Makes you kinda wonder. "War" would be too disruptive and costly in terms of delivery and availability for the oil companies.
Then they might face nationalization in some countries and price freezing in others.
.....but one or two "conflicts" can be very profitable....
It's always made me wonder in the Arab world.(OPEC)
Who controls whom?
Do the oil companies feed off of the clerics' decisions?
Or do the clerics' feed off of the oil company's contributions?

Yup!
I very close to outfitting this whole house with solar panels after I change the roof! I use about 500 Kw/month max in the summer. Sometimes as little as 75kw/ month in the winter as I am seldom home.
It'll be a large investment with panels, batteries and inverters.
I've looked at two homes and they use 10 times the electricity I use and are still able to sell excess back into the grid.

Our prez and Muslim philosophy(oilfield blackmail) do not suit me!!!
Especially while using the BP dilema to further imports, shutting down tens
of thousands of jobs in the gulf.

I'm sure the process of overcharging us for gasoline is very convoluted and or difficult to understand and say in one sentence, but the bottom line is.....

Somebody out there is not considering the strain that is being put on us average Americans and especially the poor by hiking up gas prices.

They have to realize that they are hurting the people and that they have to choice to or not, yet they still continue to manipulate and abuse. To what ends? What is their real goal? To earn more money and be better off than their neighbor? To keep their businesses strong and powerful so they can't fail even when the economy tanks? To cause as much hate and depression as possible so as to cause a societal breakdown in as short a time as possible?

What ever the reason, they are not acting in co operation with the rest of society. They are a cancer; causing trouble for the greater body. A cancer that even the best MRI will not reveal.

How have they become so malignate and elusive? Somebody is plotting and planning behind our backs!

Don't buy gas where they mix it with ethanol. It messes up your lawn mower chain saw generator and causes your car to get worse milage

Thats correct.
The old percentage was a 5% blend. It's up to 10%, now. It's keeping grain prices ridiculosly high, forcing us to pay more for grain and anything associated with it's consunsumption.
It's really an engine killer in two-stroke outboards!

Unfortunately, almost every pump is blended now. Two pumps in this area supply non ethenol fuel. Both are located on the lake.
It's regular(87 octane) unleaded price is 20cents/gal higher than blended unleaded!
Kinda steep but so is the price of a new outboard.

There is a station on S. State that sells non-ethanol gas...by Robies, can't remember the name right now.

ethanol=moisture=condensation= corrosion=gunky-shit.

I think the biggest of many problems with ethanol is it promotes condensation in the gas tank...keeping the tank full will help with this problem as it leaves less room on the inside walls of the tank to form condensation. A good stabilizer like SeaFoam, etc. is a must for any engine not used every week or so.
The boaters are seeing this because the boats sit for long periods of time. And now in the 2 strokes due to the new DFI technologies (direct fuel injection). Its an easy fix for a carburated motor, drop the float bowl and clean the jet...but with DFI/EFI...a whole new ball game. Hence, a 2 stroke outboard killer, as Woody said.

I'm not an expert on boats, but I have some motorcycles, all four stroke, and I don't see nearly the problem with them, fuel injected or carburated.
I have 3 2-stroke engines right now, and none of them run right, including the dinosaur of a boat motor. It's days are numbered...down to about one :)

Also the mix may go to 15%. I think the only reason it hasn't yet is ethanol production is down because of [insert reason here].

I believe the ethanol mix may be higher already because the only thing I've every really learned is...Lying = Profit.

ADM my friend, they are the biggest scam artists around. ethanol costs more energy to produce than it is worth, so big business pays the pols to subsidize them and make laws requiring the use of a product that is harmful to the engines you use it in. ethanol on its on with no subsidies and artificially high prices would be another idea on the trash heap of bad ideas to replace fossil fuel. brazil uses ethanol but from a different process than ADM.

In my opinion, Cargill is the largest exploiter of the American public, along with adm.
Cargill's hold on politics is tremendous.
There is not hardly one meat item, frozen or not that is not cargill branded.
Check that frozen Banqet dinner and thousands of other items you use everyday. Become a label reader.
Mosanto is by far the largest manufacturer of pestecides and herbicides and the largest promoter of their use.
What worries me the most is their prolific use of genetic engineering and the ever increasing number of patents they hold on those.
But that's a whole nother story in monsanto's case.

I've done plenty work in Valero's plants. Prolly 75%. They have been smart enough to realize adm and cargill's business savvy. They have built a huge bio-diesel facility at their Louisiana plant in norco and have invested heavily in ethenol production.
If I'm correct and may very well be wrong, I think most of Brazils ethenol production come from sugarcane.

Here's a short link I found to reinforce your previous one. If it'll go through.

Glad to see you guys are taking this topic to a new level. I heard a few rumors about that ethanol laced gas not being so good, but didn't want to give it much thought because I don't like to think about more depressing things. I have enough of that in my life outlook as it is. But, I guess there's room for a little more depressing sh!t in there somewhere.

One place that advertises "No Ethanol" is in Nunez between Abbeville and Kaplan right off hwy 14. But, it has recently been taken over by the Arabic persuasion like all the rest of the gas stations for some reason lately. Those camel jockeys are buying up cigarette/gas stops like candy. It's no longer just 7eleven stores. LOLing just to keep from crying.

Here is a link for non-ethanol gas that you can use wherever you travel. It is user-submitted info, so it changes all the time.

Well, FED...we expect you to be in better spirits for the city's new upcoming "Corn and Petroleum Festival"!
