We complain but we do nothing about it. What most people don't understand is the oil companies are a for-profit-company. Which means if you don't want the product--don't buy it.........No different then Sears, Publixs or Winn-Dixie stores.

Profit is a beautiful thing! Creates chances to share and help others or just yourself if that's who you are.

Just profit from "wants", be careful of the "needs".
example: HEALTHCARE, BASIC FOOD, Transportation...

Sounds reasonable to me.

PS: GW, Didn't get the invite... Glad the wedding for your daughter was nice... God Bless their future! Hope he blesses yours also.

If we could harness only 10% of the hot air that U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer produces, we would be energy independent.

Bush is an idiot but if you think it's going to change when Obama gets in office you are a fool. He is supported by George Soros, one of Halliburton's biggest shareholders. No oil connection there, huh?

Early 2010?
It will probably be that by the end of the year and WHEN Iran gets bombed it will go to 8 or 10 if you can get it at all.
The forecast is gloomy to say the least, don't ya think?
Or when Obama bombs Pakistan or raises taxes on oil companies (where do you think oil companies will pass it on - the consumer). If you really think a politician cares and can opr will do anything about it you are still a child.

Here, we don't really have a choice. There is nothing else available that will power my vehicle and get me to work.
