    Without knowing what oil prices are going to do over the next 6 months or so, we're largely just guessing, yeah. But my guess is that U.S. production continues to climb some in 2015, just not at the rate it would have had prices remained $90 - $100 -ish. That said, I think I'd agree with you that we don't get to an all-time high for U.S. production. We've increased production in the ballpark of a million barrels per day average for the last 3 years, 2014 will probably be a little above 8-1/2 mbpd (maybe 8.6 or so). I'd guess we don't get another million bpd bump for 2015, which is about what we'd need.
    Nearly all success in electoral politics boils down to convincing people that you recognize that they are not the problem, that someone or something else is.

    The hits are starting to become evident..... Fortunately (I hope) for us, we're seeing a tremendous uptick in the construction of offshore wind farm support vessels, offsetting to a large extent, the cutbacks in the very similar off shore oil support vessels.

    Weíre tempted to suggest a conspiracy here ó but itís just liberals agreeing yet again that conservatives have hidden, evil motives, because modern liberals simply canít conceive of any other reason to disagree with the liberal consensus.
