Obama would rather waste taxpayers money on failed Solynda loans than approve
real energy producing projects like Keystone and Anwar. Now the results of his
irresponsible decisions are harming all Americans! Enjoying "hope and
The dude doesn't work. He campaigns.We need a president who works.
if OBAMA had let us start drilling 4 years ago we would have NOT been in this
situation...actually if Carter had let us start but he stopped...clinton stopped
because he was trying to play 'kissy up' with the middle east (as we all know he
let sadam get away) we would of had our own oil, the democratic congress
wouldn't pass any bills when bush was president to let us drill, obama didn't
want us to drill so we would be dependent on the middle east. hello to those
whom voted obama in...are you happy for ALL the changes he gave us ? higher gas
prices, high unemployment, higher food costs, lost homes, lower morals in our
country because of his example...and now birth control. come on he is acting
like a socialistic leader. we need to drill and refine MORE of our own oil. it
is ready to be tapped !
I have a question for DJKIf we were to increase our oil drilling
400% here in the United States would it lower the price we pay at the pump? Yes
or No.If you answer Yes why would this in your opinion happen?My feeling is that our number one export last year 2011 was
gasoline,diesel fuel and aviation fuel and if that is the case I feel that any
excess oil or gasoline or diesel or aviation fuel would be shipped to whoever or
where ever would pay the most for it.Who would be the winner of this
extra production? The American public I do not think so.Would you believe
the oil companies or refining companies because they could sell it abroad for
more money than lowering the price here.
IRON ROD - You are absolutely correct. The spike in oil prices isn't
solely a supply and demand issue. A lot of it has to do with speculation. So,
instead of trying to pin the blame on the president, why don't we hold the
faceless "speculators" who hide in the shadows of wall street
accountable? Or the producers who export U.S. oil? If anyone, they're the ones
to blame, not the president. As for me, I ride the local fare-free
bus, carpool, and walk more in order to combat the high gas prices. It's much
more effective than complaining.
Drill here, drill now is what a lying Newt says along with Sandtorum rattling
off some more crap about the gas prices and their immediate fixes are lies
citizens. 3 big refineries closed on the east coast, reserves running over, and
we are presently selling 25% of all refined oil out of our country and they say
drill baby drill? C'mon you greedy theives, you know the oil companies are
taking this country for another ride to improve their own wealth and nothing
more, just continued greed and to try and make our current president look bad!
You know what that will not work this time, they and their pocket congressmen
will be responsible for holding the country expansion back by arbitarily raising
prices and the day will come as my daddy told me-what goes around comes around
50 years ago. Payola at it's best, thats what we have here!
The oil companies can drill here but that doesn't mean they'll sell it here
yea higher gas prices "hurt" Obama until the American public gets a
gander at who the Republican Party is putting forth as there candidate! At
which time gas prices could be $10 a gallon, Obama still gets re-elected!
Remember when GWB was president? His rich oil buddies where making hand over
fist dollars and he didn't nothing about it! We remember.
The guy is clearly in over his head.
What I was trying to say that it is an acknowledged published fact that our
number one export is energy in the form of gasoline,diesel fuel, and aviation
fuel.No matter how much oil we produce locally our local oil
companies will sell it to whoever in the world pays them the most.It
would be nice if there were a guarantee that a percentage of the local oil
produced or imported had to be used locally however that is not the case.In my humble opinion those who chanted "Drill Baby Drill" did
not realize that excess petroleum products would not be used to lower the price
of gas here in the United States rather would be sold on the open market across
the world.I do not understand what part of that is so difficult to
Amazing that gas near the Orlando Airport at Suncoast is $5.89 and still $2.99
at Costco in Lehi, UT. Why aren't consumers protected? Why are stations
allowed to raise prices on the whim of news stories? This may be one commodity
that needs federal or state regulation because it is a utility, and a necessity
I have one question for the many commentors on this web site and I would like to
read your responses. Should we still be subsidizing the oil companies?
@ ParkCityAggie Now there is something we have not heard in a long time. Bush
and his rich oil buddies. If that were true I would rather see the rich oil
buddies of Bush benefit than the Muslim brothers of Obama. Plays both ways.
A car is stalled with an empty fuel tank.Anybody thinking of putting
gas in the tank to fix it, doesn't know what he's talking about.Barrack Obama 2/23/12
