So why is the whole world suffering from rising gas prices while oil companies again record huge profits?

Your pointing a finger at the wrong shortage. Oil isn't the problem. Refined petroleum is. Would Keystone have carried refined gasoline, or raw crude?

Does having more raw material help when the shortage is of the completed product? The current issues isn't raw oil in the US or Globally. It's that globally refineries turned down what they made during the covid issue and now we globally are returning to normal consumption.
Now we're getting into the labor shortage fueled by unemployment bonuses, vaccine mandates, and an eviction moratorium.

I liked the internet in the days before memes. Before everybody was on the internet and browsing facebook. When the internet was for nerds and nobody really used the word troll. Now facebook memes as facts is makin everybody retarded.
