Oil companies are going to keep their profit margins. We're just going to pay for it at the pump with higher prices. How about eliminating excess regulation to lower the cost of production? How fast tracking new domestic oil production to increase supply? All of this will help lower prices at the pump. Lay off eliminating the tax breaks until prices are at a place we can comfortably afford.

In other news, the CEO at Marathon oil took home 30 MILLION last year alone. The companies profit margins grew to over 20% as they had a net income of 2.9 BILLION in 2011

Don't believe me, they are publicly traded, have a look at the balance sheets. Do they really need the tax break, or would that money be best utilized in another area?

+Steve Ayers: Oil drilling, transport and refining is dangerous stuff. Why sell out our resources without ensuring the safety and security of the people getting it out of the ground to us, and why sell out the safety and security of the natural resources that can be damaged by it? Decreasing regulation won't ease the price at the pump. Using less of it, and reducing demand, will drive that price point down.
 
+Ryan Anderson Crude oil is dropping right now just over the discussion of several nations, including the US, increasing global supply of oil by releasing oil reserves. Using logic, if a very short term increase in supply causes oil prices to fall, what would a long-term increase of oil supply at a much larger scale do to the price of oil?
 
the one (of only a handful) of Obama's policies that libertarians can support. Now if Obama would also abandon all farm subsidies (including for corn ethanol) and all green energy subsidies, and all foreign country subsidies (foreign aid of all kinds to all foreign companies and states), and the UN subsidy.

It is time for these rich republican oil company's to get there comuppance there free ride needs to end their creating fake shorttages to raise pcices on the american people wet they export it to outher countrys for a cheeper price this needs to stop and congress better. Pull their heads out of there ass or the taxpayers are going to vote them out of office the people are tired of the goverment screwing them over and there tired. Of the tea party lies. They don't care about the country only their sorry asses
 
+Paul Johnson It is false that every regulation on every industry increases the safety of people working in that industry. Take a look at this NY Times story. http://lnk.nu/nytimes.com/1zjo.html We are an over-regulated country. Eliminate the excess and retain the ones that are effective. How do we reduce demand exactly? If we do it in any other way by natural market forces our economy will collapse. Oil prices are not only what you pay at the pump, but what you pay on every product by means of transportation costs. Artificially reducing demand (ie rationing) will increase the price of everything in our economy and kill tourism across the US.
 
+Steve Ayers: It's patently false that deregulation makes rates go down. Just look at telcos, wireless services, or electricity rates.

+Paul Johnson It is absolutely true that deregulation will reduce prices, but it depends on the type of regulation you eliminate. Many regulations are necessary, but many are not. Eliminating, say, the Glass-SteagalI act could result in a massive economic collapse several years later. If you eliminate a regulation that penalizes oil companies nearly $7 million for not adding an unobtainable biofuel to their gas, we consumers no longer have to carry the bill. What people don't understand is that no matter what taxes you place on businesses or what regulations are added that increase the cost of production, it is the end consumer that ends up paying the bill with a more expensive product.

Eliminating regulations in order to maintain the status quo won't reduce prices.
 
What should happen is the oil companies should bring those refineries back online that they just shut down.
 
If they increase domestic oil production. It will just go into storage like all the rest of the domestic production. Their is allready enought in storage for a 1000 years is'nt that enought. Refinery production needs to increaseed they need to quit coming up with stupid reasons to raise prices their is so much oil on the north slope. They could tell those saudi to stick there oil in there ass
 
i dislike all your lies obama please stop liying to us
 
+Paul Johnson and by the way I agree with you. They shouldn't release oil reserves. I was using that as an example to point out that increasing supply will in fact reduce prices. More than ever before, the US oil prices are tied into global oil prices. Even if none of the oil we produce is actually sold in the US, it will still satisfy global demand and lower global (including US) oil prices.
 
The argument is that gas prices would rise if the tax reduction was removed.. which implies that the more you drive your car the more should others subsidized your need for cheaper gas.. or actually that is the result of that argument.
 
