Yup that war all about oil really sucks, huh? Where is my 10 cent gas?
So why did we attack the middle east???
They only adjust the gas prices once a month over here....I just can't wait for the 1st of May.
Regular Unleaded is about 1,30 euro a liter off post
As if you needed another reason to stay off the roads!
Drill in Alaska and build some new refineries.
Oil CEO's give it to you in the ass while environmentalists rape your wallet, damn them both!
Why won't they build more refineries? Also, how is drilling in Alaska going to help?
I believe the oil companies don't want to spend the money to build them and when they do you have some environmental group line the pockets of some politician to block it.
Alaska oil would not be part of Opec, maybe it wouldn't help immediately, but at least it would not be middle east oil.
Oh...the environmentalists are in the pols pockets? Who, specifically?
And, how long do you think our Alaskan oil reserves will last us, assuming we don't ship it to Asia?
I understand global demand for gas , my question is, when the iraq war is finished and they increase oil production, how much of an effect will it lower prices at the pumps.....
no, no...the Iraq war has nothing to do with oil production.
That's $6.12 for a gallon
1,30 euro is 1.62 dollars
3.78 liters is a gallon
And that's 87 octane some places its 86.8
I don't know and neither do you, so we should just say **** it lets get some more oil from opec?
Just an honest question, What difference in prices at the pump do you forcast when the war is over and stability returns to the region...0ne dollar two dollar, or the price will stay the same at the current 3 per gal.
The uncertainty has an impact but the huge increase in worldwide demand is the bigger issue.
The best estimates are around 9 months at current consumption rates. However, it has been thoroughly acknowledged that most of north slope crude would go to Asia. Here, clue in. http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/localnews/2002245699_export17m.html
And whats that about Markey? Im curious.
The article you provided shows Markey opposing ANWR drilling. That is what you provide me as proof that environmentalists are in the pols pockets?
WTF? You are aware that Markey opposed that anwr drilling rider because they put it on a defense appropriations bill. Is that the bill they are talking about in your article? Its unclear. In essence, if you don't support drilling then we are going to force you to sign onto it using a defense bill, which was a sleazy GOP tool to get the needed votes to open anwr to drilling even though its production potential is limited.
another example of how un-conservative the "conservatives" are. How about promoting "conservation"? Its not part of Bushs vocabulary.
Was listening to an interview on NPR the other day about alternative energies, some entrepeneur has developed a way to make gas out of coal that would cost $3.00 per million BTU as opposed to gas which is now $7.00 per BTU ( not sure about the BTU stuff) but anyways long way from ongoing production but shows promise,
Here is a synopsis of the article, seems like a better alternative than doing the North Slope thing..
So you think it is Ok for a Democrat to pimp his vote out for donations, Ok I see now you are such a party lackey , as soon as a Republican does it you stand 20 freaking threads about the same thing.
I guess it is my liberal side coming out in me that I care more about people than a god damned tree.
It's pimping out for donations because he didn't vote for this amendment to an unrelated bill?
