi Arabia, who produces 20% of the oil to go screw themselves when they insist that oil meet a minimum of $92 a barrel for they can meet their social requirements. And then we can seize all the money and wealth in bank accounts belonging to anyone from the Middle East.
Nantucket, does that mean just because the benefit will not be seen immediately that we should not do it? LLRAy that says North American not United States. So just because Mexico has increased its production that does not necessarily assist the US. And while the production of crude oil in the United States has gone up marginally—less than 2% per year—which is slower than world wide increases in production by almost a third.
The frog tale is an urban legend.
Froggy lost hid liddle flag in da hot wawa.
Why was it we never heard the conservatives blaming the Prez for high gas prices when they went through the roof in 2008?
Could it have something to do with the fact that in ’08 the President was a REPUBLICAN?
Are you saying that the new “Green Energy” source will be Frogs instead of Corn? Look out Kermit !!!
yes USA is exporting gasoline [ a refined product ] but is still importing oil drilling on fed lands down 11% but up on private lands that is why wti is $105.94 and brent is 123.74
Obama wants high energy prices. He only doesn’t want them going up as fast as they have. Why don’t you idiots go and find where he’s said so? (Carlson included) This cartoon is so idiotic, it’s jaw-dropping. I mean, he’s assuming that prices are going to drop, and they aren’t going to. They are going to keep going up, because liberals think that the prices set in Europe are where we ought to be.
Ahhhh…a collectivist who TRIES to bring reality, when he’s no doubt agreeing with the propaganda about Obama being responsible for the increase in oil production since he’s been in office. Thanks for pointing out that this moronic campaign point of Obama is impossible.
You’re in a dream world doc. Wake up!
And from this I suppose we’re to draw the conclusion that you are an oil lover? You like the pollution? You like the wars? You like the fact that it’s a finite resource? I won’t even go into your sacrosanct area (global climate change denial).
July 7, 2008, national average gasoline price $4.11 per gallon, oil at $147 per barrel. Go, BUSH!!
btw, U.S. production was lower than at any time under Obama.
It was higher under Bush, but it’s not up to the president, then or now, to set oil prices. It’s a world market plus here we have the wall street rich guys Speculating on oil! And don’t think that tar sand pipeline will help. We won’t see any of that!It’s going to go to Port Arthur, which has a tax free zone.making it extra cushy to export. It has already been said that This oil is destined to go to China.
august 2008, gas was $4.00 a gallon , feb. 2009 it was $1.80, do they expect us to believe they were loosing money in february and the wall sreet speculaters drive up yhe price on paper while exon picks up the oil in thier tankers then unloads it into thier tank farms and processes it in thier refineries, how much is that paper worth
^^The “oil price” dropped drastically because the oil companies had indeed reached to far, and the entire world economy was threatened before they backed off. The word is “cartels” not OPEC, nor “demand”. They are, like Nero, driven by power and greed. They don’t care who gets burned, as long as they come out on top, but even the 2008 situation woke them up. NOW, they’re after another Bush/Cheney type administration, that will again bow to their every demand.
I would support an Export Tax greater than the profits of oil products leaving the US.
It’s amazing that you actually seem to believe the things that come out of your mouth. Jeez Louise.
