    Yep, Iran would love to see higher prices, as well as liberals....Meanwhile those of us who cling to our paychecks weekly to make our livings suffer...Why do you libs hate the middle class and the poor?

    Are you under the impression that a military strike on Iran would lower gas prices?

    Are you under the impression that Iran's nuclear program is peaceful?

    Well, a sane energy policy would absolutely lower oil pricing. The way we do that is devolop our own oil resource, as well as supporting the Israelli's taking out of the Nuke facilities.

    We can begin with dropping the nonsense surrounding the Keystone II pipeline.

    Do you understand what happens to domestic production if the PPB goes down?

    BTW.. Keystone is strictly an export pipeline.. It won't increase US supply or lower the cost at the pump.

    Higher production does not necessarily mean lower prices as you can see we produced more barrels of oil in 2010 than in 2004 United States Crude Oil Production by Year (Thousand Barrels per Day) yet gas prices are drastically higher, it's a much more complex issue than simply supply and demand. Israel taking military action against Iran would most likely mean chaos in the Middle East which would certainly drive up gas prices.

    The Keystone pipeline would be great for economic activity inside the States but as far as having an affect on gas prices doubtful at best. Most of the oil would be exported to China regardless.

    If that is what you believe to be a sane energy policy, then there's no rational debate to be had. Why do you hate intellectuals?

    Nonsense, we buy oil from a world market at a world market price. Adding to that market would drop the price, and thus our cost, not to mention adding much needed jobs.

    The real truth here is that any real viable alternative energy is decades from being able to even compete with oil, and in order to make it cost viable, liberals must advocate higher prices, and block anything that that would cause that, even if that means they need to lie, and keep poor people from getting much needed jobs to do it....

    Most so called 'intellectuals' are more legend in their own mind. I have little use for such self inflated jerks.
