OPEC is only helping to accelerate their own demise… though they will make out like bandits in the short term.

How will the U. S. make up for the loss of the gas tax revenue that currently runs our governments, both state and federal? I'll hang up and listen for your answer.

hate to break it to you but oil will still be needed even if everyone had a electric car.

I have only explained this over a dozen times on this board that the Oil companies have moved on from depending solely on fuel production. Clueless morons like our President believes if he can stamp out fossil fuels and he will be a hero. Kinda like cutting off your head to spite your face. They make thousands of other products people use everyday besides fuels. One division makes only plastic pellets which are sold all over the world. Once received they are melted into whatever shape the buyer wants. Btw Marc please turn in your Mensa card. No one needs to make such a statement when we have the ability to be energy independent ourselves. SMH

Those pellets are simply the by-product of oil refinery… they are not the reason the oil is refined. Polystyrene & Polypropylene will be replaced… and quite frankly are already starting to be replaced by resins from renewables like corn (PLA) & canola (PHA). As oil refinery decreases, the cost advantages the petroleum based resins enjoy over renewables will evaporate. Quite honestly, it’s already happening.

We do not have the ability to be energy independent unless we ween ourselves off of fossil fuels. We consume almost 2x’s the petroleum we generate.

HMMM I seem to recall in 2017 or 2018 we were a net energy exporter.

Not exactly sure how that’s determined because of the incorporation of natural gas. As for crude, we have never exported more than we’ve imported.

I just know energy was more plentiful and less expensive under Trump - a businessman who got things done. Got all the way down to 99 cents here in the Memphis area.

Any response for making up the loss of gas tax revenues?

What idiot thought that releasing oil reserves on one of the biggest travel holidays of the year would actually do anything?

FOR A RAINY DAY

Sorry boys but this isn't "stupid, or moronic, or imbecilic" it's too complete and uniform in its destruction of infrastructure, destruction of strategic reserves, deliberate retirement of needed military equipment, destruction of border security, the breaking down of military morale and training, its abandonment of solid strategic foreign policy, the pissing off of our allies, the undermining of our financial security, and its attempts to break down local law enforcement, the destruction of education, hastening the breakdown of the family unit, destruction of the middle class, the corruption of election integrity, and its allowance of unmitigated propaganda and censorship in our press, to be the simple product of a senile and corrupt mind.

His whole administration is a well-orchestrated coup, seeking every advantage for the world's, and our, most dangerous adversary, while persistently pursuing an agenda of treason which boggles the mind in scope. The Biden administration may be the greatest threat to the future of the United States that we have ever faced. Why the Deep State doesn't recognize the threat is even more concerning. It can't logically be in their self-interest either. Every time I hear idiot, or stupid, or imbecile I want to scream. This depth of destruction is no accident or simply the byproduct of 1 senile president. It is an anti-American political machine funded by those who hate us and we all need to see it that way. All of us! Liberals and Conservatives alike have their futures threatened by this and we are the idiots, imbeciles, and morons if we don't take it all in grave seriousness!

The recognition of this is paramount prior to the midterms and Democrats and Republicans who have gone along with these policies and practices need to all be replaced as soon as possible.

You are simply clueless. You can continue to live in your bubble but I can assure you they will continue to use oil in products long after they stop producing fuel. That's why there is 26 miles of Chemical Plants in just one location near me and guess what boy wonder only a handful of them even manufacture fuel. Must be nice to live in a bubble and only believe what you can find on the internet.

The irony here is I have worked for two of the largest food packaging company in the world over the past 20 years, utilizing PS, PP, PET, PLA & increasingly PHA as it emerges as an green alternative. We were once owned by Amaco & Mobil and used the byproduct of the refined oil into various plastic resins. Polystyrene is made from benzine which is a byproduct of refining of oil into petroleum. Hell, I thought even those with the most rudimentary knowledge of plastics knew they were all largely derived from petroleum based resins. I suppose you should use the google and learn a little about what you proclaim to know… but I suppose living by 26 chemical plants either qualifies you as an expert… or an idiot.
