Re: Why Is Biden Selling SPR Reserves To China?
Its just that I was under the impression that strategic petroleum reserve fuel was earmarked to help lessen domestic costs of gasoline for Americans...not Chinese.

Re: Why Is Biden Selling SPR Reserves To China?
The reserve is crude oil, and - according to what I’ve read - if it’s being shipped anywhere it’s for refining because the US doesn’t have the spare capacity.

Re: Why Is Biden Selling SPR Reserves To China?
US refineries are at 98% capacity. The chinese are paying market price for the oil. As a commodity it effects prices no matter where it is refined and used. What the fuck is the problem?
This is faux outrage about something you and the other fearmongers know nothing about. I thought RWNJ's like you loved the market.

Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts

"God did it" is not an argument. It is an excuse for intellectual laziness.

If your viewpoint has merits and facts to back it up why would you have to lie?

And I didn't realize the U.S. president is a seller or buyer of oil, or other commodities for that matter. Does the Department of Commerce engage in commerce or regulate it?
