They will soon bring it down to empty again

“So after 50 years of being virtually empty, I built up our oil reserves during my administration, and low energy prices, to 100% full. It’s called the Strategic National Reserves, and it hasn’t been full for many decades. In fact, it’s been mostly empty. It’s supposed to only be used for large-scale emergency or conflict. Now I see where Biden has just announced he’s going to take what we so carefully and magically built, and what will be a futile attempt to reduce oil and gasoline prices. They will soon bring it down to empty again. It just never ends!”

Our great President magically filled the reserves and now Biden is just stealing this incredible oil for the liberals in California. How could he undo what such a great leader so carefully put into place?

Mark Rakow

Magically? The Reserve gets filled continually. Trump claims he issued an Executive Order to fill it, which is just ridiculous. No other president has needed to do so, in order to get it filled. Why would this be any different?

But, just for the sake of argument, let’s say he did issue such an Order. Why would he wait until 2020, the last year of his presidency, to do so? I mean, seriously – it doesn’t take long to issue an Executive Order. Didn’t he think it was necessary? Did he forget?

The fact is, Trump is making this statement now, because it happens to be a current issue. It’s just another cheap, crappy Trumpy lie.

Tom Zahm

Saying that the reserve has been nearly empty for decades is just plain wrong.
See the graph at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:US_Strategic_Petroleum_Reserve.webp

Hey, why not put that “fact finding” skill to work at debunking all of the huge, outright lies of the current administration and their media. After all, they’re in power and doing everything possible to destroy the USA, such as tapping into the military’s emergency fuel source, for political points; eagerly letting countless anonymous people flood into our country every day, etc., etc.. Anything to say about them?

Laura

Anyhow, maybe Trump was referring to just one of the four storage sites being empty? Still, “what difference, at this point, does it make?” Right? Either way, if he’s wrong, he means no harm; he is a diehard USA proponent after all…the polar opposite of Biden and cohorts, who idiotically want to add one half of one percent of needed petroleum a day to the market. The only way to really bring down gas prices and keep them down is to open back up Trump’s USA oil industry, where all those well-paying jobs were had as well.

Laura

“one half of one percent” I wrote. Derp. It’s 5% not .5%. Oops I had a Biden moment. Anyway, the “Strategic Petroleum Reserves” stats should be confidential, shouldn’t they? What’s with these (new?) detailed charts exposing our emergency petroleum levels (as of Jan. 2022 in one of them) to the USA’s enemies? Something fishy is going on there.

So, gas prices would be closer to $10/gal under the Biden administration, if not for you???

Laura

What the $#%@ are you talking about? So insane. Gas prices in CA (the highest in the USA) were around $3/gallon during Trump’s wonderful leadership, and still would be (even lower?) today if not for the election steal by the “progressives” (WEF dictators). Gas was already way up before Biden’s Ukraine mess. Give it a rest, Renee.

Conspiracy theory AND fake news! Just another commie lib.

Mark Rakow

In the 47 years since it was established, the Strategic Petroleum Reserve – which, by the way, is the actual name – has NEVER been anywhere near empty. It reached what was, at the time, its maximum authorized capacity of 727 million barrels on December 27, 2009; shortly thereafter, capacity was reduced to 700 million barrels.

During the eight years of the Obama Administration, the Reserve never fell below 700 million barrels..

Never. Not even once.

However, starting in 2017, and for more than three years thereafter, the amount in the Reserve declined steadily. The Department of Energy Trump claims to have filled it, in 2020……..but, of course, he didn’t. Instead, the Reserve increased by only around 10 million barrels, to just over 640 million barrels, but then it quickly dropped again. As of December 21, 2021, the Reserve held 593.6 million barrels.

Since 2015, Congress has been selling the oil in the Reserve to fund the deficit, in unpublicized sales. In fact, there have been at least seven such sales since 2017, a total reduction of 132 million barrels.

