The driver was crying because he paid $75 to fill his vehicle with biden's OPEC.
Here's why Putin can afford to mass 190,000 soldiers at the Ukraine border.
President Joe Biden has fueled this Russian-Ukraine crisis by canceling the Keystone XL Pipeline his first day in office and waiving sanctions on the Nord Stream 2 Pipeline, Putin's "lifeline," according to Sen. John Thune, R-S.D.

"Somebody once described Russia as a gas station masquerading as a country," Thune told "The Cats Roundtable" WABC 770 AM-N.Y.

"If you take energy out of their economy, it would be a crushing blow."

Yet, Biden has handed Putin billions with the increased costs of oil and the future energy income off Germany with Nord Stream 2, Thune lamented to host John Catsimatidis.

"This is how the Russian economy goes; this is how Putin became a billionaire; this is how he funds all the activities and the military that we're now seeing on the Ukrainian border," Thune continued.

"The notion that the United States of America would shut down an American pipeline and yet support one that Putin is using to keep his economy going – the irony of that and the absolute hypocrisy of that you can't even fathom."

Thune surmises Democrats have an ulterior motive here to push the world against oil and Russia and toward electric vehicles and still more-costly renewable energy.

"I think that's part of [their] strategy — to push people out of fuel-based vehicles," Thune said. "But you are absolutely going to crush the economy and a lot of middle-income families, many of whom are not going to be able to buy [electric vehicles]."

Thune said even optimistic green-energy supporters note the transformation will take years, if not decades. Electric vehicles have a place, but they should be a choice and not a mandate, according to Thune.

"If people want to convert to electric vehicles [by 2035] more power to them," he said. "But that means between now and then we're going to need a lot of fuel. Why would we not be developing American resources to do that?"

The urgency of shutting down the Keystone XL Pipeline in the meantime is a costly mistake by Biden, Thune continued.

"The [energy] requirements that we're going to have to meet in this country for the foreseeable future will have to be met with fuel oil," he said.

"But, because of policies that are out of whack relative to what the real economy is dictating, [it's] not being developed. It's unfortunate and sad that the United States of America is going to hat-in-hand to countries in the Middle East like the Saudi's asking them to produce more energy so that we can fuel our economy here in the United States when we can do it on our own."

Also, Thune noted, there is not enough electricity in America to even power the Democrats' intentions.
Thank goodness the USA is sending hundreds of millions out OUR TAX DOLLARS TO STRENGTHEN THE UKRAINE BORDER, while ours is overrun.

    The Keystone XL pipeline never delivered one barrel or one drop of oil. Even if it were built and delivering oil today it would have absolutely no effect on the price of gas you're paying today. Oil is a fungible commodity. Do you understand what that is, it's implications?
    Do you realize we still have so much oil available in our country WE EVEN EXPORT OIL?!

    And yes.... you are an idiot!

How anyone could support a coward of a president who would abandon over 9000 American citizens and LIE about it is beyond me and beyond every single Military Personnel in this country and even our Allies.

    Probably easier to support him than the tyrant who planned and started the overthrow attempt of our government on January 6th.

    But, obviously not for you. You're more the traitor/tyrant type.

Biden's foreign policies (F) started the gas price hike, and it's just the begining
Posted on: 2022-02-20 12:43:55   By: Anonymous

© getty As gas prices soar, Americans can blame Joe Biden
President Biden is already boosting oil prices, and he's barely gotten started.

Biden is frantic to help Americans hard-hit by COVID-19, or so he says. But while his $1.9 trillion "American Rescue Plan" would send cash to millions, much of that windfall may go to pay for higher gasoline and home heating prices.

Americans should blame Biden, but not for the reason you might think. Biden's attack on U.S. energy producers, starting with his freeze on federal oil and gas leases, will assuredly take a toll on output down the road and cause prices at the pump to rise.

But today, Biden has pushed those prices, which were already rising because of severe weather, even higher by gratuitously alienating Saudi Arabia. The Gulf kingdom just surprised energy markets by announcing it would not raise oil output, despite developing supply constraints and rising prices. Oil prices jumped on the news, popping 4 percent to pre-pandemic levels for the first time in a year; the surge rattled markets already nervous about rising inflation.

