The EXCUSE for the jump in oil prices due to the pipeline is completely BOGUS. Hey OBOZO, when are you planning to regulate these speculators, you BIG PHONY LIAR IN CHIEF????

It's up and it's down. Mostly up. If you thought copper stealing was bad before it is probably going to get worse now.

I've always have been told. More oil means cheaper prices. HMMM, seems the gop and the oil company's have been lying. ò¿ó

Let's see….an oil pipeline is coming back online. That means more oil available. So the price goes up on that news? Usually more supply leads to a glut and prices go down. So…is there any reason to believe anything other than oil prices are a result of manipulation by the hedge fund managers and speculators?
