I keep seeing these 'drill baby drill' threads all over the net and fail to understand the lack of logic behind such thinking. To even imagine increased US drilling/production will affect global oil pricing, much less US pump pricing, is about as irrational as it gets. There seems to be little understanding by some posters of how commodity market speculation using beat-up USD actually functions, much less how oil is traded, demand points or production costs. Plenty of whining but aside from some posters attempting to pound simple facts into whiner heads, little reality. Must be a failing nationalist syndrome.
