The US prices are still low compared to most places in the world.

Another factor is that many states increased the gas tax last summer when revenues dropped from reduced consumption.  A lot of use-based taxes went up...tolls, service fees, permits...all under the heading of COVID.  Very few government workers lost their jobs, and now the fed has provided bailout money to states.  Any guess on how many tax increases will be rolled back?

Sorry...but Kurt is complaining about canceling the pipeline, while simultaneously suggesting the Trump created energy independence for the US?  If we're independent, why do we need Canadian oil?  He must realize the pipeline is owned by Canadians?

It's amazing how rugged individuals who cherish freedom and independence will complain about a few pennies at the pump and the loss of some jobs.

What's amazing about yesterday is that both Putin and China pandered to the Trump crowd.  They literally used the same type of arguments against the new administration that Trump would have made.  They see how successful lies and propaganda have been at distracting the US...how Republicans won't do anything to support Biden for fear of losing the base...and they are pulling the same levers.

Trump's damage to the US will last decades, and if we're not careful, it will become permanent.

But if we have to pay the same price as the rest of the world, then why are we spending all this money on our military all over the place to defend oil interests?

Why $4-a-Gallon Gas May Be Coming Your Way This Summer

The oil industry, known for boom-bust cycles, is resisting the temptation to pump more oil — for now.


...
An accelerating rollout of vaccines in the United States is expected to turbocharge the American economy this spring and summer, encouraging people to travel, shop and commute. In addition, President Biden’s pandemic relief package will put more money in the pockets of consumers, especially those who are still out of work.

Even before Congress approved that legislation, oil and gasoline prices were rebounding after last year’s collapse in fuel demand and prices. Gas prices have risen about 35 cents a gallon on average over the last month, according to the AAA motor club, and could reach $4 a gallon in some states by summer. While overall inflation remains subdued, some economists are worried that prices, especially for fuel, could rise faster this year than they have in some time. That would hurt working-class families more because they tend to drive older, less efficient vehicles and spend a higher share of their income on fuel.

In recent weeks oil prices have surged to over $65 a barrel, a level that would have seemed impossible only a year ago, when some traders were forced to pay buyers to take oil off their hands. Oil prices fell by more than $50 a barrel in a single day last April, to less than zero.

That bizarre day seems to have become seared into the memories of oil executives. The industry was forced to idle hundreds of rigs and throttle many wells shut, some for good. Roughly 120,000 American oil and gas workers lost their jobs over the last year or so, and companies are expected to lay off 10,000 workers this year, according to Rystad Energy, a consulting firm.

Yet, even as they are making more money thanks to the higher prices, industry executives pledged at a recent energy conference that they would not expand production significantly. They also promised to pay down debt and hand out more of their profits to shareholders in the form of dividends.


...
Scott Sheffield, chief executive of Pioneer Natural Resources, a major Texas producer, predicted that American production would remain flat at 11 million barrels a day this year, compared with 12.8 million barrels immediately before the pandemic took hold.

Even the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries and allied producers like Russia surprised many analysts this month by keeping several million barrels of oil off the market. OPEC’s 13 members and nine partners are pumping roughly 780,000 barrels of oil a day less than at the beginning of the year even though prices have risen by 30 percent in recent months.


“The discipline to support higher prices is needed for the recovery of their economies,” said René Ortiz, a former secretary general of OPEC who is now Ecuador’s energy minister, adding that many of the group’s members needed higher oil prices to balance their budgets and service their debts. “Their reserves have been drained.”


...


As always, tensions in the Middle East could determine what happens to oil prices.

In recent weeks drone attacks on energy facilities in Saudi Arabia sent shudders through oil markets. While Houthi rebels in Yemen claimed credit for the operation, the drones may well have been launched by Iran, which is allied with the rebels, according to Saudi security officials.

“The heating up of what’s commonly understood as a proxy war between Iran and Saudi Arabia in Yemen is just adding to the bullish oil price fever,” said Louise Dickson, a Rystad Energy oil markets analyst.

I look at it, not as getting something for nothing but as an insurance payout. Sure, you paid into the system and will pay to cover the costs, but like any insurance, government covid relief is designed to cover the costs of unforeseen events that can't be handled on an individual basis by most people.

The conservative climate fear-mongering begins over Biden's Keystone XL order:

Those 10,000 construction jobs? They don’t actually exist

Some people may likely lose their jobs as a result of Biden’s order on Wednesday. TC Energy announced suspension of the project following the permit revocation, and Keystone XL President Richard Prior told the Associated Press that “over 1,000 jobs, the majority unionized, will be eliminated in the coming weeks.”  This is not technically a layoff announcement, as the WSJ claimed, and it is nothing to be celebrated.
But it’s also not something that should be exaggerated for political gain.



The 10,000 union jobs Republicans and the fossil fuel industry claim Biden killed were, first and foremost, hypothetical.


Keystone XL was still awaiting permits in several states before it could begin construction, according to the Montana Free Press, and other permits are still tied up in legal challenges. TC Energy also isn’t directly employing Keystone XL pipeline workers; it issued grants in October to construction companies to do so. There’s little evidence that those companies have employed many people so far.


The jobs Keystone XL were eventually going to support were also mostly temporary—one-to-two year construction jobs, at most. “Once Keystone is completed, only 35 permanent employees would be needed to operate the pipeline along with 15 temporary contractors,”  reported back in 2017. “So, the Keystone XL isn't expected to be a boom for the job market by any stretch.”



The pipeline was expected to be a boom, however, for the climate crisis. “Emissions associated with the production, refining, and combustion of the tar sands in Keystone XL would have resulted in 168 million metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions each year (equivalent to the emissions from 35.5 million internal combustion vehicles)—emissions we simply cannot afford to lock in,” wrote Anthony Swift at the Natural Resources Defense Council.


The Biden administration rejected Keystone XL’s permit because it asserts the enormous economic consequences of climate change outweigh the economic benefits of 35 new permanent jobs.

Facts, not propaganda soundbites:
1. Biden wants to entice companies to return to US or closer to US for production to get our supply chain to stronger efficiency and stability.
2. Federal Contractors will now use guidelines that incorporate American made materials - not foreign products.
(Pssst, corporations were STILL going offshore and to Mexico during Trump's term)

3. TAX LOOPHOLES have been closed in this recent Covid Package, upping some taxes on those who earn $170,000.00 a year or more,
   NOT TO BE CONFLATED with the actual wealth tax to be placed on income over $400,000.00
Please note that GOPsneaked Tax Cuts into the first two Covid packages in 2020) https://www.washingtonpost.com...
Dec. 22, 2020 at 7:27 p.m. CSTCongress on Monday unveiled a 5,593-page spending bill and then voted on it several hours later, with lawmakers claiming urgent action was needed to rescue an ailing economy ravaged by the coronavirus pandemic.
But tucked in the bill was over $110 billion in tax breaks that strayed far from the way the bill was marketed to many Americans. These giveaways include big tax cuts for liquor producers, the motorsports entertainment sector and manufacturers of electric motorcycles.

4.  One Ford Plant moving to Mexico is a business decision by the Company before Biden has had a chance to sweeten Corporate pots to encourage them to stay here. His policies in two months did not push gas prices up (TX refineries froze) or push companies to move offshore.

The U.S. Government is neither Instant Pudding or a Porche; it does not turn on a dime. Its more like the Titanic, the previous administration's influence doesn't immediately dissipate the moment the new Prez steps over the threshold.

and #5:

Day 46 without a Capitol Insurrection and Police Beatings and Deaths.