+Peter Kjeldsen It means that affordable energy prices is a goal that our government is trying to achieve. I personally believe the subsidy should go away, but I think now is the wrong time to do it, since gas prices will necesarily increase as a result of removing the subsidy. When the US economy has either returned to a normal level of gas prices or adjusted to the new higher cost of gas is when we should eliminate the subsidy to minimize the impact on consumers.
 
Or in other words, the republican argument is that every tax payer should subsidize cheaper oil, instead of letting the real cost be paid by those that actually use it. To some extent isn't that the exact opposite of the normal politics that are argued for by the Republicans?
 
Big Oil, Big Pharmacy, Big Banks. There are more than "Big Oil" enjoying tax breaks. You're only using oil for partisan reasons, just like the Republicans.
 
+Peter Kjeldsen It's a matter of timing. And whether you know it or not, each person that has ever bought anything from a store pays for oil. Products don't just appear near cash registers. They are transported there by vehicles that use oil, and the cost of that oil is built into the product you are purchasing. I would love to see Republicans vote to eliminate the oil subsidies, along with every other subsidy, but not at a time where our economy is still so weak. Doing that would send us into another recession that would be even more disaterous than the last.
 
The pipe line won't do a damn thing, the oil would go to.the world market 4 sale 2 the highest bidder, respectfully..grow up
 
Why am I getting spammed by Obama on G+? It's bad enough that we have to put up with him for another 10 months without him invading my Google...
 
Apart from that there is no other way?

This is all circles, go to another n u.wont get obama.
 
Yeah, the same one who saved GM, n saved.100.000 jobs.
 
A tax break is not "our money". This is like saying that Bob refrained from stealing $100 from Steve, and it cost us $100.
 
ted, somewhere out there is a clue you need to find. if the auto industry went down, we would be in a recession that far exceeded the 30's. it would be best for you to leave the dark side now and enter the light.
 
@randall hall why are we getting spammed by you?
 
According to Obama, the US is just a tax increase away from prosperity and affordable gasoline.
 
Tell Barack to stay home and save taxpayers money instead if flitting all over the world to give worthless promises.
 
I can't stand gas prices. Which is why gas companies need a real scare. Just start using cars that don't use as much/any gas. People can't make the argument these cars don't exist now.

Why are oil companies getting subsidies? That's the question here, right? How about using the money for education - or is that too elitist? Be real. With all the talk about cutting the budget, politicians are still beholden to their big campaign supporters (lobbyists) - they owe the favors... This won't change until the system changes. A good place to start? End the oil subsidies.

At least with big oil subsidies we are getting some sort of benefit as a nation. The money that went down with Solyndra and other big green companies produced absolutely nothing for anyone.
 
@Morgan Laco- yes, but your deduction is "asinine". the money "thrown" at the auto-industry served its purpose and saved a definitive disaster from occurring. you'd rather the disaster happen and that simply defies all logic. clearly you don't understand how tragic a total collapse would be. mind boggling.

Even a brokerd cnvntn wont get ron paul elected.lol
 
I am going out on a limb here. the problem is not oil production. it refining capacity. If 30% of all production was direct by the president to be sold in the US it would come down quickly. Funny How the oil produced on "government land" is sold on the world market? Seems to me it belongs to the people of the country. the other thing that would help would be to limit the number of BLENDS needed. Perhaps that is old science. I don't know. I might be wrong. But I have been before.

Just more propoganda. This was posted on The white houses feed yesterday. What wrong...feel like america isnt listening and had to post it again. The fact is oil doesnt recieve a dime of cash from the govt. The recieve the same tax breaks as companies like GE. which GE has a horrible record of outsourcing jobs and parks money over seas to avoid taxes. The tax breaks spoken of is pocket change compared to the taxes they do pay. This will never happen but why dont you big govt fool obama address the oil companies make 6.5 cents a gallon while the govt recieves 50 cents a gallon off sales in taxes. Thats where people should be outraged instead of the record profits drum banging
 
i'm sure they will just find another way to waste it
 
What do you think is going to happen to prices when they lose those those tax breaks? Do you think Obama is stupid? He knows exactly what he is doing. You people who say he saved GM, really? YOU saved GM with your taxdollars, he rolled the dice and won with OUR money that time, with Solyndra it was a different story.
 
