" Oil rises to near $73.00 a barrel as stocks, euro gain- AP ", but this is still down from April of this year when oil was at $86.20 a barrel and gas went to $2.85 a gallon, SO I ask you, WHY is the price of gas still holding around the $2.85 ($2.79) figure when it should be at $2.00 a gallon. Oil is down $13.20 a barrel but the price of gas hasn't followed this decline, as usual, especially in Amherst, price fix?

This should be sufficient proof that we do not, presently, possess the technology to cap deep-under water wells in a sufficient time frame to protect our environment. Yet they refuse to shut down the other off shore sites until such technology is obtained.

Furthermore, this also proves that the "think green" philosophy is largely a myth based on fear and job creation. If they were truly concerned about the environment, this would be a top priority with only the greatest minds working the problem.

i just wanted to thank you for getting factual info and raising this question. I was beginning to feel I was the only one seeing this. It makes no sense to me that we are paying so much for gas at the pump. I didn't know the exact figures but I knew we were paying less for the barrel. I definitely feel a gouging going on!

Oh that's easy ... the reason the price isn't $2 is because the elite are devaluing the dollar ... you think that's bad ... wait until next year at this time ... the dollar will be devalued 30 - 50%... cruel oil prices will be the indicator for the collapse of the dollar.

This should be a wake up call for B P .......why didn't they try this a long time ago and it would have prevented such a huge loss of oil, not to mention jobs on the mainland.

TOO LITTLE HELP TOO LATE.

This is the best case scenario for the BP CEO.

The guy has all of the $$$ he will ever need and now he doesn't have the stress of having to clean up his mess to deal with...

hey ya'all....
how many of you are going down there to help??? you can't complain that something is not getting done correctly unless you are actually doing it or overseeing it yourself. It is a whole different world 5000 feet underwater (the preassure increases one atmosphere for ever 33 feet down) the preassure at sea level is about 14 pound per square inch. That means that 5000 feet down, it is 2121.21 psi. That is seriously a lot of pressure. All the engineering that has to go into making something that works at that preassure takes A LOT of time..........

and by the way, Europe and basically the rest of the world have been paying upwards of 2-3 times the price per gallon we are now for years.....

Really, a former FEMA head? They are doomed on the gulf coast for sure now - New Orleans is still a mess after Katrina.
