The Country Only Has 25 Days' Worth of Stored Diesel Fuel, the Lowest Level Since 2008

I didn't realize how bad this was until I saw a Tucker monologue (linked below).

It's bad.

But Biden did manage to put off the crisis until ten days after the election.

And that's what really matters, huh?

Update:

A little bit of hype from Tucker.

It's a 25 day day supply if ALL the refineries quit making diesel. I think a piece at ZH said it could become a true national shortage in about 6 months.

But the piece also points out that worldwide diesel inventories are also at a record low.
Posted by: GnuBreed

Okay, I didn't realize that -- the amount we have on tap is only 25 days worth of diesel, assuming we make no more of it, which isn't true; we are making more of it.

But it's in very short supply and could run out. Just not in 25 days.

So as GnuBreed says, this is a hype figure from the media (and repeated by Tucker, relying on the media-- which one should never do).

But the shortage is real.


The US now has just 25 days of diesel supply -- the lowest since 2008. Here's why that's more alarming than a dwindling 'oil piggy bank'


The U.S. is facing a diesel crunch just as demand is surging ahead of winter -- with only 25 days of supply left, according to the Energy Information Administration.

National Economic Council Director Brian Deese told Bloomberg TV that diesel inventories are "unacceptably low" and "all options are on the table" to bolster supply and reduce prices.

However, even as the stockpiles are being drained, the Biden administration seems to be left with very few sustainable options for long-term relief.


Unlike gas and jet fuel, demand for diesel recovered at a much faster pace from the pandemic. Diesel is used for transporting goods as well as powering construction, farming and military vehicles and equipment.

...

New England's stockpiles have been depleted to less than a third of its usual levels for this time of year, which is concerning since those states rely on fuel for heating more than other parts of the country.

The national average price of diesel as of Oct. 24 is at $5.34 a gallon -- $1.63 more than last year.

If diesel inventory continues to run down without the government intervening, the impact on transportation costs for goods could drive inflation up even further.

Deese adds that the Fed has some tools to bolster diesel supply, like the Northeast Home Heating Oil Reserve, which houses one million barrels of diesel in case of a disruption in supplies.

"We have looked very carefully at being prepared to deploy as and when necessary," he said.

But The Washington Post reports that diesel demand is so high, that if a million barrels of diesel were delivered from the Northeast reserves, they would be depleted in less than six hours.

If we run out of diesel, the trucks stop running. Food stops being delivered from the heartland to the cities.

That would be... so Joe Biden.

He would firmly secure his place in history as the president who presided over mass starvation, food riots, and the actual overthrow of the US government.


In very related news, the Administration struck a secret deal with the Saudis to pump additional oil through the election -- but apparently the Saudis got sick of Joe Biden's claims of being a football star and having been raised in a "Puerto Rican household."

President Joe Biden's (D) administration has repeatedly claimed, including as recently as today, that the trip the president took to Saudi Arabia over the summer had nothing to do with oil.

However, a new report from The New York Times outlined a "secret deal" that the administration had with the kingdom, which Saudi Arabia later turned on.

Biden officials began meeting with the Saudis in the spring and allegedly secured a "private oil deal" in which the kingdom would get the OPEC oil cartel to increase their output of oil by 400,000 barrels per day starting in July instead of the previously planned September.

With this "secret deal" agreed to, Biden went to Saudi Arabia. Not to negotiate an oil deal, I suppose, but to thank Crown Prince for a deal already struck.

But maybe he did not thank him enough:

When he met with Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, the country's day-to-day leader, the Saudis presented the administration with charts that showed that the price of oil had fallen and promised that they would increase oil production to a staggering 11 million barrels per day, which the report noted the country "had reached for only a few months in total over the past several years."

Biden's team thought they secured the deal, but Saudi officials were privately telling others that they had no plans to go through with it.

America is back, baby!

We're respected in the world again!

After learning the Saudis would not be increasing oil production, they then learned they'd be cutting it.


The administration then learned that the kingdom was going to cut production and they desperately tried to stop them, but nothing worked.

The report effectively said that the Biden administration was clueless as to why the kingdom stabbed them in the back on their "secret deal."


It's worth noting that Biden repeatedly attacked the crown prince and the country while on the campaign trail, the administration has taken a stand against Saudi Arabia in their war in Yemen, and they are working with Saudi Arabia's top enemy in the region: Iran.

Deputy National Security Council spokesliar John Kirby refuses to say if there was a "secret deal" or not.

That's a "yes."

He also insisted, WITHOUT EVIDENCE, that there was no "meltdown" at the White House over Saudi oil production cuts.

Over the summer, Peter Doocy asked this liar why Biden can only think to badger other countries into drilling more, instead of allowing US companies to drill in the US.

Kirby lied about the Fake News about the "9000 permits" that aren't being used. They're not being used because they're dry holes, Kirby.



