    WASHINGTON, September 19, 2013 ? Total U.S. petroleum deliveries (a measure of demand) edged down 0.7 percent from August 2012 to average 19.1 million barrels per day last month. These were the highest deliveries for the year but remained the lowest August level in 4 years. "August saw a continuation of trends that have been building for quite some time," said API Chief Economist John Felmy. "The incredible rise in American energy production, helped in part by softening demand, has allowed the United States to dramatically increase energy exports and reduce its energy imports." Demand for gasoline rose 0.4 percent...

    HomeVaultGreen RoomEd Morrissey Show Shocker: Domestic Oil Production Down, Foreign Imports Up Share posted at 10:12 am on March 11, 2011 by Jazz Shaw regular view Fortunately for all of us, the wise energy policies of the Obama administration have us well on the way to a sustainable, secure energy future for our nation. After all, who could argue with a policy where we seek to import less oil from abroad, stifle the domestic production of such resources and do nothing to replace the shortfall? With that in mind, surely nobody would expect a result like this. The lack of...

    U.S. Resists Building Refineries As Overseas Firms Move Ahead By THADDEUS HERRICK in Houston, BHUSHAN BAHREE in New York and KEITH JOHNSON in Madrid Staff Reporters of THE WALL STREET JOURNAL December 28, 2005 A surge in investment in new refineries is under way overseas even as U.S. refiners remain leery of adding facilities -- a development that could make the U.S. more reliant on imports of refined products like gasoline and heating oil in coming years. About 100 projects representing as much as 12 million barrels a day of added refining capacity, most of them outside the U.S., could...
  • 2004 Crude Oil Imports From Persian Gulf

    2004 (Most Recent Figures Available) Crude Oil Imports From Persian Gulf Highlights: Released on February 23, 2005 It should be noted that several factors influence the source of a company's crude oil imports. For example, a company like Motiva, which is partly owned by Saudi Refining Inc., would be expected to import a large percentage from the Persian Gulf, while Citgo Petroleum Corporation, which is owned by the Venezuelan state oil company, would not be expected to import a large percentage from the Persian Gulf, since most of their imports likely come from Venezuela. In addition, other factors that influence...

    Nigerian Strike To Focus On Oil ExportsNigeria’s largest labor organization has called for its 2nd national strike — to start Nov. 16 — against recent government hikes in the domestic retail oil price. This strike, however, is strategically aimed at stopping Nigeria’s lucrative oil exports. Nigeria is the world’s seventh largest oil producer, and is the fifth largest provider of oil imported by the United States. If the strike is effective, its effects could ripple through the global oil economy, causing wholesale prices to rise beyond its recent record levels, and raising U.S. gas and fuel prices.

    A patent was granted on March 26, 2002 for "The Motionless Magnetic Generator," MEG) US Patent 6,362,718, which is likely to become the first commercially available free energy device in history in about one year from now. The machine will provide free electricity from the vacuum, for the life of the device, which should be a very long life since it has no moving parts. You can see a picture of scientist Jean Louis Naudin's MEG replication model at: It has strong magnets, coils, and a controller unit with the electronics. Naudin made the announcement to the MEG-builder's Yahoo...
