    Three of the United States’ largest oil and natural gas companies are joining a major fossil fuel-backed international coalition to battle climate change. Exxon Mobil Corp., Chevron Corp. and Occidental Petroleum Corp. all announced that they’re joining the Oil and Gas Climate Initiative (OGCI) Thursday, in the lead-up to the major Climate Week event in New York City next week, where the group will have a meeting. The group was launched in 2014. Initially, United States-based companies avoided the initiative, and it was dominated by foreign companies like BP, Total and Royal Dutch Shell. “It will take the collective efforts...
  • Trump changes US policy: 'Conserving oil no longer an economic imperative'

    In terms of its effect on the lives of Americans, as well as the economy, the change of U.S. policy announced by the Trump administration last month to almost no media attention is a big deal. Ellen Knickmeyer of the Associated Press picked up on it belatedly: Conserving oil is no longer an economic imperative for the U.S., the Trump administration declares in a major new policy statement that threatens to undermine decades of government campaigns for gas-thrifty cars and other conservation programs.

    Singapore — South Korean refiners have paid close to $80/b on average for Russian crude oil received in June but under $75/b for US crude arrived in the same month, a stern reminder to the industry that short-haul supplies do not always come cheap and long-haul cargoes are not necessarily expensive. South Korea has imported a total of 2.17 million barrels of crude and condensate from Russia in June and paid on average $79.24/b, latest data from state-run Korea National Oil Corp. showed. KNOC's import cost figures include freight, insurance, tax and other administrative and port charges. On the contrary,...

  • Gas prices are topping $4 at some Fresno stations. Ready to pay more at the pump?

    Gasoline prices in Fresno already increased beyond $4 per gallon this week at some places in town. And gas prices are projected to rise even more going into the summer in the aftermath of President Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal. A year ago, the national average for was $2.34 for a gallon of gas, according to a CNN Money report. These days, that national average has jumped to $2.81 per gallon. Those in Fresno can probably add a dollar on top of the national price, with high state taxes and stringent standards for reformulating...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump criticized OPEC on Friday for output curbs that have helped raise global oil prices and said “artificially” high prices would not be accepted, drawing rebukes from oil-producing countries as prices dipped following his remarks. “Looks like OPEC is at it again. With record amounts of Oil all over the place, including the fully loaded ships at sea. Oil prices are artificially Very High! No good and will not be accepted!” Trump wrote on Twitter. Several members of OPEC, the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries, said in response that oil prices were not...
  • Gas Prices v. Tax Cuts: How Trump Can Protect His Signature Achievement

    During his short time in office, President Donald Trump has taken several steps that have generated robust economic growth, including signing historic tax cuts that have already led to bigger paychecks for American workers. But to ensure that Americans can keep enjoying the benefits of this popular tax cut, the administration needs to fight rising gas prices.The challenge is a familiar one. For example, in 2011, Americans’ savings from a payroll tax cut were largely negated by rising gas prices. Similarly, an analysis by the non-partisan organization Securing America’s Future Energy found that although former President George W. Bush’s tax cuts...

    The Trump administration has waived a key statute to allow for “as many ships as possible” to bring fuel into Florida, as part of a massive effort to ease gas shortages for Florida residents and others in the path of Hurricane Irma. “We’re bringing in as much supply of refined fuel as possible,” Tom Bossert, White House homeland security adviser, told reporters on Friday. The move was made in conjunction with state officials in Florida who are scrambling to get fuel to the pumps and alleviate gas shortages. Florida has taken several steps to expedite those shipments.

    That equates to roughly 428,568 barrels of oil per day out of the roughly 1.75 million bpd pumped from the Gulf. The amount of oil production offline increased from Friday, when roughly 22 percent of output was affected. About 26 percent of Gulf natural gas production is offline, or about 835 million cubic feet per day, BSEE said

    The last time gas was this cheap in America on the Fourth of July, the Kardashians didn't even have a television show. According to AAA, the average national gas price currently sits at $2.23 per gallon. That figure hasn't dipped so low since 2005 when Fourth of July drivers also owed $2.23 on average. It's the cheapest gas has been throughout 2017 as well. "The combination of tepid demand and increased gasoline and crude output continues to put downward pressure on gas prices," AAA Spokesperson Jeanette Casselano said in a news release. The least expensive market in the country is...

    The bulk of the decline in gasoline prices can be thanked on a recent plunge in crude oil prices as concern over weak demand and high supply has offset sentiment about last November’s OPEC production cuts. The number of U.S. rigs drilling stands at 877, a rise of 7 in the last week, but 462 more rigs- 111% more- than a year ago. While OPEC cut oil production, U.S. and Canadian oil companies have filled the gap, leaving OPEC to lose market share. How long the charade continues is up to OPEC, who will decide in a few weeks whether...

    Speaking at a campaign rally for Hillary Clinton in September, President Obama touted his economic record with these lines: “More Americans are working. More have health insurance. Incomes are rising. Poverty is falling. And gas is $2 a gallon.” First of all, the economic numbers he's bragging about are absolute smoke and mirrors. In November, Bernie Sanders told a crowd that Obama might be touting an unemployment rate of 5% or less, but that he could only claim that number when part-time jobs were counted the same as full-time jobs. According to Sanders, the real unemployment rate is over 9%....

    For families using natural gas in their homes, this could be an expensive winter... or a cold one without heat. New England consumes the most liquid natural gas (LNGs) out of anywhere in North America primarily due to high population density and colder climate. Historically, the price of LNG rises in correlation to snow storms. Because of bottlenecks in the pipelines for LNG, supply is limited in the North East and a demand surge can cause a spike in price. In 2015, there were only 6 million homes that use traditional heating oil in New England, whereas nearly half of...

    I have a 2013 Golf TDI Diesel that I have a strong option to give back to Volkswagen. I have been waiting for the election because I have a feeling that Clinton will continue the leftist policies of crawling up gas prices. However, I have been looking for a car, just in case. My goodness! Everything out there is chock full of electronics that will make them obsolete soon. Everything out there looks like a shiny, overgrown bug. I think I need something a bit more more butch-looking. I look longingly at jeep wranglers, but I am told that they...

    Colonial pipeline is investigating what caused a pipeline to leak nearly 336,000 gallons of gasoline into a man-made retention pond. That leak was discovered back on September 9th near Helena, Alabama after state workers noticed a strong smell of gas. The shutdown pipeline caused rising fuel prices amid gas shortages across the South. Investigators say the broke portion, built in 1963, has since been repaired. A preliminary report does not identify the cause of the break as the federal investigation continues.

    A leak has caused the closure of a crucial pipeline that carries gasoline to the eastern United States, a disruption that threatens to drive up prices and leave service stations without fuel to sell. A section of the Colonial Pipeline, which runs from Houston to New York, has been closed since Sept. 9 after a spill of roughly 250,000 gallons was discovered in rural Shelby County, Ala. The major pipeline, one pipe of which has been severed, provides gasoline for an estimated 50 million people on the East Coast each day, according to company estimates. The cause of the leak...

    In one of the rare recent increases for a late-summer week, U.S. retail gasoline prices unexpectedly rose in the week to August 22, by US$0.044 to US$ 2.193 per gallon, according to data by the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA). Gasoline prices have dropped during this particular week in eight of the past ten years, and last week saw the biggest increase for this week since a US$0.062 rise in 2005. In the previous two August weeks, U.S. average gasoline prices had stood at US$2.150 in the week to August 8 and at US$2.149 in the week to August 15....