This is scary: When asked what the Administration will do about the US running out of diesel fuel in 25 days, John Kirby has no plan whatsoever. He talks about our "European allies" -- who are also facing an energy crisis.

We're going to get diesel from people who are clear-cutting old growth forests to heat their homes?


Tucker Carlson on the coming diesel crash:

Here's that press release by Jamie Raskin, which I assume is what Tucker Carlson is referring to. Here is the language I think he's focusing on:

Moscow right now is a hub of corrupt tyranny, censorship, authoritarian repression, police violence, propaganda, government lies and disinformation, and planning for war crimes. It is a world center of antifeminist, antigay, anti-trans hatred, as well as the homeland of replacement theory for export.

Hmmm. According to Jamie Raskin, we're "antifeminist," "antigay," "anti-trans," and believers in "replacement theory."

If he wants to go to war with Russia for these ideological leanings, that means he also wants to go to war with... us, right?


Essentially he's saying: "We have to fight the MAGAts in Ukraine so we don't have to fight them here in America."

Although he obviously does want to fight us here.

Bring it on, Jamie. I'm your huckleberry.

Funny how the lefties always wanted to make peace with Russia when it was merely the Communist Soviet Union.

Home heating oil and diesel are the same product. They put a dye into diesel so they can tax it higher for over the highway abuse. A trucker gets pulled over with an un-dyed fuel, he's got some 'splainin' to do.

It's a 25 day day supply if ALL the refineries quit making diesel. I think a piece at ZH said it could become a true national shortage in about 6 months.

But the piece also points out that worldwide diesel inventories are also at a record low.

The "day supply" assumes normal usage, but anyone who tried to buy toilet paper a couple of years ago knows that once you pass a certain threshold, people will begin topping off everything they can as a hedge, which will cause a surge in demand, leading to panic buying.

As the supply drops, demand accelerates because now it's only 20 days, 15 days, etc.

If the story is that it's *fallen* to 25 (which seems to be the case from the chart I've seen), we're using more than we're making, so it's definitely not constant at 25.

173 So what is this “replacement theory”?

The silly conspiracy that the Deep State is deliberately increasing mass immigration to reduce the percentage of white people in the United States, and make white people a minority population.

This is an insane conspiracy theory, even when the media celebrates the fact that it is happening.

For example, the NYT:

Their America Is Vanishing. Like Trump, They Insist They Were Cheated.

It's ambiguous. Were they both holding a different hammer, or were they both holding the same hammer? In either case, you could say they were both holding a hammer. My interpretation is they were both holding the same hammer.

Diesel, gasoline, kerosene, and jet fuel are all cracked from the same barrel, but the blends are different based on the refinery layout. The US refineries are currently set up to produce much more gasoline than diesel. There is not enough diesel refining for the demand in the US.

267 Diesel takes less refining than gasoline, how then are gasoline stores not equally low?

Am I missing something?
Posted by: Archer at October 28, 2022 05:36 PM (gmo/4)
==============
Crude refinery products conversion:
After distillation, heavy, lower-value distillation fractions can be processed further into lighter, higher-value products such as gasoline.

The most widely used conversion method is called cracking because it uses heat, pressure, catalysts, and sometimes hydrogen to crack heavy hydrocarbon molecules into lighter ones. Complex refineries may have one or more types of crackers, including fluid catalytic cracking units and hydrocracking/hydrocracker units.

Alkylation makes gasoline components by combining some of the gaseous byproducts of cracking. The process, which essentially is cracking in reverse, takes place in a series of large, horizontal vessels and tall, skinny towers.

Reforming uses heat, moderate pressure, and catalysts to turn naphtha, a light, relatively low-value fraction, into high-octane gasoline components.

Fresh vegetables & fruits, but also all around the store shelves. The heavy snow, combined with the heavy demand of the holiday, caused the inability for shelves to be restocked.

And Biden was allowed to reopen everything and save the day, and instead they intentionally broke it worse. On purpose.

Posted by: G'rump928(c)


Approximately. Kerosene is lighter than diesel, if you're just using those terms. Jet fuel is kerosene, heating oil is diesel.

But, kerosene is sometimes called "#1 diesel." Diesel fuel for trucks can be just #2, a blend of both, or just #1. Closer to pure #1 for cold weather since it ignites easier and has lower viscosity, and closer to pure #2 for normal use since it's cheaper to make.

Crude refinery products conversion:
After distillation, heavy, lower-value distillation fractions can be processed further into lighter, higher-value products such as gasoline.
The most widely used conversion method is called cracking because it uses heat, pressure, catalysts, and sometimes hydrogen to crack heavy hydrocarbon molecules into lighter ones. Complex refineries may have one or more types of crackers, including fluid catalytic cracking units and hydrocracking/hydrocracker units.

