    We are getting "Royally Screwed".........

    I'm highly pizzed. I just paid 4 dollars a gallon for gas. Having worked in the oil fields in Texas a big part of my life, I know how we're getting screwed. The U.S. has the largest oil producing capability in the World. We have enough oil to supply every Nation on Earth. But, here we are buying oil from Russia. We sit here paying out the azz for gasoline, while living in the most oil rich Nation in the World. Biden has shut down drilling on Federal land, restricted off shore drilling, and banned fracking. Isn't it funny that when I first started roughnecking in the 60's, we fracked wells all the time. Fracking opens up the formation to let more oil in. We have been fracking wells for 75 years. But, when Obama was President, it started causing earthquakes......bullshet. Biden stopped the Pipeline to Canada because of environmental hazards.....bullshet. This Country has thousands and thousands of miles of pipelines on ground and underground. No problem until the Idiot Democrats took over. Our Government is kissing the azz of select people and Countries at our expense. The Government is trying to take over everything that affects our very existence. I think it's time America pulls it's head out of it's azz, before it's too late......just saying....

    Another example of Biden's unofficial motto.
    "Put America Last".

    My car ran out of gas yesterday. I’m pretty sure it’s totaled.

    Talk about Gas lighting?
    Every maladie we are in can be directly attributed to liberal policy!

    And Sleepy Joe gave a speech blaming the oil companies for not taking advantage of all the land they have for wells, in order to maximize profits.

    America Last indeed.

    The regulations this admin. puts on those lands make the drilling unprofitable and the reason this admin. openly blames the oil co. for public consumption (propaganda)

    The amazing thing is that democrats don't want to hear one bad thing about Uncle Joe. They are blind. They must be.

    Most people don't know a damn thing about the oil industry in the U.S. Wonder why we buy oil from other Countries? Unions are partially the blame.At one time the Steel unions went on strike (early 70's I believe. When it was finally over, the price of steel all but doubled to compensate the higher wages. Steel is the backbone of the oilfield. Everything is made of steel. So, the oil companies had to raise the price of oil and gas to compensate for the high cost of drilling and completing a oil well. The same procedure in other oil Countries cost less than half as much so their oil is way cheaper. Also.....as was stated by our Brother, the regulations put down by Government regulators will only let a company produce so much oil or gas coming out of a well. In other words, if you have a well that can produce 200 barrels of oil daily, it is regulated to only produce 50 barrels, by the Government. So, the end result is......U.S. oil companies have to get more money per barrel in order to offset the continuing high labor, high material, and insane Government regulation. If they didn't, it would take years to just get back the cost of completing a new oil-well. And that's not counting the money spent on work-over rigs that come in and fix any problems that occur in the wells life span.......In other words, we in America, have out sourced ourselves.
