      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

It seems Kinda shitty that the US has plenty of oil to fuel it's own nation for pennies on the dollar, but we make more money exporting our own and buying someone elses...

Most of the companies that claim they don't import from Middle Eastern countries, we don't even have around here and/or I've never even heard of. Citgo is the one that is part of the 7-11 chain. There are Conocos in WA, but I have only seen them on the eastside of the state.

I've got gas...just ask my wife.

 

She says that if we could harness it, we'd be rich. But then there might be a war over me, and I would hate to see people go to war over my ass.

 

Beer + my gastrointestinal system = gas

A lot of it has to do with geography. Alaska is a lot closer to Japan than many other sources, so it make sense to sell to the Japanese. The price of crude has to include the cost of shipping it. Much of the oil we import comes from Venezuela and Mexico, which are closer to us than the middle east.
