    Yeah, let's blame OPEC now. Let's blame oil companies, OPEC, investors....

    Let's blame everyone but ourselves for allowing our government to treat our currency like the toilet paper that it ultimately is.

    In a few years or less, when we're paying $10/gal for milk, let's blame the cows for not fucking more to create more cows to dispense more milk.

    Hey, and let's complain about refineries hurting our environment, while we simultaneously complain that we pay too much for gasoline that, after it's completed cycle in an internal combustion engine, hurts the environment.

    Can't argue with you. I was around during the 70 " gas shortage." When it was over, we forgot and went back to our gas hogs. We have other paid lip service to conservation and alternate energy sources.

    Makes as much sense as invading Iraq and helping the Iranians. Your boy justified that, now didn't he?

    While I don't particularly care for OPEC either, it's not OPECs supply that is the problem. They've made numerous statements that the supply is not down... It's also a stretch to suggest that consumer demand for oil has increased sharply. I refuse to believe that demand has increased so much as to cause the price per barrel to rise 40 dollars per barrel in 6 months. A devaluation of the U.S. dollar added to price manipulation has caused this problem. We need to become independent of ME oil and hold our gov. more accountable for creating this mess.

    The next President is going to have real challenge. The dollar is sinking, we are definitely in a recession, and of coursehere is always bush's war that we ned to contend with.

    Maybe we could just send him a bill for 500 Billion Dollars.
