Thought id do a bit of research on this Sashas' sources found on the EIA it is more like 700,000 barrels/day but the data stops in 2012 so god knows
what it is now, there is deffinetly a big increase in the last decade:
1970 levels were just about 1000,000 barrels a day . The data is quite clearly presented in a disinformation format as ( you have to multiply by 1000)
at first glance it looks like 7000 barrels per day...
As for usage it seems to be roughly 18 million per week so thats roughly 2.5 per day or a deficit of 1.6 million barrels/day (going by 900,000
Is the source reliable?
What are they doing over there in the US drinking the stuff, in the uk its roughly $8 per gallon which is roughly double the US , my car does 50 miles
to the gallon ( on the motorway ), my brother was telling me that when he was in san fransisco his friend bought a new car and was boasting that it
did 12 miles to the gallon....

Honestly, I don't care to research into the situation further. Oil just doesn't appeal to me very much. I'm sure eia.gov is a much more reliable
source that Faal. I don't usually spend too much time outside of the Paranormal/Aliens/Metaphysics forums, but from my time in there I have seen Faal
called out on many occasions.
Just from the articles you have posted between this thread and the North Korea one I PMed you about, I would say it is best to forget that you ever
saw them and do the research on your own. The articles are sensationalized to say the least.
You are off to a good start though. It is always good to follow sources back to the root, attempt to assure legitimacy, and then make your own
conclusions on the subject.
Anywho, back to your last question. I honestly think the 12mpg car buying was a rare occurrence or exaggeration. San Franciscans are very liberal for
the most part, and public transit/walking/biking is fairly common. It would not be unheard of though. I had a 5.5" lifted Jeep Wrangler with 35" tires
re-geared and all tricked out for off road, that I eventually sold to a guy from San Fran. My Jeep still got around 16mpg. I think your buddy might
have bought like a tricked out Hummer or something!
The rest of CA is much more vehicle oriented, though, so it wouldn't surprise me anywhere else. I love driving and racing (and I know many people who
do), but I recently moved to an old kz440 in an effort to save money and still be able to travel.
