    Anyone who says otherwise is a fool. Look at what they are doing right now. Instead of supporting our economy in the US and holding back sales of refined product and keeping prices lower here and lowering imports, they are selling oil on the open market and EXPORTING OUR NATURAL RESOURCES!!

    The Democrats are also protecting the oil companies. there is a lot of Campaign cash for both sides coming from the Oil Companies

    Try looking at how either party votes anytime they attempt to pass a bill to end giving money to oil company's that are making record profits. It is pretty one sided. It is quite obvious which party is to blame. That party starts with an R.

    this is a capitalist society and oil companies have shareholders
    besides oil price increase is based on the commodities market speculation

    Oil prices are not based on market speculation. But it does effect the price of gas, for speculators to get a cut for doing absolutely nothing toward the production of gas.

    I can see from where I am here is that the oil companies are actually making money from the Mexican oil. Mexico does not have the refining capacity for the demand. So America refines Mexico's oil. Not all but a lot. Now knowing that, do you think if we are paying so much and we are getting Oil from Mexico as well as the Middle East. Why are we paying So damn much? If they would let American pay less at the pump, we can allocate that money in our Rent, Mortgage, Hobbies, etc. But It seems to hurt them if we pay low prices. But why? If the prices where low, I would probably make up the difference by driving so Darn much. They are killing the joy of driving by doing that. Maybe that's their goal.

    sorry! seeing if u were on ur toes, mexico does produce about 3 million barrels a day and is the 6th largest in the world

    yes I am on my toes ;-) no harm done. mexico has a huge problem don here with their gas. The government won´t let private investors invest in the oil refining business unless it is owned and operated by the government. So think about that. How about government control? So when yo have it, you can´t even us it!

    That's because Republicans motto, "drill baby drill." is working in their favor. While they drill consumers pocket book, they arre filling up theirs.

    Have you ever thought to yourself that when the Republicans are crying, "Drill Baby Drill," they are telling the big oil companies to drill consumers pocket book. And actually that's exactly what they are doing, drilling people pocket book.

    It is for sure that they aren't protecting American consumers. They don't think that is important enough.
