Do you believe everything you read on the Internet? We have our own oil, lots of it. If our Government wanted to change things all we need to do is start building more refineries.scannerfreak said:

You got it, oil profits are up from what I heard on the radio today, BP, Shell, Petro canada. Lemme add a link.GreatLakes said:Because our Government seems to like things just the way they are. We do not have to rely on foreign oil.
Yes most are up ~30% over last year, one company is up as much as ~60% over last year.EJB said:You got it, oil profits are up from what I heard on the radio today, BP, Shell, Petro canada. Lemme add a link.
More fuel for the fire that our governments dont give a sh*t about you as long as their is profits to be made.
A lot of us are gonna have to realize that the free-market being what it is most of us will not be able to afford to drive.

As for people not driving - lol.
If you have to go somewhere you are going to go no matter what it cost. Right now I would guess some people arent doing much better than breaking even - commuting back and forth to a low wage job to support their families the best they can. Do they just quit driving to work and let their families starve or do they pay the $5-10 a gallon gas and try to make things work? Sure some might just say screw it, I say the majority are going to continue to payup.
The government has stepped in to fix prices the market before - they need to set cap price of $60 a barrel - a $600 check isn't going to stimulate anyone!
