Why does our nation keep having high fuel prices, especially in the last 10 years? It all comes down to the Environmental Protection Agency(EPA) over the last 50 years! If we dig deep enough into why our nation has to send oil to other nations like our enemy, Venezuela, to be refined, we can find that our nation has not built a new oil refinery in over 50 years and we have had about 100 closed! Just this one factor alone adds to the cost per gallon of fuel due to having to ship it to another nation to have it refined them shipped back to our nation. I am just curious as to how many people would rather pay $1.50 per gallon for gasoline, then the high price now, when we could build more oil refineries and drill here in our nation where more oil lies waiting to be extracted then the entire world has on hand?
Yes, the United States has well over 4 trillion Barrels of oil sitting in the ground! This is not a phony or dream statement, it is VERY true, our nation, the United States, holds 7 times the amount of oil then Saudi Arabia has! That is not just what I have dug up over the last 20 years of investigation, that is what the CEO of Shell Oil Company stated on Fox Business. I have found that the oil shale in 3 states alone amounts to close to 2 trillion barrels of oil, then we have to add the 800 billion plus barrels of oil in North Dakota and Montana. This does not include the unknown vast amounts in the Gulf of Mexico nor does it take into consideration the vast amounts of unknown amounts along the East and West Coast of our nation, I am very sorry, but I forgot to include the Billions of barrels in Anwar and vast amounts of unknown amounts of oil in the Arctic Circle that our nation has yet to explore! Given all these areas of Oil and we can come up with a total of over 4 trillion barrels of Oil that our nation can extract at least half of or some 2 trillion barrels of oil that OUR nation has ready to be extracted!
I had to wonder just why did Obama stop the Keystone XL Pipeline? I got so interested that I contacted a few people that worked with Trans Canada, the company that has the project to build that pipeline and keep the thousands of miles of pipelines they already have within the United States. I found that they had passed all the environmental requirements and all the other permits and paperwork they needed, the only thing that has held them up was a “Presidential Permit”, “Obama’S” okay! Here is the President of the United States stopping a pipeline that can bring crude oil to our nation at around $50.00 a barrel and yet he turns it down? Why? Well it can be explained very simple, his Energy secretary, Stephen Chu does not like oil, coal, or Natural Gas. Stephen Chu stated when he was given his office that, “We need to pay the same amount for gasoline as Europe does.” Why would anyone have such a bad idea of our gasoline prices when they are SUPPOSED to help the people of the United States? It all comes back to President Obama.
Our President made a statement about electricity that few ever publicized, Obama stated, “You will see electricity prices necessarily ‘skyrocket’.” Why did he make such a crucial statement? To understand this, one just has to look at whom Obama had placed as his “Green Jobs Czar”, the one and only Van Jones, a Communist Party member and so proud of his membership that he boasted about it. Why? Once again it goes back to Obama, Obama does not like the use of Coal, Natural Gas, and Oil. Obama has the Naive idea that our nation does NOT need the use of these resources, Obama has the idea that his “Green Energy Czar”, Van Jones, a Known communist had the direction Obama liked more then allowing our people to retrieve the resources our nation has more of then the entire world has on hand. It is a very political and determined Obama that has caused the high fuel prices.
Let me show you just how this drilling all over would help, one company that was ready to drill in Utah was stopped by Obama, this company, of which I have lost the name of, has made the statement that they could extract oil from the Utah find for as little as $10 a barrel! If we would be able to get oil that cheap, it would cripple the middle east since they could not sell oil to the United States at that price. Could you think of what such cheap oil would do to the oil cartel? It would force them to drop their prices! But the best part of this would be that if our nation, the United States would begin to build just 50 brand new oil refineries, and be allowed to drill everywhere, we as a nation would NOT need a drop of oil from anyone in as little as 1 year after this began, not to mention the millions of jobs that would be developed by this oil boom!
All one has to do is look at North Dakota where they cannot keep up with the building of homes and have to bring house trailers to the area for people to live in while they work, they have to beg for truck drivers because they don’t have pipelines built to move the oil they have drilled for. This could happen all over our nation and within the next 10 years, our nation would NOT need one drop of oil from anyone! What is keeping this from happening? President Obama and his policies on energy that will hurt all those that voted for him! Let me say that again, Obama has hurt all those that voted for him with his energy policy, or lack thereof! If Obama did in fact want to help the people, he would allow drilling, the building of at least 50 new oil refineries, and begin now! But Obama does not care about those whom he hurts, he does not care that those whom need to have cheaper gasoline to work, are the very people he is hurting with HIS energy policies, or lack thereof.
Now let me go over what I have stated, our President, OBAMA does not care about the price we pay at the pump to go to the grocery, nor does he care about the rising cost of all products due to his lack of energy policy that would HELP the very people he claims he will help!! In closing I can safely state that if Obama wanted to really help the people, all he had to do is allow drilling and allow the building of new oil refineries. Just 50 new oil refineries and allowing the drilling all over would bring the price of gasoline down to about $1.50 a gallon within the next year! I worked offshore and I saw oil being brought from the ground. I saw rigs being built, drilling, then producing and they did that all within 6 months! Once again, I cannot state it enough, Obama is hurting the very people he says he wishes to help, Obama crushes the very people that voted for him by forcing them to have to buy high priced gasoline and groceries due to Obama’s non existent energy policies, or policies that have HURT the very people Obama keeps saying he will help! Think about that, Obama does not help those that voted for him by forcing them to accept his very bad energy policy that hurts the poor and middle class!!
