Re: I got a real conspiracy for all of you...
The problem with oil is that it acts almost like a monopoly, not because of any collusion among oil companies, but because of the behavior of the American consumer. Americans will drive their cars no matter what, and that gives the suppliers ultimate control of the price. You cant really blame them for taking the price the consumer is willing to pay.
If you are not part of the solution, you are part of the precipitate.
