Low supplies drive pump hike

May 30, 2014

Oil prices are back above $100 a barrel, and that will hit U.S. motorists at the gasoline pumps. A recent price increase, to $103.04 a barrel for benchmark U.S....

Ask yourself this question. Why is Obama not signing the Keystone pipeline permit? Is he (Obama) the president elected to protect Americans? He wants to give one billion dollars to beef up the Polish defenses. Yet the American people are nothing in his eyes. Why is that? Why did he release five top terrorists from GITMO?

back to hurricanes, a .01% rise in co2 is supoposed to make a hurricane worse when the hurricane is already at or near maximum levels of water in the air ? or this .01% rise is said to make the oceans warmer when if you added .01% water to a pot of boiling water on your stove you would not see anything of consequence ? We can say then that the democats minds are full of waste products from spending too much time over effluvia, overly concerned about waste. even too much hydrogen sulfide in a sewer plant is bad, it corrodes copper and can make you very sick and we would not consider sewage bad for the planet would we ? I mean if sewage is bad then humans are bad. well unless of course you are a librul then your waste is art ! hey libs, you dont save your effluvia do you ? i mean its your heritage and its art !

nathan, do not confuse the judeye types with facts. she just ignores them. liberals have a very small mind. now if i heard that guy on tv, don paul say tornadoes are NOT made worse by global warming and we have wind in them, then by logic neither would a hurricane as we have wind in them too. every way you look at it , climate change is junk science form sloppy thinkers, the democrats. why the democrats even needed an angola NY guy ,haier, i believe to invent air conditioning. if we waited for democrats to invent it, we would still be using punkas for cooling or blocks of ice or simply sweating , like in the good old days in the south, those libs ! thats why i call democrats stupid folks, they are.

The US has not seen a major hurricane, Category 3 or higher, in 3,100 days... since October 2005 when Wilma hit SW Florida. Only six Category 1 and 2 hurricanes have made landfall in the US. Sandy was not technically a hurricane...

"270 Dead People Voted in Nassau County, NY" "Burwell is one of about 6,100 deceased people still registered to vote in Nassau County, a Newsday computer analysis shows. The former Wantagh resident, who died at age 74, is also among roughly 270 people that records show voted in Nassau County after dying, a group that includes a man who voted 14 times since his death." and of course there is no voter fraud nor need for photo ID's is there.

so hadenough, why are business people bidding up the price of oil ? This is hard for the stupid liberals to understand. these guys know that oil is NOT replaceable for modern civilization. they know, even if the stupid liberals wont admit it, that all sorts of chemicals are made from oil. not to mention its transportation uses. it aint greed, its science. something the liberals lack. what kind of mind do liberals have when you see them holding signs saying greed is bad, save the planet and other nonsense ? even the facts i post here are mocked. libs have no minds.

hey hadenough, you are more correct than you imagine. we were supposed to run out of oil, a fossil fuel you know. the only thing fossilized is the liberals thinking. but back to trucks, if you want to haul weight, you need size and that means weight or mass. think thats a corporate thing ? No it aint. look at an elephant vs even a horse. who can do the most work and move the most weight, duh, its the elephant.look at the machines that move large anounts of weight at one time. they are massive and get poor mileage.how do i know this ? My friends and i do logging for fun. a tree 40 inches diameter when freshly cut needs a big tractor to move it. look at the skidder machines and see how they are built, mass and a lot of it.big machines get poor milesge. look at a jet plane, 1000s of gallons of diesel up in smoke a flight. thats why the WTC fell down, so much heat from the fuel. this is not a sting, but facts.

the libs like high prices. why ? it makes green energy more liable to compete. green is unreliable and expensive . classic trademark of a liberal, like our teacher salaries in NY. so when oil is cheap, the libs have fits. the libs always want expensive energy. that is called an uptick in the economy. never mind that even PBS says all green energy MUST have a thermal backup. even the fact checker judeye misses that one. funny thing, i can remember 17 cents a gallon gas.and a booming economy. now we have 3.80 or so a slugggish economy and the libs are saying what a success that is ! those libs ever wrong.

