Higher gas prices anyway

Amid the angst of rising gasoline prices, at least two things seem clear.

One is that Senate Republicans are keeping billions in annual taxpayer subsidies flowing to Big Oil, never mind the record profits it currently is reaping off rising fuel prices. (The three biggest oil companies, for example, took home $80 billion in profits last year). The Senate proved its allegiance to the oil moguls with another filibuster-proof vote last week to end the $2.4 billion in subsidies to the top five oil companies, mainly because their campaign coffers depend heavily on oil lobbyists' money.

The second apparent feature of the energy-price dynamic is that rising oil and gas production in the United States, which has spurted to record levels under the Obama administration's tenure, has hit such a high level that energy industry analysts now see legitimate long-term prospects of energy independence from imported fossil fuels -- the grail of the "drill baby drill" crowd.

Tea party types, of course, haven't figured out how to reconcile the broader trends, or more specifically, why rising U.S. energy production isn't bringing down the cost of oil and gasoline. Their intellectual dilemma, of course, springs from the fact that they haven't accepted the financial reality that oil is an easily traded international commodity, which means its price is set on the world's commodities markets. So no matter where the oil is produced -- from domestic wells, or in Africa or the Middle East -- customers will pay the international per barrel prices. Raising domestic production won't change that equation.

American consumers are not helping the right-wing's myopia about how to bring down the price at the pump. They have simply begun coping with the market dynamic of rising gasoline prices by logically following market signals -- and consuming less gasoline per mile or per day. As the economy has recovered, they've been trading in their gas guzzlers and buying more fuel efficient vehicles, including hybrids and electric options. Others are rediscovering timeless virtues -- using public transportation more, and riding bicycles or walking more.

With a growing fracking industry and a dawning surfeit of natural gas from shale fields supplementing the oil industry's new drilling, consumers also will begin seeing the rise of a natural gas-or-propane infrastructure for broader vehicle use. That will further relieve demand-side pressure for oil, gasoline and diesel products.

To a point, these converging trends are all good -- so long as environmentally sound and fair-minded regulation over fracking protects vital water supplies from toxic fracking chemicals and hazardous methane contamination of water resources.

The missing focus in this emerging scenario is an emphasis on conservation, alternative vehicles and fair treatment to taxpayers who unreasonably are forced to subsidize Big Oil's mega profits. With barely 5 percent of the world's population and 2 percent of the world's known oil reserves, the United States cannot afford to use more than 20 percent of the world's oil. It will take a far more balanced approach to energy use to achieve a semblance of sustainable, affordable energy use.

OBOOB and the Democrappers are also keeping subsidies flowing to "big oil". OBOOB gets plenty of donations from "big oil" DUMB, DUMB, DUMB piece

So the dummycrats solution is to raise taxes on large oil companies so the cost of their product will increase and the end result will be higher gas prices. The CEO of Shell oil said they pay the same taxes as any other corporation. Using the word "subsidize" to describe taxes on oil companies is another liberal obama lie. What the author does not tell you is confiscation of profits from the oil companies was voted down in the dummycrat controlled Senate last week. Corporate profits are none of this foolish president's business. But of course this idiot of a president also thinks he has power over the Supreme Court. The obama media is lying to you.

President Gingrich (however unlikely) would take pro-drilling actions price-doubling President Obama hasn't taken to let more drilling be done. Increase supply and price eventually comes down from what it would otherwise be.

The fantasy of the writer : "One is that Senate Republicans are keeping billions in annual taxpayer subsidies flowing to Big Oil"

The reality : The oil companies get tax incentives just like every business. Maybe this writer does not know that Obamination and the mess media mislead and bamboozle others with the use of the word "subsidy" hoping they will believe the government is giving taxpayer dollars to the oil companies to produce gasoline.

Also, Obamination and the Demoncrats had control prior to the midterm elections and could have eliminated these misnamed "subsidies" if they really existed.

Obamination and the Lieberals in power are always looking for sheep to join the fold.

