how about an intelligent conversation on how
we can get the CFTC to change it's rules on
who can purchase crude oil futures contracts?

fix that and you will cause the free market
in crude oil to respond more directly to supp;y
and demand and the price will drop along with the
consumer cost of petroleum distillates.

fact is, demand for distillates here in america
is DOWN as is the demand for crude oil...this
SHOULD result in lower prices, but the price for
CRUDE FUTURES is up dramatically because
deep pocket speculators seeking large profits
have bid up futures, soaking the american public
by causing high fuel prices.

I believe I have tried to start a conversation on this subject a few times and all you end up getting is people making smart remarks and messing everything up.

You are on the right track the commodities market was never meant to trade oil futures but agricultural products and futures.
I believe it was Bush I that opened it up to trade oil futures, I had it in my paper work but I can not find it now, so don't take that as being fact until I find the paper work to back it up.
But ever since then the oil prices have gone up and up and up.
and it has nothing to do with how much oil is being pumped, but what the people on wall street bid and paid for on the futures market.
Have a nice night

i see a lot of people driving around in large pick up trucks and suburbans using them as cars but soon they will thin out.as gas prices go up so does food so people will have to decide if they eat or drive a stupid polluting gas guzzler.fast food restaurants will have to close if people stop coming and more people will walk so it's a way to get in shape.also people on welfare and food stamps for generations will need to find work as taxpayers can no longer afford to give them a free ride and food stamps won't be enough beef will cost 15.00 a pound