How and why were such sums ever paid to already, massively, profitable companies in the first place?
 
Aren't those tax breaks intended to keep the price of fuel down? rhetoric! Yeah, let's tax big oil more! That will make the price of gas go down!

The buck stops with you president Obama. No more blaming others.
 
Oil companies don't decide the price at the gas pump. Don't be drones! Final gas prices are decided by the market and the market is heavily influenced by the federal government's policies. The president is simply trying to spread the blame as far away from him as possible by demonizing companies responsible for hundreds of thousands (maybe millions) of jobs in this country.
 
+Gabriel T And that's why he's trying to end tax breaks and subsidies for a booming industry. Or would you like him to take a tour buss around the country manually lowering the price of gas on the signs?
 
You think the consumer wont pay the difference? Get real
 
May God bless your wisdom and share to all nation in USA.
 
Corruption at the highest level.Not just in the U.S.A. but in the U.K. with all utility companies as well as fuel companies;Politicians and most especially bankers in their "ivory towers" with little or no grip on reality ! WE are still the 99% and TIME WILL TELL !
 
If you didn't tax the gas it would be a lot cheaper +Barack Obama . However, you wouldn't need to tax it if you had cut federal spending by an appreciable amount.
 
So oil companies if you will provide 10% of the non-defense US budget with the 41% tax rate they are being charged. Solar for example, their tax rate is -245%. (negative 245%)

Exxon pays around $1.45 in taxes for every $1 they make domestically, yet the Obama machine will give you Global numbers to skew everything.

The public will have to pay the taxes in the end.
 
The art of compromise and common sense left the building for no apparent reason.
1) End these subsidies
2) Build the Keystone Pipeline
3) Use the Keystone Oil Pipeline to maintain the strategic oil reserves and
4) Periodically reserves will be abundant, release them into the markets to ease prices.

Everyone wins. It's not rocket science, just too many special interests and egos.
 
This is total BS - The tax on every gallon of gas is way more than any oil company profits.
 
Funny how many still think building Keystone Xl would lower prices. I ask myself how many Americans actually know how the oil market works and what decides the world price of crude oil. Most impressive is that people defend a Canadian project which will add hardly any long term jobs at all. This project will reduce the oil oversupply in the midwest refineries and through shortening supply increase the oil = gas price there.

Further more the last part of Keystone XL goes to Texas and the tax free harbor to ship the produces gasoline into the export market.

I am amazed how much Americans are fooled by their glorified privat industry and buy into it.

I guess I will never understand it.
 
Ya, while you take 3 million dollar trips to Europe with your gas-guzzling car. Suuuuuuure.
 
By comaprison gov.org spends roughly 4,000 billion a year and doesn't make my car go anywhere. Wonder if the whitehosue understands the economic correlation between energy and GDP? Yeah probably...just more silly class and socialist baiting.
 
Why do we subsidize industries that make such much profit? Can we not save that tax money to subsidize future energy source research like hydrogen?
 
oh look a G+ robot account. wait isn't that who is in the white house too... Congressional Robot, needs food badly.
 
Yes, successful companies DON'T need tax subsidies. nuff said!

On a different note, why do people comment on your (+Barack Obama ) posts just to insult you? I really wish people could be more respectful. 1'st Amendment rights are necessary, and do allow people to say such things. But saying some of the things being said here, and to the President himself no less, makes them really un-American at heart!
 
The tax subsidies should end for oil as well as ethanol. But we have no substitute for oil, especially when it comes to transportation fuel. It's sheer fantasy to think otherwise. What are we going to use instead, Skippy? Even if you're one of the 8,000 buyers of an oh so fabulous coal-powered Chevy Volt, you still need oil.
 
