#6 And speculators. And the Koch Brothers.
Absolutely nothing to do with an incoherant and scattered energy policy led by an administration bragging about the country being better off with $5+ per se gallon.
Gota problem wit that? Fill your tires and go buy a voltswagon.

#7 Also ignore printing 1.6 trillion to 'pump' the economy followed by QE1, QE2, and on going stealth QE3. Inflation, what inflation?

#9 Imagine the prices if somebody nukes all the oil transportation hubs in Persian Gulf. A single missile fired at, and missing, a tanker in the Strait of Hormuz would be enough to hike prices by 50%. Closing the strait for a month would likely cause shortages worldwide.

#10 World markets, supply and demand, limited sources, eh? So if there were more oil available from more places it would be cheaper, right?
Or is B-HO suggesting we should kick their asses and steal their oil?
