On Tuesday, amidst mounting voter anger at ever-increasing gas prices, Barack Hussein Obama's administration released a report in which he claimed that gas production is at its highest since 2003. Here's an excerpt from the article:
Obama report: Oil imports dropping, domestic production highest since '03.
"Against the backdrop of gasoline prices rising at the pump in an election year, a new Obama administration report cites "significant progress" in...increasing domestic oil and gas production. U.S. crude oil production increased by an estimated 120,000 barrels a day last year over 2010..."
Someone has to tell Hussein to read the right reports from the right agencies before releasing his usual bullspit to the media. According to Hussein's own US Energy Information Administration, gasoline production is DOWN from 2003. Here's the chart from the site:
The chart paints a different picture, doesn't it? Oh, sure, this is just from federal lands, but it's the most solid data in either of the reports. Obama's report says "six different agencies" reported to him, but he doesn't name them and he doesn't say WHERE the oil production is so-called "increasing".
Obama's "report" is just another lie. What's good, though, is that he can't hide his culpability for gas prices. The People of America aren't as stupid as Obama wishes they were. They know the high prices are his fault. Here's why...Obama:
- Shut down oil rigs in the Gulf of Mexico.
- Placed a 5-year moratorium on drilling for oil in the Gulf, Alaska, and the Arctic.
- Rejected the Keystone XL Pipeline from Canada.
- Gave seven oil-rich Alaskan islands to Russia.
