Don't know what to make of it. I guess the higher it goes the harder we will try for alternatives. But in the meantime we will suffer because everything hinges off of oil prices. Food being the biggest.
If the supply goes up, demand being steady (it isn't but assuming so), the price would go down. That said, it doesn't matter a lick if said increase in supply comes from the U.S., the Middle East, Russia, or the North Pole. It's a world market.
The United States is 11th in the world at exporting Oil at 1.9 million bbl/day which is about 2.9% of world output. That's a small drop in the pond. Even in some faux reality where we could up production over night(impossible) three fold, at most we might see a minor dip in the price of oil.
Your comment regarding "no one can convince me" is a major turn off from doing any more in-depth research because I feel it would be a waste of time.
