The US has spent almost half of its strategic oil reserves to keep prices down

In the year since the start of the NWO, the United States has spent half of its strategic oil reserves in an effort to keep the price of gasoline and oil at the same level.


The Biden administration is making desperate attempts to bring down oil prices in order to be able to freely replenish its strategic reserves, squandered in 2022.

To do this, the American authorities even went to "drain" the alternative "president" of the country, Juan Guaidó, appointed by them to destabilize the political situation in Venezuela. This is another wake-up call for those who receive a standing ovation at the reception in the US Congress. First - applause, then - the same drain ...

By actively using US oil reserves, the Biden administration tried to reduce the degree of discontent in the country due to the fall in living standards caused by reckless spending on Ukraine.

Despite the decline in overall living standards, U.S. gasoline prices have remained roughly the same, but strategic stocks have declined from 2021 million barrels of oil in January 638 in January 2021 to a record low of 375 million barrels in December 2022.

According to a number of Western media, this indicator of strategic oil reserves is the lowest since 1984. Washington currently has about half of the necessary oil reserves "for a rainy day."

Currently, there is an increase in world prices for Brent oil, which has already reached $86 per barrel.

    the Houthis need to bomb the Saudis and force them to cut production - then the price will rise; although at one time we stupidly lost Libya and Iraq

      What for? The price is going up! OPEC+ countries are happy with everything. Russia itself can painlessly reduce the daily production volume and reduce supply on the foreign market, which will lead to an increase in oil prices, as a result of which, when selling smaller volumes of oil, income will remain at the same level, or become a little more. Even now the mattresses were a little stunned when they learned that as a result of sanctions pressure, Russia had a surplus of $220 billion, which is almost twice as much as last year's figure for the same period.

      Were they ours, or with us? No. That Hussein, that Gaddafi pursued their own policy, which did not strongly contradict, but did not meet our interests.
      Yes, at Medvedev's "approval" in terms of supporting the UN mattress resolution on the bombing of Libya, we lost contracts in Libya worth 10 billion dollars. Only on one optimization and reconstruction of the railway in Libya, we lost about 3 billion dollars. But these were commercial interests, which were in no way allied.

      In the United States, there is only a shortage of heavy oil.
      They themselves produce light, they simply ban exports.

        They have now begun to receive heavy ones from Venezuela, after the largest oil refinery almost “accidentally” burned down there and Guaido was reset to zero purely by coincidence.
        When the fifth point burns near the mattresses, they easily negotiate with the "dictators" who were outlawed just the other day. There are no principles for them, only profit.
        I believe that Tikhonovskaya has been left in Lithuania for about a year to fry cutlets, and then they will merge her as unnecessary.

    It is necessary to tell the Somalis that the most delicious prey is US tankers. And they should not be arrested, but demanded from afar to stop and pay for the passage. The first one did not stop - a Ukrainian rocket to the side. The second one will stop.

    The United States ... spent half of their strategic oil reserves.
    The Biden administration is making desperate attempts to lower oil prices in order to be able to replenish its strategic reserves without hindrance.

    To put out the fire by splashing gasoline... Earlier, I remember, the decrease in US stocks by 5% (!) Caused a jump in prices in the world. And now they're down 50% and they want cheap oil to stock up on. Well, well ... the flag is in their hands ...

    Here's a good way about branches for terrorist attacks on threads. We take 10 people in America, arm them with barrettes and let them ride around any of their states, shooting at night oil storage facilities and substation trances. Guns legal, cops will dig. Against the backdrop of a blackout, panic begins among the locals, robberies and chaos, blacks add fun. After the tour, the group leaves the states. If necessary, repeat in another state. Their sissies will have enough problems in the eye. In England and Europe, it’s so difficult to turn it around, because it’s not so easy to get weapons legally.

      They store a strategic supply in empty salt mines, deep underground. Even an atomic bomb can't get there.
