President Trump Points Out Low Gas Prices – Wants Them Even Lower…

President Trump is drawing attention to something many people are overlooking.  Smart tweet to draw attention to gas prices.  Good strategy to highlight “Winning”.

    I would love to see them even lower as well. I can just barely remember when they were below $1/gallon. That was so long ago.

    Refining capacity is a big deal. In the past they could not get permits for new construction so all they could do was expand existing capacity. At some point you run out of room. Also, low prices would hurt the fracker’s but with the expanded export policy this will not be as big of an issue. Overall MAGA.

      Correct. If, scratch that, WHEN new refineries are brought online, a stable, low cost of gas can be expected for decades to come.

        If only we could get Canada and Alberta to build a huge refinery near the tar sands. Perhaps the jobs for 1st citizens could help. Refine the bitumen in situ leave the crap in situ, for use later when that becomes economical. Do not throw that stuff into the gulf of Mexico! : hard to get back! From Canada ship only “good stuff” through existing pipelines where “leaks shall not be tolerated”, for economic reasons. That refinery built correctly, could also provide Alberta and British Columbia with clean, cheep, electrical power as co-generation becomes viable at that scale!

  3. Except here in California. Gas taxes will be increasing to 80-cents or more (total fed and state) by 2019. California gas sales tax of 2.25% not only taxes the cost of the gas but also applies to the federal gas tax and the state excise tax.

    I was 9 years old and the gas was 26 cents a gallon…1971.

    $1.78 in Upstate South Carolina today.

    Remember when every Middle East crisis or impending hurricane automatically made the gas prices go up? How about the “peak oil” scare?

    The ability for just anybody to get in their car and drive to anywhere in this very large country annoys the lefties greatly. Low gas prices allow more people to have “freedom” to travel. the lefty idea for the peasants is packed in inefficient buses or commuter trains.

    President Trump is working to bring Freedom back to Americans. He is having to fight the lefties, D-Rats, Rinos, media and criminals in black robes to do so.

    I hope after President Trump gets the foundation of Freedom re-established in America, he starts repairing the Judicial branch by removing judges who legislate from the bench; a role and power never intended by the Constitution and founders of the USA.

    • Fl Guy, Part of your equation is not up to Trump. It’s up to US to elect those who understand the importance of impeaching those judges who rule on cases where there is no constitutional authority. WE, ultimately, have to be the ones to understand the limits of the federal government.

        The biggest problem is past rulings by the Supreme Court that did away with jury trials.

        ….As Thomas Jefferson put it to Tom Paine in a 1789 letter, “I consider trial by jury as the only anchor ever yet imagined by man, by which a government can be held to the principles of its constitution.” …. http://prorev.com/juries.htm

        This right to a jury trial is critical because it allows citizens the final say on laws and regulations. Therefore it was absolutely necessary for the ruling class to demolish this right.

        Jury nullification is decentralization of political power. It is the people’s most important veto in our constitutional system. The jury vote is the only time the people ever vote on the application of a real law in real life. All other votes are for hypotheticals. SEE: (wwwDOT)fija.org/docs/JG_state_language_on_jury_nullification.pdf

        Here is how the politicians have gotten around the US Constitution to make sure citizens are denied their right to a trial AND denied citizens THE RIGHT to judge both the accused AND THE LAW.

        […]The Seventh Amendment, passed by the First Congress without debate, cured the omission by declaring that the right to a jury trial shall be preserved in common-law cases… The Supreme Court has, however, arrived at a more limited interpretation. It applies the amendment’s guarantee to the kinds of cases that “existed under the English common law when the amendment was adopted,” […]

        The right to trial by jury is not constitutionally guaranteed in certain classes of civil cases that are concededly “suits at common law,” particularly when “public” or governmental rights are at issue and if one cannot find eighteenth-century precedent for jury participation in those cases. Atlas Roofing Co. v. Occupational Safety & Health Review Commission (1977). Thus, Congress can lodge personal and property claims against the United States in non-Article III courts with no jury component. In addition, where practice as it existed in 1791 “provides no clear answer,” the rule is that “[o]nly those incidents which are regarded as fundamental, as inherent in and of the essence of the system of trial by jury, are placed beyond the reach of the legislature.” Markman v. Westview Instruments (1996). In those situations, too, the Seventh Amendment does not restrain congressional choice.

        In contrast to the near-universal support for the civil jury trial in the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, modern jurists consider civil jury trial neither “implicit in the concept of ordered liberty,” Palko v. State of Connecticut (1937), nor “fundamental to the American scheme of justice,” Duncan v. Louisiana (1968).

      Saudi Arabia is smart! That is why they are investing $110 billion in military hardware from us as well as an additional $300 billion into projects in the US as well as having our country invest in Saudi Arabia. They plan on moving away from oil by 2030 under King Salman’s heir, Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

      From the article linked above:

      Just hours ago the Saudi Arabia’s cabinet has agreed on a broad-based economic reform plan, known as Vision 2030, revealing how the oil-reliant state plans to diversify its economy over the next 14 years.

      Prince Mohammed bin Salman, the deputy crown prince, said on Monday that the country was building up the its Public Investment Fund to become a major player in global markets. He said Saudi Arabia was restructuring its housing ministry to increase the supply of affordable housing, and creating a “green card” system within five years to give expatriates long-term residence.

      Once again our President was brilliant in going to Saudi Arabia for his first foreign trip!

    Now that we’re able to produce enough oil to become a net exporter, every Middle East “scare” that would previously drive up prices overnight and worry folks about supply, they will be looking to buy from us. DJT is putting the United States in a fantastic position with this policy.

