Biden, Chevron chief trade sharp words over gas prices

Biden, Chevron chief trade sharp words over gas prices

In a pointed back and forth, the head of Chevron complained Tuesday that President Joe Biden has vilified energy firms at a time when gasoline prices are at near record levels and the president responded that the oil company CEO was being “mildly sensitive.”

The president in recent weeks has criticized oil producers and refiners for maximizing profits and making “more money than God,” rather than increasing production in response to higher prices as the economy recovers from the pandemic and feels the effects of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

Brian Crossman: Now hiring!

Brian Crossman: Now hiring!

Hey everybody! It’s time to start jumping up and down like idiots! The patch is busy and everyone is hiring! Outstanding! Let’s go make the big money on “The Rigs!” (That’s how I remember hearing it nearly four decades ago) It is true; there is “big money” to be made in the energy industry. But guess what? If you are able-bodied, you can make good money in pretty much any industry. You may have to move to a different part of the province or the country, but there is high-paying work available. And if you have a pulse and the ability to string a few words together, you’ll get an interview. If you show up, hell, you’ll probably get the job. But maybe you should be proactive and prepare yourself just a little bit.

Jim Warren: Rough patch for rewewables

Jim Warren: Rough patch for rewewables

Just two years ago, executives from a leading renewable energy company boasted they were experiencing the “best renewable energy development environment in history.” But, as of the second quarter of 2022 the renewable energy boom they predicted looks more like a bust.

How much for gas? Around the world, pain is felt at the pump

How much for gas? Around the world, pain is felt at the pump

There’s a global oil price — around $110 a barrel — but no global pump price due to taxes and other factors. In Hong Kong and Norway, you can pay more than $10 per gallon. In Germany, it can be around $7.50 per gallon, and in France, about $8. While lower fuel taxes mean the U.S. average for a gallon of gas is somewhat cheaper at $5, it’s still the first time the price has been that high.

Biden tells oil refiners: Produce more gas, fewer profits

Biden tells oil refiners: Produce more gas, fewer profits

President Joe Biden on Wednesday called on U.S. oil refiners to produce more gasoline and diesel, saying their profits have tripled during a time of war between Russia and Ukraine as Americans struggle with record high prices at the pump.
“The crunch that families are facing deserves immediate action,” Biden wrote in a letter to seven oil refiners. “Your companies need to work with my Administration to bring forward concrete, near-term solutions that address the crisis.”

Brian Crossman: Brad Wall for prime minister!

I have several friends that always ask me, “When is Brad Wall running for prime minister?” The guys asking are almost exclusively from Alberta; Calgary, in particular. I think that the reason they ask is based on two things. One, the less-than-desirable federal...

Facebook rejects boosted post of a Pipeline Online news story regarding Pierre Poilievre

Facebook rejects boosted post of a Pipeline Online news story regarding Pierre Poilievre

I wrote a story which was the entire verbatim speech Pierre Poilievre delivered to the Saskatchewan Oil and Gas Show. Facebook would not allow me to run an ad promoting that story. And if you don’t pay Facebook (Meta) to push your content out, it will hardly show it to anyone. When Poilievre speaks of “gatekeepers,” this is precisely what he is referring to. It is very real.

Poilievre speaks of the consequences of the relentless ideological drive to attack the energy sector

Poilievre speaks of the consequences of the relentless ideological drive to attack the energy sector

WEYBURN – Pierre Poilievre is the leading candidate for the leadership of the Conservative Party of Canada. He made the effort to attend and speak at the Saskatchewan Oil and Gas Show in Weyburn on June 1. That was a key day, because the next day, party membership sales closed.
Poilievre had laid the groundwork three years ago, attending and briefly speaking at the same oil show in 2019.
He had a lot to say about energy. You can watch the speech on YouTube, below, or you can read his entire speech, verbatim, further below.

Biden vows to battle inflation as prices keep climbing

Biden vows to battle inflation as prices keep climbing

LOS ANGELES (AP) — In President Joe Biden’s estimation, the U.S. is in a strong position to overcome the worst inflation in more than 40 years. But so far, inflation just keeps getting the better of the U.S. economy and of the Biden administration.
The president’s policies, his deals with the private sector, regulatory actions and public jawboning have failed so far to stop prices from marching upward.
Biden on Friday pledged to keep fighting against inflation while touring the Port of Los Angeles, America’s busiest port and a place that the White House said last October would be key for reducing price pressures.
