  • Exactly. And with the new energy bill congress just passed they gave billions in tax breaks to the oil companies at a time when they are making record profits. 

    I finally get my first car I've had in 10 years. And wouldn't you know it, with gas and tolls its cheaper for me to take the train to the beach!

  • As much as would like to blame GW for the current problem it's not his fault. The current World Wide consumption is at an all time high. With countries like china and India growing economically and consuming more and more oil it's only going to get worse. most of OPEC is at or near maximum production so they can't help to stabilize prices.
    On a side note if IRAQ was to become stable and with significant investment they could help. Which is why I think the war really happened in the first place. This trend of higher gas consumption has been going on for a while. last I heard they are producing near the capacity of the prewar limit imposed on them by the oil for food program which is like 10-20%.
    Trust in the board.

  • i just want to point out that it's a lot more complicated than just iraq.. i mean, that's not really what i was referring to...  more along AJ's comments about the energy bill and most importantly currency and monetary policy.  I'm not gonna go into it other than to say that GW is never on the wrong side of a policy from the perspective of oil&gas.  Getting him & cheney in the WH was the best investement the industry has made in 30 years.  Do you think it's a coincidence that oil is >$60 a barrel?  Do you think it's mere chance that i bought into oil at $14 and doubled-down when GW was elected?  DO you know how many hedge funds are still long oil futures?

    As an aside, I am kinda happy that oil is priced so high.  maybe it will finally make alternative energies cost competitive and force some energy spending habits to change and get some SUV guzzlers off the road..  It's a double-edged sword though, cause now there's more pressure to start exploring and drilling in new environmentally sensitive areas.  ANWR will probably be compromised this year.
