96. They can't win that war really.
Let's remember something here, we could just as easily nationalize fuel distribution in this country by buying up barrels of oil ourselves and once these companies leave the US using those wonderful government takeovers of land to basically take back the refineries here on US soil. We could re-employ all Americans put out of work by such nonsense as well.

Or we could impose tariffs so damn high that we still make up the difference.

Even with India and China growing in terms of oil usage, no company will want to fuck with us and cut themselves off from their biggest source of demand and sales.

It's a game of chicken and if they play it they might as well go out of business.
