Sorry for the delay, I haven't been at my computer much lately. My point is about how badly Big Oil gouging us at the pump. We're extracting oil at better rates and for less money that ever before, and are able to use wells that a little as 10 years ago were considered hopeless. You claim that our gas is "cheaper" because of where we get it, but that isn't refelcted at the pump. Big Oil claims our pump prices are based on the price of crude in the "world market", but that doesn't fit the equation either... If we get our crude out of a cheaper source, our prices should reflect this, and it doesn't. My biggest issue is that Big Oil is charging the North American market more per gallon than any other oil EXporting nation in the world (look it up anywhere, CNN, Yahoo..). America is the only place I've seen in the world where diesel is more expensive than petrol even though it requires less refining, and therefore is cheaper to make.
