Oil

so when the Dems take control, now that the elections are over, how many think the price of oil, and gasoline will go down, since most of you were blaming republicans for the prices?

I think it's a silly question. There's little the Dems could influence aside from attempting to rid the oil companies of tax incentives.

You guys need a creative outlet to vent. Perhaps you could scrounge up a credible Republican who actually has some ideas?

I tend to think oil prices are going to keep going back up. This administration is oil company friendly, and they know it.

Isn't it interesting that we saw such a large drop in prices just in time for the november election. And now that the election is over and the republicans lost, they are creeping back up at a time when historically they go down.

And ya its supply and demand, but the gasoline supply is manipulated by the oil companies. With the supply up & the price started to drop, it became time to take some refineries out of operation for maintenance and to switch others to refining heating oil so that the supply drops and the inflated prices can go back up.

This industry needs some major oversight, maybe even more than oversight.

Hillary's credible and McCain isn't? Just because Hilary has ideas doesn't make them good ideas.

I guess the question should have been, now that the dems will have control, will they pass some legislation to stop the raping of america?? Will they have the balls, or will we finally prove they are just as bad...

Aside from a national gas tax which would never pass there's really nothing they can do!

I cant believe anyone

picked anything but the last choice. It isn't either party that has influence over the price of gas. Unless of course they nationalize the companies, but that would only work for all the oil and gas actually mined in this country.
The middlemen/women who sit in the futures offices bid the price up and down all day/week/year long are the people everyone needs to look at. If Iran burps nuclear in the morning, in the mideast, by afternoon, a price change, higher, is in effect, because of the ayatollahs gas (yes this is a cheap play on words) problem. If Iran makes nice and Chavez in Venezuela are in good modds then there is no price change.
I agree with Spence about the context of the question. To me there is little difference between dems and repubs. The dems want to do everything for you and the repubs want you to do everything for yourself. The dems want total control of all funds, giving different projects seperate checks. The repubs like giving money in blocks (block grants) to groups or municipalities and let those persons dole out the money. Dems and Repubs all want a safer, more affluent society with equal/better education for all. They just differ on how to arrive at that point.
