Eh, without being political:Because in past posts, you have tried to put the blame on someone for the higher prices today VS last year. The reason fuel prices dropped last year were due to a worldwide pandemic, not some genius policies that were enacted. Now that prices are back to the same level they were two years ago and rising, you speak like some benefit is being taken away from you. The pandemic was(is) not a benefit. However, you and I both benefitted off of the world's misfortune and the economic impact of it last year in the forms of lower fuel prices in your case and lower spending needs in my case.
Commodity prices are rising because demand is rising as the pandemic is easing and supply can't keep up.
A passion for "drill here, drill now, a desire to compete in global fossil fuel markets, and a desire to complete pipelines in the US.
Support for reduced emissions (Paris climate accord), not fighting the Russian, European pipeline, and heavy support for green national policy.
We all have beliefs of which is correct, but, to try and make it sound like the policy differences don't impact price is a real stretch.
Certainly price is supply demand, reduce or make supply more difficult, leave demand the same, and you get higher prices.
I love to hear others opinions and ideas, I know mine aren't the only way. But I do wish folks would understand and own the good and bad that come from what we want and how we vote.
