America's energy job machine is heating up

CNN / Fortune -- Les bon temps are roulant, not just in Port Arthur but all up and down the Gulf Coast, from Beaumont to Biloxi. A renewed surge in deepwater production in the Gulf of Mexico has led to one of those periodic booms that have marked the oil-rich region ever since the first well, at Spindletop, just south of Beaumont, blew its top in January 1901. At the same time, a surge in domestic natural-gas supplies, which has come mostly from hard-to-reach shale formations tapped by the controversial fracking process, has pushed domestic oil and gas output to its highest level since 1988. Increased overseas demand for refined products like gasoline and diesel has made America a net exporter of finished petroleum products, something not seen since 1949. And to meet that demand, the oil giants are buildin

energy jobs may heat up in the Gulf, but the seafood industry is still not back. Nor is tourism.

America's energy job machine producing more jobs, oil and natural gas. But, Big oil is selling fuel and natural gas on the world market for higher prices and there will be NO price reduction for the cost of fuel or natural gas IN the US. Barry will support natural gas and oil production for sale on the world market to pay for his ‘spending gone wild’ addiction (federal oil tax collection). The US ‘oil and natural gas resources’ belong to the citizens of this country and are to be used by those same citizens! Speculators, manipulators and the banks continue to unfairly and unjustly make the driving public pays higher prices at the pump for their benefit.
Whatever the size or shape of the vehicle, Produce and ‘Drive’ vehicles with high MPG, are very reliable, have a ‘reasonable’ cost and a good ‘value’ for the money. Consider using other forms of less expensive transportation to lower your cost, if possible.
The price of fuel at the pump is too high!

Or is it now Communist News Network?

Hard to believe there is a network more liberal that that mess: MSNBC!

And this is called news?

NOT.

PS: This is propaganda intended to make BHO & Co. look better than reality.

Let the greenies spend their own money, not taxpayers' money.

Let the greenies walk. Let them freeze. Let them go broke. Let them go first.

Green is red.
