#BREAKING: US Energy Secretary Dan Brouillette announces he has been authorized to expand the Strategic Petroleum Reserves to 1 billion barrels.
Brouillette to meet with Congress today.

1 Billion barrels sounds like a lot, but broken down:
- 1 Billion Barrels in the reserves
- US Oil Consumption = 20.5 million barrels of oil a day
Equals 48.7 days worth of oil.
We should increase the reserves to 5 Billion.
