Thanks to Heather Cox Richardson:In fact, according to a piece by E. Rosalie in the newsletter Hoaxlines, U.S. production of crude oil during Biden’s first year was actually higher than it was in Trump’s first year. To encourage production, Biden’s officials have issued more permits on federal lands than were issued in the Trump administration’s first three years, at a pace that approaches that of George W. Bush’s administration.
Russia’s war on Ukraine has also driven up global oil prices, but the U.S. gets less than 2% of its oil from Russia.
What appears to be driving U.S. gas prices is the pressure investors are putting on oil companies, whose officers answer to their investors. Limited production creates higher prices that are driving record profits. In a March 2022 survey of 141 U.S. oil producers asking them why they were holding back production, 59% said they were under investor pressure. Only 6% blamed “government regulations” for their lack of increased production.
Ha! Good one. Merry Xmas.
Irony would have him wearing an NRA t shirt.
Men should be held much more accountable. Women don’t (usually) get pregnant on their own.
Gee, if only there was some way women could prevent becoming pregnant….. How about required vasectomies for all men til they can prove themselves responsible enough to have children. Then they can have them reversed. $10,000 rewards for reporting men than haven’t had them.
Satire about people who believe that?
Cut the dependance on gas.
