    Drill baby drill ...

    ... and all we get is this lousy t-shirt.


    Gop-ers promised that 'drill baby drill' would lower gas prices for everyone ... and once again they were proven wrong.


     


    U.S. Seen as Biggest Oil Producer After Overtaking Saudi Arabia


     


    U.S. production of crude oil, along with liquids separated from natural gas, surpassed all other countries this year with daily output exceeding 11 million barrels in the first quarter, the bank said in a report today. The country became the world’s largest natural gas producer in 2010. The International Energy Agency said in June that the U.S. was the biggest producer of oil and natural gas liquids.

    They said oil prices would come down after we invaded Iraq as well.  They seem to be wrong about everything.

    Re: Drill baby drill ...

    Idiocy!   So...you prefer windmills and fairy dust for your energy needs, I take it?..


    The US oil and natural gas fracking boom , opposed at every step by the green energy Obama anti-free market zealots,  is the only thing that kept the pathetic Obama economy from totally tanking...


    Along with increased energy supplies comes growth in industry jobs.  According to a recent study by IHS, the unconventional oil and gas value chain supports more than 2.1 million jobs today, a figure forecast to rise to more than 3.3 million jobs in 2020 and 3.9 million by 2025. The oil and gas value chain’s contribution to U.S. GDP was more than $284 billion in 2012, and is on track to grow to $533 billion in 2025. IHS foresees the U.S. trade deficit reduced by more than $164 billion in 2020 thanks to unconventional production, equivalent to one-third of the current U.S. trade deficit.


    "The increases in American oil and natural gas production have not only led to local, regional, and national benefits in terms of jobs, economic growth, and government revenues, but these gains are having international impacts as well. Increased American production has bolstered economic competitiveness, offered greater flexibility in energy inputs including feedstock for U.S. manufacturing, and provided greater options for the U.S. to earn export revenue. By reducing reliance on energy imports, American oil and natural gas have enhanced national security and increased U.S. international political and economic leverage.


    As China, Russia, and the Middle East have illustrated, energy plays a critical role in foreign policy as well as domestic economic policy. And in a global economy where oil and natural gas play such a foundational role, the energy supply renaissance in the U.S. has indeed put our country in an enviable position. The U.S. has begun to experience some of these ripple effects as increased U.S. production has both increased the average American household income and improved our trade deficit."


    Domestic oil and gas production has driven gasoline imports to near zero, while the U.S. is churning out nearly 10 million barrels a day. Despite all this, there has been little relief at the pump due largely to factors outside America's control.

    Really? Who said that? 


    US energy prices are the lowest in the developed world in case you hadn't noticed.


    And aren't the Obamaphiles taking credit for our newly found status as an energy exporter? Exactly what did Obama and his supporters do that resulted in such a status.

    Our prices have always been lower then most of the world, this is and has been due to subsidies not increased production.

    What bullshiite.

    What subsidies? You mean the "loopholes" that all other corporations get? THe only thing oil companies get is the depletion allowance. And you think they just pass the savings on to consumers? I thought they were greedy oil companies. Nonsense, you are making stuff up.

    Other countries are more expensive because they don't have domestic oil sources and they have huge taxes.

    Subsidies? Are you referring to real subsidies such as those that support the ethanol industry or are you referring to legitimate tax write offs for the costs incurred from exploration, development, and the like?

Or 120 in places like Arizona. Eh....so your clothes are soaking wet from sweating through them...at least your saving some oil...I'm sure your co-workers won't mind your BO.

    How much gasoline does the United States consume?

    In 2013, about 134.51 billion gallons (or 3.20 billion barrels) of gasoline were consumed in the United States, a daily average of about 368.51 million gallons (or 8.77 million barrels). This was about 6% less than the record high of about 142.35 billion gallons (or 3.39 billion barrels) consumed in 2007.

    we are not cutting checks to oil companies. That. Had been disproven countless times. Progressive talking point is all it is.


    the costs breakdown something like this (per gallon):


    crude: 2.61


    refine: .29


    Distribution .33


    fed tax: 18.4


    state: .23


    spill fee: .024


    total: 3.88 per gallon cost.


    Taxation at the pump is worth considering. Combined state and fed is in the vicinity of 50 cents. Mass just raised it last year by3 cents to 23 cents per gallon.  Massachusetts slide all politicians want to tie it to inflation.


    now, that tells you two things: the mass politicians don't want to be held accountable, and they see inflation rising dramatically in the near future.


    nice guys, these mass politicians.

    Our prices have always been lower then most of the world, this is and has been due to subsidies not increased production.



    What bullshiite.

    What subsidies? You mean the "loopholes" that all other corporations get? THe only thing oil companies get is the depletion allowance. And you think they just pass the savings on to consumers? I thought they were greedy oil companies. Nonsense, you are making stuff up.

    Other countries are more expensive because they don't have domestic oil sources and they have huge taxes.



    Most other countries have big taxes on gas as they want to reduce consumption.  We're the only country that encourages consumption of gas.



    More bullshite. So I guess we should all walk to work? Ride our bikes to work? Sure, that works out well for people who live in the north when it's 10 degrees out in the winter. Or 120 in places like Arizona. Eh....so your clothes are soaking wet from sweating through them...at least your saving some oil...I'm sure your co-workers won't mind your BO.

     



    So the only options are to drive cars with low gas mileage and walk?



    Well, no....if I happen to live in or very near to a train that also happens to go to where I work then sure, that could be an option. But that isn't the case for most people. Most people have no choice to drive to work. And based on lifestyle and size of family not everyone can drive a Prius type car. A Prius isn't going to carry two kayaks, two mountain bikes, and all our camping gear when my wife and I go camping. A Prius isn't going to handle a family of six, where the four boys all play hockey and lacrosse. A Prius isn't going to be practical enough for any homeowner that actually can do work around their home and doesn't rely on having others do it.

    Most other countries are socialist heck holes where the government decides what they will let you buy.

    High Road (sic): Compare gas prices in this country with those in countries that are not oil producers. Understand now?

    Dirtywaterlover: It was Democrats that said that the war was for oil. Remember?

    You're making my point.  How come we don't have a vehicle that can accommodate a family of six and get decent gas mileage?  We can build 300 hp cars for the masses but we can't build an SUV that gets 30 mpg at an affordable.  If we had such a vehicle, it would dominate sales in Europe and Japan.  But we don't. Even if you wanted such a vehicle, you could buy one because no one makes it.  If GM had such a vehicle, they wouldn't have needed to get bailed out.
