    Correct. However he has cut incentives to develop production by limiting future oil leases in the Gulf and on federal lands. He threatens to investigate oil companies for price fixing and reduce allowable methane release from oil wells. He has repeatedly called for the elimination of gasoline powered cars and trucks (yes over time but it reduces incentives to explore), his administration has called for the vast increase in royalties from federal land production.
    If you have a clue, oil prices and gasoline prices are really a futures market. As you have said oil production world wide declined during Covid and is rebounding due to increased demand. You may not know but Ida hit significant refining hard in Louisiana. One refinery flooded and others were shut down for extended period cutting production by up to 750,000 barrels a day which impacted supply across the country. Also several refineries are in outage for winter work on gasoline production. Yet Biden ignores economic realities and again threatens to bring refiners to court.
    Oil companies are responsible to their share holders (much held in union and company pension funds) and can’t live in a liberal fantasyland. He’s reaping what he sowed

    thats not correct, and i can show you that it is incorrect. but before i do that, can we agree that cutting our oil production and usage is key to saving the earth?

    this is cutting production. so is pipeline restriction. pipelines take oil to refineries. stopping pipelines limits production.

    Excellent.
    Excellent
    Which in the long term increases energy independence. Oil fans are short term thinkers.
    Excellent.
    Simple remedy: stop polluting.
    Oil companies also have responsibility to not pollute the planet we all must share.

    why is it good to import oil and use it, if we are destroying the earth?

    your claim is "Biden deserves big congratulations for talking other countries, too, into tapping into strategic reserves"

    so we are paying other countries to provide oil that we burn to destroy the earth and thats good? why?

    Because that's what society is built upon right now. At the same time we must invest in the transformation.

    The left is ignorant of natural resources. Even their “green” energy must be harvested from the earth.

    so why is it better to buy foreign than domestic, if we must buy it? shoudlnt we, to the extent we still need fossil fuels, use domestic sources, given that we have enough to be energy independent?

    given that you are praising biden for pressuring other countries for opening up their reserves, so we can have foreign oil, do you think that oil is less pulluting? do they bring it to us on a magic carpet, which is powered by positive thoughts?

    under trump, in 2020, we were a net exporter of petroleum products for the first time since the 40's. how quickly do you think this will warm the globe such that a hurricane drowns black people?
