  1. One more factor is that 90% of US land wells are now fracked. This is important because fracked wells have good production for a much shorter timeline than more traditionally produced wells. You have to keep drilling and fracking just to keep production levels steady in the US. When the number rig count dropped to half(below link, set to 5 years). This was not enough to sustain the current level of production due to how fast fracked wells lose production capacity. https://tradingeconomics.com/united-states/total-rigs
  2. It was not the oil companies fault nor was it biden's fault. The issue was just a perfect storm of economic circumstances. There were no restrictions on being able to tap fields that were already provided. Oil prices went negative in March/April 2020, and the layoffs in the oil industry happened just after that. This is also when the oil companies cold stacked their rigs. The price spike did not happen until summer 2022. When the prices were starting to go up the oil companies tried to get drilling again, however at this point all of their equipment had been sitting around unused, and they did not have people to get it up and running quickly since they laid off a large part of the workforce 2 years prior. Leave a diesel truck in your driveway for 2 years and see what happens. It takes time to get it running. They had the leases to drill and there was no regulations preventing US oil production from ramping up. None of the oil price issues going up, or going back down have anything to do with Biden or any politician.
  3. Leases were getting approved before, that is not why prices spiked. It was because the number of oilfield workers laid off and switching industries along with the large number of drilling rigs cold stack and finally the oilfield service companies quit making the tools needed to drill. The rapid downturn of the oil industry is what caused oil prices to spike.

    Most people do not upgrade their cars nor make them look better. I left my last wrx stock and i may buy another budget performance sedan this year,(corrolla gr, wrx, civic type r, golf r, etc) and no way do i do any mods to the vehicle. Even if i keep it for a few years and decide to track it at most i would do is the required brake upgrades. As far as looks I do not mind the tesla. There are many features that would prevent me from buying one, like their proprietary infotainment system instead of android auto. But the looks would not be one of them. I think spending 6 figures on any car is dumb, but i am not rich. However, if I was rich in some fantasy world, then a model s plaid would probably be in my stable of 20 cars. Edit: I understand many people do mod their cars as well, especially those than own performance cars. However, I was pointing out that many do not mod their cars. Both scenarios exist.

    The yaris GT is a budget performance car not offered in america and it beat it by about as much as the 911 beat the plaid model s. Same reason the hellcat exists and why there are drag race events all over the united states. Some people like the pikes peak hillclimb, others are into f1, rally racing, nascar, gt3 class, lemans' hypercar class, and some people are into drag racing. The NHRA has 22 events so people must be into driving in a straight line, in which case the Model S Plaid does that quite well for how much it costs. The demon that the OP posted is also quite fast at driving in a straight line, and some people like that. There is no one best car, although if there was I would vote the 911.

    Just looked up, it is a minute faster than a toyota 86, 50 seconds faster than a yaris gt, 36 seconds faster than a corrolla gr, 17 seconds faster than a golf r. It has so much straight line speed that it can beat some of the budget cars.

    Yes, not even close to the fastest stock ice production cars. It is because the battery weight. It isn't easy turning a machine that heavy even with it's traction control abilities and instant torque. Straight line though.

    Tesla is a minute slower than a stock 911 gt3 and 35 seconds slower than a stock wrx sti at nurburgring, which is my go to racetrack when looking up times. The plaid model s beat the hellcat on the nurburgring by 20 seconds though. We will see if they ever race a demon on the nurburgring to get a better comparison.

    With the 5,000 pound electric car or the oversteering machine?

    It is a gimmick, the dodge comes "stock" with drag slicks that have a 5k mile warranty and the tesla comes stock with low rolling resistant tires without much grip. A tesla plaid with drag slicks will destroy the demon, sad but true.

    I dislike thousand island and I worked at BK in highschool/early college so that eliminates 2 choices. Going back to my Wyoming heritage, give me a potato oles from taco John's. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taco_John's
