I remember reading a while ago that it looked like we were exporting what seemed like a hugh amout of natural gas overseas,
Also some (not sure how much) of oil also exported. I can't seem to find a reference if this is still happening, If still much of anything, not good with our domestic prices,
If so, I can imagine some people could make a lot of money in that exporting bussiness and causing higher US prices.... --185.202.xxx.xx

So the former head CEO of Mitsubishi Power was on Steve Bannon's Warroom on Lindell TV on line yesterday around 4 and he is also on at 10 AM. He said that we must maintain a mix of energy production for this country to thrive. And it looks like that is being suppressed. Current admin is negotiating with the Saudis and Venezuela where Chevron will try to ramp up their production but Venezuelan oil is very dirty and will need more refining and pump more toxins into our air. Here in NJ people are complaining about warehouses going up on farmland. I think it's China because they are going to put up windmills offshore and try to make us use solar and wind only and supply different types of heaters and solar panels. I don't think we are exporting much because we are getting from Russia and looking for other sources, enemies or frenemies who could hold us hostage actually. It's messed up. --71.188.xx.xxx

2021: 22 bcm (billion cubic meters) of LNG sent to Europe from the U.S. Largest amount ever.
2022: 37 bcm sent.
Biden admin said exports will grow to 50 bcm per year.

intersting that I haven't seen this on our nightly news shows,..you might think this would be more widely known.. --185.202.xxx.xx

it's not really new or news. the producers don't want govt to restrict export, if anything prior mkt conditions limited production because price per barrel was down. the govt is increasing European shipments because Russia is disrupting things in Ukraine. look at actual quarterly reports and you will see oil n gas raked it in under the guise of inflation --72.10.xxx.xxx

Most in the Us are not aware the amount of crude that is imported from Canada to the Us where if they ramped up production would easily replace oil fron South America or other countries that are hostile to the Us. What Russia has done is to send to China, India and Africa where Russia needs money to continue this illegal war with Ukraine. As more weapaons enter Ukraine there is going to be a point where Russia will have to leave Ukraine. Spy planes are flying in Poland where providing in real tine information to the Ukrainian armed forces. The solution with oil and gas is completely reduce consumption where improving insulation in buildings along with eliminate long distance trucking by shipping with rail where use one powerful electric locomotive to haul train. In the EU most of rail lines are electrified for frieght and passenger. It is great to talk about being green when action needs to take place if oil and natural gas production is not in line with demand. --68.69.xxx.xxx

Heard it was proposed that if Russians left the nuclear power plant then Ukraine would allow oil to flow to the EU at a reduced price. Russians are unable to gain any significant territory in Ukrane even with significant loss of life and equipment. Oil is being used to fund the illegal war where Russia is running out of personal and equipment. --68.69.xxx.xxx

I don't know how much natural gas is being sent to Europe, but it has been in the news that the USA has increased shipments of natural gas to Europe.
Unfortunately, some of Europe is dependent upon heating fuel purchased from Russia and Russia is not feeling generous about them and their backing of the Ukraine. I don't like my heating costs going up, but on the other hand, I don't wish to see large swathes of Europeans freezing to death over this winter.
I sure hope the European countries take this as a wake-up call and work towards being more energy independent. The same for the USA, where we were energy independent until the current administration stepped in and interfered with production and shipping.. --76.178.xxx.xxx

I don't want Europeans to freeze either, but I understand that even for the short term, they could ramp up fairly quickly, IE more north shore oil production.I read that England recently put an additional tax on oil production to get more revenue, which caused oil companies to back of on production.
Also many countries have greatly been lax in insulation and other weathering projects.
When I visited several countries almost no one had double (storm) windows, Pretty old inefficient heating systems.
When I went to France one summer,.Ac's were so rare that people would go to some high end stores (like jewelry stores that DID have AC's just to feel that.) Non of the restaurants or hotels had AC, that was about ten years ago so maybe that has changed.
I believe that in WW11 there was legislation to not do things in foreign trade that would adversely effect the United States. I'm not one to usually have laws effecting commerce, but it seems to me that shipping our limited resources is just wrong.
Surprisingly our "leaders" don't seem to think this is bad.

This illegal invasion has to be stopped where since February 24th the military capacity of Russia is no longer second place. It is not just about Ukraine but to eventually take all of Europe where once they get rid of the Putin madman then other dictators will think twice about invading another country. Putin got a way with everything so far where now that has come to end. Whle no one likes paying more oil and gas there needs to be movement to conservation where housing energy consumption can be reduced or reduced to zero where there are buildings with net zero which do not require to be connected to the grid. The EU is making moves to reduce energy consumption where now more then ever over time the results are showing. Canada could easily export more energy to other countries where the governments oppose that. Cancelling the pipeline along they wanted to close other existing pipelines which supplies energy to eastern Canada which run through the Us. It is not diiffiuclt to reduce gasoline consumption by 10 per cent or reduce energy consumption in buildings even more. There is the technology to do that. In Germany there are addding insulation on the outside of the buildings then stucco where it is very rare to see a building with bricks. The EU most of the rail lines are electrified for passenger and freight. Take long distance shipping then using electrified rail lines for transport along with high speed passenger trains where less internal flights. Where the Italian airline went bankrupt was the transistion to high speed rail where trains reached speeds of 350 kilometers per hour. In one apartment building natural gas consumption was cut 60 per cent and electrical consumption was reduced as well by switching all hallway lighting to LED and exit signs to LED where lasted a very long time. Using LED lighting in my Tacoma where less energy and brighter lights. There are no longer any standard efficiency forced air furnaces sold here where the minimum is 96.1 AFUE, If Russia gets a reduced price for oil then evnetually the madmen will thrown out. China is starting to see what happen if invaded Taiwan. Now in the world there are no longer any neutral countries where the majority are the side of humanity or not. While GOP say they will change privately not so where only minority will side with Putin. Think about the military industry going through a economic boom. --68.69.xxx.xxx

After the invasion of Ukraine the world system has changed where the world has become united where no one thought it was possible that Sweden and Finland would join NATO. As a unified front the sanctions are starting to kick in as Russia was never able to produce all the products that are required. When you ask a leader that you want peace where he said you leave all of Ukraine then there will be peace. I under many people are not pleased about the increases in energy prices where no should agree with higher energy prices. When I drive by the new subdivision some people are still replacing with asphalt shingles which eventually wind up in landfills. Used tires, plastic and anything made out of crude can be converted back to gasoline, diesel where that should be considered. For houses and rental apartment buildings step by step is improve efficiency where over time the energy consumption will be reduced to half or even more. Take two single family houses for sale where one house uses 25 per cent of the energy that the other house uses then ask which house will sell fast along with higher price. Even a rental unit modest gains will make it more affordable along with easier to rent during the cold winter months. When shopping combine all purchases in one trip where then engine is at operating temperature. Tires are inflated a bit more where rolling resistance is reduced. Never race to a red light where slow down then sometimes do not even use brakes. January is getting closer which are coldest months here. If supply goes up then prices go down like everything else. --68.69.xxx.xxx