Alkylation makes gasoline components by combining some of the gaseous byproducts of cracking. The process, which essentially is cracking in reverse, takes place in a series of large, horizontal vessels and tall, skinny towers.

Reforming uses heat, moderate pressure, and catalysts to turn naphtha, a light, relatively low-value fraction, into high-octane gasoline components.

Posted by: CharlieBrown'sDildo
---------------------------
Try Apex Gun parts in CO or Liberty Tree Collectors (pricier option), you can also find some but pricey on Ebay. Do you just need the bolt or the complete bolt? Complete bolts go upwards of about $150 or so nowadays. What to watch for in a T99 or T38 bare bolt though is fitting the safety knob as some will not hold the cocking piece on the firing pin.

426 Okay, I didn't realize that -- the amount we have on tap is only 25 days worth of diesel, assuming we make no more of it, which isn't true; we are making more of it.

But it's in very short supply and could run out. Just not in 25 days.


So a little bit like a lot of Americans' savings accounts. Lots of people have had to dip into their savings the last couple years to stay afloat the rising tide of inflation. And instead of having a nice comfortable 3-6 months safety net savings, it's only 25 days.

If suddenly these people were to stop making money -- lose their jobs -- then that 25 days of savings would become a crisis. But so long as people still have a steady income, they can replenish their savings.

Semi auto rifles don't screw up much but when they do it can be an issue. Might want to check your extractor and delicately soften the edges a bit more using a stone.

An ejector on the AR has more than enough spring power to hold a cartridge tight against the ejector and bolt face particularly if the cartridge head is dinged in some way.

452 Likewise, astonishingly, in a debate on Monday, Charlie Crist, Democratic candidate for governor of Florida, accused Ron DeSantis of being “the only governor in the history of Florida that’s ever shut down our schools.” “You’re the only governor in the history of Florida that shut down our businesses,” Crist went on, “I never did that as governor. You’re the one who’s the shutdown guy.”

In fact, as DeSantis pointed out, Crist had publicly sued DeSantis to keep kids out of school in 2020, and he wrote DeSantis a letter in July 2020 saying the entire state should still be in lockdown.

Have them go to Numrich aka gunparts corporation and look for Arisaka as a mfg (even though it isn't). I have just confirmed that they have bare bolts and then you have to buy the safety-firing pin combo and firing spring separately. The combo will run about $160 or so.

Numrich has a parts breakdown and schematic for most firearms including the T99. Doesn't matter much on quality for firing but there is a difference between early bolts and late so called last ditch bolts. The early bolt handles are plum shaped and the later ones are cylindrical. The early safeties have the stylized chrysanthemums on the back to help manage the safety, the last ditch do not. Fit and function are about the same but last ditch type parts are a bit cheaper.

When I was in upstate NY, we would get Kerosene at the local gas station for about $5/gallon. Last I got it here I had to go to a farm supply and it was about $7/gallon.

So they can deport their illegals and stop buying crap they don't need and stay warm affordabily.

This story is just fishy. Let me start by saying I hope Paul Pelosi does recover, these violent acts are disgusting. With that out of the way, how in hades was he able to break in through a sliding glass door without the layers of security noticing, or cameras that must be all over the place picking this up? It just doesn’t make any sense to me.

Also, why were there sliding glass doors and not French doors in this mansion? I guess that is a question that can wait for another time in which I reveal myself as a horrific door snob.

What is your hot water backup heating system, if you don't mind me asking?

Posted by: clutch at October 28, 2022 06:09 PM


Not at all. Imagine you're camping but you like a hot water shower and 2 1/2 gallons would work. Garden hose fittings. I still have to install everything but there's an almost 80 foot run from my furnace to the master bath. I think I can mothball the oil burning furnace for that purpose and get by with 2 1/2 gallons water at 130 degree off a 110 line on a GFI. Camping supplies might be the new reality under JoeBama. I've had the wife confirm that 104 degrees is her 'perfect' shower temp. Mine is virtually the same. So it might be a five minute shower. No chance of filling a bathtub, but new reality is new reality.

Oh, they won't have heat.

The lie for public consumption is that with industry shutting down for the winter, homes will have heat. What people will do for money next year with no jobs and no heat remains unsaid.

513 I just bought a flat of Kroger's house brand Basic Peanut Butter.

Two ingredients listed. Peanuts. Salt. (the peanuts supply their own Peanut Oil, natch.)

Gotta do some serious stirring to use it, but it's delicious, keeps well, not full of industrial chemicals and completely devoid of added sugars.

Strongly recommend.

515 "If we run out of diesel, the trucks stop running. Food stops being delivered from the heartland to the cities."

Relocate all suppliers to high ground, and all consumers to lowlands. Trucks can coast the cargo to its destinations. Zero emissions.
