    Gas this cheap sounds good but think of the devastating effects on our economy.

    The ripple effects of this may be a little deeper than some can grasp.

    Where do you think the lead had been all this time from the gas in the 70's?

    Exactly, oilfields are laying off in droves therefore all of the supportive services ( Halliburton and others) will have to lay folks off also, restaurants where the workers ate and socialized people moving on from the housing boom that was built to support this ( will now be a glut of empty places), Plug in electric cars will now sit laying autoworkers off ( once again), sheesh

    Does DIDO live in the BOG too?

    I live in reality just like you. I just have a better appreciation for how funny it can be if you pay attention.

    Years of neocons complaining about obama and how he's respsonsible for high gas prices. Now we've got low gas prices and here you are complaining about them. I have no trouble finding the humor in that.

    So now, don't be surprised when all of a sudden you will hear 'there was a refinery ( or two) in the midwest ( or gulf) taken off-line for maintenance..... ok... suure slow the production, price will rise... we all Know that will happen...

    But I would much rather have it down when there's plenty of it as opposed to the other way around ( which in the past is when it usually happens).

    I actually expected them to do this a month ago. Trouble is there is so much extra oil sitting around and people know about it this time. They can't use the old tired running out of fossil fuels scare that has work for them for 50 years anymore. I'm sure they will think of something.

    HAHAH.. are you serious?

    More money in the middle class pockets means the more spending they do. Thus, the economy booms.

    Less money in the middle class pockets means the LESS spending they do and the economy tanks, IE: GW BUSH.

    If you are referring to the oil industry economy, then that is a separate issue, but dont worry, there isnt an oil company going broke anytime soon.
