Expect prices to drop to 65 per barrel. Dumb americans are producing shale oil like cray.

(Sure I know those aren't crude oil import costs and taxes etc but yeah).

America barely taps into it's own oil, typically importing it. Europe also imports, doesn't mean our price should be so many times higher.

What?
A country that uses its own resources simply is not getting the value that it can get on a world stage. Canada exports almost all its oil, there is no money in selling it to only Canadians. Canada sells imported fuel to Canadians.

Europe is not an exporter, they are users. They should have to pay a high price for something they don't have. That is the way this world works all over. If you don't have it, expect to pay for it, and that is not just talking about oil. Back to my Japan beef example.

You need to sleep for several more days.

We've dealt with upwards to 6 USD per gallon for a long period of time. When Americans see the price of gas drop to 2.2 USD per gallon we're ecstatic. Though, My state doesn't have it that low, we're at 3 USD per gallon. They're predicting it'll go back up after elections, it usually does.

Also it wasn't until lsat year that America domestically processed more oil than it imported. It imports a LOT, and it's very spread out.

The UK imports most its oil from Norway, which is closer than Florida is to New York. Let alone the Middle East. Sure we're buying it then, but still.. doesn't equal such a huge difference between prices, nor explain why pissy americans complain it about it for their own issues.

I'm an American and I'm not complaining about the price of gas.

They blame they cant afford **** because gas prices have risen, and that living costs in America are so high compared to the rest of the world (they're not).


Edit:
I also just learnt the UK uses more domestic oil than the USA.

During the bush administration the USA was importing 70% of oil. During that same time the UK was mostly using its own with only a small fraction of imports.

During 2013 the UK produced 70% of its oil per day. Importing the remaining. Again lower imports than the USA.

Why all the hatred towards us I just don't understand? I'm offended. You were like this with Ahmed and his Egyptians. If your country is so much better why even take the trip to America, let alone live in it? You're saying we're pissy? pufffffhh!! speak for yourself. You've yet to say any positive things about us. Why bother living here?! What didn't your country have that mine did?! shesshh..:confused:

Lols.

6 bucks per gallon is still cheap :p

I guess don't have to deal or do business with the kind of Americans I do. One's I speak to are seriously always complaining. Not saying they're all like that, they're not.. but loads are.. especially the ones who think the world outside America looks like North Korea or Russia (mostly the idiots I deal with).

I say I'm from the UK and they're like "well now you're in the greatest country god ever made".. I'm like **** off. lol

You make it look like I'm running a backstreet gang with "my Egyptians". That girl is dumb as **** and clouded by emotions, I wouldn't take her country vs country statements seriously if I were you.
