More oil greed

As if the prices and profits aren't high enough already, BP is taking 8 percent of the US supply offline, using the "pipeline corrosion" as an excuse.

This is NOT a free market. This is a cartel, plain and simple, given that a small number of oil companies can swap their inventories and set prices together. And the entire nation is held captive, especially with oil-friendly politicians in power.

I cannot stress it enough. Throw out all oil-friendly politicians, and replace them with ones who will take initiative to look at energy conservation and alternative sources. Big Oil is killing the world, financially and physically.
