Our Liberal Congress doesn’t seem to understand that actions have consequences.
Kind of like believing in Harry Potter or spending too much time watching Pirates of the Caribbean. In those movies, dumb actions never have adverse consequences. Bad things are merely the result of evil people or just purely random occurrences.
However, in real life (as opposed to “reel life”), when a company is prohibited from doing something, it actually doesn’t do it.
You then can’t reasonably turn around and berate the company from not doing whatever it was they were prohibited from doing.
The only cure for soaring prices is to flood the market with energy of all kinds. That means starting production of oil, natural gas, oil refineries (oil right out of the ground cannot be used for anything unless it is converted into usable products … gasoline, jet fuel, asphalt, diesel fuel, etc.), nuclear electric generating plants, and that includes allowing oil companies to do horizontal drilling and fracking dense shales to allow trapped natural gas to flow and using other high tech procedures to extract oil from shale.
