    According to the Bureau of Land Management there was a 58% increase in the approval of drilling permits during the Clinton Administration
    and a 116% increase during the Administration of George W. Bush.


    Since Obama became President, the approval of drilling permits has decreased by 36%

    1) Production on Federal Leases is DOWN!
    While President Obama has been touting in recent days that his administration is promoting oil drilling in the United States, oil production on federally owned lands has in fact declined by 17,000 barrels per day since he took office in 2009.

    Oil Production on Federal Lands Has Declined Under Obama | CNSNews.com

    In a clear signal that the Obama administration is shifting the government's approach to energy exploration on public lands, Interior Secretary Ken Salazar yesterday canceled oil and gas leases on 77 parcels of federal land after opponents said the drilling would blight Utah's scenic southeastern corner.

    Salazar's decision -- which reverses the Bush administration's move to allow drilling on about 130,000 acres near pristine areas such as Nine Mile Canyon, Arches National Park and Dinosaur National Monument -- is one of a series of steps that the new administration and congressional Democrats are planning to reshape federal regulation of drilling, mining, lumbering and other resource-tapping activities.

    Overall produciton is up. And that increase is exported offshore. But still the price of gasoline goes up. So if we were drilling more on Federal Lands, that is just gasoline that would also be exported, and we would have that much less available for the future.

    YOU didn't read did you?
    The production is UP on NON FEDERAL LANDS!
    Production is down on Federal lands cause Obama's DECREASED leases by 36%

    BIT hey something SIMPLER for you totally stupid!

    ASSUME there is a gas tanker truck sitting outside your home.
    Now assume you can sell the contents of that truck to people begging to buy!
    Supply is limited.. demand is increasing.. prices go up!

    NOW PLEASE I know this is complicated but..
    SAY 10 gas tankers pull up beside the first one.

    Supply has increased.. demand still increasing BUT prices don't go up and why ?

    I know, I know this is very complicated.. BUT see if there is more of something that
    consumers can buy then the sellers lower the prices because THE sellers have bought the gas first!
    They have to get their money by selling their gas .

    Again complicated but..
    THE MORE supply the lower the prices!

    That's the way it works! Law of supply and demand!

    OH by the way YOUR beloved Obama's EPA forced the closing of a refinery that produces 350,000 barrels of gas a day ... think that has any bearing on the price of gas?

    Nothing quite so pathetic as someone who is for a global economy but fails to understand how it works or it's implications.

    We don't make as many horse whips and carriages as we used to, as well.

    Your point?

    Oil production is UP under Obama.

    Oh, you're just mad that the oil companies aren't getting an automatic free pass when it comes to OUR national wealth that BELONGS TO THE TAXPAYER and not these private extraction companies?

    Boo fucking hoo.

    YOU know it truly is PATHETIC you can't understand "SUPPLY AND DEMAND"!

    Why you pathetic ignoramous IS Obama and you other idiots then asking to release oil from the Strategic Oil reserve??
    EXPLAIN to me WHAT value that has OTHER THEN WHAT???
    INCREASING THE SUPPLY.. and hopefully reducing the PRICE???

    Are you that dumb regarding oil speculators to think they are buying contracts today based on gas prices today???? They buy 2 to 3 years or more into the future! Idiot!
    So all of a sudden AS IT HaPPENED under Bush...

    "soon as the President announced that we were going to end the moratorium on offshore drilling the price of a barrel of oil went down $10,"
    Crude oil prices are down about $20 a barrel from their record-setting intra-day high of $147.27 a barrel back on July 11.

    President Bush announced on July 14 he was lifting executive ban on offshore drilling, although Congress has yet to act on his call to lift its own drilling ban.
