Did Trump Just Make American Oil Great Again?
America has been in the grip of the OPEC cartel for far too long. Now, according to the Wall Street Journal, America will become the world's leading oil exporter in the next five years.

"The U.S. will overtake Russia to become the world’s largest oil producer by 2023, accounting for most of the global growth in petroleum supplies...U.S. crude production is expected to reach a record of 12.1 million barrels a day in 2023, up about 2 million barrels a day from this year, said the International Energy Agency, which advises governments and corporations on industry trends. American oil output will surge past Russia, currently the world’s largest crude producer at about 11 million barrels a day.
'The No. 1 overall message, non-OPEC supply growth is very, very strong, which could change the parameters for the oil markets in the years to come, led by the United States, but also Brazil, Canada and Norway,' IEA Executive Director Fatih Birol said Monday during the CERAWeek by IHS Markit energy conference in Houston.
Of the 6.4 million new barrels of oil that will be pumped every day between now and 2023, almost 60% will come from the U.S., the IEA said. 'And I can tell you our expectations may well need to be revised upwards if prices are higher,' Mr. Birol said." 

The fracking revolution happened under Barack Obama, in spite of regulatory efforts to stop it; with the regulatory rollback that has taken place under President Trump, now America can compete and succeed rather than remaining beholden to the Middle East.
