Since American demand has, and is, decreasing...and we cannot affect foreign demand, which is increasing rapidly, then only one option is open to effect price.

70 dollar a barrel two years ago, though, is paid for at the same rate as 90 dollars a barrel is today...because the money is worth less.

The very NOTION of profanity is the effort of a feeble brain to force it's limitations upon others. A word CANNOT be profane if it's definition coincides with that of another word that is NOT seen as profane by the feeble minded, and ALL profane words have that non-profane synonym.

Pipelines are statistically far safer than freighters, rail cars and tanker trucks.
