Chart of the Day: Regardless of Midterm Results, Biden Gunning for $300 a Barrel Oil

Making oil (and all carbon-based fuels) more expensive is a major goal of climate change activists. It will drive the move to “green energy.” This was exemplified at the opening of COP27. The UN’s climate change summit has opened in Egypt with a warning that our planet is “sending a distress signal.”

Joe Biden is all in on the climate change narrative. Biden let slip just two days before the midterms, namely what everyone always knew would be the pinnacle of catastrophic US energy policy under the Democrats: “no more drilling.”

The Wall Street Journal reported in September that Biden had leased fewer acres of public land and waters offshore for oil and gas drilling than any other administration since World War II. See this in the chart below and learn more here.

President Oil Leases

America had been largely energy independent after the Trump administration. But now, under the Biden administration, this is a long-lost dream. Along with declining oil drilling leases, Biden has drained the SPR by a third. Absent a dramatic reversal in trends, this could be just the beginning.

Where could we be going with oil prices? Eric Peters, CIO of One River Asset Management, gave a warning shot about where oil prices could go – see here.

“The rate hikes have sustained earnings but shifted them from the high multiple stocks into low multiple names,” explained Mosler. “The effect is a one-time decline in overall market capitalization for stocks as a whole, but once we adjust to this shift, the market heads higher to reflect the rising inflation brought on by the Fed,” he said.

“Stocks will then be a good inflation hedge until something breaks.” In each cycle, something snaps. “You never know what it will be, but my best guess is that something like $300/barrel oil eventually ends this cycle.”

Regardless of the results of the midterms, the Biden administration is gunning for higher oil prices. Of course, this is under the belief of climate change activists that it is imperative that we stop the use of carbon-based energy to save the planet.

What this does to the global economy, climate activists don’t care. Are we setting ourselves up for a massive spike in oil prices very soon?

Born down on the farm in America's Midwest, my early life was spent climbing the ladder via a long career in information technology. Starting as a technician, and after earning a degree going to night school, I eventually found a place working at ATT Bell Laboratories as a software engineer.

Later moving into management and then a long stint in a major management consulting firm working with major banking, telecommunications, and retail companies. Working in various states in America, I also spent considerable time living and working in several European countries - currently expat in France. As a side career, I was heavily involved in real estate development and an avid futures trader. This experience can give one a unique view of the world.

The storm clouds of dark change are near. Today America is at a crossroads. Will it maintain its prowess as a national leader in the free modern advancing world, or will it backtrack in the abyss of the envy identity politics of tyrannical socialism, and the loss of individual freedoms. The 2020 election may have decided this. Join the Right Wire Report team and make a stand.
