The U.S. government sees oil production further climbing next year even amid transportation logjams in the country's most prolific shale play. The Energy Information Administration sees U.S. crude output averaging 11.8 million barrels a day in 2019, up from its 11.76 million barrel a day estimate in the June outlook. "In 2019, EIA forecasts that the United States will average nearly 12 million barrels of crude oil production per day," said Linda Capuano, Administrator of the EIA. "If the forecast holds, that would make the U.S. the world's leading producer of crude."

Supply AND Price BOTH UP. Its summertime, time to stick it to the consumer.

So many gas stations, all whom change their prices daily in concert. But NO COLLUSION.

"U.S. Is Set to Become World's Top Oil Producer"

U.S. oil companies are set to become the world's top oil producers. That oil will still be sold on the international market to the highest bidder. Not quite as exciting news when you look at it factually like that.

#7 and the rubes conveniently forget all the promises of cheap gas if only we remove regulations and allow our public lands to be destroyed.

Now, if we only had a couple more ports that could ship LNG. Thanks o'bummer.

If we had more LNG ports maybe Germany would not be buying LNG from Russia.

Once again Obama in collusion with Russia.
