Here's whats funny about all this bullshit, if the supply is tight why are
there not any lines at the gas stations, I remember in 71 or 72 when the
arabs embargoed the US, the stations were closed early and on Sundays.

Instead of going to the moon or mars why doesn't the govermemt build
refinerys on federal land, at least 10 to start. Sure as hell isn't any
crude on Mars or the ****ing moon!

It's not a supply problem. It's just the fact that the market for crude is
controlled by traders who have the rest of us by the short hairs and know
it.

ACtually, $6.10.4 as of money, with a bbc reported average of
90.2p/litre, and monday evenings exchange rate. Remmeber uk and us
gallons are different sizes.

I used the currency converter at http://www.xe.com/ucc/ and the conversion
of 3.7854 L/Gal (US liquid). I went wrong somewhere, because the number with
the rate rate now is $6.18/gallon, which is much closer to your figure than
mine.

Energy companies are posting record profits. This is common knowledge.
They'll use ANYTHING as an excuse to raise the price of oil. A king in
Saudia Arabia dies. We should raise oil prices all over the world. There's a
hurricane PREDICTED to hit the Gulf of Mexico. We should raise oil prices.
You can drive by a gas station on your way to work one morning and on your
way home that same station's gas is ten cents higher per gallon. Same gas in
the underground tanks! :-( Amazing.

If people would stop buying energy/oil companies' stocks, and also start
unloading what they have you'd see gas prices come tumbling down. But it
will never happen because too many people are making big bucks on energy/oil
companies' stocks. No win situation for now.

The explanation at that link does not exactly apply to the current
situation, particularly the part about "Where the Money Goes". Profits are
obscenely higher than 13% for the Oil companies, and the Arabs. Pauls
explanation is exactly correct. We thought we were in a bad way when OPEC
was controlling the price. We didn't know when we were well off. OPEC
certainly could make it higher if they chose to, but they can no longer make
it drop significantly, no matter how much they increase production. The
traders and speculators are currently controlling that, and probably will
for the forseeable future as manufacturing in the third world continues to
grow. There is no shortage in the short term, but there is a large increase
in demand.
