If you would do that, I would read it. I can't vouch for agreement, but I do respect your opinion on such things.
I would not think that oil companies need tax breaks, but do think the windfall tax is stupid idea.

As to avoid getting lost in the shuffle of Clandestino bashing, I'll start a new thread (also meets the requirments of my one new thread ever quarter quota).
the biggest crooks are the companies selling city water in a bottle!!! hahaha.. that shit cracks me up.

Not only is our ground water soft, the Portland metro area gets most of it's water directly from the mountain run-off.
On top of that, I don't see how many reports where tap water is said to be safer and cleaner than bottled water in most cases.
I miss the 1/2 hr News hour...
Here's another one:
I gave up on finding the world maps I located years ago when I brewed beer. I used to have data on the contents of various mineral concentrations as well.
With more detailed resolution in numbers, the Oregon area was the softed region in the USA and not many places compared in the world. Unless you specifically want mineral water, good 'ol Orogon Tap water is just fine. So clean the chlorine levels aren't even noticable due to the small abount needed.
were getting close to busting this thread out again!!!
It may very well drop to about $50, given a global recession.
Even so, I predict it going up massively over the next 20 years. Sustained prices in the $200/bbl range at the end of that time is my best guess
It is creeping downwards...
I see it breaking the $50/bbl mark during the US recession.
wow, this is an epic thread, well before my time.

its $50 a barrell for one reason
There will likely not be a global "recession", as the overall global economic growth, even with a US recession is forecast to be positive over the next couple of years.
Better term: global slowdown. Positive growth, just not as much as we have had in the last few years.
Remember that the US economy, although still large, represents an increasingly shrinking part of the overall global economy.
I think the key is that what used to be basically the ceiling is now most likely the floor.
Note how everybody is happy about $2.00 per gallon gas when not that long ago everybody in Texas nearly had a stroke when they first saw it.
it was over 100 for a reason too.. opec fucking everyone... they are wanting to drop production now because the price is dropping so rapidly.
"opec fucking everyone"
Saudis said they had more oil for delivery than they had buyers. It wasn't even majoritarily a supply/demand mismatch.
Speculation (Wall St, etc) added many 10s of $ to the price at its peak, as they did to agricultural commodities months ago.
Speculators, having taking their profits, have fled commodities, for now.
Why would they suck bricks?
RG, it wont stay there. It will go back up. Demand is down, but it will increase with
the decrease in price.

It got so high because of speculation. Now the prediction is decreased demand because the economy is in the tank. I don't see what would get it much higher anytime soon.
It will go up if OPEC cuts supply, or if the economy suddenly picks up and starts demanding more oil.
If the economy continues to slide, expect prices to do the same.
Remember, the price is simply the intersection between the underlying supply and demand.
