Hello! Would someone please explain to the Dumbocrats that "Current high prices are not caused by oil shortages...The US should remain patient."

And “The Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR) is there for times of emergency and supply disruptions. It is imperative it be available for a serious supply disruption down the road,”

The refineries already have more crude than they need for domestic demand and are exporting gasoline. Releasing crude from the reserves will just mean more gasoline will be exported.

The reduction in gas prices, e.g., 10 cents a gallon, will not have enough of an impact to make a difference!

It might help some, but regulating Big Oil and Wall Street will have a lasting effect.

"This most-recent run-up in prices is primarily the result of fear driving oil markets,” . The release of the oil will not remove the fear factor.

So what will we do when there is a real emergency if these bozos keep tapping this reserve for short term political gain?

there is plenty of supply.. the massive exports should be taxed so there is a financial incentive to sell it in the US for less.. obozo wont be a leader on this issue either

It will not work. Is just a political more by both parties. We have to replace the reserves at a higher price. We need better MPG and good alternatives for fuel and transportation.

I thought oil reserves held by the Federal Government were strategic for war. Maybe congressal Democrats should cut the White House travel budget as a show of resolution.

Why don't those same Democrats do something to really help. They should take 30% of their salary and buy the gasoline for the USA citizens they claim to be working for in Washington.

The release last year actually stopped the upward trending in prices for many weeks. Even when they started going up again it was nowhere near what it was. So in a way it seems to have worked just not like what most would want...

When oil from the stockpile is released, it is bid and goes at market price. This oil does NOT lower any domestic gas prices.

Didn't work for long the last time. Why would it be any different this time? How much does it cost to replace the released oil?

I'd hate to see this method become a habit...
Energy prices soar, we run back to the reserves
Replenish reserves, prices soar again
Replenish reserves, price crashes
Government is left with the bill

Kind of like a casino

Or other countries catch on to our habit, and suddenly decide to totally cripple the U.S by stopping supply
Suddenly no supply, no reserves, oil producing countries take control of the global market
