Many don’t look at these little stories and think them thru. Why’d this happen, who is behind it and why would I suggest this is another step towards economic collapse?

article claims it’s internal strife yet through a decade since hillary had khadaffi killed they have exported 400/500k barrels a day!

what does 400/500k barrels a day mean? It’s about equal to Californias demand. It’s loss will create yet higher prices for a limited commodity.

the higher oil goes the less people can spend, and the less people can spend the fewer jobs will be needed, and the recession teeters towards depression.

There also has been a limit in DEF for diesel. I believe any truck made after 2010 will not run without it. Another brick in the wall.

The majority of DEF is made overseas.
The US is number 4 on the list.
I work part time for one of the largest nationwide auto parts retailers, and we stock DEF in 2.5 gallon jugs.
Supply has been spotty for several months now. We have run out, and been unable to get more, on several occasions in the last 4 or 5 months.

Also - availability of heavy duty engine oil for diesel trucks has been very hit or miss as well. Shell Rotella, Chevron Delo, etc. My wife drives a diesel Chevy Silverado 2500 Heavy Duty pickup, and I have backstocked enough oil and filters for her truck for maybe two years worth of driving.
I'm getting ready to do the same for my GMC Sierra 1500.

When the big trucks stop, the whole country will stop. Many independents are already parking their rigs due to high diesel fuel prices. The average semi gets about 6 MPG, and diesel is almost $6/gallon now.

They just gotta get you one of those electric big rigs, right?

Guy I know had his dodge Cummins DEF deleted.
Had someone hook to computer and no longer has to use any.
Will it still pass inspection? Or just a farm truck now?
