I live in the general vicinity of the cheapest gas in the country. $4.45 yesterday which means it's 20 cents higher on the other side of the city.

I drove by and laughed that it is time to TAP THE STRATEGIC RESERVES......

For all those pointing fingers for the price of gas let's hear your solution.
You all must have an answer otherwise you wouldn't be screaming so loud.
Please list all the con/repub ideas on lowering the price of gas - also list all inflation cures.

During the W reign the msm excoriated him when gas hit $4/gallon. Now the average has never been higher and we hear nothing but crickets from the msm about this issue.
Politics is one constant finger pointing exercise. No one offers solutions, just bitching and moaning. Doesn't matter who is in office - just yell how they are f'ing things up.

If you voted for Biden, you are an idiot.

You have to pay what they want you to pay. There is an alternative that cannot be mentioned....

It is hard to overstate how profitable the war in Ukraine and the resulting financial pain have been for oil executives. Companies already benefited from inflated gas prices in 2021 as the economy bounced back from the COVID-19 pandemic shutdowns—in fact, the top 25 companies made more than $205 billion in profits in 2021—but the recently announced first-quarter profits for 2022 are even more astounding.​
The top five oil companies alone—Shell, ExxonMobil, BP, Chevron, and ConocoPhillips—brought in more than 300 percent more in profits than in the first quarter of 2021. That is a total of more than $35 billion in profits in just three months. In fact, these five companies’ first-quarter profits alone are equivalent to almost 28 percent of what Americans spent to fill up their gas tanks in the same time period.​

You can’t be serious 2Lying.

Why in the hell would any energy company invest in drilling, installing a pipeline, fracking, or anything else pertaining to increasing supply related to ANY fossil fuels until the Republicans are in charge and begin to straighten out the mess created by Mr. Potato Head and the Democrats.

So the solution is to vote ALL Democrats out of power in the mid terms and the next Presidential election in mass.

The solutions aren’t going to come from any Democrat. It’s not political, it’s reality. If voters want to continue with this economic malaise, then vote for Democrats. If the country wants to prosper and get back to sanity, then vote for conservative Republicans. That’s the only solution.

And we might remind him that while Americans of ALL races, sexes, religions were flourishing under Trump prior to the pandemic, it was HE who was bitching and moaning not about the welfare of his fellow Americans, because he couldn't, but of lies like RUSSIA.

Trump showed you how to lower gasoline prices by becoming completely energy independent, but you apparently weren't paying attention. Russia!!! Russia!!! Russia!!! Squirrel!!!!

So,, how is it that when we were flush with oil and gas, the profits you state were lower?
I'll try to help, supply was meeting demand. Now supply is a problem. Why is supply a problem? Well, there's Russia and their 550 million barrels. There's our normal mid east suppliers, but there a little upset that our leader called their leader A murderer. Any other options out there? Venezuela and Iran gave us the finger. Any other places we could get oil? How about right under our feet. But the current admin apparently, by their actions, does not want any more oil from the us sources.
Some economists have predicted that if Biden simply went back to trump era oil and gas policies, prices at the pump would drop by $.35-.45 cents A gallon. Now I don't know how accurate that assessment is, because economists have their own agendas.
One thing I learned in my working career is that when there is a significant change in an outcome, first place to look is at recent actions taken that might have influence that outcome. Might not always be the reason, but more often than not it is. So I look at where we were in our oil and gas policies - and back to profit levels at that time - and I think you could make a debateable case that actions taken to overturn trump era policies in this area have significantly impacted both high prices at the pump and high profits for the oil companies

Yer pretty good at throwing around numbers. Howz about some context? What was their ROI over the last five years? Oil is a long term game and it takes billions to buy into the table.
