    Naturally. What's your point? Transportation costs are ALWAYS part of the cost of a product. That's nothing new.
    So when is the last time people talking about GW brought up Sulfur or pollution. Nobody says pollution any more it is green house gases.

    So it doesn't bother you that prices increased ?

    How about the trucking companies going out of business the last few years?

    Sulfur dioxide has nothing to do with global warming. When it is ejected into the stratosphere, it can actually help to cool the earth. That's what happens during a volcanic eruption.

    That's BECAUSE we've largely already addressed the air pollution problem associated with things like sulfur. Granted, it's still a problem in places like California and Texas, but in general our air is getting cleaner.

    No. Sometimes that's just the price you have to pay for not destroying the earth. Do you really believe that businesses should be able to belch any kind of pollution they want into our air, soil, and water, just to save a few dollars?

    What about them? That was caused more by the 2008 oil bubble and the collapse of the manufacturing industry (especially the automotive sector), than by any new environmental laws.

    So then green house gases are not pollution?

    Decide for yourself:

    Pollution is the introduction of contaminants into an environment that causes instability, disorder, harm or discomfort to the ecosystem i.e. physical systems or living organisms.[1] Pollution can take the form of chemical substances, or energy, such as noise, heat, or light. Pollutants, the elements of pollution, can be foreign substances or energies, or naturally occurring; when naturally occurring, they are considered contaminants when they exceed natural levels.

    I don't believe prices would drop. The world needs oil. If there was more oil then theres plenty of other nations interested in buying.

    It's dropping right now due to supply increases.

    It seems the terms change to meet the liberal agenda.
