    The Interior Department on Friday finalized a rule making it more expensive for oil and gas producers to drill on federally owned lands. Several of the provisions in the rule — like raising the rent the government charges to oil companies for using its land and increasing the government’s share of the profits from that oil — were set out in law by the Democrats’ Inflation Reduction Act. The Biden administration will additionally make it more expensive for drillers to abandon their oil wells after use instead of cleaning them up. The administration argues that current bonding rates do not...

    Inflation ticked higher once again in March, with consumer prices up 0.4 percent over the previous month and 3.5 percent compared to one year earlier. The latest data marks the third month in a row that the consumer price index (CPI), a closely watched gauge of inflation, has come in hotter than expected, likely throwing cold water on hopes that the Federal Reserve would begin cutting interest rates soon.

    The nationwide average price for regular gas hit a reported six-month high of $3.60 a gallon on Tuesday, spiking more than 50 percent under President Joe Biden. In the past month, gas prices rose more than 20 cents. They are over a dollar more expensive ($2.38) than when Trump left office. Gas prices remain high and could go higher due to industry and political factors. Biden’s economic war on American energy independence during instability in the Middle East and in Ukraine are significant factors.
  • Don't Blame Me - What's Causing Negative Gas Prices In The Permian And How Long Will They Last?

    At first glance, nothing extraordinary jumps out about what’s happening in the Permian to depress Waha prices. Permian supply is in line with or lower than where it has been all winter, except for during the mid-January freeze-offs.Is it pipeline maintenance? Weirdly low demand?We’ve dug into it and determined that no single driving factor or event is to blame for the recent run of negative prices.Instead, it’s a combination of low demand (both within the basin and without), as well as pipeline work along several key routes, including El Paso Natural Gas (EPNG) and some of the newer greenfield pipelines...

    The nationwide average price for regular gas topped $3.54 a gallon, a spike of more than 45 percent under President Joe Biden, AAA reported Wednesday. In the past month, gas prices rose 20 cents ($3.34), about one dollar more expensive ($2.38) than when Trump left office. Gas prices remain high and could go higher due to industry and political factors. Biden’s economic war on American energy independence during instability in the Middle East and in Ukraine are significant factors. According to Goldman Sachs, gas prices could reach $4 by May.
  • Were the Colonial Pipeline and JBS Foods Hacks Acts of War?

    06/09/2021 12:15:24 PM PDT · by Kaslin · 29 replies ^ | June 9, 2021 | Austin Bay
    It's nationwide knowledge that in early May the Colonial Pipeline company suffered a severe cyberattack that shut down its pipeline connecting Texas to the East Coast. On June 1, JBS Foods suffered another crippling cyberattack. According to industry estimates, JBS controls 20 percent of the slaughtering capacity for American cattle and hogs. The JBS attack also generated headlines. The FBI and security officials believe two criminal organizations conducted the attacks. Their names sound a bit like those of the sinister super gangs found in James Bond novels. However, these gangs aren't fiction nor are their crimes. A crime group called...
  • What’s the future of your gas stove in Chicago?

    CHICAGO — The debate over the future of gas stoves in Chicago has been heating up in recent months. Under one proposal, called the “Clean and Affordable Buildings Ordinance,” the City Council could ultimately ban gas stoves in all new construction projects. Chicago is not the only government agency looking at ways to limit gas emissions. Last year, New York became the first state to ban natural gas and other fossil fuels in new buildings. Prominent Chicago Chef Rick Bayless made the transition in his restaurants years ago. “We wanted to make everything as environmentally friendly as possible,” said Bayless,...

    Oil and gas will play a role in the global energy needs for a "long, long, long time to come," said Shell chief executive Wael Sawan today. Sawan is working to move beyond a dialogue that "seems to fixate" on the notion one must choose between fossil fuels like oil and gas or renewables like solar and wind. "It's all. And we need them in abundance," Sawan told participants at CERAWeek by S&P Global conference in Houston today. Stable oil production is deemed necessary by Shell as it transitions its customers to lower carbon solutions over the course of decades....

    American drivers pay 45 percent more to fuel their daily commutes since President Joe Biden ascended to the White House, AAA data shows. The national average gas price on Monday was $3.46 per gallon, according to AAA, up about 20 cents from last month. When Biden assumed office, the national average was $2.38 per gallon, more than a dollar less than the current price. That is about a 45 percent increase since former President Donald Trump left office.

