Obama prepared to tap oil reserves

Post by Guest on Fri Mar 11, 2011 3:56 pm

President Obama said Friday that he is prepared to tap the nation's strategic oil reserves to offset any supply disruption that's a factor in driving gasoline prices higher.

Obama said increased demand in a recovering global economy, combined with the conflict in oil-producing regions of North Africa and the Middle East, is behind the recent surge in gas prices.

So my question for this would be, What would be considered an emergency? Gasoline just went up to $3.60 a gallon here. Normally it is a little over $2 a gallon. Does it have to average $4 a gallon before it is an emergency enough to tap resources?

I assume by resources he means gasoline that is stored for government use?

Right, he said they would open up reserves if there was a disruption in the supply.
There isn't a disruption in the supply right now. Arabia is covering Lybia slowdown.
The prices are rising because of Wall Street and something called "Fear Indicators."
Trading on the fear that there WILL be a disruption in supply.
I saw something about it on CNN the other day. Right now, there is no limit they can trade on these fear indicators. There is talk of capping limits.

Search "fear indicators, oil".

His, Obama's speech "when you think about all these natural disasters, you think about your family." Jeez, what about the Wall Street un-natural disasters right in our back yards, no one is/was thinking about our families. Interesting fact the Earthquake in Japan equals our unemployment rate. Let's spend a couple million, billion, trillion to help everyone else. There will never come a day when he will touch our reserves.

Right, none of them have to worry about it - I'm sure WE'RE paying for the gas they put in their cars.
