how can you "nationalize" the price of crude when so much of what we are using does not come from this country? in another 5 years we will be fighting the Chinese for the crude from Venezuala and Iran. to hell with the oil industry, let them do whatever they are going to do and start demanding alternatives and put your money where your mouth is. i have a hard time feeling sorry for those in Cali, especially south Cali, though you guys are probably going to make me money as they are trying to put in a coal power plant bout 100 miles from here in order to sell power to the Californians. produce your own darn power and you wont have brown outs. most of the power from the hydro-electric dam 45 miles from me is going to power the pacific northwest though thats going to go down as the ppl of Montana would rather have the water in the lake instead of letting the Corps sell the power out of state. and since the Corps did such a wonderful job with the levees in Louisiana they have lost alot of their bargining power with this dam.
keep the guberment away from the oil companies i dont trust the feds any more than the suits. even as remoe as i am i would rather see gas stay at $2.50-$3 a gallon than nationalize the oil companies. the government isnt fit enough to do 90% of what they are doing now, i aint keen on turning this over to them either.
