The price fixing of oil is nothing but a joke. If speculators were required to take delivery of they oil they trade the price would be around $30 and we'd be paying less than a dollar at the pump.

I just shake my head when I see a big macho 4WD pickup pulling a trailer full of snowmobiles up the highway to the mountains at 75 mph...figuring the driver is just pissin' and moanin' about the price of gas all the way.
