Iraqi oil sums just don't add up !!

Gas shortages in Iraq today reported on Yahoo:

Iraqi oil sums just don't add up !! For those of you too lazy or stupid to do the sums...... see below

Iraqis play second fiddle in the great US oil swindle !!!!
Are we to believe that 44 millions of gallons of gas are going missing everyday, is the insurgency problem so big that 9 tenths of the oil isn't getting through?

Another example that this is the greatest theft of all time, no money is going back into building Iraq, they can't even use their own products because the evil empire is stealing it !!

No refinery capability required in Iraq as the Crude is heading offshore to the USA !!

Oil shortages hit Iraq with onset of summer heat
by Kamal Taha Sun May 28, 7:48 AM ET

"The daily consumption of gasoline reaches 20 million liters (five million gallons) for the country, of which six to seven million is for Baghdad," where six million people live, said Jihad. "And supply is well below demand."
Found this: those of you in the know should figure how many litres are in a barrel of oil

2.5 million barrels a day =

2.5 million times * 19.5 gallons of gasoline * 9 gallons of fuel oil * 4 gallons of jet fuel * 11 gallons of other products

= a 49 gallon barrel

Which is is 44 million gallons of gas gone missing ???

Here is the rough estimate of Iraq output, the pre war levels were 4% shy of the lower 2.5 mil level taking the lowest number ever 37 million gallons which leaves us with a shortfaill subtracting Iraq needs of 32 million gallons.

Iraq's daily oil output falls short of Cheney's predictions
May 19, 2004

New York - Iraq's daily oil output in the year since the overthrow of Saddam Hussein has fallen as much as a million barrels short of the 3 million barrels that US vice-president Dick Cheney predicted.

Cheney, who for five years headed Houston-based Halliburton, the largest oilfield services provider, said in April last year that Iraq should be able to produce 2.5 million to 3 million barrels a day, "hopefully by the end of the year".

Iraq in December pumped 1.98 million barrels a day, based on Bloomberg data.

I didnt' see anything in that article about gallons, though I did see something about 1.98 million barrels, which isn't TOO short of 2.5 million.

USA is there for a reason, and that's probably not freedom/democracy/WMD. US will probably be getting cheaper iraqi oil sooner or later. It's sad, but that's what happens when people elect money hungry leaders.

Although this thread doesn't do shit to prove it. A=B so B=C, that's some nice logic.

I doubt that, even as the number of barrels from Iraq increases, the world wide demand is increasing at a fast enough rate to negate any effects of Iraqi oil.
