Remember when Trump made us energy independent and had them literally giving oil away


Was that when we were importing millions of barrels of oil to meet our demand? Maybe check the EIA data and see for yourself.





-18$ a barrel

Trump was so much better for America than your guy

These issues didn't happen in a vacuum and they didn't happen overnight.

If government actually cared for the poor, they'd drop the taxes on fuel.


Obviously they haven't because obviously they don't.

Local Left-mouthpiece radio station had a discussion on this last week.

Their angle was a threatening “What WILL it take to make you stop driving?”.

For those of us who don’t live downtown, giving up driving isn’t an option. Short-term neither is an electric vehicle because many areas don’t have the capacity to support the chargers. The energy needs to come from somewhere.

Pea-brains don't realize that the price of the food they eat is directly dependent upon the price of gasoline.

VP Kamala Harris tells Americans to get ready for additional fuel-related inflation due to her and Biden allowing the Russia-Ukraine situation to happen.

On a side note, it probably wouldn’t hurt some Americans to hop on a bike a little more.


They'd probably crush it if it didn't pedal away from on its own first.


I used to bike at minimum 2 hours everyday when I lived in Europe.
I did a fair amount in Florida too.

Moved to the Midwest and blah!!! Let’s face it, most places in the US just weren’t planned for travel by any means other than car/truck.

Do you remember back when gas got up to or close to $4 a gallon and the media asked Dubya every press conference what he was going to do about it? Good times.

Ron Paul never won, so my guy didn't get in. This doesn't change the fact that we imported a large amount of oil under Trump despite your alternate take on reality.

Just watch what happens to the electric car industry after China takes Taiwan.

Our Illinois governor says he'll reduce the 36 cents a gallon tax by 3 pennies...maybe.

Biden didn't send the $40 Billion he requested, in order to replace the money his people stole from the Teachers Retirement fund. So Pritzker is resistant to anything that reduces revenue.

Agreed, plus biking to and from work/recreation is a good way to get a squishy.

Something is already upside down in that industry. Used cars cost more than new cars (of the same model) here in the Midwest.

Illinois is my home, but it is the most corrupt costly state. When living there you try to put the blinders on but it’s really hard. Until you move you will never realize how bad it is.

I remember for years after being shocked at how much we were screwed over there. The very first incident. I went to register my kids for school. It only cost $40 or something like that, in Illinois it was many many times that. That seems like a small amount, but small amounts many times over add up to 75% of your paycheck!

Thank the Saudis and the rest of the Middle East for all the light sweet crude they send us. Good thing we're 'energy independent', huh? Let me know when we don't need their oil anymore.

totally off topic here, but have we (the collective we) figured out what to do with the batteries once they die? Throw them into the ocean off the coast of Japan?


The plans that I saw were to repurpose them for home use coupled with solar as the demand on them is not as intensive as if they were installed in a vehicle. After that I am not sure.

You know who I work for so you're aware I have no reason to embellish this.


I wasn't in "bust your balls mode", it's a legitimate question that we all need to understand when factoring in the savings to the Earth in all this. I'm in the minority that thinks more than 1.2 minutes into the future.

Just as the energy required to charge these batteries comes from somewhere. It would be a shame if we let the greenies get everything they wanted, only to find they flucked up the planet more than if they were to STFU and sit the F down.

If they come up with a viable alternative fuel source that doesn't require more energy they we use today, it would be welcomed by all. (except for the oil folks)

Why the f wouldnt you buy it from the middle east at -18 a barrel and fill our reserves?

It was actually genius

Then they'll charge just as much or more to allow people to charge their car on the road.


The third party charging market is looking to be highly competitive at this point with many companies not normally associated with EV charging either manufacturing or partnering with manufacturers. There is also a very healthy home charging sector so if you are commuting you would not need to use a third party.

Just letting you know the landscape from someone who is on the inside of a lot of this.


As of right now, that's correct. Once the majority of Americans depend on them, the prices will likely skyrocket.
