So this recent seemingly booming economy is all based on the drawdown of our oil reserves, we've been drawing them down since about last year that makes it look like the economy is using more oil, thus more production but actually the wells peaked and now they are drawing down the reserves and selling off.

I know that we were supposed to start selling off our strategic reserves starting 2018 for whatever reason. I think I read a thread in peak oil about it some time ago.

If you hear in the news that we are recovering and doing good, then its all fake news. Even my dad who is not a conspiracy theorist stated that the country is not recovering.
