Aren't we already producing more energy than we need to the point that we are exporting?

What the hell is Trump talking about increasing our energy production?
Does he even know that average gasoline price now at about $1.98/gal. reg?

1. Just repeating the old lines. His supporters are so ignorant that they have no idea about this.

 

Oil and gas producers have thrived under Obama.

2. Go ahead trump, try and force those companies to

Produce more oil with the existing glut.

This isn't going to happen. He thinks it's 2012. He is completely out of touch.

4. he talks a lot about increasing coal production

but it isn't regulations or anti-coal government policies hurting coal... it's abundant natural gas.

Those coal jobs aren't coming back anytime soon no matter what.

6. This was also done while we slashed oil imports

of oil. In 2005, we were importing 12.5 million barrels/day. In 2008, we were importing over 11 million barrels/day. Last year, that number was down to somewhere around 4.6 million barrels/day. That's a huge decrease.
