    nope. just seeing if i can get under your skin by repeating your own words. seems it works. :hihi:

    and for the record, i dont think the prices being lower have a thing to do with obama. i think its all on supply, demand, and futures prices. the circumstance just happened to have it lower when i filled up a couple of days ago.

    opec cant really squelch demand. demand for oil is to a large extent inelastic.

    Exactly. I get the big picture and you view the world through blinders.

    You were in diapers, but the OPEC first tried to use the "oil weapon" during the Oil Embargo of the 70's. It failed miserably and they have never tried it again. It made their customers get a lot more efficient and dropped demand considerably. They also discovered that they were more addicted to money than we were addicted to oil. They were too selfish to close the spigots for long.

    I didn't say it was on Obama. In the original article, the libs were blaiming earlier gas prices on Bush. I'm just disputing Red's supply and demand thesis.

    And you didn't get under my skin. Your analogy was apples and oranges. I still love you.