Ask yourself this question. Where are the facts coming from? Washington? Wall Street? OIl companies? Fact is that at present we have the largest supply of oil reserves than at any time in history. The largest oil deposit exceeding that of Saudi Arabia was found in Texas. There is no oil shortage for Americans. It is the futures buyers bumping up the price for profit. Capitalism at its finest. Washington has not stepped in. To keep the prices low but it has not. The Keystone pipeline will not be signed by the president. Why? The use of oil has dropped dramatically in Afghanistan which would lead to an excess in America but the prices keep rising. This is a concerted effort to keep prices high. But when you have your leaders travelling doing nothing for the people he swore to protect this is the result. Do you see automakers making compact pick up trucks? No. Large six liter engines getting 15 mpg is the norm and the vehicles are getting bigger rather than smaller.

more for stupid judeye and christopher, keep our troops out of harms way they say. as if the military was a social club. it is killing machine. so we can export natural gas and crude oil to offset russias influnce and even roil OPEC. All of this escapes the limited mentality of the liberals. i know of no polite way to say this. you libs are utterly stupid people ! yes ! hydrocarbons , a guy invention are the rulers of the world. we can have africa where they use wood and strip the forests bare and then watch the dust storms. oil and gas are needed. we cant grow energy fats enough and nuclear power scares people. nukes dont meake chemicals and we need chemicals. that you libs NEVER, BUT , NEVER answer my chemical queries tell me you dont know a blessed thing about anything science wise.

we are quoting cowboys and farmers now ! lets see judeye, farmers use diesel fuel in large quantities, natural gas to dry the wheat . ammonium nitrate and other nitrogen products. all from mighty petrochem and all done by guy scientists. so fritz habers process feeds half the world. hydrocarbons are indispensible to life. america was gren energy based and that was abandoned as green energy was insufficient. i have posted this many times. yo miss it or ignore it again and again, you will give us starvation judeye. JUDEYE, WHY DO IGNORE FACTS FROM HISTORY, FACTS FROM SCIENCE ?

Pssst Judeye there are already economic benefits and taxes being generated even without the northern section being built. Stop reading those extreme wacko publications for once. How about you take a look at the ijreview and look over the 25 charts posted on their website?(many of which are from NOAA)

molre for stupid judeye, the pipeline could leak ! oh my gosh, thats the end of the world! thats whta you libs said about the alsakan pipeline and no end of the world disaster happened. so judeye, why do you ignore all my posts, my frequent BTu questions etc. You have no logic at all. the argument that co2 has the same heat as water, the MAJOR green house gas on the planet and in the air sinks you wacky environmentalists on the spot.so judeye, i ask again, what will replace 18 millioin barrels of oil a day, 72 billion cubic feet a day of natural gas and a billion tons a coal a year ? You have NEVER ANSWERED THIS JUDEYE !

stupid judeye and her green house gas junk is at it again. co2 does not absorb heat. even if it were equal to water and it aint, the .01% rise in co2 is nothing to the heat workings of the planet. fact after fact i post for judeye and she misses them all. pipelines are the cheapest safest way to transport oil. the bakken crude is more flammable than most. so in a way we are going to give the LWV fits by the TRANSPORT of hazardous materials thru the area. chucky Shumer said 14 RRs a day of > 100 tanker cars of bakken crude travel on the RR tracks in Dunkirk. hey LWV, are ya worried about that ? crude is a world thing now and christopher being parochial wants it only in america. hey paul, std oil exported much of its oil. the industry is preserving its heritage, like the libs are wont to do !

NO oil for the USA...NO taxes for the USA...FEW JOBS (last report was 35 permanent jobs)...oh but..

"Oil sands crude emits about 17% more greenhouse gases than traditional oil, according to the U.S. State Department, largely due to the heat it takes to separate the oil from the sand."

It will greatly harm our environment including emitting more greenhouse gases which we MUST reduce for the protection of the planet.

"Opposition to it gained a foothold first in Nebraska, where farmers raised concerns that a pipeline leak could seep into the Ogallala Aquifer, which supplies drinking water to the Great Plains and irrigation for a third of the nation's farmlands"

Cowboys and farmers have joined environmentalists to say NO to the pipeline for many reasons.

Brings NO oil to us...we will collect NO taxes...No jobs...but we will get all the dirt..the gases...the harm.

And anyone supports this pipeline...WHY????

"A very substantial supply of it could come from Canada, through the proposed Keystone XL pipeline."

Oh Where oh Where Do you get your information?

FACTCHECK..."Keystone XL will not bring any more oil into the United State for decades to come....Keystone XL would divert Canadian oil from refineries in the Midwest to the Gulf Coast where it can be refined and exported. Many of these refineries are in free trade zones where oil may be exported to international buyers without paying U.S. taxes. "

"In fact, TransCanada refused to support a requirement that oil on Keystone XL be used in the United States in a recent Congressional hearing. Earlier this month, Representative Edward Markey asked TransCanada’s President Alex Pourbaix to support a condition that would require the oil on Keystone XL to be used in the United States. Mr. Pourbaix refused, saying that a requirement to keep oil on Keystone XL in the United States would cause refineries to back out of thei

We already are consuming tar sand oils from Canada but without the pipeline the delivery process is slow and more dangerous. There is currently a big shortage of rail cars. Sure lets stop exporting oil,we need to have the dollar sink lower,smart move.
