Its more than oil and gas.
Not that you're wrong in most of what you said, but this is not a political forum. This thread is specifically about the price of gas and oil. The oil companies love to confuse the topics of these discussions. Anytime this thread varies from the topic you can count on it being prompted by the oil companies trying to take the heat off themselves. This has nothing to do with republicans, democrats, liberals, conservatives, tea drinkers or even the U.S. or Canada. This is about the oil companies ripping off the world and profiteering at the expense of the citizens of the world. Don't take you eyes off the culprit.
