Gasoline Futures market going berserk

At one point they hit $3 a gallon wholesale for delivery in Sept/Oct. That means Euro-style pump prices are coming to America. Time to sell your gas hog is now.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

Speculation has entered the market, the kind seen in the Internet days. You fellows may not know this, but a one dollar a barrell jump usually takes months to happen, and now we are seeing it daily. No telling what is going to happen.

RE: Gasoline Futures market going berserk

The big pro and con arguments on Saddam among the oil moguls was that if he was gone we would be able to get the oil flowing again, vs he was the only guy who could keep this fictional country together so whatever oil we were going to get out of the place could flow. I always agreed with the position that the smart thing to do was to put a bullet in his and his son's heads and otherwise leave Iraq alone, because the heir-apparent, Tariq Azziz, was nowhere near as radical as Saddam and his rule could have possibly led to the end of sanctions. The central rule of the Middle East, which has held since 1915 and has been proven again with our impending loss in Iraq, is that until the question of Arab nationalism is settled by some type of pan-Arab election, the problems are insolvable and the best policy is to stay the hell out.

I agree. Goddamn conservatives wanted power, now they've got it. Bring back the covert CIA hit-squads while you've got the chance. Who would have bitched about Saddam and his sons simultaneously "slipping on a bar of soap"?

Because Bush Co. has told the lies long enough to get themselves advanced in politics that they believe their own rhetoric. I am sure they believed the country was stupid enough to support this war without question. That they could slip this one under the people's noses just like all the things before. They are too smart by half. They have lost view of reality. They have lost justification. They are going.

Retail prices up another nickel. $2.55 a gallon for regular fresh from the plant at the cheap places.

RE: Gasoline Futures market going berserk

probaly iraq is another lebanon now.. 40 years of civil war ahead!! during the war every one will poke their oar into the war.. we can expect syria to cross to border and walk in as a peace keeper. jordan as a heaven for refuge seekers, israel bombing the borders to scare away the hezbollah millitants, saudi arabia sending $$$ and aid, and pakistani's taking the full advantage start exporting scrap metal out of iraq..[:p]

Fuel economy!! whats that??

RE: Gasoline Futures market going berserk

I think you will see Kurdistan declare independence, which will touch off a general war in the area, drawing in Turkey and Iran. The Arabs are due for a major civil war to settle the question of Arab independence and unification, the thing we are trying to prevent via jackboot and Hitlerite invasion, and this will start as well, as nothing more than a continuation of the insurgency we touched off in Iraq. They will have lots of new weapons supplied by us to a collapsed Iraqi "government" and lots of well trained fighters who will take the Baathist battle to Saudi Arabia and Jordan. Once we are out of there, the lid comes off the kettle. The stupid fucks who have cheered on this war will then find out that we were better off with Saddam in power, wrapped up like a sardine in a can. Instead we are creating a Middle East of well-armed Baathist nationalists mixed in with Al-Queda suicide freaks right in the middle of the Saudi oil fields. We have done nothing to remove the pigs who run these so-called "friendly" countries, rapists and theives who are the source of the misery among the Arab people. Bush has created the greatest threat to our national security since the Russians built an A Bomb.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
