President Biden has warned us that U.S. sanctions against Russia, for the invasion of Ukraine, will drive up prices at the gas pump. 

Actually, a lot more than prices at the pump will go up.

In today's world, we use oil for so many different things, plus the fuel needed to produce and ship those things, the price of EVERYTHING will go up much higher than we have seen so far.



Before Biden took office we had low energy prices and America was an exporter of coal, natural gases, and oil.

Currently, the president is making it harder to extract energy and ship it, especially pipe it, across the county.

CALL ME INSANE, BUT WHAT IF we went back to doing what we were doing before Biden took office?

Imagine what would happen if the government got out of the way and allowed the energy industry to produce RIGHT HERE in our own backyard?


FROM CNN BUSINESS: Move over, Saudi Arabia and Russia. America now has more untapped oil than any other country on the planet.

That's according to a new report from Rystad Energy that estimates the U.S. is sitting on an incredible 264 billion barrels of oil reserves. It includes oil in existing fields, new projects, recent discoveries as well as projections in undiscovered fields.

Thanks to the shale oil boom, the U.S. is now sitting on more oil reserves than Russia, which Rystad estimates as having 256 billion barrels of untapped oil. The next-richest countries in terms of oil after that are: Saudi Arabia (212 billion), Canada (167 billion), Iran (143 billion) and Brazil (120 billion).

The state of Wyoming alone has enough oil, gas & coal to lower the cost of... EVERYTHING!

Texas will want in on the action as will North Dakota.

There is LOADS of energy in California and off the coast of California if the state would let us at it.

DEAR LORD do you have any idea how much oil is in the Gulf Of Mexico?

What about Alaska? They could power us for generations.

Call me crazy, and I know some will, but we really do not need Russian energy to power America. We have it right here.

Many European countries depend on Russian oil and natural gas. America could make a lot of money selling to those countries as long as the sanctions are in place.

And extracting and refining American energy, in America, means JOBS and a STRONG ECONOMY!

Now, why hasn't Biden thought of that?
