Who jacked up the price of oil?  Whoever it is their names were not on page one.  I did not see anywhere, where OPEC raised the price. My theory is that oil traders and speculators used the old instability in the mid east to claim oil could, maybe, possibly become scarce because of a threat to two percent of the worlds oil.  The oil companies are along for the ride and making bank, but they did not set the price.  Our government  is not doing anything about it because it could effect campaign contributions.  I am waiting for the results of the administrations witch hunt announced earlier this week.  It does not take that long to see where the money is going.

I'm sick of seeing articles trying to justify our climbing gas prices by looking at what others are paying around the world. I don't care if Europe pays 50 dollars a gallon. We don't pay that much in the U.S. There isn't any good reason why the prices have climbed recently... other than greed. I keep reading the same thing... "We should drill"... The thought gets shot down by people saying "It will take ten years"... so then we forget about drilling.. a year from now we will hear "We should drill". WE NEED TO START DRILLING NOW. Stop putting it off & drill. Reduce the costs. Find a better source of energy for our vehicles while drilling & using OUR own oil.

Are these articles designed to make me feel better? Because they don't. Oil company profits are the highest ever and we just keep on buying. Why don't Americans look to better solutions than having the Middle East and big oil rule our lives. Bring our troops home and let the Cabals fight among themselves.

Oh, I almost forgot. What kind of profits did Exxon, etc, show last quarter, something like 60 billion.  Come on people, if it is supply and demand, they just cut the supply (on paper) to keep going up on the price. We are being raped as a nation and our great representatives are going right along with it by letting all this take place. Shame on them, shame on us for allowing it to happen.

It's all a bunch of crap!!!!  We can thank greed from investors and politicians. If they had to pay for their gas instead of being on the tax payers dime. Just like if they had to go on social security like the rest of us , they would fix that real quick. Get ready for another crash in the economy.

Drained Taxpayer! Couldn't agree more! It's past time to take down this 'nouveau aristocracy' with torches and pitchforks if we have to: just like the French did.  The congress and senate and their wealthy supporters all have to go! They've lost touch with the reality of Americans and the people they are supposed to serve.  High gas prices in Europe support their infra-structure. Here, the high prices support only the wind-fall profits of foreign owned oil companies and their greedy CEOs.  Yes, it's time to take back our country and force 'our' government to serve the people once again, and if that means some 'socialism', then so be it! Better than the rampant 'capitalism' we have now.

Big money interests in the form of oil magnates, war profiteers and our paid off politicians have practically sunk this country 100% financially.  Every knowledgeable US citizen and foreign nation knows it too.  So now there is little or no effort to disguise these deceitful, despicable practices that border on Ponzi schemes.  Accordingly, when the USA fails and sinks into oblivion in the near future, these same robber wizards will vanish with all their ill gotten gains to resort playgrounds like the Cayman Islands and others worldwide.  It'll be similar to the mass exodus of the top Nazis out of Germany in May 1945.  Just wait and see.......

I remember when The United States oil Business started capping the producing oil well around the country side because the price of oil was dropping. Well I wonder when they will start thinking about uncapping the reserves that we have and using them and quit paying the outrageous price for foreign oil. Why don't we use what we have? I am sure the American people would like to see even one dollar gas prices again, I know I would.Smile

They did not learn from the recession they put us in , or did not think it was there fault so they are going to do it again ..... If we need to spend our extra money on gas to get to work then how can we spend money on other stuff to keep the economy going ?????

The great thing about a forum like this is at least people will see that we are fed up of being taken advantage of. The worst is yet to come...I say that because it's obvious we will not get relief anytime soon and with the "HURRICAN SEASON" just a few weeks away the "GREEDY" will have even more excuses to put the screws to U.S....

 

Hold tight and carry a lot of vasiline.

 

Oh one more thing....for those of you who can afford to purchase the FANTASTICALLY OVER PRICED ALTERNATIVE FUEL CARS MY HAT IS OFF TO YOU But most of us who are still fortunate to work from check to check cant afford them so where will our relief come from?  I suppose riding bikes! Not an option when most of us commute over 45 minutes to and from work. We'll just bite down hard on a piece of wood and take it like we have been.

 

Cheers..
