Up Their Sleeves

Postby sl6886 » Tue Nov 09, 2021 2:01 pm

The Biden Administration keeps referring to multiple "tools" at their disposal to address either high energy prices or dwindling supply, but I honestly can't tell which their purporting to address.

My question is: What tools ? If I think like a statist, my mindset is I'm all powerful, so I'll take what I need and give it to who needs it. Is there some type of emergency declaration? Any guesses?

The easiest one is to release oil from the Spr

More sinister is to tax the crap out of energy companies and float money to poor people
Stop exports which would crush ng and ng is down 10 per cent today so is something leaking?
Add a tariff to exports (get a piece of the action)

Recently, California add a 100 a day container fee
This cost is passed on to consumers

Also banned gas lawnmowers and weedwackers
Which will drive the supply of oil up by 100 gallons
