Bob -- great to see you thank you for coming and I appreciate it well it's cheaper than dirt right -- YouTube frankly -- being given away natural gas.
Is the president the president of the United States taking advantage of this this gives us a tremendous advantage world larger -- we get on our own resource and get off all the way.
Are we take -- we significantly taking advantage of this cheap resource that we have when oil was so high.
It it is moving that direction that we -- get help in Washington we have -- house.

Wheeler -- all want.
That is three million barrels a day.
By the -- you you did get a majorities are -- in the senate but not this not to sixty majority needed to pass out ahead of sixty instead of 51.

Know what you you're gonna we've got -- actually this thing shut the -- down but they're.
We have funny and that's why some cheap.
We're over we've got we've been so good the -- done such a good job.

Today than we've had in forty years in the United States so -- industry has done an outstanding job.
Now the president says we got to make this the last question is -- going to be a rapid the president says that we only have 2%.
Of the world's reserves.
Of oil and therefore we could drill like crazy for shale oil and perhaps natural gas and everything else in the -- and we still wouldn't make a cut.
In the amount of -- that we have to import well through.
On energy and energy alone that.
We are very near the top and I'm including coal natural gas oil.
