The US announced that it has sold the 1.1 million barrels of oil which it took from Iran. The Iranians wanted it to go to Venezuela.

This is the oil that they took by capturing oil tankers back in August.

US Privateering action only cost the English around 300 million dollars in the Revolutionary War.

Surely, this was a profitable operation as this was about 40 million dollars of oil at the current market rate.

The America’s cup sailing competition might still happen, just with public safety considerations.

Some estimates say that these sorts of actions have costed Venezuela billions of dollars.

Major oil companies are trading about 1% lower than yesterday before Biden made a negative comment about the oil industry at last night’s debate.


Biden said he would end the oil industry when Trump asked him as part of a less chaotic performance than the first debate.

In Pennsylvania, oil was first discovered in 1859 in Titusville.

In all likelihood, Biden was trying to say we need to end the oil industry at some point, but just failed to specify when in the heat of the moment. However, tens of millions of people whose lives and livelihoods depend on this industry may have been a bit spooked by the statement.

The Department of Energy is hoping to encourage the use of nuclear power generation.

Biden’s son has worked for a company in the energy sector before, so maybe he knows a thing or two about it.
