Where I Share My Thoughts On This Journey Called Life

Somebodies Pulling My Leg!

The other day, I read a news article in which one of the top executives of one of the oil companies told Congress that he believed oil should only cost $60 a barrel. That day, oil was trading on the open market for $100 per barrel. somebodies pulling my leg!

There are two problems with the price of gas in this country and supply and demand has NOTHING to do with it. We have a government that has tried to stop any new exploration for oil in this country, both onshore and offshore. We also have speculators in the commodities markets who are driving the prices up. These events have nothing to do with how much or how little we are driving in this country!

I fact, every time some third world dictator blows his nose the wrong way, the price of oil skyrockets. the fact is, that we have enough oil in the ground on United States controlled land to supply this country with fuel for many years! We don’t even need the oil from the Arab countries!

I do realize that we need to invest in and explore alternative energies, but that doesn’t need to happen by putting our people in this country in greater financial difficulty by artificially keeping the price of fuel high.

I am fed up with Washington politics. I am neither Democrat or Republican. In my opinion, we should vote all of them out not year from the President on down through the Congress and take back our govt. Maybe then our voices could be heard above the special interest groups that rule Washington now!

I don’t know about you, but I’m sick and tired of being lied to by both sides of this issue. Yes, somebody is pulling my leg and I wish they would let go of my leg!

  1. I totally agree. Even though I understand that there are a lot of factors involved, something’s wrong when the oil companies report “record profits.”

    Welcome to the blogosphere.
