    Didn't the Demx block new refineries that might have been built to handle the fracked stuff?

    You are conflating petroleum products with crude oil. The 20m figure includes bio ethanol, natural gas liquids, etc.

    There is more to petroleum than just “crude oil”. There are natural gas liquids (many millions of barrels per day) and bioethanol (although not a petroleum based product, it is included in petroleum products).

    We are conflating many issues. The point being made here is that refineries can produce more gasoline if it used the right mix of crude. This is independent of whether the US is energy independent. Thus, to maximize refinery throughput, it makes sense to export light crude and import heavy crude. Separately the US exports gasoline to many of the same countries it buys crude. Why? Because it is cheaper to ship gasoline overseas when pipelines to other parts of the US are either full or nonexistent.

    Assuming there were no constraints on the type of crude that refineries can take and assuming no logistical obstacles, the US has enough crude for its needs.

    The problem is Biden does not know what of the week it is on any given day.

    His admin. and Energy Sec Jennifer Granholm are all incompetent and do not understand (or care) re basic economics, the energy market or oil geopolitics.

    Ultimately the Biden plan is it is to bring the oil & gas industry to its knees while ushering in green new energy... overnight. The economy & the American people suffering through this transition be damned.

    Morons!

    When I go to my local regional airport and see 4 spaces open but reserved for electric cars only, I know this transition will take many, many years. In November, we will see that most Americans have no appetite for the transition.

    Don't you love being penalized by places like this when pulling up in a fossil fuel, also known as normal, vehicle and you are relegated to spots further away? Every shopping center, etc., is woke and on board or they will be canceled somehow.

    What frustrates me about that sort of situation is I TRY to park way the hell away...not so I can get exercise but so some numbnuts doesn't slam their door into whichever car I was driving that day. THEN...it never fails that I come out and someone chose to park right NEXT to me when there were a dozen or so spaces at a minimum closer to the door.

    Dont get me started on parking far away. Do it for my sled and to walk more... Like MB said, 12 spaces around me and the AH parks right next to me. Sometimes giving limited room to get back in my car! :angry:

    About to leave the office for the day.... have not heard or read any news.

    So, has Joe or anyone in his admin done ANYTHING positive today to fight inflation, help the economy or the American people?

    Or is it just a day Joe is just busy "acting" Presidential, publicly trashing the SCOTUS when given the opportunity and generally shuffling around the G 7 Summit?

    there is talk in Spain at the G7 of bumping up by 4x the size of the NATO rapid response team. That wont cost anything and will give our GIs a chance to meet some Lithuanian guys and gals who are combat ready.

    If Chance the Gardener gets his gas tax holiday how will we be able to keep our highway infrastructure up, given that we wont collect the taxes to pay for it for several months? Maybe the feds will print some more money and give it to the states to do the roads? Those guys are so creative. I used to think Biden was a half wit but his octane level is so low now I don't see how he can even get out of the garage.

    Hey, all you Deplorables !

    With skyrocketing gas prices, be grateful this admin. is seriously considering giving you Fed tax holiday crumbs for 3 months - a whopping of 18.5 cents savings per gallon!

    She went to school when biology was still a thing and apparently actually paid attention...or, alternately, she just knows she didn't have what Willie could offer.

    So this floozie testifies at the Jan 6th hearing saying she heard from someone else that Trump assaulted secret service agents while trying to grab the steering wheel of the beast. Is the beast a Toyota Corolla? Because that's about the only way I see this scenario happening. And the story is so bad that even liberal journalists have to report that the agents in question are willing to testify that her statements are completely false.

    Does this not just completely invalidate this stupid hearing?
