    These oil/gas producers are slowly shooting themseves in the foot. Don't they know that you can have all the ammo in the worldbut it is worthless without the gun toshoot it. Why do they naively keep on selling their share of the delivery system? Sounds like they're a tad in need of some cash--ya think!
