The oil companies tried to make a killing by raising prices, but transportation businesses ground to a halt.

Government interference in the energy market place restricts supply, Government budget fraud, government bookeeping fraud, government inflation and looting of the taxpayer by both parties has destroyed the value of our currency. Both parties are ardent socialists, hate the very voters they must pander to for votes, and will use high energy prices to increase their power and extract ever more of the national income. All socialists have a death wish. American socialists are no different.

If you tried to reduce your reliance on the “left wing fringe elements”, and maybe tried to use fewer words, (which means trying to find the core of your arguement) then your line of reasoning might start to make a tiny bit of sense. But right now, it doesn’t.

Secretly behind closed doors the final resolutions are being put together to set the next phase of Energy Independence for the US.
This Month the motion is being put forth to set standards on auto production / numbers for alternative requirements for all Auto Manufactures selling Light Trucks and Cars in the US, a specific time line will be imposed on all. This will send significant waves through the Oil Market as need for crude oil will significantly be reduced / the US market could even at the 2025 Mark support its own demand.
2015 – 25% of all Light Trucks and Autos sold in the US must run on alternative fuels.
2020 – 50% –
2025 – 75% –
2030 – 95% –

Would not hold onto my Oil stocks too long!

Do your homework before you spread more misinformation. Jeb and George Bush blocked drilling off of Florida’s coast. I suggest you also RESEARCH the facts about unused leases owned by Exxon in Alaska and in the Gulf of Mexico. There are literally hundreds of new leases that are not being exploited but are cited as unused assets on the books to push stock prices. Not only that, but for three consecutive years ’00,’01,’02, the US State Department was offered $12 Billion USD to implement refinery paperwork and certifying and other pre-construction costs to help private oil companies justify their investment. The State Department never responded to the surprise of the Saudis who offered the money with no strings. China, on the other hand, did respond to the offers.

Judeo-Christian ethic?

What tripe. What political opportunism. No wonder the rats are scurrying away from the republican party as fast as possible.

Regulators should intervene in these futures market just like they are doing it with short naking of securities. Speculators are playing on a commodity they do not own and for which they don’t even have the money to finance physical delivery.

What are you people talking about, duck parts. The lot of you are too arrogant to see we need smart thinker, not more polerizations. Stop being pundants and start being AMERICANS.
There’s a lot of work to be done and time is running out. DCs Dumbo’s and JackAsses are not helping. We need to vote for our country this November, not a freaking party line.
If we could channel our resources to finding an alternative (Hydrogen, Electric, Coal to Liquid)and find or partner with a non-OPEC supplier (Iraq, Canada, Brazil)we might get through the tough times, a little easier.
Keep fighting, party lines and get nowhere.

LETS BE AMERICANS

The Pelosi, Reed and the Democrats took over the Congress in 2006 and have done absolutely nothing to help this country. All the left wing media talks about is the President’s approval rating and how low it is. Well, Congress’s approval rating is half of the President’s, but you never here about that. This past May, the Senate made it illegal to produce oil from the largest shale deposit in the world-contained right here in the good ol USA-ILLEGAL. With the new technology available it would cost well below the current overblown market value of crude. We cannot drill of our own coastline but Cuba and China can?!!!! WE ARE IN THIS POSITION BECAUSE OF STUPID DEMOCRATIC POLICIES OF THE PAST AND PRESENT. Something has to be done. They all need to be fired. The country needs an energy plan and we need it now. DRILL HERE. DRILL NOW. PAY LESS!!!

The reason you are paying what you are at the pump is due solely to greed. A government agency, the CFTC (Commodities Futures Trading Commission), is not policing the very laws that have been enacted to prevent this speculation in commodities markets that have produced prices that are not supported by the rules of “supply and demand.” (If we are using 25% less gasoline than a year ago as a country, why is the price climbing above $4 a gallon?) Simple greed, coupled with media mis-representations of “what the problem really is…” (China & India energy “demands”), are steering all of us away from the fact that a monetarily influential group of investors, with money, of course, are forcing prices upward, by way of illegal investments, in the commodities market. Read more, folks….the investment banks and pension funds are now squealing about being “restricted” in their movements, at your expense. BusinessWeek.com has published several articles about how our livelihoods are being negatively impacted by this speculation. Why else would Morgan Stanley say “oil per barrel is going to reach $150 a barrel” if they were not one of the major players in this particular part of the problem….C’mon folks, its your lives, and wallets, being negatively impacted. Read, folks, read…
