Re: TIME TO GET REAL!!!!

They still have 87 rigs out of commission since Katrina. One of the biggest rigs out in the Gulf will be back online at the end of May .Gulf oil production is still down 20%

Lets be real about this though. The US production only accounts for 20% of our usage and you say 20% is still out of commision. well that is ok except 20% of 20% is 5%

So 5% is not that big a deal when the Saudi's have already made up that difference and more. The real problem is the oil companys have not put repairing all the rigs on top priority except the ones that could pose enviromental damage.

See they are raking in billions with the low output so why increase output and lower profit margins with increased production.

You have to look at it from the greedy monger eyes to understand why there not urgently fixing the 87 oil and natural gas platforms in the Gulf of Mexico. I have a couple of friends who work in Oil Rig construction and they are idle right now.

UPDATE We are led to believe that all 87 damaged rigs were production rigs and that is absolutely false. 20 of the rigs are gone turned over and sunk somewhere in the gulf. That leave 67 rigs which only a 1/3 are production rigs pumping oil or natural gas, the other 2/3 are exploration and drilling rigs which account for ZERO output of oil. So they are not even a part of the shortage problem

Unfortunately I have to use a car to get to school. Busses don't run late enough for when i'm out of class.

Re: TIME TO GET REAL!!!!

I feel terrible for truck drivers. I work at a truck shop, ill be in the shop, and when trucks pull up for fuel, i fuel them. Ive filled up a few tractors that took 280-300 gallons of diesel. Diesel where i work is dirt cheap at 2.69, but elsewhere is 3.05 or so.

Re: TIME TO GET REAL!!!!

Yea, but only feel bad for the ones that run for themselves and not the corps. Most of the shipping contracts have fuel cost built in.

So start feeling bad for us in few more months.

Re: TIME TO GET REAL!!!!

Myself and a few friends used over 100 gallons of gas this weekend to move someone. That is one ridiculous bill. Sure, you can say conserve fuel, but sometimes you have to drive, no other choice. Advice I'll give you though, don't get the big truck from u-haul, that 454 gets under 8 mpg.

Well if you are going to rent a Uhaul with a 454 you deserve to get raped by fuel cost. Never rent from Uhaul get a Penske with a diesel.


Actually there are reasons to need to drive. I mean if you have to move you have to move. Until we have transporters and can beam things from place to place we have required driving

Ha, he didn't wanna spring for the Penske b/c it costs so much more. That diesel would have been nice in the mountains though.
