    The president apparently talked to his good buddy Mohammed Bone Saw yesterday and now oil prices are up 25%. A nice win for the American people who were getting frustrated with low gas prices.

    I’m sure those American oil field workers are more worried about their jobs than saving a few pennies at the pump. I like low prices as much as the next guy, but I don’t mind paying a fair price to keep people working.

    There are some here that would like to raise taxes on gas to keep people from using as much. Seem like some are never happy.

    Personally I'd look at the number of American oil field workers vs. the number of American gas consumers before deciding whether a "jobs program" for the former paid for by the latter was worthwhile.

    I'm wondering how a market share war between Russia and Saudi Arabia and the subsequent price swings that causes is the fault of the American government. Can you explain?

    There seems to be a little bit more to it than that. https://markets.businessinsider.com/commodities/news/power-line-sunrun-layoffs-oil-tsunami-absolutely-no-one-wants-2020-4-1029063473
