It's a good time, isn't it? I live about 2 miles straight west of the theater.

I wonder who we can blame since Bush isn't in office coming from an oil family???

Seriously, with so many people on a really tight budget right now....higher fuel prices is a tough reality. It's one thing when high prices keeps you from some joy driving....it's another thing when it can really curb some people's capacity to hunt for a job or take away from a limited food budget.

Now you have to find us all free annual meals so we can spend the savings on gasoline/diesel.

Oil speculators are to blame. However, people who were prepared for it and made sensible decisions could care less about it.

When we were the only country that loved gas guzzlers we couldn't understand everyone criticizing us. Now the 1 billion Chinese are starting to drive SUVs and full sized cars around and we are made because they are driving "our" oil prices up?

Oil doesn't belong to any one country, it belongs to the person who owns the land its on and they have a right to sell it to the highest bidder
