The Saudis know they have leverage given Biden's energy policies.
@ezralevant22hJust paid $155 for a tank of gas in Toronto. $2.15/liter. In the country with the world’s third largest oil reserves. But Trudeau won’t allow any pipelines to be built; and he raises his carbon tax every year so the little people “make better choices”. Like not driving.
A brief recap of Biden’s oil and gastastrophe: in January 2021, during his first days in office, the president revoked the Keystone Pipeline permit and issued an executive order that, in his own typically eloquent words, directed the “Secretary of the Interior to stop issuing new oil and gas leases on public lands and offsh- — and offshore waters, wherever possible. We’re going to review and reset the oil and gas leasing program.” ...Airline tickets are up 25 percent. The price of jet fuel is climbing higher and faster than Tom Cruise in Top Gun. This also means freight costs are through the roof and will be passed onto the consumer. “The rising cost of fuel, especially diesel, means that anything transported on a truck, train or ship is affected,” reports CNBC. In its quarterly update released in May, Amazon noted this eye-watering statistic:The cost to ship an overseas container has more than doubled compared to pre-pandemic rates, and the cost of fuel is approximately one and a half times higher than it was even a year ago.Social isolation? Check. Disrupted supply chain? Check. Crime spike? It’s coming: a Michigan police department announced it had exhausted its fuel funds and would be picking and choosing which calls to respond to in-person or over the phone. Patrolling will likely come to an end, too. A mobile healthcare provider in Fort Worth, Texas, told ABC how rising prices are “adversely affecting” emergency medical services (EMS), adding, “For rural EMS agencies that travel great distances, and have more challenging finances, the impact could be even greater.”
First time ever my car was over a 100$ to fill the tank. #letsgobrandon
Fill up when you are half empty
rwmalonemd@rwmalonemd·22hNo one is addressing the 800# gorilla in the room. Blackrock/Larry Fink has decided that petro has to go, and so the entire industry is being starved for capital via the ESG score (ergo social credit system) ranking process.Biden is just acting as Fink's handmaden, doing his bidding. Fink is the puppetmaster here.
And doesn't anyone in the White House understand basic economics? If you want to lower the price on something, increase the supply and not the demand.
