With all the outsourcing to foreign countries of the good jobs that can provide for a family. You know the labor and Industry jobs, Information
Technology jobs. I was thinking in an attempt to lower our cost of products we outsource Oil Refineries.
The Cost of Oil effects how much just about Everything costs.
Crude accounts for 49% of the Costs
Refining accounts for 9% of the Costs
Distributing and Marketing accounts for 18% of the Costs
Taxes account for 24% of the Costs
We currently are outgrowing the US's ability to keep up with production.
More Refineries Needed
Other countries have looked into outsourcing production
I propose that instead of importing in crude oil and refining it here at extremely high costs. We import the oil and petroleum products after they
are refined in foriegn countries at tremendous savings. I believe that this will have a huge impact on lowering the cost of just about every single
product. Petroleum products, oil and gas should all drop drastically.
Another benefit would be No operating Refineries here polluting the place up.
Possible? I think it could be done.
Practical? Big Oil Companies would lose tons though, so I see this being blocked and shot down by big oil companies and their supporters though.
So what do ya'll think?
