Re: Why is it so ?
In Brazil we pay US$ 3 a gallon. And we are self sufficient in oil.
As I told before, the only reason that we didn`t have a revolution here is that food is cheap.
One dollar a kilo (2,2 pounds ) of anything vegetable and two dollars good beef. Poultry is US$ 1 a kilo.
That`s the main problem in the US: not oil, but food, which is totally dominated by half a dozen companies.
My wife just came back from the US: 3 days there and her face was full of pimples and she was sick. That`s because of the awful hormones they put in the meat and the milk.
