  • Former Shell President Hofmeister Sees Oil at $80 by the Summer

    When a massive truck slams on the brakes to avoid a crash, it takes awhile for it to get back up to highway speed again. That, in essence, is the problem oil companies will face when they want to increase production if supplies start to fall short. The selloff in crude oil has put drilling on hold. Unless more drilling resumes soon, a surplus of 1 million barrels a day will be exhausted. John Hofmeister, a former president at Royal Dutch Shell , predicts that will happen by the summer and will send prices up to $80 a barrel. "When that cost correction...

  • Obama Plans Won't Cut Oil Prices For Decades, If Ever

    Investor's Business Daily ^ | 3/22/2012 | John Merline
    Whenever the subject of drilling comes up, President Obama consistently discounts it as a way to lower oil prices...Instead, Obama has been touting an "all of the above" policy, which focuses less on what he calls the "fuel of the past" and more on things like alternative energy and improved efficiency. He will tout this approach again on Thursday at stops in Oklahoma and Ohio. But will those other efforts work any better than would aggressively pursuing more oil production?
  • What If Oil and Natural Gas Are Renewable Resources?

    ....The evidence is mounting that not only do we have more than a century's worth of recoverable oil in the United States alone (even if there is a limit to the earth's oil supply), but that we also actually have a limitless supply of Texas tea because oil is in fact a renewable resource that is being constantly created deep under the earth's surface and which rises upward, where microscopic organisms that thrive in the intense pressure and heat miles below us interact with and alter it. In other words, we have an unending supply of oil, some of which...
  • Former Shell Oil President: We Won’t Have Enough to Fill Gas Tanks No Matter the Price

    CNS News ^ | 3/13/12 | Melanie Hunter
    Former Shell Oil President John Hofmeister predicted that the U.S. won’t have enough oil to fill gas tanks whatever the price and that high gas prices could lead to another recession, because people won’t be able to buy things. The host of “Washington Journal” asked Hofmeister if he agreed with the head of ExxonMobil, Rex Tillerson, that the U.S. won’t see $5 a gallon gas and that the rhetoric over Iran is responsible for driving up gas prices temporarily. “There’s a lot of views out there, and I’ve been articulating a $5 price.

    HOUSTON - A former Houston oil executive predicts drivers could be paying $5 for a gallon of gas by the end of the year, and says politicians in Washington D.C. are to blame. John Hofmeister is the retired president of Shell Oil. He currently runs the non-profit group Citizens for Affordable Energy. "It was actually December, 2010, when I predicted $5 gasoline by the end of 2012," said Hofmeister. "And, I said then, 'I hope I'm wrong.' My concern is I won't be wrong." Some energy price analysts have said Hofmeister's prediction is likely off by at least $1 --...

    Some of the guys and I are presently at the camping lodge and we’ve got a problem that requires the help of a sensible woman. My brother-in-law managed to get something in his hair this morning, and he wanted to wash it out. I can’t tell you what that something was, because he’s refused to divulge that to us thus far (I suspect that he fabricated the “tainted hair” theory to save himself some embarrassment.) My brother-in-law believes that his wife has, at some point, told him that peanut butter is a useful household hair cleaner / conditioner. His wife...

    SINGAPORE (AP) -- Crude oil prices held steady just below US$60 a barrel on Wednesday after predictions of warmer weather in the United States sparked a big drop two days earlier. Market experts said prospects for rising demand could keep prices at current levels. Light, sweet crude for December delivery gained 5 cent to US$59.90 a barrel in electronic trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange. On Tuesday, the contract rose 9 cents to settle at $59.85 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange, where a day earlier they had fallen nearly US$1.50 to a level about 15 percent...

    U.S. activist Rev. Jesse Jackson on Tuesday said his organization will target top energy companies like Exxon Mobil Corp. and ConocoPhillips in a push to create more jobs for women and minorities in the industry. Jackson said members of his Rainbow PUSH Coalition plan to buy stock in 20 of the world's largest energy companies. As investors, the group will seek change by attending annual meetings, calling for talks with the companies' chief executives and pressing for fairness hearings at the state level. "We intend to inject ourselves into the struggle for fair access to energy," Jackson told a news...

    HELENA, Montana (Reuters) - Montana's governor wants to solve America's rising energy costs using a technology discovered in Germany 80 years ago that converts coal into gasoline, diesel and aviation fuel. The Fischer-Tropsch technology, discovered by German researchers in 1923 and later used by the Nazis to convert coal into wartime fuels, was not economical as long as oil cost less than $30 a barrel. But with U.S. crude oil now hitting more than double that price, Gov. Brian Schweitzer's plan is getting more attention across the country and some analysts are taking him very seriously. Montana is "sitting on...

    NEW YORK - Oil prices bolted to a new record above $132 a barrel Wednesday after the government reported that supplies of crude oil and gasoline fell unexpectedly last week. And crude's rise in the futures market again pressured consumers by pulling prices at the pump higher — a gallon of regular gas rose overnight to a new record above $3.80 a gallon. With gas and oil prices setting new records on a daily basis, many analysts are beginning to wonder whether anything can stop runaway prices. There are technical signals in the futures market, including price differences between near-term...
