Pretty alarmist, IMO, but possible.

I'd like to see the Govt go into the Refinery business soon.


Buy American.
Fill up with Ethynol or BioD.


Now, the arsehole petroleum companies are trying to get in on the monies for renewable fuels, by refining a small amount of animal fat....which will take huge sums of money intended for the Biofuel industry......which creates alot of good rural jobs, as well as the other obvious products.

I don't see that happening until the oil business gets out the government, which won't happen any time soon.

Actually your site just verifies everything I have typed already...

Those charts show demand was down last year and early this year, and they kept on raising the prices and cutting supply... It's JUST NOW starting to go back up in April as should the price for supply and demand since summer is coming...

But they created a false demand earlier in the year buy cutting supply to keep the prices higher...

It is what I typed earlier before you got off on your supply and demand tangent...

Demand varies by season. People drive more in the spring and summer months. Therefore, demand increases during those months.

You said, "DEMAND was down last year and early this year." If you are referring to seasonal demand changes, yes, demand was down last winter and early this year as compared to last summer. But that happens every year. If you look at the demand curves on the last graphic in that link, however, you'll see that overall demand is in fact up when compared to previous years.

We could produce a lot more oil if the Government would let us.

Don't worry, the Chinese will be along soon to drill off our coasts.

I honestly don't know enough about the theory to believe or not believe it.

But we cut production to start to drive the demand back up so we did not lose any money... And we are going to tell you now that their is more demand for it, even though every day more and more people are buying more fuel efficient vehicles...
BTW, VLO recovered all of that market cap.
