What sucks is they refine it 60 miles from my house. Cry

My anger at speculation driven oil prices is embarassing. Supply and demand I get but wildly fluctuating prices just for the sake of greed... well I'm concerned that all of this BS is gonna destabilize the world economy to the point where not only the United States but countries like Somalia and Ethiopia are all gonna start making REAL and very drastic mostakes with ramifications we honestly can't see from where we are now. The issues we have with the middle east are not going to get better if we and the rest of the free world go broke.

Wall Street should get the hell out of oil. If you don't have a place to store it you shouldn't be allowed to speculate on it's perceived worth. Does anybody remember Enron? They "created" shortages and blackouts to drive up energy prices in the western states. Those were our people doing that to their own friends and neighbors.

The Government should quit taxing oil to the tune of almost a dollar a gallon in some states.

England, France and the rest of the G20 should be required to build their own Ultra Low Sulphur Diesel refineries instead of the ONLY refineries for ULSD being here in the states. That creates a High demand/Low supply perception that is not based on how much oil we have but how much of it meets the Kyoto accord standards.

I know as well as any of you that nothing has happened in the last two months to run up these prices. It's just another "bubble" not based on anything but a few rich people with access to the media creating a fake shortage.

Thanks for letting me vent. I told you it was embarassing

  The majority of Americans are so uneducated about everything, and so uncaring, the Government and Financiers could probably come up with selling your Parents for Dog Food and they probably wouldnt do anything, or say anything. They just roll over for it all.

Rick, that kinda makes me feel bad but being retired and getting no interest on our savings and the real estate market in the dump I do speculate a little on fuel it is going up anyway and I cannot stop it so I cash in it's not like I make millions on the fuel.
Another thought is we imposed the new fuel on the world they did not impose it on us
Everything is done on speculation I did it one time with cows never will I do that again man was that a killer I didn't eat beef for 2 years lol.
 I do feel bad for you guys I really do and fwiw I think the $5.00 fuel started the mess we have now.

good luck

Oh and another thing. For all of us who still even have 401k's isn't it nice to know that the biggest investors in oil futures by a longshot is none other than..... Our own 401k's

That is weird to think that my 401 k is reaching into one pocket andtaking out dollars (I own a bus that get's 6 mpg) and replacing it with pennies (how much value has your 401k lost since the beginning of this meltdown 40%?  50%?

So you and I have been actually stealing from ourselves because of the current laws that allow financial groups to play oil like a slot machine and then those nice folks down on Wall Street came along and stole whatever was left.

Nice...

Oh and then we bailed them out to the tune of God only knows how many millions.

And just in case that wasn't emough good news on New Years Day, the brilliant move by the fed to "inject" 600 billion more valueless dollars into the world economy a few weeks back made our dollar lose ,ore of it's value which makes Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Iran and all the other members of OPEC raise their prices.

Hold onto your hats the former CEO of BP is "speculating" that 5 dollar oil that an earlier poster quoted. I wonder how many shares of BP his severance package had in it. Probably enough to say that he's not an objective bystander.

I'll quit now, I'm sure you're all bored. It is gonna be a tough summer if oil doesn't recede. We'll be camping in our driveway.

The genius at the Federal Reserve has decided it's good ideal to print another 600 billion dollars this year. Since most oil is imported and the value of the dollar is falling because we are printing so much money, that also contributes rising fuel prices. The government has invested way to many billions in the electric car to allow fuel to say below $3.00.
 $4 to $5 per gallon fuel, well there goes any chance of economy recovery. I could go on about a another page but it's New Year's Eve. I'm going home, fix a good strong Margarita and fall asleep in the chair reading my Series 60 Application / Install manual.  What a party!!!!!!!

This will reach far beyond oil. Hyper-inflation anyone?

Guess I will just have to change my driving habits. Slow down &save fuel and take shorter trips. Smarter planning for trips. Sounds good doesn't it and may happen to some extent. I have come to the reality that I haven't got forever to live and don't plan on leaving my kids anything so will complain and ask for fuel help with others enjoying ride. Lot's of new drilling going on around here! and opening up capped wells.They must be getting ready for better profits.Sign of future. When I made $.95 a hr gas was $.24   when I made $38.50 gas was $2.39. Won't do math . but appears energy has actually taken less of my income from 1960 to my retirement in 2006. Don't misunderstand I don't like high prices!
