What do people expect out of a Middle Eastern country that we have had trouble with for decades. They want to s$&*w as much money as they possible can out of the West and don't give a damn about other countries economies or peoples. The price of gas is forcing people to make decisions on whether or not to eat that week or be able to put gas in their vehicle to get to and from work.

I think oil prices are too high to begin with. But with this Iran issue going on, oil prices are going through a bubble up, until England and France finalize a new source of oil for themselves. Then prices will come back down to "normal".

Looks like Iran has the oil market on a leash. Either that, or the oil market is using 'tensions' as an excuse to increase prices.

Get Natural Gas on line for more automobiles and use it to replace home heating oil, get obama to support it. Step down on big oil for exporting the fuels and causing a shortage so that they can raise the prices and gouge us even more. Pass laws to control the speculators. Get rid of Ethanol as it has less efficiency than regular gas and therefore we use more of it.

Oil prices would drop at least $10 to $20 a barrel in just a few days if we announced we were going to build the Keystone XL pipeline.
Obama had screwed us again and again over energy policy actions.
And now we will get a taste of the future of energy costs under the Obama administration.