Isn't it funny, strange, despicable, how the author of the article fails to mention why oil production is spurting to record levels during his administration. I guess they want people to think you turn it on and off like a faucet. It's only up due to actions of the prior administration. The majority of the current growth is in the private property oil fields, not the government oil fields Obama is responsible for. Maybe the author is just as illinformed as the other people that don't know any better. Their mantra... If we say it enough times, people will believe it.

joneses said... "So the dummycrats solution is to raise taxes on large oil companies so the cost of their product will increase and the end result will be higher gas prices."

Here is a quote from someone that disagrees with you:

“I will tell you with $55 oil, we don’t need incentives to the oil and gas companies to explore. There are plenty of incentives. What we need is to put a strategy in place that will help this country over time become less dependent.” President George W. Bush 2005

BTW we have $100/barrel oil now and record profit for the oil companies. Elimination of subsidies is not a "tax increase".

The long-term trendline for oil prices is up and the only likely way for those prices to drop would be with a strong worldwide economic downturn that would reduce demand,at least temporarily. Rather than blaming politicians, maybe we should act responsibly and find ways to reduce our consumption.

We are the problem.

Blame the FED. They are printing the money right out of your pocket.

The writer : "never mind the record profits it currently is reaping off rising fuel prices."

Any company that has a record demand for its product will most likely have record profits - It's the American system. Those who have a Socialist mindset hate profits earned by others.

The profit margin under these "rising fuel prices" by Exon is currently 7.73%. If that doesn't seem excessive it is simply because it isn't. Exon made that billions by volume, NOT gouging.

Chet - the word dispicable describes the way the author of this article, whom you agree with, reports only half truths.

No one can look at big oil yet because they are trying to keep YOUR MAN from doing to healthcare what you just said he needed to do to big oil, nationalize it. Geez, you guys got it bad. Let's nationalize everything, that's your fix?

And, you didn't have to repeat that 3 times, if only I could have gotten a letter in edgewise to YOUR BIS A$$ WRITING.

Thanks for referring to me as all wise, but I really only deserve it when compared to you.

FPSE,

You are right about the Fed, their expansionary monetary and credit policies are driving up commodity prices and undermining the dollar. Their primary goal is to protect the banking system at all costs. They may bring down the country trying to save the 1%.

Fed policy only compounds the well depletion related supply problems.

Conservation is the unwanted path that will be forced upon us.

Sorry Chet, not a big fish at all, quite the opposite.

I don't want to privatize everything, I just want to get the government out of a lot of things.

I too would rather the people run things, but for a long time the government hasn't listened the will of the people. Example, any poll you look at, 60% of the people don't want Obamacare.

Please enlighten me in two things. Who profited and what did they profit from American Soldiers' blood? And what would we gain or learn from the subpoena of a big oil executive?

Chet, I do agree with you that we have fundamental differences. I would also rather have my right wing buddies lying to me as my president.

Obama stated he's "confident that the Supreme Court will not take what would be an unprecedented, extraordinary step of overturning a law that was passed by a strong majority of a democratically elected Congress." (code words for saying "you guys better vote the way I want you to") Despicable, again.

It wasn't passed by a strong majority. 34 democrats voted against it, and that was on Christmas eve (as I believe I'm correct), and Pelosi said we have to vote for the bill to see what is in the bill.?!? Now they have found numerous things wrong with it, and the CBO keeps finding clerical mistakes in it. And, the Supreme Court has been overturning acts of congress for 209 years! This all started with Marbury v. Madison in 1803 with Chief Justice John Marshall.

Surely a person that has a degree from the Harvard law school and taught constitutional law at the University of Chicago would know of this because it's one of the most famous Supreme Court cases in history.

In short, he is simply lying.

I'm still waiting on my two questions (that you brought up) to be answered. Come on... if you're not just spouting junk you get off your websites, you must surely be able to answer them.

I'll give you a hint to save you some time. moveon.org and mediamatters.org don't have your answers.

Alright. I'll be gone for a little while working for the man. I'll check back later to see how you've done.

I think we should be able to agree that both sides feel like they have to resort to tricks to keep up with the other side. That seems to be what we have come to.

I will say, chet... It looks like we agree on the healtcare bill, the mandates, congress' perks, and some other stuff.
