Very interesting that we can pump $49 billion dollars of taxpayer funds to help Ukraine people and millions of dollars in weapons to defend them, but we can’t pump the needed oil in our land controlled by our nation. What if that same priority and compassion was put into this nation with 40 million towards the hard-working American families by helping open up major oil leases and pumping some life into our economy.

Everything has increased across the board due to the fuel prices. Where is the desire to protect and provide for our nation first? There is nothing rationale or reasonable about this purposely created issue by the leaders of this nation.

According to the Yale School of the Environment, the oil industry in the U.S. already receives $62 billion per year in subsidies from the federal government. Last year, Shell made $9.1 billion in profits. Exxon made $8.8 billion in profits.

So, how much more do we need to give them, in your opinion?

Good for them. Just keep that kind money we’re sending to Ukraine and other places at home and use it or the families and people of this nation. Take care of your own house first so to speak. Time to start caring for our own.

Yale……lol….rich people telling the rest of us what is best for us… gotta do better than that buddy.

Already over $7 in Shell Beach/Pismo…and summer hasn’t even started. I wonder why Biden has such low approval ratings?

CA gas will be $10 per gal before the end of Biden’s presidency….

Share a ride, hitch hike and volunteer some cash, what would it take to bring back the past?

We should start with a new President and Congress and go from there! Oh, I almost forgot, we need a different Governor in California too.

A new president and leadership in congress…..

“What would it take to bring back the past,” you say? Oh how about the U.S. producing enough oil for it’s own needs and being a net exporter. How about $4.25 a gallon gas? How about the cost of EVERYTHING else being about 10-20% less? What WOULD it take to bring back 2016-2020?? You know, “the past.”

Oh,..I don’t know…..maybe whatever we were doing before January, 2021?
