Default Crude oil drops below $100 bucks...

Crude oil dropped below $100 bucks a barrel yesterday. Yet the oil companies refuse to drop their prices at the pump. The reason this time was Obama. He wants to pass even more taxes on every gallon of fuel. According to several news networks and some research I did, if he passes the next fuel tax bill, gasoline and diesel fuel prices will be well over $7.00 bucks a gallon by memorial day weekend. Congress is attemping to veto this bill during their next session sometime next week, but between you, me and the fence post, congress won't do a damn thing. We need to get Obama's sorry ass out of there. The republicans are dragging their feet on who's saying who is running for office, and the democrats are pretty much screwed this coming election. The republicans need to hurry up if they don't want to miss the primarys coming this august. These primarys determine who gets the nomination for their party. Then we go through an entire year of complete bullshit. I'd rather make my own fuel to be honest.

In case you have been travelling outside this solar system the congress is controlled by republicans and this won't pass. You get hysterical over nothing quite a bit.

True, republicans now have the majority. The democratic super majority is now gone. If gas hit $7.00 a gallon, the economy would go to crap, more, because the price of services, shipping, anything that requries something to run on fuel would cost more. Pretty soon no one could afford to do anything.. I dont think they are going to let things get that out of hand. The shit your reading, like most all media, is generally intended to create hype and evoke a response or action.

Obama and a lot of other dems and repubs are pushing greener / electric / alternative Fuelo as we all know . They are sending mixed messages to the energy sector . Last I heard was that He was supposed to create a task force to investigate the price of gas , but it never got off the ground . And if anyone is reviewing , the common answer will prevail . Market / Supply / commodities trading etc issues will be the answer . This now is the answer that is being sent around that the less demand the higher price . Another bull excuse . Heard it on CNBC last nite .

My boss was telling me that obama wants to invest in Brazil's oil industry so we can one day buy it from them, and not the mid east. Now, thats just what I heard.

That's right, you already have. From what I understand USA taxpayers gave Brazil government-owned oil industry $billions to explore offshore like the Gulf. I think some Obama/US govt backers already invested in the business and can now benefit.

As far as I'm concerned, we are getting so gouged and lied to. Simple. Stay informed folks.
