it would be fantastic if they opened a new refinery in Louisiana somewhere. The ones in operation are at full capacity and its causing alot of problems.
Of course they will never do this and the result is stations running out of fuel because we cant get any product.

Running out of fuel? I haven't heard of this... where are you located Innotech?

I agree we need a few new refineries. It seems that I read somewhere recently though that there are no plans to build any new ones. Too bad, it would provide well-paying jobs and we really need those right now.

Supplies are great right now, indeed. The cost to build a new refinery is epic compared to just expanding current ones-- if it needs to be doen.

things have been really slow for my hubby, he is a driver that delivers to the docks, land rigs, etc.. and it never did pick up.. but the big boss says that it is coming. But it sure is killing us his doing only a couple of loads a week. He has even started doing apps for OTR again.

Usually it picked up after tax time was over and stayed steady thru Oct or nov.. you get used to those big paychecks.. and wow what a sticker shock. We spent all of our savings during hurricane season last year.

I hardly see how you can sell homes with that poor sentence structure, syntax, and grammar! Its OK, I make mistakes too. However, if you are conducting any form of real estate business on the forum, don't get rushed! Try to speak clearly!

I'm glad to see that your husband is doing well! I've heard of his company, in the Lafayette metro. A lot of companies in the upstream sector are hiring.

Even if you already have a college degree (even liberal arts) and want to try to get a good job, I'd seriously consider a 2-yr. Associates/Community College degree to get some of these jobs offshore. The hiring process is extensive but the money is pretty steady.

I hire a bunch of experienced workers in non-related fields and pay is around 14-22, depending on experience. People with associates/training and some college can make around 17 assuming they want to do some real work.

Also, the V Vehicle plant in Monroe will have some good work. I'd get into job training. Now! Consider getting an electrician's license or take the certified exam. I know a college student, who struggled to find a job, took a night course, passed the exam, and works for a local plant making what I believe to be more than $25/hour which is good for a General Studies degree!

Good luck to anyone hurting, in need of job, as well as your husband, Melissa. I hope you stick around the forums!

My husband is in oil production in the Gulf. He works for Helix ESG, and their company is profiting and even starting new projects. We aren't at all worried about his job security. *knock on wood*

And good grief, I am a medical transcriptionist, so I know all about bad grammar/punctuation grating on your nerves, but TACT is a virtue.

My post was nothing but class. Perhaps you should read it again to clear up your misunderstanding?

I enjoy seeing how you believe it is your business, "becoming." You call me out on a very blunt, yes, but solid comment that applies to her situation. You take the one blunt sentence and seperate it from the rest. If anything I being helpful and courteous to Melissa and asked that you view the post again, I only assume you read the first sentence.

I do not know if you know this, but many realtors post on this forum, and if she wants the advantages of that, she should speak more clearly. I, as a prospective homebuyer, value the compentence of my realtor's grammar while conducting herself. I pointed out Ms. Mellisa's mistakes in her postings so that she could aware of it and might choose to structure her comments more appropiately if she chooses to do so in the future.

If Ms. Melissa's username had not been, "sellyourhomew/Melissa," no comment would have been made! I was simply pointing out that she needs to conduct official business on this forum with good grammar and spelling.

It is true that I cannot fathom how she sells homes unless she has a native language that is not English. It was not your business to call me out.

Ms. Melissa, I do hope you get to respond! I hope you're not offended by my statements.

Have a great day!