Obama’s goal is to regulate our natural resources so that alternative energy (imagine alternative food) will look cheap.

By the end of Obama's term we will be struggling to decide whether we want to cool our homes – use a cell phone - or eat.
 
I like at the bottom of the post it says "more photos from Barack Obama"
 
Also, can we end the corn subsidies and ethanol mandates? No more need to force corn sugar into people and cars thanks. Even SCOTUS agrees lol.
 
End government subsidies for ALL companies. Allowing the government to grant special tax breaks or give money away to this company or that company, whether it is big oil or Solyndra, is the ultimate in corporatism.
 
Renewable energy, 11% of Americas energy production, 77% of tax incentives.
Fossil fuels, 78% of production, 13% of incentives.

The irony..of it all.... is that we buy all the Cheap- Krap..China makes..So they are now Flush.!! with American $$$ and can Out-Bid the world for any Oil..!
 
+Micah Stubz I think that, with taxes, everyone has to pay the same amount of money to keep the price at this level, without it probably the price would go up, but, then, everyone would pay depending on how much oil he use, and personally I don't think this would be wrong.
Btw, how much is it, right now, for a gallon? Here (europe) 9.52$...we definitely need electric cars...hell! Even horses would be better than this...I start crying every time I take my little Ducati to a gas station...
 
So the obvious question becomes if big oil companies were required to pay corporate tax without tax breaks would they get out of the business because it is too expensive to operate? I think not. If anything the price increase would be passed on to the consumer who in turn would peruse less costly options, or at less equally costly greener options. I can’t see how the argument that by taking away corporate tax breaks you affect jobs in America is valid, because we all know that big business will shift with market demand. There by providing whatever product is in demand no matter if it is gasoline, electric, hydrogen, or whatever. In fact change is inevitable!
 
+Jason Cunningham I wanted to +1 your post, because successful companies do not need subsidies. But, the president is no one special. He has more might, but that doesn't make him right (no matter which president you're talking about.)
 
Look at the bright side! Less pollution, longer lasting fossil fuel resources, ....
 
How far will that $4 billion go to cover government spending? The government spends about $10 billion a day. If you go ahead and exclude oil companies from all of the manufacturing companies that get tax breaks. It'll buy you another 9.6 hours of government spending per year.
 
Correction its acually oil makes 6.5 cents off each dollar and the feds and state govt collect 50 cents off each dollar. So 4 bucks in fuel is 2 bucks in taxes. And 4 bucks in fuel is about 26 cents in profit for oil companies. That the hard truth. You want fuel to ckme down bang your drum to the government not a witch hunt.

If the tax breaks are $7,610/minute then what is the tax revenue per minute currently at the federal, state level, and local levels?

Lets estimate it:
160 Billion Gallons of Gas / Year * $4.00 /Gallon *
1 year /525,948.766 Minutes 50% Average Tax %* =

Tax revenue is currently $608,424/minute

**Average Tax includes drilling, transport, distribution, refining, penalties, and sales tax.

It appears the government needs "Big Oil". right?

Let's end farm subsidies while we're at it. And other subsidies, too.
 
Oil companies are the biggest taxpayers in America today. Since when would raising taxes on them somehow reduce gasoline prices? Econ 101 fail; Marxism 301 probably an A.
 
Go back to history and see how Roosevelt handled the oil companies. He wanted to put John D. Rockefeller in jail for monopolizing gas and oil. Back then the price of gas was .04cents. Bush allowed the two biggest oil companies to merge. Well you saw what happened afterwards. The price went up from 1.69 / gal to 3.69 per gal. What was the reason? There was no reason.!!!! The two conglomerates raised prices and everyone else followed suit. The spiraling oil prices are creating havoc with the economy, because everything else is contingent upon the price of gas and oil. Hence everything went up. (for no reason) Even today. the price went up because of Iran giving someone a hard time passing through a strait that no one has heard of. (again another way of fixing the price without hassels). Beautiful set up. NO REGULATION, JOHN Q. PUBLIC PAYS. everyone is happy right.? This is not capitalism ----there is no fair competitive pricing that is being battled out. The oil companies have a conspiracy and they are out of control and their big money is sponsoring the political machine to induce politics to their favor. ECON... A. Marxism 301----A. big oil companies F.
 
