    Funny price per barrel is now at close to an all time high at about $75 a barrel not seen since about 4 years ago, so where is the Republicans at saying that the oil speculators are causing public panic and hardship? *crickets this is what I hate most about the Republicans as they really do allow scum like them to get away with stuff.

    All time high of $75? Where were you in 2008 when it was at $140 a barrel? Living under a rock?

    It sure did suck driving a car that took premium during those days.

    It did and the 60 mile commute each day.
    That's not "All time high". Liberal math fail.

    To be fair, I had to read your post several times, and I'm still not 100% sure what you were trying to say.

    The Republicans are waiting for the oil market to respond to output and demand.

    The funny thing that you seem to omit is when dems are in charge repubs blame them and when the repubs are in charge the dems play the blame game.

    But since dems have been kicked to the curb, all we hear about is from the dems since the majority of the press are the propaganda machine for leftist ideology.

    Easy way to get speculators out of the market, require them to be capable of taking physical possession of the contracted commodity.

    Interesting. I don't have the time to research (truth is I'm lazy), what's the cost per barrel for extraction in the middle East?

    I remember well since I'd hit $100 and it'd stop.
    I'd have to put up the handle, run my card again and add another $15-20 of gas to finish filling up my Lightning.

    Good question. Refining the oil is an added cost as well. I remember reading years ago when oil was on the cheap side that extractors said it wasn't worth drilling due to no profit. I'll guess anything below 20 or so bucks a barrel makes it a waste of time/money.

    That's not how English works. That's not how any of this works.

    If you want to shit on a group of people, deserving or not, you need to word your soap box well and make sure you don't come off looking like a moron. Unfortunately for you, that's what's happened. You can't say "All time high not seen since about 4 years ago". You qualified $75 as "all time high" and hearkened back to 4 years ago as a similar point in time. Which is false.

    Yea, try doubling that and we can talk about an "all time high".

    Everyone one on the opposing side of the aisle wants open boarders but sure as hell won't offer their home to them. Everyone wants to bitch about prices on goods or oil or whatever, but sure as hell won't stop using it in "opposition". You bitch just to bitch because you have nothing worth a damn to say otherwise.

    /soap box.

    And they are right back to drill baby drilling in the Balkan. Oil is a commodity, the price will rise and fall.
