Within the last 30 days there have been attacks on oil pipe lines in Russia, Nigeria, Yemen & now in Egypt.

The USA is now in worst shape to cope with a doubling of crude oil prices. We have shut down off shore, Alaska, west Texas oilfields & idled all but two major refineries in the USA. We are setting ourselves up for total dependance on OPEC.

History hasn't taught us a thing. How quickly we forget the 1973 Arab Oil Embargo.