"Big Oil" is not shell, exxon, BP, etc. Big oil is opec. They hold 97% of reserves, they set prices. If obama wants to lessen prices, cut the 11% on taxes we pay...a staunch liberal
 
... we all need to remember that "big oil" means investments by thousands and thousands of people plus many retirement funds. Obama would make us think that these millions of so called profits only go to a half dozen robber barons... information from the White House is misleading.

Well, since all the money that gas companies get as income comes from consumers, any tax break they get is just money those same consumers don't have to pay for the gasoline. Obviously, Mr. President you are trying to win the sympathies of voters that are ignorant of economics. Hope it works out for you.

Then the costs will be passed on to the consumer. He knows that as anyone does or should. It's a catch-22.
 
Mr. President. Please stop your Cloward/Piven, Energy Destroying, Race Bating, Class Warfare, and Blame Game agenda. You are ruining the economy, morale, and culture of this country. The country is center right and you are far left. Most of us do not subscribe to your socialist agenda, nor do we appreciate the fact that you are intent on usurping the constitution.In case you haven't heard we broke away from a King two hundred and thirty six years ago.

Actually i am pro Mr Obama since his career is better than Bush. Money-consuming stuff, right?
................................................LOL, English comments////
 
A little arithmetic shows that the $40 billion in annual subsidies to oil companies amounts to less than $0.19 per gallon of gasoline. In the past 3 years the price of a gallon of regular gasoline has risen about $1.90, ten times the amount of the effect of the subsidy. So, let's get rid of the subsidy, I agree, but let's be aware that the subsidy is a round-off error and put the rhetoric from the White House in perspective.

Higher gas prices are the only way for us andothers to step it up and find us clean and renewable energy for our autos!

Removing subsidies right now is a sure way to lower the prices. Right? :) I mean there seems to be a bit of a disconnect in that logic (or tax on oil industry needs to go to 100% every time gas approaches $3.50 or something :) )
 
Why is it when gas prices skyrocket during this administration that subsidizes "clean" energy at much more than it produces (if it doesn't go bankrupt), is it always because of "excess" profits, speculators, worldly matters, Geroge Bush's fault, Iran, Israel, and everyone else's problem and offers no real solutions except rhetoric .. why don't we just let economics work? Clean energy without subsidies will become marketable when economics and resources make it so, that is Basic Economics 101 - why is it that "Supply" and "Demand" don't work in the Obama Administration (well unless for something else that suits them, of course) .. but when prices go down in a Republican administration, it's just because of "Supply & Demand" .... I'm still looking for the algae gas station ....

So the plan is Oil companies pay more to create their product and, despite the basic rules of economics, the cost to consumers will go down?
Do they just think we are all stupid?
 
I'm less concerned about the price at the pump than I am over the fact that massive tax breaks for the already profitable corporations, such as Exxon, exist in the first place.
 
what a lost cause, when gas gets to 10-12 a gal we will all be walking. So, the nuts think Marshall law is just around the corner. maybe the time is short and when you see the man of perdition declare himself God the the crap shall hit the fan and if the Real God of Wonders doesn't step in all will be lost! The President is a part of the system that will bring death to the earth. I don't think he wants lower gas prices...his cabinet is advising to let them climb till the election then he can tweak the reserve nozzle just in time to get elected. What a crook! the companies he supported on wind and solar cost us in bankruptcy. Can I get a refund on that 300m in lost invested tax dollars please?

