Since you invited me, I will opine!

I believe that all representatives and congressmen that have served over the past twenty years should be convicted of treason and hung by the neck until dead. This would be for their crimes committed against the united states by creating the energy situation that we are in today.

With that being said, we must do a few things to start the ball rolling in the right direction.

1) Repeal all laws restricting drilling in ANWR and off of our coasts.
2) Build some refineries. Oil is useless without a way to turn it into fuel.
3) Embrace nuclear energy. We made a few bad films about Nuclear that devastated the industry.
4) Dump the subsidy and mandate for "food to fuel" programs. Admit it was a bad idea.

If we embrace some of these ideas, we may see some relief down the road. If not, we won't.

I saw yesterday where the House passed a bill allowing us to sue OPEC. That is simply insanity. If anyone should be sued it should be the idiots in Washington.

Ok I'm done. I have to go to work now. ;-)

And fuel will probably get pricier when Congress passes the CLIMATE CHANGE SECURITY ACT.

One other idea is to repeal the laws that require something like 8 or 9 different gasoline formulations depending on where you live in the U.S.

This from the AP wire a few minutes ago:


NEW YORK - Oil prices bolted to a new record above $132 a barrel Wednesday after the government reported that supplies of crude oil and gasoline fell unexpectedly last week. And crude's rise in the futures market again pressured consumers by pulling prices at the pump higher — a gallon of regular gas rose overnight to a new record above $3.80 a gallon.

In its weekly inventory report, the Energy Department's Energy Information Administration said crude oil inventories fell by more than 5 million barrels. Analysts had expected a modest increase. Gasoline inventories also fell and took the market by surprise.

Light, sweet crude for July delivery was up more about $3, rising as high as $132.08 a barrel in late morning trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange.

At the pump, the average national price of a gallon of regular gas rose 0.7 cent overnight to a record $3.807 a gallon, according to a survey of stations by AAA and the Oil Price Information Service. Prices are 60 cents higher than a year ago, and many forecasters believe they'll hit $4 on a national basis at some point over the next month. Prices are already that high in many parts of the country, and the number of stations charging $4 or more rises each day.

Diesel fuel rose 1.9 cents to its own record price of $4.558 a gallon Wednesday. Rising prices of diesel, used to transport most consumer and industrial goods, are sending prices of food and many other goods higher.

This WAS just an unpleasant inconvenience. But I'm getting really concerned. If this continues ($127 on mon, $129 yesterday and $132 this morning) it'll bring down our whole economy! It's getting serious folks - way beyond merely affecting travel schedules!!

This a deep-seated problem and, indeed, needs govt attention - and quickly!

Here is an interesting article on reasons for the prices and why they will not go down much if any.

$200.00 a barrel of oil will separate the men from the boys. Members of OPEC are chomping at the bit for it.

If you can't run with the BIG DOGS, staying home in the rocking chair, will be the remedy for some.

Although there are many factors, world oil demand is a big one.

In our ceaseless quest for low prices (forget quality) for anything we buy, we have succeeded in making a shrine of Wal*Mart. Walmart gets its stuff from China. China's getting rich. China wants to drive cars now. OUR money is over there fighting with us for the oil.

I hope we're all happy now with our cheap shoes, thin underwear, and $5 gas.