The Saudis are reminding Biden that they can be a valuable ally or a formidable foe.

In his fever to undo every vestige of the Trump presidency, Biden has undermined the extraordinary progress made by the previous administration towards peace in the Middle East, including by "recalibrating" our relationship with Saudi Arabia. The signing of the Abraham Accords between Israel and the UAE, Bahrain, Sudan and Morocco marked an undisputed breakthrough in opening relations among bitter enemies and also in ring-fencing a belligerent Iran.

Instead of attempting to build on that achievement, Biden has tried to bury it. Upon taking office President Biden immediately froze arms sales to the UAE, which had been promised as part of the deal. He next halted military aid to the Saudi war in Yemen and rescinded the terrorist organization designation applied to the Houthis by President Trump, emboldening that group to step up their attacks on Saudi Arabia.

Also, it took a full month for Biden to call Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, finally speaking to the leader of one of our strongest allies only after reaching out to more than a dozen other heads of state.

All these gestures made it clear, not that "America is back," as Biden has proudly announced, but that America is going

The crowning blow to our improved realignment of interests in the Middle East, however, was Biden's decision to insult the de facto ruler of Saudi Arabia by releasing an intelligence assessment that Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MBS) was responsible for orchestrating the murder of Jamal Khashoggi. This affront followed the White House announcing that Biden would not speak to MBS, as he is called, but rather, communicate with his father, the ailing Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz.

The Khashoggi report contained nothing new; the "reveal" simply signaled Biden's disdain for the controversial leader and disagreement with everything Trump, who had a close working relationship with Saudi Arabia's next ruler.

The Abraham Accords shocked the world; even the New York Times's Tom Friedman recently hailed the "game-changing" breakthrough, writing that "something big seems to be stirring."

Many hoped that Saudi Arabia might also join the Accords, which would, Friedman concludes, make the agreement "one of the most significant realignments in modern Middle East history." Most likely, Biden has killed that possibility.

Offending Saudi Arabia scratches a Leftist itch; indeed, human rights groups complain that Biden did not punish MBS directly, after promising to do so on the campaign trail. But it will not help American consumers.

Saudi Arabia still occupies the enviable position of swing oil producer; they are currently producing about nine million barrels of oil per day, down from 9.8 million barrels in 2019. The country has the capacity to produce between 11 and 12 million barrels, thus allowing it to flood the market when prices get too high. Because the nation is wealthy, it also can cut output to prop up prices, as it did last year when, due to COVID-19, energy demand collapsed.

In other words, despite the growth in U.S. oil output in recent years, the Saudis still run the show. And MBS runs Saudi Arabia. Last year, a personal confrontation with Vladimir Putin drove him to push a price war with Russia; almost certainly, the recent decision to drive prices higher was also his.

Gasoline prices had already posted sizable increases, with the national average price rising for eight weeks in a row to $2.71 a gallon as of March 1, up from $2.40 at the end of January and against last May's price of $1.79.

Some are now predicting that prices will top $3.00 per gallon as we approach the summer driving season. A driving season that will see millions return to the roads as the COVID-19 crisis eases.

Travelers this summer may get a preview of what Biden's anti-oil policies will come to mean for their pocketbooks. Right out of the gate, Biden curtsied to the climate warriors by canceling the Keystone Pipeline and, more consequentially, pausing the leasing of federal lands for oil and gas development. Federal lands account for about 22 percent of U.S. oil production.

It is clear those are just his opening moves; Biden's appointments of progressives to important Cabinet posts and insertion of climate issues into every agency's agenda will doubtless drive U.S. oil and gas investment and production down over time. Consequently, prices will increase.

In 2012, President Obama suffered one of the worst-ever drops in his approval rating when gas prices spiked. According to a NYTimes/CBSNews poll at the time, "54 percent of poll respondents believed that a president can do a lot to control gas prices..." and had punished Obama accordingly.

In Biden's case, that 54 percent is correct.