    What’s more, OPEC will have diminishing leverage. They used to just cut supply to boost price and increase revenues. Now they will have to pump and sell more to increase revenues because cutting OPEC supply won’t have near the same impact on price as it did before.

When you have a commodity like gas, that everybody needs, any offset on the supply side is more than paid up for by the money saved on the consumer side in my opinion. It doesn’t work like that on everything, but gas, that’s used by everybody?

        Think about it this way. Prices are half what they were. Everybody in the country just got a 30 or 40 dollar raise, a week.

        Just my opinion, E C but I think if that $2 or so is going into the pockets of OUR producers (instead of “ferigners”) and supporting OUR taxes, then there’s gonna be investment in industry and investment in manufacturing expansion (instead of investment in spreading terror). The difference is where the money from your pocket is going.

        I think if there’s less money going to “conflict oil” producers – and more going to “local” producers and refiners – then there’s gonna be more money going into OUR infrastructure and OUR educational systems – instead of investments in gold-plated Daimlers in the desert. Less for Al-Jasneezya network and MORE for our beloved Sundance (and channels like TCTH and OANN).

        There actually is a feedback loop from TCTH and a more hopeful outlook among Treepers. When Treepers are more hopeful, they help others more and thus more people have money to spend and the economy is benefited (lol! No, I can’t prove that).

        What I’m saying is that when prices get low, people buy more. More taxes are paid and our “over-worked” (yeah, but they’re LOVING it!) producers and refiners deliver more and stockholders invest more. People buy more groceries and people buy more houses and people buy more clothes and appliances and more cars… to use more fuel.

        So, when you have a chance, buy a tank-full even if the price is below $2.00. And grin and offer a one-finger salute toward Mecca. But don’t be upset if the oil-sheiks don’t notice. They’re awfully busy trying to figure out how to sell all of those gold-plated Benz’s.

            E C, I think the food prices not going down also ties into Sundance’s article on how multinational companies have bought up a lot of food production capability in our country, and thus can influence the price independent, somewhat, of supply and demand and other market forces, say gas prices. Sorry I don’t have that link on hand, I think he posted it within the last month and has expounded upon it a few times. I think this might potentially be the reason for the disconnect you are seeing between falling gas prices and the steady (or rising) costs of food.

          Why the ‘Local Multiplier Effect’ Always Counts

          This refers to how many times a dollar bill circulates within a community before heading overseas. This has a direct effect on a community. That same dollar you pay to the farmer for his tomatoes, he then uses to pay the roofer to patch his roof who pays the mechanic to fix his truck…

          The other concept that is not taught to us Deplorables is Velocity of Money
          From WIKI
          “The term “velocity of money” (also “The velocity of circulation of money”) refers to how fast money passes from one holder to the next. It can refer to the income velocity of money, which is the frequency at which the average same unit of currency is used to purchase newly domestically-produced goods and services within a given time period.[3] In other words, it is the number of times one unit of money is spent to buy goods and services per unit of time.[…]
          Consumer confidence and business confidence directly affects the velocity of money. When people are confident they open their wallets and buy that new widget instead of stashing gold under the bed which causes the economy to stagnate.

          These are very important for us to not only understand but to make sure others understand if we want people to appreciate what President Trump is doing.

    Adjusting for inflation, our 1.99 gas is even lower than what it was worth when gas used to be 1.99.

    Tried pointing this out to someone on twitter and got a crying laugh emoticon in response.

    I guess they don’t understand inflation?
    Or am I missing something?

      You’re dead on, M33, don’t worry about those that are too blind to see it.

      Another point worth making is summer blends of fuel are more expensive to make, and are priced accordingly. So for July…. this is REALLY low. Wait until September rolls around and watch where the gas prices are.

      M33,

      My husband likes to point out a good hand tailored suit for men cost the same … IN GOLD… as it did in Roman times.

      Here is an article to back it up
      http://www.mining.com/true-price-and-value-of-gold-a-massive-scam-or-the-cost-of-a-suit-12638/

      […]historically the price of gold has been equal to the price of a suit for a well-dressed man. It cost an ounce of gold to buy a toga for a Roman senator; it cost ounce of gold to buy the outfit Lord Capulet wore at that fateful ball where Juliet met Romeo; it cost my father $35 for a good suit when he was a miner of gold at $35 an ounce.[…]

      Right now the cost of gold is ‘high’ perhaps because the BRICS countries have been buying up the supply.

  24. Not sure I’m buying that “lowest price for gas in 10 years” crap! When Oblamo took office the price of a gallon of regular gas was $1.79 and there’s more than a few sites online that will verify that. So Trump told another one!

    Would not be surprised if saudi arabia orders another 9-11 type of attack if gas prices go lower, they are capable of anything, remember only arabs can live the high life.

      They be in tough spot. Need $100 oil per barrel to survive and if they not careful will need to accelerate their own defense systems much sooner than expected.

    I would think that while lower gas prices are bad for companies, it will be good for the avg American. Either way in order for our economy to start working for the 98%, there has to be an adjustment that won’t be pain free. Our economy is so out of whack where only the 1-2% can truly succeed and get ahead while the 98% struggle to get by, have 2 income households, go into debt, live off credit cards etc.etc.etc. if the economy is to return and help the middle class the cost of living needs to go down….deflation. We need deflation and lower gas prices can help that along. A little deflation with increasing wages brings back the middle class.

    If this means my 401k goes down then so be it. How is it the majority of homes had single incomes and now just to survive you need two if not more. I think Trump knows all of this and his energy policy is a big FU to the status quo of the past 20-30 years.
