How was oil production so high during Obama's administration? Notice that fatso completely dodged this question 3 times already.
What was "so high" about it during Obama admin years?

U.S. Field Production of Crude Oil (1000 barrels per day)


Trump years kicked ass on Obama years, and still do during Biden's so far (and likely will for a while).

And it actually went down in 2016 before Nov 2016 election.

This chart above speaks volumes on the subject, when it comes to U.S. domestic oil production.

West of the Atlantic. East of the ICW.
Its amazing how the erBB Leftists dodge any questions about the left's efforts to hamstring domestic energy production now that gasoline prices and inflation have made the topic radioactive politically. Why won't they just own it?

You keep repeating false information and then expect the other side to answer to your falsehoods. Seems to be a go-to tactic for you.
Oil production rose exponentially during the Obama years.


The only reason its so high during the Chump and Biden terms is because it was already at record highs ok the tails of the Obama years.


THANKS OBAMA

It all comes down to one simple word.

Incentive.

One admin provides it.

The other takes it away.
no it doesn't....

the current gas prices do not come down to one simple word.

it is multivariate

I mean....my lord...you post the data and ignore that production was UP 7% during Obama's first term and 70% by the time he left office while you guys are trying to simultaneously make arguments that he regulated the industry to death.

your brain is fkn broken, Surfdog

just constantly embarrassing yourself with your own fkn data

reduction in production stemmed from NEGATIVE oil prices during covid, drastically reduced demand, and the fact that producers decided to cut production to artificially inflate profits to make up the difference

this has been established time and time again in this very thread with citation

compounding this, the gas companies have decoupled prices at the pump from the underlying world market price for the underlying commodity.

this has also been established time and time again in this very thread with citation

you're not even making an argument anymore...you just flood the zone with more and more stupid

holy fk

Round and round you go in order to never admit when democrat policies or politicians are failures.
Crude oil production increased 80% while Obama was president.

How did oil production get so high during Obama's admin?

Ya, Obama brought USA oil production back to......

Bush 1 years in 1988. Woohooo!

Meanwhile we had 70 million more people since 1988 driving autos and using even more plastics.

It only took 6 years into his term (and almost 26 years later from Bush 1) to do it. And with the majority Repubs in House/Senate pushing him along. Clinton and Bush 2 were too busy sucking Saudi gushers to get production in the USA back up. Cheap oil was cheap oil.

And yes, oil and gas price increases are multivariate indeed.

But Biden's policies, agenda and attitude towards USA oil production are not helping bring prices down anytime soon. And that's how they like it, and don't really care if they come back down. They love this sh*t. Take it and like it.

It's the only way they can finally get any halfway support for the not-ready-for primetime Green New Deal policies.

If he was smart and really wanted to help subdue high inflation and a real recession, he'd take all recent imposed new regs, restrictions and anti-oil attitude and stuff them down AOC's throat. But no. Not now, not ever.

It would help the poor and struggling lower-middle class tremendously. It's going to get worse before we have even a glimmer of relief. But no, we need to stick to this forced "transition" to nowhere, no matter how much it hurts the economy and the struggling in the near and long term.

November is going to be brutal for the Green Flash Dems.

Bush 1 was not president in 1988.

Why did the Bush's both oversee decreased oil production? I thought they were big oil "drill baby drill" guys.

Can you explain this?
