Those millions in Obama donations by the oil speculators are paying off, thanks to his supporters, they now have 4 more years of no government intervention to gouging the consumer. No hope, & no change !!

Maybe if we built another refinery or 6 we could handle ebbs and flows of natural disasters, broken pipelines and OPEC. More refineries= more sources= more options= more competition= lower prices= recovering economy.
