We can agree to disagree. I am hardly a shill for "Big Oil". I find it hilarious that some people want the oil companies to solve our energy problems. Would your company invent a cheaper product so they could make less. The only way out of this is good old American ingenuity. It's kind of like this. We Americans have wrapped bacon all over are johnson's. "Big Oil" is a Pit Bull. We looked cool jumping around for awhile. Now..."Big Oil" just locked on. Moral; Don't strap bacon on your johnson and tease a Pit Bull !!!

Ha ha that's funny "crudely" said!!!!!!! No but seriously I am just so sick of everyone's arrogance thinking that everyone is out there to personally make there lives harder. Fact is we live in an overall very good world. Usually the only people you hear giving you "facts" about this issue are people that are ignorant to the whole issue. I know it is a fact because I know alot of people that work for the oil companies. The oil companies are doing nothing but good hard work, trying to get things back to normal. It's the libs that are doing everything in their power to make them look evil.

Fact is all of you are wrong. Industrialization is a major reason for rising costs. However the major reason the big oil companies are rising costs is to fund researching and implementing alternative means of fuel. Back about this time last year the first meeting took place with the U.N. and the big oil companies to try and figure out a way to get prices at an affordable range. The oil companies themselves, since became the major contributors to this research. They know just as well as we do that if alternative means are put on the market and they are cheaper and more efficient that they are basically going to go out of business. Not to mention they also know that the rise in the number of natural disasters are linked to drilling too far down for oil. They are human just like the rest of us and they don't want to live for money in their short lives, only to have their families killed off from man-made natural disasters. However I see that everyone has became conspiracy theorists and you all think they are in this just for the buck. The one thing you need to remember about conspiracy theorists is they always believe that there is someone so much smarter than them out there creating these conspiracies. Kind of odd huh, since you think you are so smart and know all of the answers? I am not trying to be a jerk but you all need to realize that these people are people with families also and when it comes down to it given the choice between money and survival what do you think they are going to pick? So go ahead and think what you want but all of you are wrong. These high profits are going towards noble research to fuel all people at a less costly and more efficient way and that is all there is to it. If you want to blame someone for all of this taking place it ain't the oil companies fault it is that money hungry alcoholic in the White House causing all of this.