    The Biden administration is expected this week to finalize highly anticipated regulations targeting gas-powered vehicle tailpipe emissions, considered the tip of the spear in its efforts to electrify the transportation sector. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is slated to issue the final rulemaking — which officials have boasted will incentivize greater adoption of electric vehicles (EV), but which opponents have criticized as a de facto mandate — as soon as Wednesday, industry sources told Fox News Digital. The regulations, a key part of President Biden's climate agenda, would ultimately force automakers to more rapidly expand electric options in their fleets...

    Cooking on a gas stove in a tiny home is 100 times more deadly than leaving the car running in the garage, according to a new study out of Purdue University. The findings indicate that cooking could lead to the deposition of 10 billion to 1 trillion nano-particles in a person's airways and the tracheobronchial region of the lungs.

    CNN is back to its old schtick of desperately spinning higher gas prices to look like no big deal for Americans, even though they’re currently hovering at four-month highs. CNN addressed gas prices hitting $3.40 a gallon on Friday, after bottoming out at $3.07 in January. Instead of just reporting the straight news, CNN reporter Matt Egan begged readers in his headline: “Gas prices have surged to four-month highs. Don’t panic.” Egan has become a comedic figure at CNN for persistently doing the facts tango for President Joe Biden to deceive Americans struggling to pay at the pump, so it’s...

    A Nebraska woman has been arrested after allegedly using a sneaky trick to pump more than 7,400 gallons of gas for free over six months. Dawn Thompson, 45, allegedly used a rewards card 510 times between November 2022 and June 2023, pumping 7,413.59 gallons of gas worth $27,860.27, according to the affidavit. She allegedly exploited a pump glitch that allowed her to swipe a rewards card twice, switching the pump from regular mode to demo mode. From there, she pumped gas for free. Staff at Pump & Pantry in Lincoln, Nebraska, first reported someone involved in 'some sort of fuel...

    Qatar to expand natural gas production by 85 percent.. President Joe Biden’s pause on liquefied natural gas production is already turning into a major financial windfall for Qatar, even as the Gulf regime undercuts the United States and its allies by funding terrorists and sheltering fugitive Hamas leaders. Qatar, which is the third largest LNG exporter after the United States and Australia, announced last week that it is expanding its natural gas production by 85 percent. The news came weeks after the Biden administration announced that it would freeze new domestic LNG export permits, a policy that many political observers...

    President Joe Biden announced Tuesday he would withdraw his nomination of Sarah Bloom Raskin to serve on the Federal Reserve Board of governors after it was clear she would not win confirmation from the Senate. “Sarah was subject to baseless attacks from industry and conservative interest groups,” Biden complained in his statement, blaming Republicans for “amplifying these false claims” instead of moving forward to confirm his nominee. Biden made the announcement a day after Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) said he would not vote to confirm Raskin, expressing concerns about her comments about energy. Raskin authored a New York Times op-ed...

    Driving in Wisconsin has become a more expensive endeavor in recent days. The greater Madison region has seen some of the highest prices of regular unleaded gasoline at stations tracked across the state. According to the AAA gas price tracker, the Madsion metro average Thursday reached $3.27/gallon. That amounted to an average of a 10 cent rise from Wednesday, and a climb of an average of 22 cents since February 22. The Madison average from one month ago was $2.75/gallon. One year ago, the average was $3.08/gallon. In the Janesville/Beloit metro area, the average price of regular unleaded gasoline Thursday...

    The Biden administration is poised to soon finalize gas-powered car tailpipe emissions standards that consumer advocates and energy industry groups have dubbed a "de facto electric vehicle mandate." The Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) proposed tailpipe emissions – which were in recent weeks submitted to the White House Office of Management and Budget for final review – are designed to ensure a staggering 67% of new car sales are electric by 2032. Over the weekend, the New York Times and Washington Post reported the White House is set to double down on that lofty goal while loosening earlier targets. "The President...

    Democrat President Joe Biden has just canceled serval massive natural gas projects amid pressure from climate activists. On Friday, the White House announced that pending decisions on exports of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) to non-FTA countries have been halted until the Department of Energy could update the underlying analyses for authorizations. Following pressure from the climate mob, federal officials will now conduct a rigorous environmental review assessing the projects’ “carbon emissions.” The reviews, however, could take more than a year to complete. Projects involving billions of dollars will be disrupted over the move which has put over 70,000 jobs at...
