Dude, the trucking industry is short drivers now. Although, with Biden giving amnesty to millions of illegal aliens that will soon be a thing of the past.

I hear ya on that. It's another issue , the illegals. I don't see the merits in granting them amnesty at this time.

Like all presidental and government decisions, I consider them point by point and believe the individual issue is far more relevant than the person proposing them.

Not only will illegal aliens who are granted amnesty be competing for our jobs at lower wages, but the Harris/Bidden administration will probably grant more H-1B visas to skilled workers including truck drivers, who will be allowed to come into this country and work for lower wages. Also, more and more jobs, including minimum wage jobs, require that you speak Spanish before hiring. Please don't tell me that you don't see where this is going.

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

Do you really think that obama was for drilling?

"Obama: Nation can't drill its way out of soaring gas prices" https://thehill.com/policy/energy-environment/159705-obama-more-drilling-is-not-the-solution

Whether or not Obama was for or against drilling is irrelevant.

Fact is he signed the law in 2015 that allowed US crude to be exported. The production boom happened before Trump became president.

Simple as that.

Didn't obama vow to bankrupt the cola industry?

Off topic.

Didn't Trump have to scrap obama policies to increase drilling and make the USA energy independent?

President Trump's America First Energy Plan scrapped "directives" and regulations from the Obama administration that constrained energy production and streamlined the federal approval process for

Trumps plan reduced regulations for new drilling. However because of the large supply that already existed before Trump took office not many companies increased drilling or production

In essence, Trump's plan was moot.

Don't trucks have to go through red tape and bureaucracy at the border before crossing into the USA? Doesn't that create a chokehold and stymie the flow of oil? With a pipeline, would the flow of oil into the USA be greater, and can't the trucks and trains pick it up for transport where the pipline ends in the USA? Wouldn't the total movement of oil on trucks and trains be greater than trying to move it in by trucks only?

The issue is jobs. The pipeline will reduce the number of jobs that are required to bring the oil into the US.

Simple as that.

Don't trucks get stuck at the border trying to get into the USA? Pipeline flow doesn't get stymied at the border.

Yup, because no humans would be involved at the border. The pipeline would be an automated process.

It's not off topic. Obama was anti fossil fuel.

Didn't obama say the his plan of cap and trade would make electricity rates sky rocket?

Obama said a lot of things that either weren't true or half-truth double talk. Just like Trump. All politicians do.

I consider just the issues not who introduced them.

Like the topic in the title of this thread. The reality is the suspension of new permits for drilling on Federal land will have little to no impact because the oil companies have permits stockpiled that they haven't used and are still valid
