Ah, can you get it right even once. COUNTRIES set the price of oil, not companies. Ever hear of OPEC? 90% of all petroleum is controlled by countries. The TWELVE larges petroleum companies on this Earth are owned by ..... COUNTRIES!!! And even private companies that are on lands or waters that are controlled by countries are at the whims of those countries. Did not Obama shut down all deep water oil production in the Gulf of Mexico?<quoted text>
Yes, it does as exploration in the US costs much more than in Saudi Arabia or Mexico or Venezuela, to name just three. And, it doesn't really matter anyhow where the stuff comes from. The oil companies set the local price which was rising last week as the barrel was falling. Be sufficiently honest to leave Obama out of this. You really think he fixes gas prices? If so, your case is worse than I thought. Oil people are crooks. Is that new to you?
We all know you hate black things but stop sounding like a broken record!
