It is criminal what we are paying, even if this were not true. we need to eliminate the 535 members of congress and start over. it's pretty bad when the mob has more integrity than our government. If these lard [email protected]@es would get off of theirs once in their miserable lives, we might have a quality of life like we used to have.

But yes, I have heard about this as well.

Of course there is no real shortage. The shortage is artificial. Because of the environmentalist and the power they have over the government the oil company’s can’t drill where the oil is. They have to settle for the very difficult places like 10,000 foot off shore wells etc. The cost of drilling goes up, so goes fuel cost. By limiting the drilling we are forced to buy from OPEC, and we all know how they feel about free trade pricing.:hehe:

You do realize that rising cost should only be responsible to overcome the rise in overhead, not used to produce record profits.

The real question is How do we get our government to do something before this country is in a recession. We are headed for one now. Problem is when was the last time someone from congress or the President actually paid for their own gas ? when was the last time they paid for oil ? they don't even know what the prices are for oil, gas or food. Someone shops for them and we foot the bill. It really bothers me when I hear stuff like this and we can't do anything about it.

That's why the founding fathers wanted a government by the poeple, of the people, for the poeple. That means no career politicions let alone 2nd generation politicion.

Wow...I don't even know where to start.

- Who the &#!$ are these quaker oats characters in his audience?
- How the hell are his "author, lecturer" credentials in any way convincing? Oh wait, he was the chaplain for BP! What a joke!
- Does he have any geology education?
- Does he understand the other variables that impact oil prices?

I could go on. Believing this is some grand conspiracy may be nice and clean and easy to wrap your head around, but it's far more complex than that. Rather than getting all cozy with these what-if's, why the hell can't we as a nation focus on what IS -- oil price is driven by a commodities market. Oil is a finite resource, regardless of whether you think we're near the end or not. We currently get most of it from people who don't like us. There are other energy options out there, especially for us diesel folks.

This guy has been reading Revelation a little too much. Look out! They're coming after you...

Don't get me wrong, I'm not defending the oil companys. The mark up percentage wise on a gallon of gas or diesel is a lot less than many other products we buy. Try software or the CD you just bought. The profits come from the incress in demand. This last holiday was some kind of a record for the drop in fuel usage. Check the profits in a month or two. :thumb:
