Offshore Oil Drilling Open House 3/16

Offshore Oil Drilling Open House 3/16




The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management is holding an open house to answer questions and receive comments this Monday 3/6 from 3-7pm at the Ramada in Kill Devil Hills.

If you have questions about offshore oil drilling, or if you want to submit your written comments for consideration, this is time to do it! Some people from the Surfrider foundation are meeting next door in front of the Comfort Inn at 4:30 for a press conference. If you are interested, there are more details at the link below.

They will also be marching in the parade on Sunday with an oil rig float!

RE: Offshore Oil Drilling Open House 3/16




Thanks for this, Maslin. Looking forward to reading about this open house and all that happens. Wish we were still down there!


RE: Offshore Oil Drilling Open House 3/16




I personally would hate to see oil rig on the OBX. It would detract from the natural beauty of the area.


RE: Offshore Oil Drilling Open House 3/16




Old post. Tillis did a 180 reverse on this issue (he was for it) because of the election and asked Trump to include NC in the moratorium. We have 10 years before it comes up again.

Average NC gallon of gas price on 11/3/2020: $1.96

Enjoy it while you can.

Didn't find historical data for NC only, but nationally:
12/07/15 2.053
12/07/20 2.156

What point are you trying to make?

Don't know why this was so hard for you, but-


North Carolina gas prices have fallen 1.1 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $1.96 per gallon Monday, according to GasBuddy’s daily survey of 6,092 stations. Gas prices in North Carolina are 6.4 cents per gallon higher than a month ago and stand 39.1 cents per gallon lower than a year ago.

According to GasBuddy price reports, the cheapest station in North Carolina was priced at $1.69 per gallon Monday while the most expensive was $3.09 per gallon, a difference of $1.40 per gallon.

The national average price of gasoline has risen 3.5 cents per gallon in the last week, averaging $2.16 per gallon Monday. The national average is up 5.7 cents per gallon from a month ago and stands 42.6 cents per gallon lower than a year ago.



The point is that you just voted for more expensive gas for all of us on 11/3. Thanks alot.

How so? I just posted that gas was cheaper on 12/7/2015. Why do you think it's going to change now?

Back on topic, Tillis, who asked Trump to include NC in the moratorium, is a Republican. Gas prices are influenced by a whole lot more things than who's in office.

Remember how high gas prices were under Obama/Biden? They’re going to be even worse under O’Biden/Harris, and you voted for it.

Oh and I remember gas prices being their highest during Bush (my link backs that up), but you go on living in your alternate world.

You memory is faulty. Or your source. Probably both.

Your graph cuts off at 2009 and looks like it's averaging per year. Try this one.

Wow, that's remarkable, has averaged $1.00 a gallon MORE during the Obama years ('09-'16) (give or take a dime).
It's remarkable too that our energy independence developed over the last four years of the Trump Presidency provided low prices and national security. Without offshore drilling expansion. Which Trump (and Tillis) recognized to be unnecessary due to our abundant resources and an efficient industry free from overbearing and unnecessary regulations (and excessive Corporate Taxation).

Isn't it awesome how you can make numbers look beneficial to your argument just by selectively slicing them up (8 year average vs 4? Do Obama's first 4 years next). I love how you completely ignored that peak during the Bush years and also failed to mention the big downward trend after 2014 and into the Trump years where it went back up. Numbers are fun!

As to your reasoning, nah, that's just rah rah talk. Non of it is based in any kind of facts. You don't find it even a little strange how Florida (hmmm, who owns property there?) was the only east coast exemption until (checks dates again) right before a primary election. But yeah, go ahead and think what you want. NC wins and that's all that really matters.

Somebody doesn't understand graphing TRENDS. Maybe that's why he voted for higher energy prices across the board.

Hahaha. You talk about not understanding graphing TRENDS (hey I can capitalize also!) and then clearly show a upward TREND during the Bush years, while also showing a downward TREND during Obama's last 4 years. Laughing smiley Laughing smiley Laughing smiley

I also love how your lines stop early for the Bush years (no part of that peak was during Obama). You also stopped early for Obama and gave Trump credit for the low period. But yeah, I get it, Trump has been riding on Obama's coat tails for most of his Presidency.

All the numbers are in the link I provided. Try again. Oh, and one last time, what does any of this have to do with Offshore drilling in NC???

Add averages of trends to the list this one doesn't understand.

You voted for the party that claimed Obama inherited Bush's bad economy, and that Trump inherited Obama's good economy. Now we get to test both theories.

You also voted for the party that is against our nation becoming a net exporter of fossil fuels since 2016, which directly affects what you pay for gas. Watch for O'Biden/Harris to reverse that. Also, natural gas exploration is either on the chopping block or not depending on who on the ticket you choose to believe.

Energy prices are known to "necessarily skyrocket" by design under the party you voted for on 11/3. No reason to doubt they won't continue that trend.

Funny how your graph only shows 2 years of Bush. I wonder why? Also according to your own graph, Obama had a lower "average" in 2016 than Trump had through all his years (well, 2 of them on your graph). Also, according to your graph, Obama's last 3 years average lower than Trumps first 2. Laughing smiley Numbers are fun!

"...Obama had a lower "average" in 2016 than Trump had through all his years..."



An "average" derived from a single data point.

Math, meet low info voter.










RE: Offshore Oil Drilling Open House 3/16




So when did gas prices go down??? When people stopped driving. It is simple supply and demand. Remember when people posted "Don't buy gas next Tuesday, that will show the gas companies." See there is truth to that, just takes much more than a day.

So why did people stop driving??? Because Covid forced people to stay home and not drive. So Trump had nothing to do with the reduction in gas prices. If you want to credit someone for reduced gas prices, credit the virus.

WRONG. Gas prices hit their lowest point about a month after inauguration day in 2016, which was 3 years BEFORE covid.

It's almost like you lefties are allergic to the truth or something.

Candidly, strong oil (anything north of $60, the further the better) is "better" for the overall US economy than cheap oil. These current levels are going to be difficult for the industry long term.


RE: Offshore Oil Drilling Open House 3/16




Wow Butter Ball, interesting chart. Thanks for it. So reading your factual chart, before Trump gets into office the price of gas is going down for 2 years, trump gets into office and he manages to reverse it and have it go up until Covid hits. Thanks for pointing that out.

Also you know NOTHING about me. So labeling me, or anybody else from just one post is a remarkable talent.

As much as I enjoy low gas prices, as OceanBlue mentioned, low gas prices are not good for the economy.

At least we have another 10 years of no off shore drilling in NC, regardless of the reason. By that time I'm guessing oil consumption will continue to drop and it won't be brought up again. Hopefully.

It's all about average price, or the "mean" of the graph, which for Obama was $2-3 higher than Trump's. You and John need to read up on mean, mode and median.

"low gas prices are not good for the economy" If that's how you want to rationalize whats coming, have at it. This is also about us becoming energy independent and reaching net exporter status since 2016, which is all about to end. On purpose.
