    EU Peasants think they will run on electric cars and that oil is now irrelevant.

    Jealous that America dominates their pathetic continent.

    Goodbye EU.

    Always remember that you will forever worship your American Gods.

    US steals oil from Iraq.
    Hide for 10 years.
    It starts to sell.

    Is there a way to tell where the oil comes from?

    This is really the only reason I am semi-for this.

    I would be all for this, if instead of oil, it was renewable energy, but that distinction will go to China.

    China is crushing the U.S. in renewable energy

    Seriously, fuck America. It's burning.
    This seemed like some bullshit, so I looked it up. Everything seems to trace back to a propaganda website. https://boingboing.net/2018/02/07/this-is-not-ok.html and a business news publication https://www.economist.com/news/unite...k-whats-matter they didn't do it so teachers could work a 2nd job. Many teachers have to work a 2nd job because pay was so low.

    In reality, the change benefits schools in rural areas, which struggle to pay for operational costs for public educational institutions. This does not mean that children go to school less as they increase the time per day that the kids are in class to make up for the one less day of instruction per week. Overall education is unaffected and the school system gets to save on money. Don't count on this ever coming to urban areas though, as many two-income households depend on the free childcare that comes with their children being in school.

    If the people are willing to pay the current price, why lower it? Just make more money off people's willingness to over pay.

    Welcome to the U.S. economy.
    Supply and demand is not real apparently.

    Yeah, not only are Euros triggered they are unable to tell whether someone is trolling them and making them waste hours of their own time.

    Though that does explain where they got all there money from. I know they got alot of cash out of Britain and France and such in lend lease fee's during ww2 but it never explained there sudden boom to me.
    We do for sure. It just used to be a lot less expensive to ship it in than pay Americans to drill it here. Also the idea of "startegic reserve" was always in play. In other words we would always have oil even if our allies fell for example and we couldnt control shipping lanes. Now with everyone elses prices are going up, supply is being controlled by people against American interest, so end of the day about 10 years ago they really start spolling up production. I know here in Texas the number of oil wells has exploded. Straight drilling I don't have to much of a problem with. But all the fracking I do kinda not like though.

    They've been in the top 3 for forever, and it's not the first time they were on top either. This has more to do with changes in the price of oil than any real policy shift or global change.

    Shrug.

    P.S. It's absurd watching all the emotion and nationalist self-identification people are putting into a shift in the commodities market.

    Uhm, every economics course I know explains that supply and demand indeed does not affect prices of a commodity when there is stuff going on such as price fixing by olipolies. Example: State Oil Co. v. Khan, 522 U.S. 3 (1997)
    They are rage, brutal, without mercy. But you. You will be worse. Rip and tear, until it is done.

    This entire thread is cancer. Its a bunch of salty EU posters and king salty from the US.

    American production is largely based on the cost of crude oil. It also has to do with the strength of the U.S. Dollar. It's not as if this is a huge bit of news, although the increased production can largely be considered good news for the economy.

    Edit: if we can produce our own oil why the heck did we invade so many countries for oil?

    Yes I agree, I think we should put on more Russian sanctions so the Euros can suck on my hose instead.
