The increase in oil production has happen from drilling of non-federally leased areas. Federal leases for oil exploration and drilling have been drasticlly curtailed by the current administration. How then do you give credit for increased production to the head of the administration that limited said access?
As to the issue of refining, I don't really care if the oil companies refine more or not. At present we export more refined gasoline and petroleum products than ever before. Refining more would simply make more available for export to foreign countries and thus larger profits to the oil companies from the export with little effect on the price here in this country.
You are obviously a champion for Big Business and Corporate Greed.
