International Energy Agency to release 60 million barrels of oil

Quick post here before I go into a meeting. The U.S. strategic oil reserve is for emergencies - not for manipulating markets. This release of 2 billion barrels per day for 30 days is not only an unfair manipulation of markets, but also an unnecessary depletion of our national oil reserves.

While the US has approximately 727,000,000 barrels in it's oil reserve, this is only enough to sustain the US for about 60 days. The US is not in a crisis regarding oil supplies!

I’m a little heated up about this - not only is the US in 14 trillion dollars of debt, we are running a deficit on social security and medicare, and now we’re using the strategic oil reserve.

When will the US quit depleting it’s resources?
