How can anyone still keep trying to tell people that the rising cost of crude today is simply due to supply and demand. That dog just won’t hunt any more, we have more oil today then we did twenty years ago just sitting around. If you want to see the worlds economy continue to tank, just keep that oil sitting and off the market. Fabricated markets, chasing a steadily declining dollar, with phantom profits that will be worthless when what is left of the world’s economy crashes. Even now the refinery industry is currently looking into shutting down even more plants, more cut backs with more jobs being lost. If no one has work, who will buy your product? When they have priced the cost of fuel so high that only the ultra elite can afford it, do you think they will pay what your asking? They will know you can’t sell it to anyone else at that price and they will make you bring it down. It is simply the fact that the industry will price their product out of the market.
