It is not even noon in Miami. already hurting from weak dollar and declining income, oil will be the the final nail that pushes the world into recession and possible world wide depression. (IMO). Every motorist cringes as the notice the needle is on E. Yet it seems how powerless we are to stop this slow bleeding of our economy. Food prices will next reflect the insanity of current Oil gouging. Who is bidding up the prices? Not one drop of this heinous poison has been spilled no major tanker wrecks have been reported. yet prices have taken on a life comparable to the 50's movie the blob it is consuming and growing yet now outrage? Who is profiting from the demise? How do we get it to a level that the average consumer can afford it? Why is Congress not outraged? This bleeding is endless. media are reporting like lapdogs that VEN. and USA have tension. speculation. Have we attacked Iran? Saudis say there is ample supply. The chimp refuses to do anything about the strategic reserve. No oil platforms have been threatened. summer driving is what they are speculating. NO wait its Iraq. No its India. No its ANWAR. No its bullshit. PLEASE TELL ME IN LAYMAN TERMS WHY THE PRICE OF ENERGY HAS EXPLODED WITH OUT ANY REAL OR PERCEIVED THREAT. NOTHING IS LOOMING THAT WASN'T LOOMING BACK IN 06. I AM BAFFLED. I WOULD APPRECIATE ANY ADVICE ON WHO TO CALL WHERE TO RAISE HELL IN ORDER TO DO MY PART TO STOP THE THIS GALACTIC RISE.
