I smell a lawsuit coming, as she wouldn't revel her injuries and can't sleep at night. She was probably making 40 - 50 bucks an hour on that rig, we should be suing her for the cost of our gas going up.

What a coincidence that this thing goes up in flames right after off shore drilling is approved all along the Eastern seaboard and Alaska. Insurance settlements and new development anyone?

This will not have much effect on gas prices.

it is an isolated incident of one company, the economics of a price increase are dependent of the supply and demand of the industry as a total. One co. cannot increase their prices independently esp. since this product is not differentiated between suppliers. ie. if you can buy the same thing somewhere else at a lower cost why wouldn't you? OPEC will not move prices b/c one co. is having trouble covering the costs of cleaning up an unproven well, They will only move prices based on demand and the ability to maximize their revenues over total industry operating expenses.

Good old Haliburton. Wish they'd reveal their fracking fluid recipe.

One month later and oil prices are down! having had little effect from the spill.

Whoever said I was nuts, or wrong, or lights out...Hope you didn't put money on that bet!

Even with the prices going down, I think the citizens of the US should boycott and quit buying BP GAS until they get this oil spill stopped and cleaned up.
