Plaintiffs in an antitrust class action over oil prices have asked a federal judge in Nevada to force Pioneer Natural Resources to hand over communications involving its embattled former CEO Scott Sheffield that it gave to the U.S. Federal Trade Commission.

The FTC last week approved Exxon Mobil’s $64 billion purchase of Dallas-based Pioneer, but the agency barred Sheffield from Exxon’s board over allegations that he tried to collude with OPEC to reduce output of oil and gas in order to boost his company’s profits.

The case is Rosenbaum v. Permian Resources, U.S. District Court, District of Nevada, No. 2:24-cv-00103-MMD-MDC.

Good. I’m looking forward to this.

There was broad consensus in 2021 and 2022 that oil production was unnaturally slow to respond to market forces. Conservatives were just blaming Biden for it like usual.

I’d love to see what’s behind the redactions in the FTC’s complaint.

Consumers want lower gas prices. This is just well funded libs making us all poor again, not consumers.

They want all of America to pay high gas price like in Cal.

Also, I don’t know how NOAA keeps records but I imagine they are as honest as the FBI with russian collusion. It’s been really cold the last few years. We got snow in May!

We need Trump back in with his Drill Baby Drill philosophy.

As for Global warming…Nonsense.

I’m 71 years old and every august is hot.

Some more than others.

It’s just weather.

All climate change is natural not man made!

Nothing to worry about.

I reread the links in my OP to make sure.

I do not understand how replies about climate change are relevant to the anti-trust lawsuit.
