When the US gets cold, the world pays more for oil

When Wall Street sneezes, Tokyo gets the flu.

But untapped resources could help break this cycle of price shocks. Liquefied natural gas (LNG), a shippable, compressed form of natural gas, is plentiful worldwide, and is found in places including Australia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Qatar and Alaska.

What a POS article this is.

DO YOU SEE ANY MENTION OF ANWR HERE?

"In South Korea, which imports all of its oil..."

Well then, I guess the world better start reconsidering its opposition to global warming.

This is true for any commodity on the world market. Rich nations no longer suffer from famine. If, say, France has a bad wheat crop, it just buys more on the international market. France's famine then get "exported" to other, poorer countries who have to pay more for for wheat that is now more expensive. Nothing new here...

If and when Technology can replace many of the uses of oil for energy, it will still be used in great quantities for manufacturing and lubrications. The less advanced the economy, therefore, the more requirement will remain for traditional oil use to power vehicles, produce electric, etc. Again, if and when the US is able to leverage it's technology, we will still how hugh reserves that will forever be tapped for limited uses thereby allowing US(A) to further accelerate our economy. As an example, there was time when Wind and Sail on Wooden Ship made travel across the oceans viable, or steel rails or canels... but when man was able to break these limited "transportation" modes we actually had very little dependent usage for the former methods.

Oil is a political hot potato(e) and everyone has their take, either it is bad because of imports, Arabs, limits on supply and distribution, the environment, etc., and someday American's Industrialists (read: evil republicans/conservatives) will make this Earth Shaking Natural Resource somehing over which the US will no longer have vested economic strategic interest.

Americans' voracious appetite for fuel, coupled with the decade-long shrinking
of the US energy industry


From: Real (rational) Americans
TO The people of Planet Earth (other than Americans)

RE: Upward pressure on oil prices when the weather is cold in the USA

If you have complaints, please call The Democratic National Committee.
Ask for Terry McAuliffe
And call Representative Nancy Pelosi of The House of Representative
And call Senator Tom Dashle of The Senate of The USA.

Ask all three why the blue blazes they obstruct every move to reasonably increase
fuel exploration and refining capacity in the USA.

Otherwise, shut up.

Have a nice day.
