Enjoy your tax break! While my billionaire friends and I at OPEC, the Middle East, Netanyahu, Putin, Kim Jong-Un, Xi Jinping, the Sadi Prince, and Jared Kushner make money off your back. I also informed all of my billionaire cabinet members that I would be doing this so they could invest in oil to become even richer without paying taxes so you could make them richer have a happy summer. Thanks again, Donald Trump. PS isn't that the way it works? Brilliant."believe me" "incredible," "Winning", "historic," "we're going to round you all up in a nice humane and squeeze everything out of you that we can. this is the way I am   making America great for billionaires again.

You forgot The Canadian government wants to keep millions of barrels inside the ground in the third largest Reserves in the world.

All it is ,is a RIPOFF> there is no need to charge $70 a barrel for oil. $50- %60 is more than enough. You are just going to kill the ecomony if oil prices are not rolled back.

Tell that to opec. They are not pumping oil on purpose otherwise the price per barrel would be around 20usd
Adam Smith (15 days ago)
Cost of producing a barrel is around $50-$60 a barrel, the price is not outrageous until it hits over $100 which I don't think will happen since the US is a big oil producer now unlike in 2008 when we bought every drop of oil from OPEC.

GPO u want oil at 20$ per barrel means cheaper than subway sandwich,the cost of producing a barrel is above 20$, u r so stupid

Loooool CNN Bullshit. China just cut its imports from Saudi Arabia by 40% for the second month in a row. Costing Saudi a huge loss. Why? Because they claim the hike is "unjustified" . They know Saudis ambitious plans need funding and their failing wars in Yemen need funding. So Saudi decides to screw the whole planet for threir own games. But that God for the Chinese who are so logical.

It's because capitalist pigs are greedy for more money. I just watched the entire video. Let me rephrase what I said. It's because American capitalist pigs want oil hegemony. Fuck them.

Trump is cutting green energy, air and water pollution, and will end solar and wind power energy spending. He's also planning to get rid of the tax incentives to buy electric vehicles. Coincidence? I don't think so. With Trump and Republicans is drill, drill, drill. And the rest of us is cough, cough, can't breathe.

Adam Smith oh okay Adam. Thanks for the reality check. Guess we should keep drinking the coolaid. Hey, how are all those hurricanes affecting your country? How are heat waves and cold snaps working out? Harvey 2017 (125bn) Katrina 2005 (129bn), Maria 2017 (90bn), sandy 2012(65bn) Irma 2017(50bn) etc etc... Statistically aggressive hurricanes are more prominent than ever. What about the cost of war to secure this energy? 4.8 trillion for Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq. The current wars are being paid on borrowed moneys. Some estimates project interest at 7.9 trillion by 2053. If I'm such a moron, retard, then why doesn't this make sense to me when we could have pumped all of that money into a new energy economy and employ millions of Americans and be completed energy independent? Maybe you just aren't that smart enough to consider the bigger picture because you're just a puppet of the system....
Adam Smith (15 days ago)
Drill drill drill is why gas prices aren't at $5 a gallon retard. In fact the USA is now on track to out produce Saudi Arabia in late 2018 and beat Russia in 2019 becoming the world's largest producer of oil and it's all thanks to Obama not listening to morons like you.

Canada won't approve the electric car...many want to buy it..

The thing is, he's entirely right. You can either be smart, and adapt or continue griping about it and piss away all your hard earned money.

Joe Mitchell (17 days ago)
Google search algorithm probably lead you to conservative sites anyway. So all of those Faux News and Alex Jones headlines don't really count, do they? EVERYONE ELSE reported Trump's determination to stop the sanctions! It's not everyone else who's lying here...
Joe Mitchell (17 days ago)
Every headline reads Trump is stopping all the sanctions on Russia. How F N dare you sit here and bold face lie like a child and have the nerve to call me a child! Republicans these days really are deplorable...

Basic business. High demand, low supply...maximum profit. This is a big problem, and they really should stop dramatically increasing the price. It's probably why these big oil companies are worried about the flood of electric cars being adopted more as prices for these electric cars goes down and the cost of owning one goes down.
Patrick Reardon (17 days ago)
Great. Time to transition away from oil. We have the solutions now. Especially since solar is now cheaper than oil as an energy source.
Patrick Reardon (15 days ago)
Adam Smith okay Mr. generic. Keep on keeping on, and keep buying gasoline.
Adam Smith (15 days ago)
No we don't, while electrics have come a long way they still suffer from range and charging time. If we just develop better battery tech that lasts longer and takes less time to charge buying an electric would then be a no brainer (at least for standard cars and crossovers, trucks and larger SUVs will be gas based for a while)

Patrick Reardon. Mostly Natural Gas because coal is no longer efficient to use as fuel. Coal is used to make steel now. However, most mining is automated and those jobs are not coming back.
