拜登总统下令国内石油公司必须要增加石油生產， 否则将会以高税来惩罚所得，总统在记者会上表示 ，这些破纪录之高利润， 并非来自科技之更新，而是发了战争财。
期中选举即将到来， 油价仍然居高不下， 拜登认為这些石油公司有责任為自己的社区和国家，及消费者的利益而增加石油供应， 否则他们将被课徵重税 ，即便目前政府增税依法无据 ，但是政府仍会考虑如何和国会议员协商增税。目前全国平均油价是三元七十六分 ，比去年同期高出三十六分 ，但比六月份之五元零二分低得多。
两大石油公司简直是赚翻了 ，雪佛兰到第三季度净利润112亿美元， 埃桑克是197亿美元，拜登总统感到这些高利润简直令人难予置信。民主党在此关键时刻， 只有把油价和物价抑制下来， 才有可能在期中选举得胜， 但是这些石油公司是否遵从只有拭目以待了。
ITC Twenty-Year Anniversary Kickoff Party
Last Friday we held a kickoff party for the ITC 20th Anniversary 2022 Gala. Nearly 200 friends attended the warm reception, including our Gala Chair, Judge Robert Eckels, Congressman Al Green, Commissioner Jack Cagle, several consuls general and many chamber of commerce presidents.
Over the past twenty years, the International Trade Center has held hundreds of activities of all sizes, including academic seminars, business meetings and has served more than ten thousand small businesses in this region. Because of all these contributions, we won a community service award from former President Obama.
Today we have a new vision to integrate the platform of our trade center through our media group to expand into financial services. This new integrated platform will be used to reach our new goal of setting foot on the international stage.
We are so fortunate that so many of our business partners have been with us throughout the last so many decades.
The huge wheel of history has always been rolling forward. We are here to catch the opportunity to serve our community and our country.
