Would be great if the rest of the oil companies would take a lesson from ol Hugo since we are not out of crude, we just have a lack of refineries. There hasnít been a refinery built in the good ol USA since 1978 if my memory recall is right.
One of the finest thing Hugo done for his country is Oil
Yep, credit where credit is due. He did manage to strong arm oilmen to quit the greeedy BS
Obama wants to increase oil productionPresident Obama has assembled an astute team of experts to help increase U.S. Oil Production. Tim Robbins, Steve Carell, Sean Penn and Popeye The Sailor Man are just the men he needs.. Member reactions:
I think Popeye was one of the first Navy Seals too.....
Yes, he was, Disasterman. Glad I could make you laugh.
Ever onward El Prezidente & long-live Popeye the OilMan. Very crisp & clean rendition of this Asstoot panel.
Thanks, geriatric. Love your spelling of "astute." You're a funny dude.
geriatric. You're far from an idiot. Idiots can't write funny lines.
Thanks, g-man, but I didn't win anything.
Thanks, Newsy. Can't have an oil commission without Popeye.
The price of crude oil has hit a 2.5 year high this week on news that the Libyan revolt had caused large disruptions in the OPEC nation's oil supplies ó potentially up to three-quarters of output. If this trend continues, a can of oil is going to be more expensive than a can of Coke.
Remake famous drinks (milk, soda drinks, wines, mineral water, juices, etc.) to be made from oil, and gasolin. Try to come up with appropriate names and packaging (cans, bottles) for them, and show new marketing posters, billboards etc.
BP (British Petroleum) is under fire for creating the biggest ecological disaster in history. The spilled oil amount in Mexican Gulf is so massive that it's about to reach Florida while the BP's efforts to seal the oil tanker pipe have been unsuccessful. BP's shares lost over $40 billion (about 25% of their value) since the oil spill catastrophe.
Show how BP can spill and contaminate with oil about anything - famous places, products, food, movies, paintings, people and animals, etc. Try to include BP logo in your submissions. Here's a good example by Destonio.
The price of crude oil has hit a record high of $81 this Tuesday, on fears of the supply decrease by OPEC countries, and the US dollar devaluation. The expected cut in interest rates by US Federal Reserve is going to affect the crude oil price further and economists predict a price of $85 per barrel soon. The United States remains the biggest energy consumer in the world market. If this trend continues, a can of oil is going to be more expensive than a can of Coke.
Remake famous drinks (milk, soda drinks, wines, mineral water, juices, etc.) to be made from oil, and gasolin. Try to come up with appropriate names and packaging (cans, bottles) for them (Coca Oil, Dr. Oiler, Mountain Oil, etc.), and show new marketing posters, billboards etc.
Russia has claimed its rights to the Arctic and sent a submarine to the Noth Pole which will plant a capsule with Russian Flag into the Arctic seabed, claming the ownership of the area. Recent tests showed that Arctic seabed oil deposits total to 10-16 billion barrels of oil - as much as 25% of remaining "black gold" deposits on the planet.
At the moment no country posesses the necessary technology to extract oil from the Noth Pole seabed under 7 miles of water and ice, however it is only a matter of time before such technology is developed. With Arctic ice melting significantly in the last decades, the Polar area is becoming more open for exploration. Unites States, Canada and other countries are likely to dispute the Russian ownership of the Arctic and its fuel resources.
Photoshop anything related to extraction, refinery, and sales of the Arctic oil. Examples may include North Pole refineries on the ice, underwater gas stations, magazine covers about the event, changed names and logos of oil producers, and others.
The price of oil may reach $100 as early as next year unless OPEC members
unexpectedly increase production.
Higher oil prices mean higher revenues for energy producers like
Exxon Mobil Corp., and higher costs and more bankruptcies among the
airlines. US and other oil importing countries may expect accelerated
inflation and devaluation of currencies.
Let us imagine that oil always ruled the world even in the medieval
days. Photoshop works of art (paintings, sketches, or statues) - to
include any elements connected to oil - refineries, gas stations, etc.
You are encouraged to show oil being worshipped, angels with gas
pumps, people praying for oil, etc. Feel free to change characters in paintings with politicians and celebrities.
