    Way to completely ignore the rest of his post.

    The Fox article cited in the OP mentions no other factors.

    We are producing more oil, which means we import less, which means more supply for the other nations of the world which means lower prices.

    The article doesn't have to be about other factors. Obama et al said drilling for oil would do nothing at all, that it was just a gimmick. He was wrong, but of course he doesn't know **** about it, he should have shut his mouth to start with. Obvious he also paid his advisers to blow smoke up his ass because there was only one answer that was acceptable and it wasn't going to include drilling for oil.

    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    And all OPEC has to do is scale back production and prices go right back up. You're also ignoring that demand is a principal factor in pricing. Demand, for whatever reason, is dropping.

    Nobody said drilling would do "nothing at all." However, the idea that increased production alone magically drops gas prices IS a gimmick. Oil is a global commodity with numerous factors in play.

    What he does is pick up the goalpost, and moves it over there. AKA Kobies dance.

    And we can ram up production, and it will do almost nothing.

    Yes, that is do to a Global Economical slow down, leading to a stale, possibly leading to a Massive Restructuring of currency and its backing and or Economical collapse.

    I think someone needs to look up what moving the goalposts means, since that ain't what I did. Yet another lie from you.
