    I think $5/gal is what all trolls should pay.

    Baloney! The world price of oil is set by factors far larger than Obama. The far greater devaluation of the American dollar happened before Obama from decades of deficit spending and Bush’s idiot economy destroying policies. In fact the dollar has strengthened lately, which is why gold has recently declined.

    You got your facts all screwed up again as usual. The devaluation of the dollar started in the 1970’s and proceeded at a rapid rate, with many ups and downs, until Obama came into office. It has since improved slightly.

    You have to feel sorry for the oil companies: it’s such a delicate balance. If you charge too little, your profits can decline into the millions per quarter rather than billions. If you charge too much, the peasants will scream for a development of alternative energy, and someone else might get your business. No wonder the executives of those companies are so well-compensated: it’s high pressure and high stakes.

    I think only the socialists should be $10000 per gallon. Just to make things fair because the socialists are always stealing everything from the provider class to pay for the recipient class.

    The price of oil is controlled by big fat socialist government policies. Starting with Obama, Clinton, and Carter limiting where oil companies are allowed to drill. Drill off Florida? Not allowed. Unless you are the Chinese or some other “oppressed” country cutting a deal with Fidel. Then there are the coal fired power plants being shut down by government regulations. New York City has brownouts. Good for them as they voted for Dope And Drag and are getting what they deserve. Something has to replace coal. That would be oil. More demand for oil drives up the price. Then there is the policy of no pipelines. Meanwhile the eco-terrorists are all happy because one of those oil trains was tampered with, rolled down a hill, and took out a good part of Lac Megantic, QC. Odds are the eco-terrorist socialists most likely tampered with the train. Brakes on a parked train just don’t release themselves. Somebody had to turn some wheels to release them.
    .
    Of course, as always, the mentally deficient socialists are unable to comprehend any of this.

    As to Socialists, I have already proposed that social Security, public roads, fire and police departments and armed forces be done away with. Those Socialist programs are killing us.

    While the futures market, and the airline industry losing their stranglehold on a large portion of it that kept their costs of jet fuel down, did, and does, have some influence. The simple fact is that world-wide, the ’toon is absolutely correct. It IS the folks at “big oil” that determine petroleum prices on a daily basis. It IS a “corporate monopoly” controlled by an international cartel, primarily run by U.S. “registered” corporations.

    In fact, oil and oil products are our largest export.