The tax breaks are there to keep prices low for consumers. If oil companies were taxed, do you think for a second they would keep their prices the same? No. They will have to compensate for the loss, which means the cost will be passed on to YOU. They can keep their profit margin the same because oil is in high demand. Don't be fooled into thinking that taxing oil companies will help alleviate your woes at the gas pump!

+Steve Ayers This is not a supply and demand problem. It's been repeatedly shown that supplies are actually up. This is simply a matter of greed and allowing oil to be traded on the commodities market that is screwing us over. There should be serious looks at either changing that or regulating the market... All the tax breaks should go...that shouldn't have anything to do w/ the final price. The reason they are getting them is because of course they bought and paid for our Congress and when the energy policy was worked out under Bush, it was all done behind closed doors when they were given those subsidies (unnecessary then too). We've been getting taken to the cleaners ever since.

How much of that daily $10,958,400 "tax break" roll back into Washington into the pockets of CORRUPT lobbyists and CORRUPT politicians to keep it going. Get rid of the CORRUPTION!!!

How about a list of the politicians that voted YES for these tax breaks!!

These "exemptions" and "breaks" must be passed by a majority so I say, VOTE the scumbags out! Do not re-elect anyone and get a new President, Senate, and House. Keep doing this until we see some REAL CHANGE!!!!

Our government originally began giving oil companies tax breaks to be able to dictate how the Oil companies operate. One of the large tax breaks granted requires the oil company do business in the United States with US citizens, if this tax break became no longer effective then employment will go overseas where big oil will be able to produce gasoline for us at less cost. Is that what we really want?

Removing tax breaks from oil companies will likely just make them charge more for gas. Won't do any good for anyone.
 
My question is this.... Say we stop the subsidies. Has prices go up. Does everyone then get a decreased tax bill since the money is no longer going to the oil companies? No. It will be used for some other program that benefits those at the top (who can already afford the things they NEED) while leaving people making minimum wage with increased gas budgets. Is it right that we're paying oil companies subsidies? No. But it's keeping the prices I pay for gas lower than they would be otherwise. They're already taking the money out of my check, if they want to rearrange the way it's dispersed, do it in a way that won't increase my monthly budget.

I just love these comments "tax em all ect." common wake up corporations do not pay the income tax out of their profit they inbed it in the price of the products. the rate of embeded corporate income tax and compliance costs are from 15% to 26% of the price of the product you buy. when they get a tax break alot of them don't pass the savings on to the customer , is more profit for the business. no business that knows what it's doing will eat the tax and compliance costs . the customer pays them. A business purpose is to make a product avaible and give a profit to it's owners. A tax bill HR-25 the FAIR TAX BILL eliminates all dirct Income tax and replaces everything with a federal sales tax at retail sale on new products and services. it eliminates the paperwork to file and the IRS is reduced to tracking what the states send to the government after collecting the sales tax. all people will pay according to the amount of products bought. this will be an indirect tax more fitting to the origonal constitution wording on taxes. check out the site www.fairtax.org for the latest information

+[Paul Johnson] - So Paul you think you put up an oil rig drill for a day and its producing oil (or natural gas?) and to the market within a week? - it also depends on how much the well produces - a classic example is the delay or stopping of permits in the Gulf of Mexico "deep water" wells - this lack of permitting by the Federal Govt is going to hurt the U.S. even more in the coming years - if you look at the wells around the Gulf of Mexico the number of shallow wells outnumber the deep water wells by a significant margin, but the oil from very few deep water wells produces the bulk of the oil out of that region ... the oil drilling going on today that has increased is being done on private land not increasing on public land ...
 
Over half the price of a gallon of gas is a state, local, or federal tax, why should they get all that money? Perhaps if we used Alaska for what she became a state for, we would had ridiculous amounts of low cost oil. Drill here and drill now!

Obama lives in a bizarre socialist world, in which the state has property over individuals and companies that generate wealth and required services.

Than he returns as savior, telling who should get robbed less. The decent solution for lower gas prices would be not to start any new wars in countries that sell you oil, or start drilling.
