Pretty alarmist, IMO, but possible.

If Big Oil $$$$ weren't a factor, every other car would be fully electric or powered by some other renewable fuel and very little would ve powered by oil based products

Absolutely.
I'm not buying the claim that Iraq started the wars with US. If Kuwait wasn't located where they are, we wouldn't have given two shits that they got invaded.

The thought that the Bush family had little to nothing to do with current price increases doesn't hold very much water to me.

The first sentence is silly. The second is sort of accurate.

If the second sentence is accurate, how is the first one silly?

I may well have missed something, but how does them invading Kuwait, automatically mean that they have started a war with us?

Shock and Awe in Iraq has ultimately created shock and awe at the gas pump.

Is the supply of crude oil coming to a point where it is drying up?

The only reason we defended Kuwait is because they are an ally. Pretty much the only reason they are an ally is because they had/have oil.

There was never a claim of Iraq starting any war with the US.

Exactly.

So, how does that equate to Iraq started the war with the US?

Iraq wanted to eliminate the "oil middle man" and the Bush presidency went to war to stop that.

Clinton pulled out (haha, in more ways/times than one) and when Bush Jr. got into office, he stuck it back in...in the name of Bin Laden/WMD/the poor Iraqui people.

The ironic part of all that is we were a huge part of putting Hussein in power in that region in the first place and there are reports that we gave him the initial recipies to create the very weapons we were trying to take away.

If those events never occurred, can you speculate as to the current price of oil?