Last November, the Biden Administration released 50 million barrels, to help address the anticipated rise in gasoline prices. On Thursday of this week, the Administration announced it would release another 30 million barrels, as a hedge against uncertainty and volatility brought about by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

I have attached a link to a website, which will clarify all of this – and fairly well debunk Trump’s all-too-familiar lies.

Whether what you and that government site say is true or not, those strategic oil reserves are for emergency use only, and before the Resident and cohorts took over the White House, there was nothing even approaching an emergency…just the opposite in fact, since Trump had our nation more energy independent than at any prior time in history, even selling crude oil to other countries.

There would be no deliberate “emergency” now if Biden and cohorts hadn’t shut down our burgeoning oil industry, killing a huge number of good jobs here, enriching Russia so they could invade Ukraine, causing the USA to beg for oil from Russia, Venezuela, etc., seriously gouging people’s finances to drive their cars, and ramping up inflation with everything costing more due to gas prices and all the crazy government spending of magical “money.” US citizens’ life savings are worth less each day under “Biden.”

Now your Resident wants to tap into our strategic oil reserve because of his own idiotic, deliberately destructive (to put it mildly) actions. But wait…

At roughly 700 million barrels of oil in the reserve, with the USA consuming about 20 million barrels a day, do the math. With your “president’s” plan to release a million barrels a day from the reserve, that’s 0.5% of what’s needed, and he/they think that will lower gas prices? At that rate the reserve would be empty after about 700 days (he says he’d stop after 180 days). Then what; we all get forced to buy expensive electric cars and need all those huge batteries, which is a supply and environmental nightmare of its own with all the electricity needed and the disposal of all those hazardous batteries, etc. It’s totally insane.

Your man is a huge disaster and you need to realize that. But then I’m sure you do, and you like it, because the USA needs to be brought to its knees and finished off, right? I suppose your lot think it’s also a great idea to have Putin and Xi negotiating a nuke deal with Iran for the USA? How extremely shameful.

0.5%? I had Biden moment, arrgh! Meant to say 5%.

Andy

I believe our President know more about this subject than you or anyone Else in the world

Laura

Exactly! His so-called “report” is written like an article, even worded like an opinion piece, by a Biden administration agency, and it’s written in the present telling us allegedly what the supply was years ago. What I would like to see is an actual report from the time frame when it was occurring. I checked the page info for the UNDATED PIECE and they last modified it at 1:23 pm today, Pacific time, about 28 minutes ago as of now, so it’s a “fluid” document, i.e. “progressive” propaganda. More importantly, that petroleum reserve is for emergency use especially for the military. Idiotically using it up for deceptive political gain seriously threatens our nation’s security, even more so than simply having that demented “president” and admin. in power. China, Iran and Russia surely are thrilled about the buffoon’s actions.

Mark Rakow

I would point out to you that the Department of Energy is NOT a Biden administration agency. To say so is to suggest that every employee therein is a political appointee. The fact is, the Department is an agency withn the Executive Branch of the Federal government, headed by the Secretary of Energy, who does happen to be a Biden appointee.

As for the data produced and authorized by the Energy Department, the very idea that it’s false, and/or is falsified, and thus intended to deliberately deceive the public, based on who is President – is simply appalling. And speaking of simply, one can simply go into Archives, to any date in those 47 years, and find that the data to be an exact match to that portrayed on the graph I attached.

Unless, of course, one is simply too ignorant to know how. Or simply too lazy to bother to do so. Or simply too dishonest to care to try.

The simple fact of the matter is that you’re ignorant, lazy, and dishonest. And you probably also need a bath. Being ignorant, lazy, and dishonest, that fact simply cannot be ignored.

Teru

Disgusting that the resident is using those reserves, and making it look like that will reduce prices. It won’t.

Mark Rakow

The average price per gallon has fallen by 8 cents in the past week. That may not sound like much, but it’s still a decline, and it’s not realistic to simply assume it’ll fall rapidly.

