Global Oil prices are down slightly from their lofty levels after skyrocketing on concerns over gasoline supplies in the US, strong demand over China's booming economy, and concerns about security of oil facilties after the Madrid bombings on March 11, as well as Israel's assasination of the Hamas leader.

Translation to you guys: There are other factors besides OPEC.

Oil on the world market is traded in US dollars. A weak dollar causes prices in dollars to go up.

I say drill everything we've got and start using it up. In the meantime break the banks of the middle eastern whacko's and other OPEC morons. We must do this before petroleum becomes obsolete and we switch to an alternate source in just a couple of decades...

Either way, if you can't afford to operate it, you can't afford to own it in the first place...Look how cheap those Bayliners operate with thier 4.3's....
