This is the man in charge of our nation, saying that an increase in supply won't have an effect on the price of gas?
All this talk about increased gas prices is complete nonsense.
Gas costs 16 cents.
A silver dime is worth about $2.50 today, and if we just stuck with silver and gold as our currency, gas would actually be about 3 times cheaper than it was in 2006.
Watch from 1:55
The mission is to force the embrace of alternative concepts by making it too expensive to afford what is there and workable. Government Motors just shut down the assembly line for the Volt for at least five weeks to draw down dealer inventories....folks looking for an "economical car" are apparently not in the market for a $40,000 one even when it has $8000 in government rebates attached to it. This is what happens when we force the point rather than allowing products to find their own level in the market.
He really means won't. Clearly, because of his ideology he wants to force Americans to use alternate means of energy no matter how expensive and inefficient it currently is.
What's the problem with allowing oil production in the US...
working on alternative energy sources?
Can we not multitask in this nation?
It's because liberals think it has to be a crisis to get what they want done.
Gas has to be a crisis or no alternatives will be developed.
When the truth is, it only hurts the average American.
It all depends on how much supply is entering the market. If, percentage wise, it isn't much than there won't be much of a difference at the pumps. If there is a large percentage entering the market then you might see something. Could we end up at $2.50 like Gingrich proposes; probably not. However, even if we were to bring prices down, is it worth the destruction it might cause later on? Global Warming is more and more noticable and might cost us more money in the future if we aren't willing to pay for higher gas prices now.
Interestingly enough, I just put up a post about global warming.
That being said, we have enough oil in the US that we could impact our gas prices quite a bit, and the more we get off gas, the more we could export oil, which would be a great help to our economy.
Gas prices are high due to the speculators on Wall Street.
And BiBi's insanity.
We do not have to destroy our natural environment for fuel....Tesla had the formula for free energy...they still have it.
The crooks are hiding it to ensure higher prices...just like they pay farmers not to grow, and have warehouses full of food they don't relase to keep the prices up.
We are going to have to be hit with a sledge-hammer before we change.
There is plenty enough of everything to go around....geeee, I wonder who wants to keep it the way it is now?
It always ends up being blamed on some semi-anonymous group. I can guarantee that it has nothing to do with speculators on Wall Street. Every investor could short oil with every dollar they have, and they would lose it all. They're not the ones making the changes, they are just riding the waves.
Really? Come on. There is no such thing as free energy.
I agree with the food crap. We need to get Mansanto out of our food industry, and the government to reduce their control.
But as far as oil, it's not hurting anyone. Our governments are lying about global warming, and you can actually pull charts from NASA from different years that show they have been changing historic temperatures to make it look like we are getting hotter than we are.
PLENTY of experts disagree with you. And it ALWAYS comes down to wall street....all of it.
"He who controls the wealth of a nation, controls that nation"
Yes..there is free energy...the military has gobs of techno stuff they don't release...remember what they say: anything we see in the world of technology...the military is 50 yrs ahead.
And I believe global warming is real...this planet has been decimated by industry.
Oil is an international currency, traded on international markets. China, for instance, has $3 trillion in forex holdings, and a $300 billion forex 'bully' fund. They could counteract all of Wall Street by themselves.
Every central bank has a tremendous amount of money that they use to protect their interests, in currency, metals, and oil.
It's not Wall Street, it's an international game.
You're saying that everything we know of physics is wrong. Do you have any proof?
As far as the military being ahead, who knows. But, we have no reason to say that all of science is wrong.
Did you look at my post on it? Did you look at how NASA has manipulated the data?
In 2000, they were saying that we were still in a cooling trend. Now, they say 2000 was a record-setting warming trend.
They are Just Like Mitt Romney, Always changing their minds.
Whatever Crap the People are causing should not question how Great the United States of America is. It is the Greatest!!!!!!!
The United States Military believes global warming is real, and a threat to our security. They are acting accordingly.
Money rules the world, has no conscience for pain and suffering.
Our lusting after it and to-the-death-battle to hold on is the root of all the worlds troubles.
Let go of the greed......we don't have a problem!

My husband and I had a debate about global warming. He thinks we should spew out sulphur dioxide to cool the earth (as in the case of pinatubo) He claims a source said that in 6 months the problem will be over.But acid rain is caused by sulphur dioxide and it will poison our potable waters. I say...

Are you concerned about global warming or do you feel it is more hype than fact?There is a lot of information available about global warming, almost as though there is too much information available. Does the "global warming" issue feel more like a marketing ploy or scientific fact?...

Gas prices are soaring as usual under Republican leadership. This will hurt middle and lower classes more than it does those who got the lions' share of the tax cuts. Not only do we have to repay the Chinese for the money we borrowed , we now have to pay higher prices for fuel. I hope those wanted...
