Ha! Your ^^link^^ proves my point about record higher oil production from late 2018 thru early 2020.Facts Matter: Oil production under Biden is on par with that of Chump.
U.S. gas prices hit a high on March 8, and President Joe Biden warned Americans they may pay even more at the pump afterwww.politifact.com
It's interesting how much Barry increased oil production. Facts Matter.
It's interesting how oil production declined under the Bush's and Clinton.Facts matter.
"Oil production in the U.S. in 2021 was on par with 2020 production and exceeded yearly production from 2017-18, data shows." (conveniently dodges the late 2018 thru early 2020 period).
"Correction (March 14, 2022): This post was corrected to show that crude oil production in Biden’s first year was higher than in (first) two of four years under Trump, not three. The rating is unchanged."
Oil production declined during Bush I, Clinton and Bush II because we were addicted to sucking the Saudi's dry for oil. They were the largest single country producer back then. We had oil here all along, but it was too cheap to pay for new exploration.
Saying oil production in the US in 2021 is on par with Covid destroyed production of most of 2020 is no big claim, by any stretch of the truth. My dog could dig for oil better than any domestic suppliers, when oil was priced at a dollar or even negative price for a bit in 2020.
You were claiming "domestic oil production is at record highs" now, WHERE IS IT?
U.S. Field Production of Crude Oil (1000 barrels per day)
So where is all this supposed "record oil production" you keep claiming under Biden admin?
You already had to backtrack to post a link saying "Biden is on par with Trump". Which omits the late 2018 thru early 2020 period I mentioned in my post above. He's "on par" with early months of Trump admin, and that's it.
Notice the production of each prez period. Obama increased during his term, but nowhere near today's production, and actually dropped off in last months of his presidency. Production increased more during Obama's 2nd term due to Repub majorities in Congress, lifting the reigns off of it. Economy was petering out/stagnating during his last 2 years in office. Obamacare was taking its toll.
Trump had production increase steadily too, to actual record production levels in 2019, until Covid-19 destroyed the economy and oil markets with it from May 2020 onward.
Oil production during Biden's term has basically stagnated since taking office, and nowhere near production under Trump admin last 2 years. At least Biden's keeping one of his campaign promise claims (reducing domestic oil production).
