Chevron oil find boosts hopes
POSTED: 9:39 a.m. EDT, September 5, 2006

NEW YORK (Reuters) -- Chevron Corp. said Tuesday it had successfully drilled for oil in the Gulf of Mexico's deep waters and analysts said the find suggested there may be more oil in the region that provides a quarter of U.S. output.

During the test at record depths and pressure, the Jack No. 2 well flowed at more than 6,000 barrels of crude per day, Chevron said. That puts it on a par with discoveries in exploration hotspots such as the waters off Angola.

The Wall Street Journal cited Chevron officials as estimating recent discoveries in the Gulf of Mexico could hold as much as 15 billion barrels of oil and gas reserves. That would boost U.S. current reserves by 50 percent.


This along with oil prices dropping like crazy! I looove it. Tho I'd also love a national plan to get off of oil towards something that doesn't rely on us begging for Arab and Muslim nations that want us dead.

There's nothing I'd love more than for America to get off of oil, or have our demand drop like crazy, and have the tyrannical muslim nations and Venezuela get pissed off.

Ron? Where the hell have you been? Gas prices have DROPPED like crazy.

Regular Unleaded gas is 2.39 on Midlo Turnpike at Sheets and Wawa. It's 2.45 at Wawa on Staples Mill Road. 2.49 on Route One at I-295 south of Virginia Center Commons Mall.

Gas prices go up mostly because the demand never will go down dramatically, it's mostly that supply that flucuates. Our supply is further restricted because of stupid crap like regional blends.

There are over 40+ blends of gas thru these united States. That raises the price even more.

If you want to see gas prices go down 40 to 50 cents and stay low, remove these BS fuel blends. Drilling for more oil also will help.

Efficiency works, and the marketplace will help that IF that's what the people want. SUV and big truck sales have dropped like crazy. I've seen a truckload of Hybrid cars around. Hybrids are actually more expensive to own for less than seven years, than regular cars.

I can write more, but it's 12:39am and I'm very tired and I have to take a shower.

I'll update this on saturday or sunday, when I have more time.

Effiency works, and conservation doesn't work because most people are required (work, kid's sports, getting food, etc) to drive around even if it hurts their money situation.

That's MISTER Capitalist Asshole to you! :-D

I'd rather be a capitalist asshole than a communist.

And we do have a choice, we can get bicycles and that doesn't work unless you live in Washington DC or you don't have a real job. See also: Dirty, jobless hippie

Next to Corvettes, there's a soft spot in my heart for big American hoopdee cars. I used to have a 1981 Oldsmobile and I currently have a 1994 Buick Century. Nothing beats those cars to store lots of stuff.

My dad has a Ford F150 that we haven't seriously used in years (he uses is occasionally to drop stuff off at the dump).

I love being able to go around 300 miles on a 12 gallon tank of gas. I never have understood the allure of an SUV, big hulking slow trucks that can't handle worth a damn in the snow.

In the countryside, they'd be much more useful. But if some suburban or city type wants the SUV, be my guest, and enjoy your high gas bills. The market will always do a much better job at regulating things than any busybody hippie or gov't bureaucratic thug.

big dick theory....big truck = macho???

even women caught on here cause most women dont sit around with tit size envy....most who have huge ones want em smaller and ones that basically have a bump off a rib that resembles a nipple wish for bigger ones...

males.... doesnt matter if your dong is 3 inches or 10.... you always fancy for another 1 or 2 (or more)

big trucks and SUVs are just an extension thru the symbolism of extravogency

i put $40 in my tank yesterday.... it will not need gas again until NEXT sunday if then....

not exactly a chick magnet ride....ginny hates getting in it because its so ugly (and i smoke like a fiend in there with the windows up)

her name is Ilene....after the old bitch who gave her to me...


its definantly a hoo-ride but damnit it does better than any vehicle i have had AND it was free....get off my nuts!
