Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –


President of the United States (POTUS) Donald J. Trump has been tossing around the wordmonopolymore and more this year.  This time, his focus is on oil, OPEC, and his complaint that they’re propping up prices. 

OPEC projects that the strongest annual increases are seen in the near-term, in which total U.S. tight oil increases by an average of 1.4 million barrels a day” annually from this year to 2020, says Fox Business.


OPEC leaders believe that there is a definable window for U.S. oil production. Their organization says shale oil production will peak by the late 2020s. OPEC’s forecast is for U.S. shale growth to peak at 14.3 million barrels a day between 2027 and 2028.  They then project it will fall to an average of 12.1 million barrels a day by 2040.

The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) also expects domestic crude oil production to increase over the next five years.  They then say it will flatten after 2022, staying at about 11 million to 12 million barrels per day through 2050.

Of course, much can occur between now and then.  Fracking emerged in the last decade to reignite American oil production.  Other technologies can emerge in the window of time noted above too. But among the takeaways from this is that even our ‘allies’ and international ‘friends’ monitor and make plans on how to outplay the U.S., just as OPEC did for much of the 1970s through the mid-2010s. The U.S. spies on other nations, including friends, and they spy and do their research on America too.


Let’s close on the POTUS Trump tweet, and provide a link back to what is developing domestically on the anti-monopoly issue.
