    Now you know why america is going back into the ME. There is no way more soldiers is going to improve stability. And so, more soldiers will die so somebody can make a profit in texas.
    Strangely enough these capitalists have no trouble sleeping at night. Maybe if they were forced to count their dividends in body bags...?

    Hate to interrupt your Michael Moore impression, but did you know that crude prices were in triple digits when we began our reengagement (bombing campaign and US personnel on the ground) in the Middle East?

    You DO realize the VAST MAJORITY of all this shale exploration is being done on private property, right ?

    Wait, you weren't one of those people that were sucked in Obama's promises of opening up more Federal lands for Natural gas exploration were you ?

    Remember ? His promises je made in Colorado prior to his re-election ?

    Lol ! You were weren't you ?

    And at that time, you would never complain about the price of gas, amirite?

    Does this mean the government will have to increase subsidies to the oil companies?

    And right you are. The Big Oil spin will be interesting to watch.

    Maybe the governor will use state time and resources in leading everyone to pray for higher prices....because it worked so well when he did it to end the drought.....

    Do you object to companies keeping more of their money?

    I object to the public being taxed to provide them subsidies.

    Its not all OPEC that is reducing oil prices, a lot of it is greater efficiency in the US auto fleet:



    Those much maligned CAFE standards are actually saving more oil than we are bringing to market with tight oil like shale and tar sands.

    Shale oil helped bring gas prices down to 2.50 a gallon (where I'm at). I'd call that a good thing.