The point is, it did fall, and it fell for a reason. It doesn’t just happen by itself.

So, just to show how you lie, this is from the governments own web site:

Highest inventory – The SPR was filled to its then 727 million barrel authorized storage capacity on December 27, 2009; the inventory of 726.6 million barrels was the highest ever held in the SPR.

and don’t forget the past sales from the strategic reserve:

  • FY 2020 Mandated Sales: 9.85 million barrels
  • FY 2019 SPR Modernization Sale: 4.2 million barrels
  • FY 2019 Mandated Sales: 10.87 million barrels
  • FY 2018 SPR Modernization Sale: 4.74 million barrels
  • FY 2018 Mandated Sales: 14.17 million barrels
  • FY 2017 Mandated Sales: 10 million barrels
  • FY 2017 SPR Modernization Sale: 6.28 million barrels

so I’m having a problem understanding why you would believe this trash info? This corrupt administration stopped us from being energy self sufficient, NOW WE HAVE NO OIL!! This jerk off president him self said he’s using our reserves. Wake up!!

Who was the guy???

Who was the one that messed with the permitting inspecting… suddenly a huge problem happened???

We found a tap of fuel that could last for generations…

And it’s capped off… shut down.

The keystone is shut down… people I know lost their jobs because of that.

There is an oil reserve in Alaska that has more than enough fuel to drive the cost down to Pennies…

But suddenly we can’t be energy independent???

Why is that gas lighter???

Why is it we don’t have fuel???

Our natural gas alone could keep us running indefinitely… our coal could keep the country going for a very very long time…

Our hydro and nuclear are are unmatched.

Now what was that you were saying about a few million barrels of oil in a trillion barrel conversation???

Mr President to relate you have to own a business how stupid Sleepy Joey is on this reserve oil. If he releases it all it’s only enough for 2 or 3 weeks. And then you’re back where you started you cannot get out of this price jumping unless you produce in the United States.

It’s simple business the current produces want price high and keep the production low. The only way to control the price worldwide is through the United States production of fossil fuels. And it’s sad because the whole world‘s getting punished because of this moronic decision of Joe Biden, prices are up everywhere. So the US can help poor people worldwide by producing its own fossil fuels in a cleaner fashion and without the transport and pollution that goes with it

OK John cheer up (I am a real computer guy 40 years programming systems design)

They just started the downloads on Android a couple of days ago

There are so many people trying to get in, it looks like the southern border.

It will take a little while to build capacity and they are doing it right. Building a good product that people will want to use is the only way to go. And you know Trump… he does everything first class.

Slapping a piece of shit together is a waste of time. People will get on and not use it if it isn’t a good piece of software

The SPAC (DWAC) will be the common stock of the company and has been holding steady for weeks around $70-$80 (twice the price of Twitter) and will shoot to the moon when they really launch for downloads to PCs and so forth…

You should know by now not to believe the fake media.

The media and big tech are doing all they can to say negative things(lies) because Truth Social will wipe them out and a year or two down the road, they will be like the dodo bird.

Best stock investment you could make right now (buy the dips) is to buy DWAC (trump’s stock) and hang on to it, Also CFVI (Rumble) is another one you should get, around $12 share.

Hold steady man 🙂

They did not start the downloads on Android “a couple of days ago.” They have not started doing them yet at all, and it’s unknown when they may start.

DWAC isn’t exactly “holding steady,” as you claim. In the past 4 weeks, the per-share price has fallen 32% – in fact, just on Thursday alone, it fell 5.78% – closing at $64.51.

That said, a single month’s poor performance is hardly a fair assessment of the stock’s potential, let alone that of Truth Social. However, Bloomberg reports that downloads of the app have plunged 95%, from 170,000 per day in late February, to just 8,000 now.

Long waiting lists and the lack of an Android app notwithstanding, these numbers are a reflection of Truth Social’s appeal – or lack thereof.
