    A former Keystone XL pipeline worker said the energy industry "tried to
    warn" President Biden against policies hindering U.S. oil and gas
    production – policies the worker said have caused the country's growing energy crisis.

    "We tried to warn this administration back when they canceled the
    Keystone Pipeline" that it was also "canceling national security,
    foreign policy and energy," Neal Crabtree told Fox News. "They all
    kinda go hand-in-hand."

    The average price for a gallon of gasoline in the U.S. hit a record
    high this week, as oil neared $130 per barrel. Biden announced Tuesday
    that he was banning Russian oil and gas imports, which he said targets
    the "main artery of Russia’s economy."

    Biden said the decision will further increase already-high domestic gas
    prices and warned fuel companies that it is "no time for profiteering
    or price gouging." He blamed Russian President Vladimir Putin for
    rising gas prices in the U.S.

    Cut!

    But Crabtree said rising gas prices go beyond Russia's invasion of
    Ukraine.

    "Even if we can fix the Ukrainian problem, the prices are still going
    up," he said. Biden's "policies have everything to do with the rising
    fuel prices in this country today.

    "It has nothing to do with the war in Ukraine," Crabtree continued.

    Is this what happens when the adults are in charge? Since Biden took
    office there has been one crisis after another.

    I think anyone has to admit the country was in better shape, and more
    respected by the rest of the world when Trump was in office.

    The Left is ruled by emotion, not logic. They get their panties in a
    bunch over punishing evil oil companies, but never give a second
    thought to the consequences of their actions.

    A favorite quote sums it up:
    "One of the great mistakes is to judge policies and programs by their intentions rather than their results."
    ... Milton Friedman

    So Biden relents and oil companies will bail us out? Maybe not, or at
    least not entirely. They may be reluctant to spend billions on new
    wells and equipment when sooner or later the Left will likely shut
    them down again and their investment will be lost.

    I don't care if they get emotional, jump up and down and scream, but
    the need to use common sense and scientific facts when making decisions.

    Biden shut down the Keystone XL pipeline because of climate change, and
    to create more jobs. It will neither create jobs or improve the
    climate.

    How can there be any benefit to the climate, when other countries are
    asked to increase production? I'm sure our pollution standards are
    better than Saudi Arabia's or Venezuela's.

    The World's five largest consumers of oil are the US, China, India,
    Japan, and Russia. All of which have fertility rates BELOW replacement
    rate.

    Once again!
    For a country to just maintain its population (not grow) each woman
    must have on average about 2.1 children. The countries of the
    developed world have fallen well below that rate -- meaning, in
    general, North America, Europe, and East Asia, including China (1.70).
    Here's a list -- too long to post, but read for yourself! BTW, the US
    at 1.78 is one of them.

    "Countries with Below Replacement Fertility Levels (Projected:
    2020-2025)
    This table shows all U.N.-recognized countries and areas with
    populations over 90,000 that are projected to be below replacement
    fertility for the 2020-2025 quinquennial period." https://www.pop.org/simple/countries-with-below-replacement-fertility-levels-projected-2020-2025/
