The Foundation has now completed the sixth week-long trip this year of the Mobile Oilfield Learning Unit (MOLU) to schools in the Abilene area of Texas. This again was in partnership with the Offshore Energy Center of Houston. The Foundation already has plans for at least six week-long trips next year across Texas, with an optional seventh trip also on the schedule.

OBAMA WRONG ABOUT ENERGY SUPPLY---During his press conference last Thursday, Oct. 6, President Obama said that the U.S. is "running out of traditional energy." This statement is patently false---nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, average U.S. oil production this year is at an 8-year high, and U.S. natural gas production is at its highest level since the 1970s. This is according to data from the U.S. Energy Information Administration (www.eia.gov).

GREAT SUCCESS STORY----One of the great energy success stories, but which is underreported by the U.S. general media, is that average daily U.S. oil production has increased 13% in the last nearly 3 years since 2008. From January through July 2011, oil production has averaged 5.595 million barrels per day, compared to just 4.950 million barrels per day during 2008. These are "official" figures from the Energy Information Administration of the Dept. of Energy. This is the HIGHEST level of U.S. oil production since the 2003 average of 5.682 million barrels per day.

Solyndra, Barack Obama, and Crony Capitalism: Picking a Loser to be a Winner | RedState

It is outrageous that the Obama administration tossed $535 million to a struggling solar panel company that wasted the money, and which even people in the White House knew might fail (and it did). Meanwhile administration officials have simultaneously pursued punitive policies against companies in a healthy industry (oil and gas) that contributes greatly to the U.S. economy every day! Even so, U.S. domestic oil production improved last year.

Energy Secretary Chu says oil from Canada more 'comforting' than oil from Middle East

Energy Secretary Chu is correct in asserting that this pipeline project would do much to shore up U.S. energy security. Furthermore, the project will create thousands of U.S. jobs, something desperately needed in the current economy. But Chu's view is not held by his boss, President Obama, who reportedly has had heated arguments with Canadian Prime Minister Harper about the project, and about Canadian oil sands.

Bachmann Says She'd Consider Everglades Drilling

Rep. Bachmann's comment on the EPA being a "job killer" in the U.S. is certainly true, especially for traditional segments of the energy industry.

Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann said Sunday that she would consider oil and natural gas drilling in the Everglades if it can be done without harming the environment.

Once the school year begins again shortly, the Foundation will be scheduling at least two more visits of the Mobile Learning Unit between now and Dec. 15---one trip will be to Wichita Falls and Graham; another trip will be to Abilene. A 7th trip for 2011 might be scheduled in addition to these visits.

North Dakota is now the fourth-largest state in the U.S. for oil production, averaging 360,000 barrels per day, behind Texas (1.25 million barrels per day), Alaska (611,000 barrels per day) and California (550,000 barrels per day). North Dakota produces more oil than Oklahoma (196,000 barrels per day) and onshore Louisiana (183,000 barrels per day).

Release of oil from U.S. strategic reserve questioned - KansasCity.com

Oil & gasoline prices are now higher than they were before the release of 60 million barrels from strategic reserves.

After it was announced that the oil and fuel would be released from the nations Strategic Petroleum Reserve, gas prices did retreat. But from the beginning there were doubts about how long any price decline would last. Now prices are higher than when the decision was made.

Good idea or bad one?

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Wary of a new surge in gas prices, the Obama administration has decided to release 30 million barrels of oil from the country's emergency reserve as part of a broader international response to lost oil supplies caused by turmoil in the Middle East and North Africa, particularl

Obama’s New Dark Ages | Lubbock Online | Lubbock Avalanche-Journal

This is an excellent editorial, and it shows how the President's policies are creating energy shortages and pushing up the cost of energy to all Americans. The reasons for high energy prices include the weak dollar, the President, OPEC and Wall Street traders.

The persistent opposition of Barack Obama against energy production in the United States defies logic and common sense. The efforts of Obama and his Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) are bringing on the devastation and destruction Obama promised when he was running in 2008 and before.

Is Obama's Bet On Green Jobs Risky? : NPR

A great deal of money has been spent on so-called "green technologies," with very few results to show for it. Meanwhile, the U.S. is headed for energy shortages.

The administration is betting that green technologies will create the jobs of the future. But despite reason for optimism, critics doubt whether the White House or anyone can see into the future with confidence or prevent such jobs from going overseas.

Oil up 2 percent on weaker dollar, gas prices down

Once again, a weak U.S. dollar responsible for higher oil prices, not oil and gas industry decision-making.

Oil rose about 2 percent Tuesday after a sharp drop in the dollar and reports of pipeline problems in the Midwest.

From today's Washington Post: Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La., displayed a chart Tuesday showing government projections that oil production will decline. Some of that decline is due to the lapse in drilling that occurred in the Gulf of Mexico after the BP blowout and spill. “The bottom line is we need to step it up, or these numbers are going to get worse, not better,” she said.

Oil CEOs on the Hot Seat

Oil/Gas CEOs testifying at Senate Finance Panel Hearing. High gas prices are due to Dollar value and speculation on Wall Street, factors that are beyond the control of oil and natural gas companies.

With gas prices above $4 a gallon in much of the country, Democrats and Republicans are squaring off over whether to cut tax credits for oil companies enjoying a banner profit year, or let the industry drill more.

05/09/2011

The two largest factors in pushing up gasoline prices continue to be the weak value of the U.S. dollar (causing crude oil sellers to raise prices to maintain value), and "speculation" by traders on oil markets, as in the Mercantile Exchange in New York. These factors are beyond the control of oil and natural gas companies.

Obama to help Brazil develop its oil

The President's stated intention to help Brazil develop its own oil resources, and thereby obligate the U.S. to import more Brazilian oil while neglecting its own oil development, is unfortunate and misguided. It is hard to see how this will reduce U.S. dependence on foreign oil, improve our trade balance or bolster U.S. economic health.

Rep. Gene Green (TX-29) is a lead cosponsor of a House bill that will extend oil and gas leases in the Gulf of Mexico for one year.
