  • Exxon, Conoco, BP to pay back $800M for project impacts in Alaska [View news story]
    I agree with Scott & djsulli. I never heard of paying a reserve tax on any undeveloped oil and gas ever! Geeeeeeeeeee, what's next, at this rate all the oil and gas companies will soon be out of business or is this what the Adm. in Washington is wanting?

    Mike Sitner,
    I agree. Where is all the money going for all the assets that are being sold off.

  • Refiners running full throttle could lead to a heavier fall maintenance season [View news story]
    A simple question: When has there been new refineries built in the USA? I don't think in a long, long time. These old plants are dangerous at best and more so when regular maintenance is not preformed. And by the way, does anyone know how much taxes are levied on one gallon of gasoline?

  • Is BP Out Of The Woods? [View article]
    Has anyone looked to see the oil stocks have been down for about a week or more, not just BP? And crude was down at the same time, that might have something to do with the oil stocks. You think???

  • Lowe's pulls some flooring off website after SA report [View news story]
    TEX1961, I will second that. I have found a few employee's of Lowes who could care whether they can be of assistance to a customer or not, but I have found that this type of employee are few and far between. Long LOWES.

  • New York state to ban fracking, citing health concerns [View news story]
    I know there are pros and cons to fracking, but if the New Yorkers ban fracking without more scientific data, maybe they do not need the oil and gas that is made available from this method of extraction of our resources from other states. New Yorkers can always fill their needs by buying from countries overseas that want all of America to stay dependent on other countries resources.

  • Judge OKs U.S. lawsuits against BP by foreign investors [View news story]
    Whoever said the Stock Market guaranteed anyone anything. Maybe the stocks goes up and maybe the stocks goes down. That is what buying and selling is all about. I have bought and sold stocks for about 20 years and was never guaranteed any profit on anyone of the stocks I bought. I have had profits and I have had losses, but that is the way the cookie crumbles.

    It does seem the powers that be, are all against BP! Maybe, if and when we get new people elected we will have some unbiased opinions.

  • Judge orders companies to pay $1.1B in lead paint ruling [View news story]
    I agree with Roswell333, why is everything so negative for BP. BP manned up and paid out so much in claims and fraudulent claims, but it seems that is not enough.

  • BP enjoys another court win [View news story]
    I agree with Ludo5312 how in the world do the shareholders expect to gain anything by suing BP now. They could have sold their shares before the bottom dropped out of BP after the blowout. I think by bringing a class action suit now they are just compounding the problem that they are complaining about.

  • Keep Buying Wal-Mart [View article]
    I am a senior citizen who was born during the depression and grew up knowing what it means not having much more that the bare necessities. We never went hungry, but not because of government assistance but because my father and mother worked very hard and stretched their assets as far as possible. By the way, my father only had a 3rd grade education as he grew up on a farm and did not have the opportunity many others had of getting more education. I am the youngest of the 6 children.
    Everyone in the family contributed to the family needs and as we grew up and married no one in the family was ever on welfare.

    I really think Sam Walton who started Wal-Mart probably grew up under similar circumstances and the thought of helping people with lower costs for their products they had for sale was upper most in the companies minds and hearts. I say we should all be thankful for Wal-Mart. I am still and will always be a shopper at Wal-Mart even though I do not have to watch my pennies now. I say "Hurray for Wal-Mart".

  • Nearly 100 oil companies including Exxon (XOM), Conoco (COP) and BP are sued by a Louisiana flood protection group seeking the repair of coastal storm buffers, claiming they degraded storm protections by dredging canals for pipelines and exploring in coastal wetlands. The industry, which has a fund that uses oil royalties to restore damaged areas, says wetlands have been degraded by many factors. [View news story]
    It would be refreshing to hear that these people are trying to make a living by actually working at a job, instead of wanting to sue someone else for money they imagine they should have.

  • BP says active cleanup operations are ending in Mississippi, Alabama and Florida after a three-year effort to repair the Gulf of Mexico shoreline after the 2010 oil spill. BP says it has spent more than $14B and 70M personnel hours on response and cleanup activities, and the Gulf is returning to the condition it would have been in if the accident hadn't happened. [View news story]
    I totally agree with SSGAJ. Seems a lot of people want something for nothing as long as an oil company has to pay. And BP was the largest of the companies involved, so they had to pay the brunt of the fines and cleanup. Halliburton, Transocean and Cameron were also involved, and I am not sure yet which one was more to blame than the other.

  • BP (BP +0.4%) has allocated $2.85B to develop Iraq's Rumaila oilfield in 2013, up from $2.2B last year, with plans to drill new 300 oil wells over the next five years, according to the head of the joint management committee for the field. Boosting output from Iraq's most prolific oilfield is vital for the country to realize its ambition of raising oil exports to 6M bbl/day by 2017. [View news story]
    Just about everyone else has claimed damages. Iraq will probably be the next one to file.
