    all the Oil CEO’s did admitted to Congress last month that

    -It cost $10 to make a barrel of Oil but trade on Wall Street for $130 a barrel

    -Oil refineries are only operating at a 60-80% capacity because demands are low and supplies are high

    The problem is at Wall Street

    Fix it there

    considering that neither link opened for me, I would have to guess that what ever is being reported is misleading information by the politicians to safe their jobs.

    Here is another one that the government doesn’t want you to know about… These taxes are eventually paid for by YOU when you fill up your gas tank!

    No, you’re right it doesn’t have ANYTHING to do with OPEC or anyone overseas. It’s the oil companies here in the US that are driving prices to an alltime high. Did you know that gas prices are reaching record-breaking prices just as the oil companies are making RECORD-BREAKING PROFTS?! And it’s not like Bush or our government are going to do anything about it–they’re in the oil companies pockets! They’re all oil men! We need to stop our dependence on fossil fuels and start looking towars electric vehicles because at this point, we’re not going to last much longer.
