This isn't the first time I've seen a "hip, hip, hooray, we just found all kinds of new oil we never knew existed until now" article. I'm of the opinion its firstly, oil they knew was there for a long time and secondly, its a part of an overall strategic PR effort designed to keep people excited about oil and nothing else with respect to transportation energy.

    Thanks for looking at the numbers.
    My pleasure...thanks for reading them.

    And I think your position makes sense.

    So, the answer to my question that I have twice asked you is apparently...you have no answer yourself.

    I thought you would at least offer something.

    But I guess I was right about you.

    You are like that suited guy on the Allstate commercials. You don't come here to reason or to try and find a solution to things...you just create mayhem.

    Which is why you are in my ignore list.

    We are done here.


    Have a nice day.
    You have nothing to offer either, besides your repeated surrenders

    I think one angle nobody here has discussed is the illegal immigration issue. Mexico may use this as a chip towards legalizing a lot of their citizens in the US. Mexican-American organizations may have more leverage than we think in the US. Would the US legalize illegal immigrants for cheaper oil?

    The cartel has more guns and better guns and they don't care how many of the soldiers get killed, or other people for that matter.

    If they come across something they can't confront directly, they go after families and assets.
    The cartels are just a bunch of lowlife clowns. They're not invincible.

    I doubt one would have anything to do with the other.

    I wish that were true.

    Look up who the Zetas are or were.

    And tax credits for what? Using biodiesel? Never been such a tax credit AFAIK. Producing it? Perhaps, but since producers can make more from it than oil refiners can with oil that doesn't make much sense. Any diesel vehicle made after 1986 has the right hoses for it (biodiesel is more corrosive than petrodiesel, that's why the engines run cleaner and last longer).
    The tax credits were for the waste material which is what I have been talking about the whole time and yes there used to be a .50 tax credit on every gallon of the waste material produced so it could be used in utility companies and other energy users with liquid tank farms that had heat tracing and agitation. With the tax credit gone the industry is now a loser again unless they want to invest in the high dollar equipment to clean it up and sell it on the open market to compete with virgin material.

    I used to manage this waste from 6 different producing facilities now only 2 of thos 6 are in operation. As I stated earlier, in this area they can't survive without heavy government support.
