F..king IDIOTS!!! Read what supposedly economic experts say about why increasing domestic production WON"T have an affect on gas prices... THEN use some common sense which these IDIOTS HAVE NONE!!! Doug Holtz-Eakin, American Action Forum: Domestic action to increase production will not lower gas prices set on a global market. Pinelopi Goldberg, Yale economist: US domestic policy has only tiny effect on the world price of oil. US foreign policy is probably more relevant than energy policy. Michael Levi, Council on Foreign Relations: The amount of oil you produce at home doesnt affect the price You can lower your vulnerability to price by lowering your consumption of oil, but not by increasing your production. 20 Experts Who Say Drilling Won't Lower Gas Prices | ThinkProgress First of all the first guy showed his stupidity by saying.. "not lower gas prices set on a global market." IDIOT doesn't seem to realize "GAS PRICES are set locally!" i.e. states with oil production AND refineries WILL BE LOWER by shear fact of proximity! IDIOT! But that aside... THINK folks... Assume there was a BIG bucket in your back yard. HOLDS all the gas in the world. Who determines the price when you want to sell some? YOU DO you own it! NOW assume there were 10,000 buckets .. i.e. gas stations around the world? WHO owns the gas in each station?? THE OWNER but they have to sell it cause WHY??? THEY ARE GETTING gas every day and they NEED to move the gas to make room for more gas! SO for these idiot economists to say increasing production has NO affect???? Tell that to the gas station retailers that have to move the gas OR go out of business! MORE GAS coming in means they have to move more gas! MOVE MORE GAS by selling it for LESS... IDIOTS like the above are so OUT of touch!
