Yet there will be millions of Americans that will still buy into this ridiculous Biden regime.

TDS and media programming runs deep within some.

It's frightening to think that more than one Hipkat exists in this country, but sheep are fairly commonplace these days

Ugh, you still don't get it? When you remove a major supplier of energy from the market, in the case us, with a steady demand globally then supply goes down and PRICES RISE EVERYWHERE. Economics 101 bro. Stop carrying water for this moron you voted for.

He will never answer this. I said to him before that if the largest producer of oil restricts oil production it is going to effect EVERY COUNTRY in the world. But, it doesn’t fit his narrative, so he will ignore it and will continue to use his flawed argument again and again.

What should he do to bring down the cost of international CTR shipping?

This is a significant contribution to our current inflation problem.  
 

This has been a growing problem for years, starting under the Trump administration, and the shipping industry has taken advantage of the global COVID crisis to gouge their customers.

 

Shipping and transportation costs continue to be a significant driver of increased costs. While delays have started to clear (In my business the CTR travel times from Asia have dropped from 90->60 days) the premium pricing approx 3-4x what they were 36 mos ago remain. In many cases these costs were originally absorbed by the importer (similar to the tariff increases before).  The thought was that it would be a temporary increased expense. Now that these costs seem to be here to stay, those costs are being passed along to consumers. 
 

One of the products I work with fits 108 units into a 40’HC CTR. Made in Vietnam, this CTR used to cost ~$6500.  We’ve paid a high of $33k and now it’s settled to between $28-30k.   That’s about $200/unit increase in COGS.  We’ve had to raise the MSRP by $400 to $3299 to cover this cost. 
 

The USA has little influence on global shipping prices.  Just like the petroleum industry, the shipping companies, Intl and Domestic are taking advantage of the current market conditions and maximizing their profits.

I have been to a few of those countries, Spain, France, and Germany.  What one pays at the pump in those countries actually goes to things, as a large part of their prices are taxes that build infrastructure which means that I almost never encountered a pothole there and always enjoyed well maintained roads, and damn good public transit system where you could catch a bus or subway in any decent sized city and go anywhere there about ever 10 to 15 minutes.  My only beef with any of those countries was Spain where air conditioning in fucking August, when its really hot, came at a premium.   Anyways, in Europe you are actually paying yourself ahead, I would have to wonder where our gas price increases would go.

For some reason I don’t understand, some European countries don’t seem to mind sweating out of every fucking pore on their bodies.

Go inland in Sicily in August and try to enjoy yourself. I dare you🤣

It costs about double what we pay in the US to run A/C.  A little swamp ass might be a fair trade-off.    :niterider:

Oh I know, Spain in August under that hot Mediterranean sun, damn lets see they had arenas with no AC, that sucked, they had theaters with no AC, that sucked too.  Then the host family I was with, they were at least well to do enough to have a house where the breezes from the Med, about 10 miles away helped cool you down, and even better a little corner of their living room that had AC, but I was told that there was literally a tax on using your air conditioner so they often did without.  Oh well it was all good,  the wine, cerveza, food, people, and art were wonderful so I mostly enjoyed it.  On the other hand, I learned why a lot of tour companies suggest October and November or March and April for Italy, the Balkans, Greece and Turkey.

You DO realize that we're still the largest producer of oil in the world, right?

What Countries Are the Top Producers of Oil?

 

1. United States

The largest economy in the world, the U.S. is also the largest producer of oil. The U.S. crude oil production exceeded that of Saudi Arabia in 2018 after more than two decades and has maintained the lead since then. Crude oil is produced in 32 U.S. states and in coastal waters. However, close to 71% of the total U.S. crude oil production comes from five states—Texas, North Dakota, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Colorado. America’s oil and natural gas industry supports 10.3 million jobs in the country and contributes nearly 8% of its gross domestic product (GDP). 

The data by U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) indicates that total petroleum production in the U.S. averaged about 18.87 million b/d while its consumption averaged about 19.78 million b/d in 2021. The difference between consumption and production is by imports. The top five source countries of U.S. gross petroleum imports in 2021 were Canada, Mexico, Russia, Saudi Arabia and Colombia.

Yes, I realize that we are still the largest producers of oil. https://www.macrotrends.net/2562/us-crude-oil-production-historical-chart. February 2020 (around Biden taking office) we were producing 13,100 barrels of oil per day. Then it instantly took a nose dive below 10,000 before coming back half way. It’s currently 11,600.  Down 12%. That doesn’t take into account all the restrictions/changes Biden placed on the oil industry https://www.csis.org/analysis/biden-makes-sweeping-changes-oil-and-gas-policy You refuse to admit that the LARGEST PRODUCERS OF OIL cutting/restricting it’s supply has anything to do with gas prices in Norway? Then you clearly don’t understand how a global market works. Is a big part of this Putin’s fault? Absolutely. Is a big part of this Biden’s fault? I know the apologist in you won’t let you admit it, but, ABSOLUTELY.

That's making your argument look worse. How much of that oil is for domestic use? As @Nukepointed out, Biden has crippled our output which has caused prices to rise because the supply is lower. I'm not sure what part of this you just don't get. If the President has a very lenient natural energy policy prices always drop because of the surplus. Should we explain it to you as apples and oranges?

I don't get it. Biden is an abject failure and @HipKatassures us that he's a Republican. Biden goes against almost every principle he's supposed to have.

Lol. Reading in the shoutbox he’s sounds Pro-Choice and all for gun reform.  These are two issues I really don’t care about either way, but, it makes you wonder what issues was he ever Republican on?

Financial prudency but that's about it. That's a Uniparty problem now and we're seeing it in action with these Ukraine aid packages.
