    Well if you need the oil what are the alternatives?

    I think US gas prices are way below the true cost.

    Call it marginal taxation....

    Oil is only worth something if it's sold. Why is it necessary to invade/occupy a country to obtain the oil? Venezuela doesn't especially like us; neither does Iran or Kuwait or Saudi Arabia for that matter. But they are perfectly willing to sell us the oil.

    Meanwhile, we could lower our dependence signifcantly by exploiting domestic resources - including untapped oil reserves.

    And anyone who drives and Escalade (or its equivalent) or who lives in a humungous McMansion has lost any right to bitch about energy costs anyway!~

    I don't know.

    Seems like a reasonable thing to trade.... but when it's essentially liquid gold under the ground...


    Ask this girl ... she desn't like being photograhed, and quite possibly has an answer...

    Someone needs to invent an engine that is fuelled by gold. It would probably be cheaper...

    Nobody can buy this girl's heart. She's Orkadian deep down, more inclined to stook oats than dance to a Carol King ballad in summer 1992...
    Orkney Islands, Scapa Flow all that stuff.

    Had a bit of a way about her at times.

    What was that about the price of fuel...?
