    It does not mean of course that prices tommorow would be less then today
    Correction noted, thanks! However, if some people want to eliminate public health protections to allow more drilling, then we have other costs that go up as a result.

    Certainly

    Poluted drinking water, contamination left in farmers fields, heavy metals being left to get in rivers. The mass of environmental problems that can arise from unfettered oil and gas production is not often thought of by people not familar with the industry. Or if they are, they are unconcerned as it will affect other people

    Speculators are aware that the US passed peak oil in 1970. That was the last year the US produced as much oil as we consumed. They already know it is not possible for the US to increase world supply beyond the ever increasing world demand.

    Hey everybody, if you vote for me, I'll get fuel prices below one dollar. Seriously, write my name in on the ballot. I have an amazing plan. My plan is a lot like Bachmann's but does everything more aggressively. It'll work!

    I see that you failed to mention that my plan would not work. Additionally, it's so nice to finally hear a lib admit that environmental laws are essentially a tax on the middle class. BTW: removing all environmental and governmental regulation, it would only take 6 months to build a new refinery. It is the "REGULATION" which slows down the process to a crawl.

    Who cares what speculators are assuming, speculating on life essential needs " oil, food,ect" should be made illegal, speculators are nothing more then blood sucking leaches feeding off of the poor and elderly

    Heavily subsidized doesn't sound ANYTHING like socialism. Nope, not at all...
    The land required is either already owned by the oil companies or the government itself. So the eminent domain argument is moot.

    Please explain how excusing any business from Federal taxes is socialism?

    Please explain how letting oil companies drill on public land at below market prices is not socialism?

    Corporatism is socialism for corporations rather then for people.

    Why should we believe that you can pray twice as hard as Bachmann?
